I found a great picture online on pinterest called “control your cravings” This is in reference to http://www.luxcoaching.wordpress.com. It is PERFECT, I had to share! If you’re having cravings, chances are you’re lacking a specific nutrient and your body is telling you that you need this nutrient to function properly! Some of these are a little harder to connect which one you’re lacking but it’s a great guideline. Pay attention, don’t let cravings side track you!
Chocolate – This ones for the ladies! You’re lacking Magnesium. Eat things like: Nuts, seeds, legumes and fruit.
Sugary foods & sweets - You could be lacking Chromium (eat broccoli, grapes, cheese, chicken), Carbon (Fresh fruit), Phosphorous (Chicken, beef, fish, eggs, dairy, nuts, legumes or grains), Sulphur (Cranberries, horseradish, cauliflower, broccoli or cabbage), or Tryptophan (Cheese, liver, lamb, raisins, spinach, or sweet potato.)
Bread, pasta, other carbs – Lacking Nitrogen. Eat high protein foods such as meat, fish nuts and beans.
Oily/Greasy/Fatty Foods – Lacking Cacium. Try eating cheese, legumes, yoghurt, milk, broccoli, or green leafy vegetables.
Salty foods - Chloride (fish or goats milk) or Silicon (nuts or seeds)
Hope this helps everyone stay on track!
