Hi Vicki!! I have a problem. It's kind of stupid, but here we go. I'm overweight (but i'm pretty confident and loving my body) and i'm trying to lose some weight so I've been eating more healthy and cutting down on snacks and sweets, but it's kind of hard, since every month, when i get my period, I get extreme chocolate cravings. Nothing helps. I always go to the store and buy chocolate. At least a 100g bar, usually more. Then I eat the whole thing in like an hour. I just finished one, but i need to know how can I suppress my appetite? I can't keep eating loads of chocolate if i'm trying to lose weight.. Also, i've tried, dark chocolate doesn't work. I need help.
Sweet treats such as chocolate will only quench your craving for a very short time, leaving you feeling hungry and craving even more sweet things almost immediately after. So avoid the store, take items to school or college with you, such as bananas, grapes or nuts. And increase the amount of food you eat at lunch so you feel fuller for longer. Here are a couple of other tips that appear to work; drink a glass of water and then see if you still crave sweet treats. Are you hungry enough to eat an apple, if not then you really are not hungry. And finally, when tempted to visit a shop, get active and jog or march right past it, even exercise like this for 15 minutes will lessen your appetite until the cravings have passed.
