Today is day 4 of the 30-Day Re-Introduction Challenge.
The cravings hit me this morning. I was fine Monday-Wednesday, but not today. I want to eat every piece of bread and candy I can find.
But I won’t. I’m being careful to cope with these cravings so I don’t fall off-track.
The first thing I do when a craving hits me especially hard is drink 1/2 glass of water. If after 10 minutes I’m still feeling it, then I have go-to snacks I planned out earlier in the week: Fresh cherries, roasted almonds, or if I am really hungry, a banana. The water is a good first response because it placates me and keeps me hydrated while helping my body flush out the gunk.
Of course, the cravings aren’t at zero and likely won’t be for another week and a half, but I am keeping the gluten dogs at bay by sticking to my plan.
Do you have a plan to deal with cravings so you don’t fall off? Let me know in the comments.
