i know im not the only one that craves pizza or ice cream every once in a while! but what are some ways to control my calorie count and minimize my cravings?

You can also find healthier alternatives! I just recently got almond milk ice cream from whole foods and it's great with the reduced guilt

Instead of popcorn I get baby carrots or nuts, instead of soda I drink smoothies (I but the ones from the store called Naked) , and instead of ice cream get yogurt , or just fill yourself up so u can stop craving . I don't really like pizza , but I rat spaghetti , has good protein .

The way I do it is to --- eat them --- with 50% less quantity!! I usually also have 1/2 stalk of celery sticks soon to follow after fatty/junk food. That way, I feel like I'm cleansing the system :)

Hope this help!

Water, eat minimum of what you want then do a detox (that's how I do it), or I try to create a healthy alternative

Eat a small portion of dark chocolate about 5 blocks . one for every craving throughout the day accompanying with a palm full of nuts and small fruit like blueberries and a glass of water every time. This should kill cravings fill you up and burn fat

But eating five blocks of chocolate a day is just crazy. Rather save them for the weekend, have a cheat day and eat ten blocks then. Dark chocolate has less sugar, yes, but it's still a whole lot of sugar.

truth is im definitely not a dark chocolate person! but i do lower my sugar count by taking a lot of things out of my diet.

Also, nuts are packed with healthy fats and so on but they're really calorie dense. Five blocks of dark chocolate and five palmfuls of nuts can add up to a thousand calories (!!) to your daily calorie count. You could've just as well eaten a couple of bars of regular chocolate and on top of that some biscuits.

im on a 2,000 calorie diet right now so 1,000 calories a day sort of holds me back on what i can eat
