When making the lifestyle changes you need to make in order to change your body shape, it is not going to be easy and there are no quick fixes.

Sorry to keep reminding you of this. There is simply no quick fix to change.

You absolutely must stick to your plan, stay consistent and stick with your nutrition.

As we previously discussed, if you are wanting to lose weight, there is no way around it, you must be in a calorific deficit.

Sticking to this deficit is extremely hard with all the temptations of every day life in your face with every turn you take.

Today I am going to share a few of our simple strategies you can implement from today in order to take back control and not gorge on your cravings. Eat an egg.

Seriously. Whenever you feel like you have a craving, have a boiled egg or add a spoonful of coconut oil to a cup of green tea or black coffee as that will help curb the sugar cravings.

The companies who manufacture and sell these treats are very clever in what they do.

Sugar is addictive and the beautiful taste of your favourite treat is made that way for a purpose. So you buy and buy again. However, stick to these few little strategies and you will not only save yourself some money on your treats, but your results will come faster and the body fat will begin to drop off.

A big one we use at night time, is to clean your teeth a few hours before bed.

That way you won’t be tempted by chocolate as your breath will be all nice and minty. The biggest thing that will help you resist your cravings is your why. Going back to what we touched on last week. Always remember why you started on this quest and ask yourself, is a chocolate bar going to help you on your journey.

This might be a little counterintuitive, because a chocolate bar might help you, but only one.

Do not gorge every night because you are stressed or you have had a bad day.

Short term satisfaction of a chocolate bar, will not yield long term results.

That, I promise you.

Should you want more information or any specific help with your fat loss and fitness goals, do not hesitate to pop your head in the studio.
