Everyone has probably already heard about this trick: if we really want something, it means that the body “requires” it. Why and why is he signalling to us? It's simple - it lacks certain micro-and macronutrients.
The fact is that human nutrition must satisfy the physiological needs of the body for nutrients, balanced among themselves in optimal proportions, and the body is constantly losing minerals. Therefore, in order to maintain a normal life, this shortage must be replenished daily. And the body gives a signal. Only we do not always understand it correctly and run to please ourselves with tasty, but harmful. As a result, an important need is not closed, and extra pounds grow because it is difficult to extract health benefits from sausages and sausages. But there are plenty of unhealthy fats in such products. Let's figure out how to recognize the "requests" of the body.
If you want ...
If you want smoked meats and sausages, lard, the body does not have enough fat. They are best obtained from redfish, nuts, fatty dairy or fermented milk products. The desire to eat ice cream suggests the same thing - not enough healthy fats. Eat nuts or avocados.
The craving for a burger indicates a deficiency in iron, B vitamins, and folate. Liver, eggs, beef, buckwheat, apples, tomato juice, lentils, peanuts, tuna will help fill the shortage.
If you want a sweet soda (lack of calcium ), satisfy the body's needs with hard cheese or feta cheese, cottage cheese, sesame seeds, sardines.
If you want chocolate (lack of magnesium ), eat a piece of hard cheese, some bran, sorrel or cashews, and boil cocoa. You can also drink some dark chocolate (at least 75% of the cocoa beans in the composition) or try looking for mineral water with magnesium on the market.
If the need for micro-and macronutrients is satisfied, and you still crave sweets unbearably, this is a reason to give it up at least for a while. You may already be developing an addiction. Read on to find out how to quit sugar in the right way.
