Easy Ways to Replace Those 'Bad for You' Foods

Easy Ways to Replace Those 'Bad for You' Foods

Published: August 1, 2011

Learning what to eat is just as important as learning what to avoid.

Eat the wrong foods and chances are you will undermine all attempts to control your appetite.

Eat the right foods and you might be surprised at how easy it is to give up even the worst habits.

Following are the leading culinary culprits that leave you wanting more, as well as some easy replacements sure to satisfy:

DonutsSalt: High sodium intake not only increases blood pressure, but it leaves you wanting more. Substitute salt with fresh herbs to enjoy the flavor without the craving.

Sugar: Satisfy a sweet tooth by using natural alternatives like stevia instead of sugar. Not only will eliminating sugar also control cravings associated with fluctuating glucose levels, but eliminating sugar is a great way to lose weight and reduce the risk of late-onset type 2 diabetes.

Fat: Fat comes in all shapes and sizes, but butter and oils are often the most frequently encountered in the modern diet. Replace fats with slow-burning carbohydrates or proteins to obtain the same fullness and fuel your body.

Most foods combine two or more of the above ingredients to create an even more powerful sensation designed to increase cravings.

Limit the ingredient list to only one of each item to minimize the impact. Better yet, replace them with an easy-to-use alternative.

Within weeks you will feel satisfied without the constant cravings.
