If you are experiencing intense food cravings, you are not alone. It is extremely common. When we feel like cravings control us, it can be very stressful, like a constant draining battle. If you read my book The Earth Diet you know that I was addicted to junk foods for 5 years. It was a nightmare, I tried to stop every day but it didn’t work.

I dreaded waking up each day because I knew at some point the cravings would hit and that I could not control them.

The Earth Diet gave me access to the health I wanted, free of addiction and finally in control of my cravings.

Here are my top 10 tips for getting control of your cravings. I applied these to my own life, and I recommend them to my clients via Earth Diet Health Coaching:

1. Replace Your Biggest Cravings With Natural Alternatives


What is it that you crave most? For me it was chocolate, I would binge eat on processed chocolate that had refined white GMO sugar, dairy, soy, gluten and preservatives.

I wanted to have chocolate in my life and have it work for me, providing me health benefits but not the toxins.

I replaced processed chocolate with raw chocolate made with real ingredients. I would make my own using recipes in The Earth Diet.
– If you crave cheesecake you could try Cashew cheesecake.
– There are also healthier version recipes for chicken nuggets, and ice cream! It is all about upgrades.
– If you crave chips, go for the organic non-gmo brands.
– If you crave soda go for kombucha.

2. Get Nutrient Rich Food Every Day

Most of us are nutrient deficient and so we crave quick fix fast foods like sweets and fried foods to quickly satisfy.

You will find that when you completely nourish yourself with nutrient rich foods and drinks every day you will crave less of the ‘bad stuff’.

The quickest way to get nutrition to the cells at a very instant level is by having fresh juice every day, smoothies and lemon water are also great options. When we give ourselves a good base nutrition, we relieve a lot of guilt. Often times when we feel guilty we crave more things that make us feel guilty, it’s a vicious cycle. The better you feel, the more you will want to keep that momentum going.

3. Detox Toxins, Worms, Parasites and Candida

Cleanse your system including the cells that ‘remember’ the cravings. When we do a major detox, we feel so fresh and clean we don’t crave foods that will pollute our system.

There are detox guides in the Earth Diet book.
– You could also drink bentonite clay daily to help with absorbing toxins, worms, parasites and candida.
– Sweating in a sauna and doing intense cardio workouts to get your heart beating is also helpful.

4. Eat Superfoods Like Tigernuts

Tigernuts are a vegetable root and naturally very sweet. They also take a while to chew and can help break cravings for candy and sugary things.

– Hemp seeds can help to break cravings to fried foods and fatty foods because they nourish the brain with omegas.

5. Commit To Clean It Up

If you do give in to a craving and have a soda or conventional burger, allow yourself to fully enjoy it. You may as well since you will be having it anyway.

– As you eat it, enjoy and savor each bite, and think “I love myself” the entire time.
-Commit to yourself to have a lemon water, bentonite clay or fresh juice afterwards to assist with the digestion and cleansing it out. Keep the balance.
