How to avoid eating junk food!

Many people find it hard to resist the urges and temptations of these ‘snacks’ mainly because they are everywhere you go, and once you start, it becomes a downward spiral. Foods like biscuits, cakes, soft drinks, chocolates and other refined sweet foods usually indicate dehydration, a lack of or imbalances in your blood sugar, chromium and magnesium levels in your body. 

Once we have one of these types of foods, our body then begins to crave these sugary carbs, we indulge again, And we end up just suppressing the cravings temporarily but having them again later. One way of overcoming this craving is to snack on fruits which provides you with natural sugars, rather than refined sugars (bad sugars) or simply get in the habit of drinking more water - often we mistake dehydration for hunger.

Another good way of avoiding junk food is by surrounding yourself with healthy foods/snacks - get rid of all the unhealthy foods in you cupboard that you keep eating and replace them with healthy foods, Avoid the temptation by removing the temptations. 

Personally If I have some chocolate or junk food lying around the house, there is every chance that at some point I will eat it, that’s not because I want it or need it, that is solely because it’s there, if it wasn’t I wouldn’t eat it, simple as that. Don’t get me wrong, i like a chocolate bar every now and then, but i use it as a treat, rather than a regular snack
