These exotic super foods:
- Help balance your hormones and increases your natural resting metabolism.
- Help increase how many calories you burn naturally throughout the day.
- Help make you feel full and satisfied for hours so you don’t crave sweets or junk food.
The foods I am about to tell you about, actually flip the “hunger switch” in your brain that tells your body you are full and satisfied.
When this “hunger switch” is flipped it’s makes sticking to your good eating habits easier.
Let’s take a look at the 4 super foods…
#1 – ORGANIC COCOA
The truth is Cocoa might just be the most beneficial food on the planet.
It has been proven to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, cancer, Alzheimer’s, dementia, diabetes, and unhealthy cholesterol levels.
In fact, cocoa contains more antioxidant activity, polyphenols and flavanols than other fruits tested, which included blueberries and Acai berries.
Combine this with cocoa’s proven positive effects on the neurotransmitters responsible for your emotions, and cocoa could be called nature’s greatest mood booster and antidepressant.
Your cravings have a strong connection to your emotional state, and cocoa is one of the best ways in the world to flip your “hunger switch”, stop emotional eating, and end your worst food cravings once and for all.
Knowing all that you should ask yourself… “are you getting enough cocoa in your diet?”
#2 – ORGANIC CASHEW BUTTER
If you have never had cashew butter the best way I can describe it is like peanut butter that tastes more like vanilla and almond ice cream.
In addition to being delicious, the nutritional and psychological aspects of cashews are astonishing.
Healthy amounts of:
- and Vitamin K
Plus, plenty of powerful phytonutrients, such as antioxidants, tyrosinase, melanin, elastin, proanthocyanidins, and oleic acid. These nutrients tell your brain that you are full and satisfied.
Additionally, cashews can improve memory, lower blood pressure, protect against heart disease, and reduce the risk of cancer and diabetes.
Combine their sweet buttery flavor with their health and brain boosting nutrition, and cashews are your best friend when it comes to kicking your cravings to the curb.
#3 – ORGANIC COCONUT
Coconut is a key ingredient on your quest to end your cravings.
Science has proven that the flavour compounds found in coconut produce a natural, safe, and powerful feeling of decadence and indulgence.
That means you feel like you’re being naughty but are actually giving your body the nutrition it needs to perform at it’s best and effortlessly shed extra pounds while you still feel full.
Even better, recent studies on coconut have shown that it boosts your metabolism, increases your body’s ability to burn fat, and curbs cravings for sweets.
Decadent taste plus almost unbelievable fat-burning and hormonal benefits means you need to make coconut your friend today if you want to conquer your cravings.
Now, food #4 is going to be your new secret weapon to stay fuller, longer than you ever thought possible.
It’s not as exotic as the first 3 foods, yet when you combine it with the foods we just talked about as I will show you in a moment, it will put an end to your cravings once and for all!
#4 – ORGANIC CHIA SEEDS
Chia seeds are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. They are loaded with fiber, protein, antioxidants, Omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients.
The reason chia seeds are such a potent tool to fight your hunger and can drastically reduce appetite and cravings is due to their high fiber and protein content.
In addition to reducing your risk for nearly all major cancers, mental diseases, diabetes, and heart disease, chia is a powerful weapon in your arsenal to beat your cravings as it can absorb up to 27 times its weight in water.
This causes chia to literally fill up your stomach and leaves you feeling comfortably full and satisfied for hours!
I put chia seeds into my green smoothie EVERY morning for all the reasons above and so should you. Or sprinkle some on your yogurt or salad or oatmeal.
Here is a recipe that uses coconut, cocoa powder and a nut butter of your choice, but using cashew butter will definitely up the sweetness factor vs almond butter. And if you want to amp up the protein factor than you can also add to the recipe 1 scoop of whey protein which is what I do because I want protein in everything I eat.
If you need help getting your nutrition on track, especially as we head into the holiday and party season, then send me a message and we will set up a time to chat.
