Craving cutting supplements:
- Vitamin D3: When Vitamin D levels are low, the hormone that helps turn off your appetite doesn’t work and people feel hungry all the time, no matter how much they eat.
Action: Get your vitamin D tested so that you know how much to supplement. Best source is the sun, but if you have very fair skin or a history of skin cancer then supplement via food and Vitamin D3.
- Omega3 Fatty Acids: Low levels of omega three fatty acids are involved in normal brain cell function, insulin control and inflammation.
Action: Eat low heavy metal exposed fatty fish 3/week (Cold water fish: herring, mackerel, salmon, trout, tuna)
AND/OR – non-fish rich foods in the ‘odd’ Omegas like walnuts, soy beans, chia seeds, and flax seeds
- Craving Control: glutamine, 5HTP and amino acids may help reduce cravings.
Action: Add more lean proteins and good fats to your meals at EVERY MEAL
- Control Cortisol: Try to control cortisol levels which may also sabatage weight loss efforts.
Action: Get your Cortisol Curve (not a single cortisol blood but a four point cortisol curve) tested by a physician trained to do so.
