A Holistic Approach to Food Cravings for Metabolic Flexibility and Healthy Weight Management
Food cravings and the irresistible urge to eat unhealthy food are significant causes of weight gain leading to metabolic disorders. For example, as pointed out in this review paper in MDPI, “previous studies indicate that eating behaviors and food cravings are associated with increased BMI and obesity”.
As the body and mind are connected, our thoughts and emotions play a critical role in creating our behavior and habits for physical manifestation. For example, when we balance the body and mind’s needs, we might have a better hormonal profile. We need to keep the brain young and active. Thus, a holistic approach to our food cravings is essential for metabolic flexibility, weight management, and happy life.
Therefore, mindful awareness of our thoughts and feelings can put us in a better position to control our urges. For example, if we can observe, analyze, and find ways to reduce our cravings, we can improve our mood and manage our weight more effectively.
A holistic approach to our food cravings can be helpful for our metabolic flexibility, managing weight, and having a joyful life. The body and mind are inseparable. They work better when we create a good balance of our biochemistry. Health is all about homeostasis.
