If You Crave...

What You Really Need Is...

It's 3:30 p.m., you've had a day that's been jammed pack with meetings, appointments, and running errands that have taken you all over the city. On a normal day at this time you are craving something sweet, but after a day like today your are an all out fiend.​​

Ever wonder why?

We can almost guarantee that it is not because what ever your go to sweet treat is, is irresistibly delicious, but that you are probably lacking a certain nutrient in your diet.

In this Wellness Wednesday post, we are giving you the skinny on what could actually be causing these cravings and as an added bonus, we'll show you healthy options to satisfy your hunger!

Keep reading for some great information!

1.  Chocolate

Chocolate cravings usually result from a lack of magnesium in your body.In stead of hitting the candy isle at the closest gas station, reach for some raw nuts and seeds instead. Fruit is another great alternative and it's good for your body! Some good fruits to chose from are: oranges, cantaloupe, grapes, watermelon, grapefruit, honeydew melons, bananas, strawberries, and blueberries.

2.  Soda & Other Carbonated Drinks

Your body is trying to tell you that it needs calcium.  Here's another important piece of advice for you--the solution for getting more calcium is not always milk (while milk is a source of calcium, our recommendations take a different approach).Trade in the soda for something green and leafy instead!  Satisfy your craving for carbonation with these healthy options: mustard and turnip greens, broccoli, kale, legumes, cheese or sesame.

3. Preference For Solids Over Liquids

If you find yourself really CRAVING solid food as apposed to something liquid, you need to focus on increasing your water intake.This craving is usually caused by dehydration.  You have been dehydrated for so longthat you have lost your thirst.   Flavor your water using real lemons or limes to put a stop to the craving. 

REMEMBER: You should consume at least 1/2 your body weight in oz. of water DAILY!

4.  Salty Foods

In the mood for something salty? Before you grab a bag of chips, take a minute to find out why....the nutrient your body is lacking in is chloride.Instead of eating chips that are high in fats and oils, try eating some not so oily fish seasoned with your favorite spices, pepper, and unrefined sea salt.

Are there ever times where it seems like your cravings are the ones in control?  

It's time for you to take back control over your cravings!

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • Melanie and Morgan along with the entire staff at Bello Voi are fantastic. Everyone is extremely knowledgeable, caring, understanding, and truly enjoy seeing everyone succeed in their journey to better health. My journey was not always easy, but they were there to push me through the hard days, and celebrate each step forward. With the start of the 2 week detox program, Melanie's guidance on nutrition, Red Light Therapy, and body wraps I was not only able to hit my goal, but exceed the numbers I had set. My 5 month journey was a complete lifestyle change, but I was able to loose 17 pounds and a total of 25" overall!! I HIGHLY recommend making that first appointment. It will change your life, and self confidence!

  • Morgan was so awesome, polite and professional..services was perfect and my first session went great..Morgan gave great home instructions for my nutrition diet

    Ethel Molden

  • I was truly shocked at how well my treatments worked in a short amount of time. I have struggled to lose weight over the years because I work so much. 30 minutes 2x a week was easy. I lost 28 lbs in 6 weeks with my light sessions. The staff is so knowledgeable, and I can tell that they put their heart and attention into their clients. Bello Voi’s Red Light Machine was able to cover my entire body. I have seen other places offer similar services around my home town, but the atmosphere at Bello Voi helped me to relax at the same time I got my treatment. As a client I also get discounts on supplements and other services that they offer.
