Welcome to Ask Whole9 Canada, where Summer Innanen and Sarah Ramsden answer all of your health and nutrition questions. In this week’s episode, Kristina asks, “What strategies would you recommend for dealing with my food cravings?”
Cravings or strong desires for certain foods, are something that many people struggle with. We talk a lot about how our desires for food can be the result of our unhealthy psychological response to food, hormonal imbalances and stress in our workshops, and it is covered in detail in It Starts With Food. The Whole30 is designed to help you reset your psychological and hormonal response to food, and most people find their cravings reduce dramatically.
Cravings are your body’s way of sending you messages about your hormones, what’s missing with your current food intake, and the potential stress you have in your life. It’s important not to ignore them, rather figure out why they are there in the first place in order to address the issue. In this episode of S&STV, we discuss the physical and emotional components of cravings and what to do about them.

Question to ask on ice cream…. Ice cream that is made with coconut milk and has no sugar or dairy… Is this ok to eat? The name of it is “so delicious dairy free coconut milk sugar free– chocolate “. Obviously this is eaten in moderation.
Just started and I am looking forward to what lies ahead. Thanks for the help and the inspiration.
This helped me a lot on my weight loss journey.
