It’s important to listen to your body. Figure out what types of foods you’re craving so you can form a strategy to fight them. And indulge in treats occasionally, as deprivation can lead to binges, but don’t give in every time.

If you always want something sweet after a meal, a cup of tea with honey should scratch that itch.
