1. Carry a bottle of carrot or carrot-apple juice with you wherever you go.
Always, no exception. Why? It helps to balance serotonin levels throughout the day and avoid blood sugar crashes. Poor blood sugar control is involved in every addiction - and that's something you can avoid, if you plan ahead.
2. Schedule your meals same time within an hour every day.
This could be having breakfast 8 AM, lunch 12 PM, Snack 3 PM, Dinner 7 PM. The body likes consistency and anything that is inconsistent will set off the alarms and trigger cravings.
3. Drink honey-sweetened green tea with meals.
Have some honey sweetened green tea with your meals. Green tea helps digest fat. Liver and fat digestion is always an issue in recovery. The sweetness from the honey helps to give the brain the sugar it needs to stop sending off hunger signals constantly. Do not go low carb in recovery - it is a recipe for disaster, both due to the fact that your body is not used to burning fat for fuel yet and thus goes in alarm mode, if carbs are restricted too much. That and honey contains serotonin - again a mood-booster food.
