A lot of the people I get to work with complain about having a strong resolve to eat healthy but then cravings hit and it all goes out the window. Especially for women around the luteal phase of their cycle, when they are injured, or if they are feeling under the weather (hint: these are all times that your body may need more carbohydrates!). Now you could be tough on yourself and say that you need more discipline, yada yada yada, but discipline is a muscle that fatigues, so let's figure out why, and what to do about it. Some of this might have to do with the on average 335 advertisements of processed JUNK that the American consumer is bombarded with daily, but it also could be your body's way of communicating that it needs more of something.
