Why Women Get Strange Food Cravings While Pregnant

8/19 11:01:27

Some people get strange food cravings all the time, but the point in life when you are most likely to get them is while you are pregnant. The majority of women have strange food cravings at least once over the duration of their pregnancy, and some of these cravings are incredibly strange. Pickles and ice cream is the most commonly experienced strange food craving, but there are many others as well.

If you are ever experiencing strange food cravings, you should know that if you are pregnant it is okay if you give in to them once in a while. After all, you are pregnant and so you don’t want to deny yourself of all your cravings.

It is the problem when you start giving in to your cravings all the time if they are for unhealthy foods, where you can end up gaining too much weight and possibly causing problems for you or your baby.

Tips

Now if you get strange food cravings for unhealthy food all the time, there are a few tips that are going to be very helpful to you here. For one, you should know that there are some great healthy alternatives that you can eat, to replace the sweets and salty snacks that you may be craving for.

If you get sugar cravings, try some fresh fruit. Most fruit is very sweet tasting and can often satisfy even the most intense cravings. Now if you are craving salty foods, these can be just as bad and unhealthy for you as sugary foods.

Taking a walk or otherwise getting outside and getting active is one of the best things that you can do to curb your cravings. Remember, cravings usually only last for about fifteen minutes and so as long as you can make it through this, the craving should be gone and you can get back to your day.

It is also comforting to know that just as with other bad habits such as smoking, if you are trying to cut the sugar and salt out of your diet, the first few days are going to be the worst. Especially if you have been consuming large amounts of sugar and salt in your diet, it is going to be intensely difficult to get over the first few days without giving in to your cravings.

But think of how great it will be and how proud you will be of yourself once you make it past the first couple of days.
