The Four Root Causes of Cravings

The Four Root Causes of Cravings

Do you ever wonder why you get cravings?

Last year, I sat down with Alexandra Jamieson  to talk about food addiction, cravings, and much more. One of my favorite parts of our conversation was her explanation of the four root causes of cravings.  

First, let me tell you a little bit about Alexandra. She is the co-creator and co-starred in the Oscar nominated film, Super Size Me. She coaches women going through big life shake-ups to double-down on self-care, nutrition, and pleasure, and master a positive mindset, to create the energy and peace they desire in their bodies, so they can be resilient, effective and happy in their lives. She’s also published four books.

In our conversation we talk about the following root causes for cravings:

  • Bacterial
  • Nutritional
  • Emotional
  • Physical

We also talk about how to address them. This is an important conversation that you won’t want to miss.

Do you deal with food cravings? What has worked for you and what hasn’t? Let’s take the conversation to Facebook. I’d love to hear from you.

Wishing you health and happiness,
