Hard to GET RID of the MUNCHIES? 8 Must-know TIPS to STOP cravings when you are HIGH.


Introduction

The munchies are a real thing, and they’re caused by a lot of different factors, like eating too much or not enough. If you’re trying to lose weight or maintain your current weight, then the munchies can make it really hard. So if you can’t stop eating when you’re high, here are some tips to help you get through it:


Don’t Eat The Foods You’re Craving

In order to get rid of the munchies, you’re going to have to stop eating for a little while. Instead, try going for a walk or getting outside. If you’re feeling the need for some social interaction, call up some friends and head out together.


It may seem counterintuitive—after all, what is more appealing than fresh homemade nachos? But when it comes to your health and weight loss goals in general, you should choose healthier alternatives over junk food.


If you can't do without something sweet (like ice cream) or salty (something like popcorn), there are plenty of healthy options that won't cause an increase in cravings later on: fruits and vegetables will fill your craving for something crunchy or sweet respectively; nuts give you protein with less fat; yogurt gives calcium; breads provide carbohydrates! And best yet? All of these have fewer calories than their higher-calorie counterparts!


Drink Water

Drinking water is one of the best ways to combat the munchies, as it can help your body absorb nutrients, flush out toxins and get rid of fat. Water also makes you feel full and stops you from eating when you're not hungry.


Your body needs water to digest food properly. As long as we're breathing, our bodies are always losing fluids through sweat, urine and bowel movements—and that's why we need to replace them with the right amount of water each day. Our kidneys filter out waste products from our blood; without enough water in our bodies these can build up in our system causing dehydration which can lead to a number of health problems including constipation or diarrhea (depending on how much fluid we've lost). Dehydration has been linked with headaches too because when cells dry out they shrink so more pressure is put on them which causes pain!


In addition it's important for us not just for survival but also mental function: being alert means being able to focus better at work or school so try drinking plenty throughout the day (aiming for 8 glasses per day) instead of chugging down two bottles while studying late into evening hours.



Get Active

Exercise is a great way to burn calories, reduce stress and sleep better. You should exercise because you feel like it and not because you want to lose weight—the benefits are really endless! But, if you're going to work out while high, here's what we recommend:

  • Start small. Take a short walk around your block or do some jumping jacks at home before bedtime.

  • Find an activity that doesn't involve any heavy lifting (e.g., yoga or pilates), since coordination might be off when you're high on weed.

  • Do aerobic exercises for at least 20 minutes per session; this will make sure that you get enough oxygen into your brain so that it can function properly after consuming all of that cannabis!

Avoid Refined Carbs

As a general rule, refined carbs should be avoided when you’re high. Refined carbohydrates (like white bread and sugar) are bad for your gut, brain and waistline. They can also cause spikes in blood sugar levels that will leave you feeling tired and lethargic. If you want to avoid getting the munchies while high, stick to vegetables like broccoli or cauliflower instead of hot chips or sugary drinks.


Have Some Protein Instead (And Don’t Be Afraid Of Fat)

You can have some protein instead of eating food that’s high in fat and sugar. Protein is one of the best foods to eat when you have the munchies because it fills you up quickly, keeps you full for longer, and helps your body burn fat more efficiently. It’s also good for your brain—high-protein diets are commonly recommended as a way to prevent age-related memory loss or dementia, while low-protein diets may contribute to cognitive decline.



Protein is also good for your muscles: eating protein after exercise can help repair muscle damage faster than if no additional protein was consumed post-workout. In addition, consuming enough protein every day will help build new muscle tissue (which makes exercising easier) and protect existing muscle from being broken down during workouts or everyday activities!



Eat Foods High In Fiber And Antioxidants

If you're suffering from the munchies, then you may want to consider eating more fiber-rich foods. Fiber helps keep your digestive system healthy and regular, which will go a long way in preventing food cravings. In addition to its role in digestion, fiber also helps improve heart health by lowering cholesterol levels.


Antioxidants are another nutrient that can help get rid of the munchies. Antioxidants are naturally occurring chemicals in fruits and vegetables that help combat cell damage caused by free radicals (substances created when our bodies break down food). When we eat them regularly, it helps keep our immune system strong and prevents chronic diseases like cancer from forming in our bodies.

To add more antioxidant-rich foods into your diet:

  • Add nuts or seeds to salads or yogurt parfaits for extra crunch! Try adding almonds or walnuts for an extra boost!

  • Include berries as part of your breakfast smoothie! Berries tend to be lower calorie than other fruit options so they'll fill you up without filling you out!


Take A Tincture Or Edible To Reduce Your Appetite

What if you’re one of those people who just can’t stop eating when you’re high? What if the munchies are real and they won't go away? If so, then try taking a THCV tincture or edible to reduce your appetite. Tinctures are MCT emulsions that contain the cannabinoids from cannabis flowers. Edibles are food products infused with marijuana oil.


While there is not much research on how these products affect weight gain in general, some studies have shown that certain types of THCV tinctures and edibles may help with weight loss by reducing hunger and increasing metabolism by improving insulin sensitivity (a precursor for diabetes).


It's important to note that these effects don't last forever—so plan ahead when using them as an aid for controlling overeating at parties or during meals.



You can stop the munchies before they start.

You can stop the munchies before they start.

  • Eat healthy foods and drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated. Hydration is a key component in regulating your appetite, and it’s important to maintain proper bodily function while under the influence of cannabis.

  • Exercise to increase your metabolism and induce feelings of satiety after meals. This will prevent you from overindulging on snacks later on in the day (or night).

  • Avoid refined carbohydrates—think white bread, pastries and soda—and instead indulge in whole grains like brown rice, quinoa or barley; fruits like apples or berries; vegetables like broccoli or spinach; meats with moderate fat content such as lean beef or turkey breast; fish with low mercury levels (such as salmon), dairy products that are low-fat/non-fat: yogurt cheese feta cheese cottage cheese greek yogurt plain nonfat yogurt etc... Eggs are also a good source of protein but should be limited due to their cholesterol content if you have high blood pressure problems."


Conclusion

If you’re someone who likes to eat when they’re high, there are plenty of ways to get rid of those munchies. Don’t eat the foods that you crave and drink water instead! Exercise is also important because it helps your body flush out any toxins from your system. Finally, try taking a THCV tincture or edible to reduce your appetite before eating something delicious.
