What are your food cravings telling you?

We all know that feeling when your need for a biscuit goes from non-existent to all-encompassing. This all-too-familiar sensation is known as a food craving and we can often feel powerless against its gastrointestinal demands. While it would be nice if we craved kale and quinoa, usually we long for something sweet, salty or fried — unhealthy food. Even if we think our minds are more powerful than our stomachs, we still find ourselves reaching for that tub of ice cream or bag of potato crisps. 

And though it may seem that there is no escaping these pesky yearnings, like most complicated relationships it takes a level of understanding to see any change. By simply taking a moment to examine your overwhelming urges, you can start to fight them off or satisfy them in a healthier way. “Most cravings indicate a deficiency in the body,” says wellness expert Robyn Youkillis. “It’s all about cracking the code.”

Drew and Jonathan Scott have turned their real estate and contracting backgrounds into uber-successful TV careers as the hosts of HGTV’s Property Brothers, Brother Vs. Brother, Buying and Selling, and Property Brothers At Home. But with their busy schedules, they’ve found themselves spending more time in other people’s homes than their own.

“We are on the road filming pretty much 10 months of the year and we travel weekly for live appearances and press,” Jonathan tells me. "In fact, Drew only gets home a few weeks a year.” 

But the duo haven’t let this lack of a normal routine stop them from living healthfully — they’ve figured out a way to squeeze in workouts and find healthy dining options on-the-go, despite limited time and access to a kitchen. (Or, at least one that’s not being demolished.)
