    Do you love your weed habit but hate feeling like Shaggy and Scooby-Doo when you’re high?

    Those refrigerator raids could be taking away many of the benefits you should be getting when you use marijuana. Junk food binges look funny on TV, thanks to our old cartoon pals. In real life, though, they’re dangerous.

    Not only is it possible to gain weight, but the ingredients in those unhealthy binges come with long-term deadly side effects.

    The ironic part of this is that weed is full of benefits for your mind and body! So, if you could cancel out the unwanted subscription to the brownie binges and keep the good stuff, that’d be great, right?

    Well, we have some good news for you.

    You can eat healthy while smoking weed. You just have to prepare for the future while you’re in present thinking-smarter mode, and this is how you do it.

    1. Take a Crash Course in Nutrition Basics 101

    If you asked most people how their current diet affect their health, the majority wouldn’t have an accurate answer.

    There’s nothing inherently wrong with this. We don’t get much instruction on nutrition in school, and if our parents didn’t know, they couldn’t pass that knowledge down to us.

    But, as they say, ignorance is no excuse.

    Your heart doesn’t care that you don’t know the difference between good or bad cholesterol. It’s still preparing your arteries for that heart attack down the line as you load up on burgers and fries.

    It’s your job to learn the basics of nutrition and what you should and shouldn’t eat. Armed with that integral information, you can make better decisions when you’re shopping.

    And if your cupboards aren’t full of chips and oreos, you can’t eat them when you have the munchies.

    Binge that broccoli instead! No one ever had after-eating remorse over too many green veggies.

    2. Practice Portioning All Day

    You know that feeling you get when you’ve eaten too much and your stomach is hanging over your pants? It’s the fine line between “this is soooo yummy, I have to have more” and “why in the world did I eat so much?”

    What you might not realize is that the “line” is created by the capacity of your stomach to hold what you’re eating. Naturally, our stomachs are only about the size of our fist.

    Yes, one fist.

    When it’s empty, it contracts and shrinks down to resting size. But it can stretch far enough to hold more than 75 times that amount.

    Training Your Stomach’s Normal

    The constant stretching and contracting that happens when you eat too much teaches your stomach muscles “muscle memory.” So, however you eat regularly is how the stomach perceives “normal,” and the occasional overindulgence makes you feel sick.

    The trick to stopping the cycle of unhealthy munchie binges is to train your stomach on proper portion sizes.

    By eating healthy meals in controlled amounts throughout the day, you’ll feel fuller faster. This transfers over to the weed feed urges. No matter what you eat, whether it’s junk or healthy, that line is crossed sooner.

    You’ll notice you hit that “gross, please stop eating” state long before you can finish half the pizza, while old you could eat the whole thing.

    3. Swap Your Weed Style

    Have you ever stopped to ask yourself what your weed goal was? Is it to get high, or because you like the results?

    Weed can relax you, boost your energy, make you feel confident enough to go out in public, and more. But these effects are due to the CBD and THC, not the blunt. In fact, smoking marijuana is one of the least healthy ways to get your fix.

    Depending on your goal, you might be able to switch to a strain of marijuana that doesn’t increase your appetite. If you’re actively looking for weight loss, not just munchie control, there are strains that promote that particular result, too.

    CBD and medical marijuana come in a variety of product options, from oils and tinctures to edibles and topicals. Try a few of the various methods and see which ones control your appetite and still give you the results you want.

    Conclusion

    Your wed habit doesn’t have to turn you into a cartoon character rummaging through your kitchen for goodies.

    With these three tips, you can eat healthy all the time, whether you’re stoned or not. Then, you’ll notice the cannabis effects even better!
