The munchies are one of the most well-known effects of smoking marijuana. We all know that having a bad case of the munchies can lead to unhealthy eating habits. But what you may not know is there are ways to fight the good fight against your cravings! In this article we show you a few ways to stop the munchies when you’re high!

Don’t Smoke on an Empty Stomach

The trick to preventing the munchies is to eat something before you smoke. The key here is that it should be a snack that’s high in calories and protein.

This will help you stabilize your blood sugar, which can help prevent hypoglycemia or low blood sugar levels, which can make you feel hungry or tired and make it harder for you to stop eating (and it may cause paranoia).

Snacks like nuts, fruit, peanut butter sandwiches and granola bars are all good choices. Any food with a lot of fat would also work well since fats take longer to digest than carbohydrates.

Try not to choose foods that are high in sugar because these will cause a big spike in insulin production, which will lead more cravings later on down the road when things start going downhill again due to withdrawal symptoms from pot smoking activities such as eating too much junk food like chips or cookies.”

Low Fat Snacks to Stop the Munchies

Eat a low-fat snack before you smoke, like unsalted cashews, or a high-fiber snack like oatmeal, which is great for lowering blood sugar spikes.

You can also combat the munchies by eating a low-fat snack before smoking, like unsalted cashews or a high-fiber snack like oatmeal. This is because these foods are high in fiber and protein, which helps slow down sugar absorption into your system. (And yes, you should probably avoid eating something with a lot of sugar or carbohydrates.)

Avoid highly Processed Carbs and Sugars when High.

Avoiding the munchies can be difficult. The key is to avoid highly processed carbs and sugars when you’re high. The best way to do this is to eat a balanced diet, with plenty of protein and fiber, but no more than you need. Don’t overeat while high!

Avoid eating junk food when you’re stoned or drunk, too! It’s easy to overdo it on sugary foods like candy bars or potato chips—and even ice cream sandwiches (see photo above).

This can cause stomach aches and indigestion that make your high worse. If you overindulge in junk food while stoned or drunk, there’s also a chance you’ll feel hungrier later on because these foods are so calorically dense!

Have some fruit. Fruits are nature’s candy. 

If you’re looking for something sweet, it’s best to go with fruit. Fruits are nature’s candy and can help kill your munchies while also being a good source of vitamins and minerals. Berries are known to be an excellent antioxidant food that can help fight cravings as well. These can help you stop the munchies!

Fruits are full of fiber, which can help you feel full and satisfied after eating them (no more stuffing yourself on empty calories). Plus, fruits taste amazing! Who doesn’t love the smell of fresh oranges or apples? They will make your mouth water just thinking about them!

And last but not least… they’re good for your teeth!

Drink Tea

Tea is a great alternative to water, and it can satisfy your cravings for junk food. If you’re trying to stay sober while high, though, make sure you don’t add milk or cream. The added fat in these ingredients will trigger your body’s hunger response even more quickly than usual—which is exactly what you want to avoid!

If you’re feeling hungry enough that tea isn’t enough to fill up your stomach and make you feel better without giving into the munchies, try eating some fruit instead.

Fruits tend to be filling and contain few calories so they’re perfect if you want something healthy but also satisfying. Apples are especially good because they help curb cravings for sweets and other junk food by providing a burst of energy with each bite (and plenty of fiber).
