Curb Your Cravings
As you develop the habit of making healthier choices, there are times when healthy choices may not be made. Many times, especially in the early stages of weight loss, cravings occur. These moments of unhealthy eating or cravings for junk foods don’t mean you have fallen off the wagon and all efforts were in vain. These cravings actually have positive intentions to help you determine the emotional needs you need met in your life to for you to feel truly satisfied. Cravings can occur for many different emotional reasons. Some of these emotional triggers are: loneliness (a need for companionship), insecurity (a need to be happy), anger (a need to be at peace within yourself or to feel love), reward (a need for appreciation), comfort (a need to feel good); or cravings can simply occur as the great equalizer because your body is losing mass and trying to maintain its status quo. Instead of allowing cravings to cause an imbalance or a sense of failure, learning to conquer cravings provides an instant source of confidence that will help you succeed.
This Curb Your Cravings audio guides you as you find practical and quick ways to make better associations to meet your emotional and physical needs. Please remember your body and mind don’t like to give an activity or reaction up without completely replacing that activity or reaction with something else capable of meeting the very same need(s) within you. If you get cravings when you’re lonely, simply realizing you are truly craving companionship is the first step. The next step is realizing that finding another activity where you are with people or communicating with people (i.e. internet, phone, taking a walk with a neighbor) will easily replace that craving for food. When you consistently change a feeling-to-food association to a new feeling-to-action association, over time the new actions gain strength over your old eating patterns and will become your preferred habitual response to those needs within you. An example of this could be: instead of feeling angry and lonely and starting to prepare food or beginning to make arrangements to go out to eat with friends, you could replace that association by taking a brisk walk and making a phone call when you need a friend. There an infinite number of new associations you can choose when feeling any emotion, but whatever you choose, these new associations will lead you to a healthier lifestyle and the lean body and peace of mind you deserve. If you are facing cravings due to true hunger as you lose weight, this Mp3 will also help you make the distinction between food that looks good to you and food that looks good for you, such as the choice of eating an apple instead of a huge desert or vegetables instead of chips. This Mp3 is here to help you easily make healthier associations to curb your cravings..
