Why You Should Become a Cravings Ninja™, Too

How I Became The Cravings Ninja™ -- Cravings-Crushing Monday: Get Ready for Peaceful Battle Success Over Sugar & Processed Carbs

Whenever I meet people (such as at recent Bulletproof and Tony Robbins conferences), people are excited and intrigued when they discover that people refer to me as The Cravings Ninja™.

Almost always, they want to know more.

It’s time to explain the phrase I was given about three  years ago.

To begin, my goal now as  Your Cravings Ninja™, is to lead you to Sweet Victory  over those tempting sugary, fatty junk foods.

As The Cravings Ninja, I’m here to guide you to easily, effortlessly, stomp out your wild, irrational, overpowering urges for nutrient-deprived snacks and meals.

Why do people call  me The Cravings Ninja™?

By its definition, a ninja is someone, who excels in a particular skill of activity.

Those mythical 12th century warriors infiltrated and went to battle against particular enemies.

Although ninjas often had to be violent,  I’m here to lead you into peaceful battle against sugary, fatty, salty non-foods.

Think about it. You can try umpteen diets, but you’ll never shed pounds and then keep them off for good unless you Crush Your Cravings for Good™.

So here’s how I became The Cravings Ninja.

Although I’ve been sugar-free eating minimal carbs (always quality carbs) since 1998, it took my having  Crazy Cravings™ and a Carb Relapse in late 2012 after my Mom passed away for me to really “get” this concept more deeply and fully than ever before.

As I shared in 2013, the catalyst for my Crazy Cravings and subsequent Carb Relapse was after I’d endured the worst year of my life helplessly watching my Mom get ravaged by cancer, which made her often become quite mean, irrational and abusive while she was losing the battle to this deadly disease.

Presto! With Mom gone, Crazy Cravings hit hard and often while I was walloped by grief, despair and a really bad case of PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder).

While learning to Crush My Cravings, I realized that I needed to become smart, secretive and subtle like a ninja so I could  help you succeed, too.

So for the last five years, I’ve been researching researching, creating and testing many fast, easy, science-based healing tools and fast ways to crush your wild urges for junk foods.

Then one day, someone learning about how I help you Crush Your Cravings used the phrase ninja to describe what I do. The phrase stuck. I became The Cravings Ninja™ for you.

For October, Dare to Dream of a Sweeter Life Without Sweets

Think Healthy this Month Instead of Falling Prey to the Sugar Pushers

October is here, and usually this is the month millions, can trigger a Season of Sugar Overload™.

Indeed, Halloween is what I call the “gateway” holiday. (Yes, my use of a drug term is intentional.)

But you don’t have to be helpless prey to sugary treats that abound for the rest of the year.  Read on to find out how to Stand Strong™.

This October, I invite you to begin to dream big.

Dream of a life where you’re not a slave to sweets.

Dream of a life where you choose to claim health instead.

Dream of a life where joy, fun and excitement abound.

Make this October the month you claim your Sweet, Sugar-Free Power™ .

So I urge you: Take back your October now. Rather than being the month that sends you down a slippery path, let this October be the month when you take back your power.

To encourage you on your Sugar-Free October path, I invite you to get inspired by this quote from James Allen:

“The dreamers are the saviors of the world.”

Now, let’s give it a sugar-free twist.

Make this October the month you claim your Sweet, Sugar-Free Power™ .

Admittedly, you may think, “How can I ignore sugar this Halloween?” I’ve got one simple solution.

I’m Doing a Crush Your Cravings™ Documentary!

Find Out How to Be in My Film if You Have Huge Cravings for Sugar, Carbs & Junk Foods

For nearly five years, I’ve been fascinated by the subject of cravings, because after 14-plus years of almost no cravings, Crazy Cravings viciously attacked me after my mother died, following what I now call My Bittersweet Last Year with Mom.

While finding and creating Cravings-Crushing tactics to shed the 21 pounds I gained while healing from PTSD, anxiety, grief, etc., I became furious, embarrassed, exasperated, upset, endlessly (it seemed) frustrated and then utterly fascinated by the subject of cravings.

Initially, it took me two years to get the courage to publicly confess to My Crazy Carb Cravings and my weight gain.

But since my relapse five years ago, I’ve been intrigued by cravings.

Since I’m a journalist by training, the questions have been pouring in:

Why did I get such utterly ferocious cravings (what I call Crazy Cravings) almost immediately after Mom passed away and after I’d stood by helplessly watching her fade away and get more and more angry and irrational?

In short, why did Crazy Cravings strike me with such intensity after My Bittersweet Last Year with Mom?

Sure enough, I discovered, people often gain weight after someone close to them dies. They do something that I call Heartbreak Bingeing™.

That led me to to speculate:  Does the  death of a loved one often lead to pigging out on carbs to stuff grief? (Fellow writer Carolyn Thomas had a similiar experience. )

What about divorce? Does that lead to weight gain or loss? (Turns out, both things can happen.)

Then I conducted five surveys of people on my mailing list to find out more about your experiences. Sure enough, certain patterns emerged.
