So tonight I need to get some zzzs so I can drive up early to Pasadena.
I invite you to think about your potentially glorious future, too.
You can create an awesome one in which you’ll find it easy to Crush Your Cravings for junk foods.
So please know that I’m off thinking about you often. In fact, soon on my Gab with the Gurus Show, I’ll be introducing you to some awesome products and people, who seek to help you to Get a Life that Rocks, as I like to put it.
While you’re waiting for one or both books to arrive, I invite you to listen to the fascinating interviews that I did with Drs. Friedman and Luskin, who both offer fascinating information about the power of forgiveness.
First, I invite you to listen do Dr. Luskin’s take on forgiveness.
In short, Just Delay before you put any sweets or carbs into your mouth–even if all you plan to do is nibble. (As you may know, your good intentions to have just a taste or two can lead to a binge.)
I hit on my Delay Away Your Cravings Tactic back in 1998 when I was reluctantly kicking sweets and refined carbs on doctor’s orders. To this day, I continue to be amazed at how easy, effortless, and darn effective it is.
Think about it: If you mindlessly nosh on fast-acting sweets or much-like-sugar carbs™ (my phrase for processed carbs), you’ll become headachy, wiped out, spaced out, moody, depressed or even angry at yourself, as you’ve revealed in surveys you’ve taken with me.
But what you do in that minute or two after your craving hits can make or break your diet.
In short, if you cave into cravings, it may be bye-bye, weight loss; hello, weight gain.
But I’m determined to help you get over that “Must-Have Sugar Now! hurdle.”
Let’s delve into this Delay Before You Cave into Cravings.
Just think about it: What’s one of the things many, if not most of us, do when we don’t want to do something? We procrastinate.
Usually people think of procrastinating as a bad thing, but you can make it quite powerful, positive and health enhancing.
So when you want to Crush Your Cravings, the starting point is to procrastinate.
Here’s the simple seven-part process to Delay Away Your Cravings. (more…)
Just Think: You Can Be Free of Your Cravings for Processed Sweets & Carbs
While we celebrate Independence Day weekend in the United States, I invite you to think about how glorious it will feel to Celebrate Sugar Independence.
Even if you now feel trapped, discouraged and overwhelmed by your sugar addiction, imagine that you’ve actually broken free of over-attachment to sugar. Here are 8 Reasons to Celebrate Your Sugar Independence.
1) When you’ve kicked sugar and processed carbs, you’ll enjoy a delicious feeling of freedom.
You know how your sugar and carb addiction makes you feel trapped, burdened and weighed down (emotionally and literally, of course)?
Well, the reverse can be true. When you no longer have a sugar or carb addiction dogging you, you’ll feel the most amazing feeling of freedom.
2 ) When you turn your back on sugar and achieve Sugar Independence, you’ll Enjoy a Sweeter Life Naturally.
Admittedly, the taste of sweet snacks and desserts may entice you, but only momentarily. That sugar “rush” will vanish pretty quickly, and you’ll feel wiped out, discouraged and disappointed in yourself.
But when you Let Your Sugar Addiction go, Life is Sweeter Naturally, as I like to say.
3) When you shed sugar, you’ll easily shed weight, too. Maybe you’ll even turn heads soon. (more…)
Ah, Thanksgiving…a day of togetherness and celebration, a day set aside for expressing gratitude for our many blessings. Now, though, this holiday — smack in the middle of The Season of Sugar Overload — has become synonymous with pigging out. For many, it’s a foodie free-for-all, which can make you gain weight, play havoc with your moods and plunge you into self-hating remorse. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Discover 3 Simple Shifts to Stop Holiday Overeating.
Grow Bigger Eyes
You probably know the expression, “My eyes were bigger than my stomach?” This holiday is the perfect time for you to look at this old adage in a new way. Instead of using the maxim to explain away the mound of food on your plate, take this as your goal: You want to Grow Bigger Eyes. By this, I mean you want to develop and then actually see a grander, better, bolder vision of yourself. In that split-second moment during which you decide how much to pile on your plate at your family-style Thanksgiving meal or buffet (or, while you’re getting up the courage to say, “No thank you” to your host), envision how you’d like to look and feel next week, next month, next year.
How I Became Determined to Crack the Cravings Code: See My Videos to Learn How to Crush Your Cravings
Four years ago, around this time, after a grueling year watching the difficult death of my Mom, Crazy Cravings for salty carbs and fatty cheeses hit me hard. Now, for the first time, I’m revealing via video (for a short time) how I fell into a massive, months-long Carb Relapse, gained 21 pounds and became determined to Crack the Cravings Code. I’m also here with help for you.
Learn in this video how — although I never went back to eating overt sugar (as in candies, cookies or cakes) and stayed away from sweets, as I had for the past 14 years — I had plenty of covert sugar from less obvious sources as movie popcorn, onion rings, corn nuggets, sweet potato chips and more movie popcorn.
For months, my Crazy Cravings kept hounding me while I sought to face and rise above TAG (my phrase for Trauma, Abuse and Anger and Grief) and much more.
“Connie, Eat Me, Eat Me, Eat Me,” those crappy carbs called out to me while I was walloped by painful emotions.
