Crush Your Crazy Cravings™ for Sugary, Salty, Fatty Junk Foods

Cravings-Crushing Mondays Begins -- Hope, Help or Tools Every Week

You know how absolutely awful it feels to be in the stranglehold of an overpowering urge to eat—or, rather scarf— a certain bad-for-you nonfood?

Do you feel like a hamster trapped on a spinning wheel—and against your will, you’re driven this urgent, burning, panicky need to shovel that edible junk food into your mouth now?

Then, do you find that you just can’t stop thinking or fantasizing about your favorite donut, popcorn or [fill in the name of your preferred drug—okay, I mean, your trigger food]?

Even worse, do those junk foods keep calling out to you so you’ll eat or binge on them?

Do the enticing-looking, savory-smelling goodies seem to beckon you, pleading “E-a-t me, e-a-t me?”

Throw stress into the mix, and you have a disastrous recipe for bingeing on unhealthy foods loaded with sugar, fat or salt.

Then add your time of month or time of life, grief, challenges with your honey or mother, work woes or other compelling reasons, and danger is on the way.

In short, do you get “possessed”—or so it feels—by what I call Crazy Cravings™?

Self-Compassion Helps You Lose Weight

Dr. Kristin Neff Shares One Simple Way to Stick to Your Diet, Face Grief & More

If I told you there was one simple thing you could do so that you’d stick to your diet, quit carbs, ditch sugar, or clean up your diet what would you say?

It’s ridiculous to expect perfection, especially when it comes to dieting. That’s downright impossible.

As a delightfully imperfect human being, you may “slip” at some point on your healthy adventure. And that’s fine. It’s to be expected.

But when or if you fall off the wagon,” what you do matters.

If you use your binge as an excuse to beat up on yourself, you’ll pave the way for more failure and inevitable weight gain.

If, on the other hand, after you slip and eat sugar, carbs or other unhealthy snacks, you can ultimately succeed if you shower yourself with kindness, self-compassion, and understanding.

In fact, a growing body of research reveals that self-compassion is exactly what you need when you start or blow your diet or if you need help to get back on track, according to Kristin Neff, Ph.D., author of Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself.

For instance, compassion can help you:

Sugar Was Once Under Lock and Key!

Now That's a Sugar Shocker!

Since spring 1998, while quitting sugar on doctor’s orders, I’ve been astounded by a variety of shocking facts, which I call Sugar Shockers.

Here’s one surprising Sugar Shocker, which I discovered, thanks to author William Dufty, while writing my first book, Sugar Shock.

These days, sugar is cheap and easy to get. But back in the 16th and 17th centuries, the refined white powder was locked up!

Just imagine: Back in the 16th and 17th centuries, sugar was so darn expensive — the equivalent of about $30 a pound or a year’s salary for the average working man! — that it was considered a delicacy reserved for the very wealthy! And the nobility didn’t want their servants to steal the exorbitantly expensive sweet substance!
