You Can Decide How to React…

Inspiring Shareable Quote: Share This With Your Friends & Loved Ones

There are always things that are beyond your control. One can always deal with them by taking everything in stride without having to be brought low. Reacting positively is a good thing to nurture in one’s character. Your attitude is the one thing you have control over. It can be the deciding factor for you to come out on top of every situation.

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” – Maya Angelou

I Need to Help As Many of You ASAP With My Free Crush Your Cravings Virtual Workshop

Sunday night, after spending an incredibly inspiring five days with the most remarkable speakers who are helping millions — such luminaries as Jeff Walker, Reid Tracy, Susan Garrett, Ryan Levesque, and Justin Livingston — I had a strange, startling nightmare.

A full-blown, utterly frightening nightmare.

Connie Bennett inspiring

In my nightmare, I’d contracted a disease from a foreign country, I believe.

The illness was incurable. In short, I had only a few days to live. My time would be up soon.

And that’s when I woke up. I was going to die within days!

Knowing that I would die soon, you know what upset me the most? That I would die without haven’t served you enough.

This nightmare has been haunting and hounding me for the past two days.

I’ve been so troubled, rattled and shaken to the core — and I still am — that I never helped more of you, who struggle with bingeing, obesity or other health hazards.

I’ve been upset that I haven’t shared enough of the cool, amazing, super-simple, ninja tools I’ve been researching or creating over the past four years to help you Crush Your Cravings™ for sugar, flour, fat and salt.

How can I die without getting out there and helping you ASAP?

But I just cannot live with the fact that many of you never got my help.

So I’m doing something to help you ASAP.  I’m re-opening my recent free Crush Your Cravings Virtual Workshop, which I hosted last week. This time, you’ll get to watch four instead of three videos. The third video will give you a sneak peek at what I’ve been researching and creating for years.

My Crazy-Cravings Anniversary

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.

salty

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.

For quite a while, I was mortified since a sugar and carb expert, for goodness sake!  In fact, it took me a full two years to get up the guts to publicly confess to my carb sinning on this blog.

These days, my Carb Relapse and TAG are long-ago history. My sense of humor, quirkiness and joie de vivre have returned.  Lately, the revelations have been pouring in.

Now, as I share in my new video, I realize that My Crazy Cravings Became My Greatest Teachers.  

So I’m back to serving you. Woo Hoo! I’m here to help you first learn about your cravings for junk foods full of sugar, flour, fat or salt.

Then I’m here to help you Crush Your Cravings.

Check out my free video series to discover my fascinating findings about cravings. (Please note that the video is up for only a few more days.)

Make sure to post your comments on the video page. Tell us: Have you ever been waylaid by intense cravings that threw you completely off course and goaded you into self-destructive bingeing?

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™?

But I’m here to bring you help every week. Welcome to Cravings-Crushing Mondays…

Have You Seen Our Cartoons?

Sugar Shock Cartons™ Helps You Smile or Giggle at Health Challenges

Have you seen the new Shock Cartoons™, which recently made their debut here, on this Sugar Shock Blog?

Why, you may wonder, am I inviting you to laugh at serious health and health and wellness subjects? That’s because humor is powerful.

Smiling or laughing about something serious can inspire you to make positive changes.

Indeed, back in 1998, before I kicked sugar, I saw the humor in my sugar-seeking behavior.

Likewise, in 2012, after my Carb Relapse, I found silliness in my carb-crazed bingeing.

So let me help you laugh or smile and then change for the better.

To see all Sugar Shock Cartoons, go here.

And, of course, feel free to share Sugar Shock Cartoons with your friends, loved ones, and social media colleagues so they’ll smile, chuckle, think and change, too.
