Sources for my Cravings-Crushing, Quick-Start Guide
The two Cravings-Craving Tools I share in this free Quick-Start Guide are based on research from top psychologists, neuroscientists, sociologists, or other researchers. The tips here (and in my upcoming book, Crush Your Cravings) fall into one of two categories.
- Tools that Were Scientifically Tested: All techniques I share here have been studied and tested by scientists around the world during the past decade. Then they were compiled by either one of my book researchers or me. Whenever I share a tool, I clarify how and why each one works and how long it takes to do it. This makes it easy for you to try out the technique to see if it works for you. Next, you’ll want to come back to this Quick-Start Guide to complete a quick, easy Adventurcise (Adventurous Exercise), where you write down if the tool worked for you and if you plan to use this fast, simple, on-the-go technique whenever Crazy Cravings strike.
- Techniques I Created, Tested and Validated: Over the past 17 years—since quitting sugar and fast carbs on doctor’s orders in 1998—I’ve invented or discovered many fast, convenient, powerful, portable Cravings-Crushing tools. In addition, while rebounding from my Crazy Cravings and subsequent Carb Relapse from late 2012 to mid-2013, I found more processes for this ebook and my upcoming book, Crush Your Cravings. Even if I created the tool myself, I always found substantive scientific proof to support the validity of my tool.
