Take Control Of Your Cravings

CRAVINGS can control you.

I know this because I have lived decades of my life controlled by my cravings.

I would have the best intentions to eat healthy (and truly believe that I was going to stay on track) but then I would get so overwhelmed by a craving, all my willpower would go flying out the window.

It was not until the I studied the science of why we crave foods that I was finally able to take back control of my own body and brain.

Now, I can tell you honestly that cravings don’t control my life anymore.

When I teach this to my natural weight loss clients, they also have the same freedom from their cravings.

Ready to learn this?…

 

The Science Behind Cravings 

Let me ask you something…“When you have what you’re craving, does it actually go away?”

Do you feel satisfied when you have that ice cream, pizza or french fries?

Think about it.

Do you still crave something else even after eating it?

It turns out that CRAVINGS are your mind’s confusion. 

Most women that I work with are malnourished, meaning you are not getting the nutrition that your body and brain need.

When you are malnourished, your brain will send out a signal that you need to START EATING NOW because you are missing some vitamin, mineral or enzyme.

This is where your mind gets warped.

The presence of visual marketing, commercials and people selling sugar have all short circuited our interpretation of what our body is telling us.

In other words, your brain starts to believe the marketing message that was sent to your unconscious mind in a subliminal way.

Instead of having something with the vitamins and minerals that your body is actually deprived of, we lock onto the closest pizza, potato chips or cake because these are what we see in ads, magazines, on TV, and on the internet.

It’s a combination of this instinctual drive to satisfy your nutritional needs that gets warped thru media ad marketing.

When you eat these processed, chemical-filled foods, your brain and body go into a trance-like state.

There are a few moments where you are ‘numbed out’ and you’re not thinking or feeling anything (this is why these chemical-filled processed foods are SO addictive!).

These ‘fake foods’ are full of processed chemicals, sugar and salt that take over your biochemistry.

Even when you eat so much of it, your body will still tell you that it is craving for much more!

 

Hit By Your Cravings?… What Can You Do?…

This one simple tip completely changed my life and my clients’ lives too.

I practice this on myself and it sure does WORK!

If I crave something, I will eat a healthy mini-Meal™ which is my patented combination of lean protein, vegetables, healthy fats and slow burning carbohydrates.

take-control-of-your-cravings-2Once I do this, the cravings suddenly go away because my body feels alive with all the energy from the vitamins and minerals that I received from the mini-Meal™.

I feel satisfied!

That’s when I realize that I wasn’t actually craving the chocolate or the doughnut.

All my body needed was a good dose of nutritious food.

Try this and see how it works.

Now, if you are still craving it after eating the mini-Meal™, look deeper into yourself and see whether you have an emotional attachment to that particular food.

Perhaps you may be using that food to escape or relive something from a past memory.

When your cravings hit you, accept that this can happen to anyone.

Even the smartest and strongest women lose it and are taken off the healthy path when the cravings start to control them.

Shame and judgement will only make it bigger.

Think of the craving as a vehicle for you to start exploring and understanding what’s REALLY going on inside of your body, heart and mind.

You’ll discover that the mystery of why cravings happen can be decoded.

You can use your craving to help you lose weight and gain the health that you truly deserve.

Take control of your cravings and you will see yourself taking charge of your body in no time.

Stop Feeling Guilt and Shame

All of us, at some point in our lives, have felt awful and guilty right after giving in to our cravings.

For years, I was going through this cycle of giving in and feeling the shame and disgust.

After I saw how my face and body continuously bloated, I realized that this was not the way to live.

I listened intently to what my body was saying.

I realized that our bodies are constantly communicating with us.

It is telling you when it is sending out craving signals.

It is saying, “Hey, I am missing a vitamin. I am missing a nutrient.”

I have a great tip that worked for me tremendously and you can do this too.

Write down your cravings in a journal.

When you feel the craving come on, write down what you’re craving.

Then ask yourself the most powerful question: “Why am I craving what I’m craving?”

Your answer will reveal a ton.

You will find out whether you really want the potato chips or is it something deeper.

Perhaps you just want something crunchy in your mouth but not necessarily the chips.

Being aware of the root of your cravings makes you empowered to manage your it.

Just remember that if you give in, forgive yourself and move on.

This will get you back on track faster to continue on with your healthy and natural weight loss journey.

Try this and let me know how it works for you.

Sending You a Vibration of Awareness and Empowerment,

Love and Light,

Andréa
