So how do we get those cravings under control? I believe it comes down to 3 things Knowledge, Power, and Self Respect.
When you experience a craving and you are in the middle of the overwhelming need to satisfy that craving it feels impossible to be rational about the craving. That's where KNOWLEDGE comes into play. Once you understand why you are experiencing cravings then you have the POWER to control that craving (in my experience it takes about 2 days to stop craving) until the craving is gone. Then you have the SELF RESPECT to care for your body and never subject it to that craving again. This creates a positive cycle that makes you feel wonderful!
Here is a wonderful video to help you get the knowledge you need to kick that sugar craving. Yes, it is 1 1/2 hours long and life is short but I think it is well worth your time to watch this video - or play it while you do some mindless task.
Thanks to my sister, Emily, for this link!
