The New Year is traditionally a time for resolutions but sticking to them can be overwhelming.
To turn your this year’s resolution into a healthy lifestyle, we’re here to help you with some information about junk food cravings that you can use to making healthier and smarter choices.
Everyone knows, consciously, that eating junk food is bad for them.
But even the ones who “know better” have trouble keeping themselves from munching on chips, crackers, pretzels, sodas, appetizers etc.
Salt and sugar are often blamed for causing junk food cravings, but how can you avoid them if they’re found in everything?
How can you resist the temptation to snack when you’re really not hungry?
Processed foods contain additives and other flavors, designed to make to make as addictive as possible.
This not only causes you to feel more hungry, but they never actually satiate your hunger.
That’s why you always feel like munching on something, even after having a big meal full of burgers, fries, sodas, steaks, etc.
It’s a vicious cycle of hunger, eating, over-eating, then hunger again.
The Real Truth About Junk Food
Manufacturers of junk food have taken the science of artificially producing enhanced flavors to a science.
That almost orgasmic bliss that you feel after eating a whole bag of Doritos is produced by the use of artificial ingredients, that confused your body’s metabolism.
For example, artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet or Equal, Sorbitol, Stevia, Splenda and Truvia are just a few of the sweeteners that have grown in popularity in the recent years.
For those looking to battle junk food cravings, this may have sounded like a miracle solution.
However, when we look closely at the artificial sweeteners, and understand how they truly work, it might not really be a winning situation.
Sugar substitutes available in the market also tend to be sweeter than regular sugar.
This then causes people’s tastebuds to accept this higher, more intense sweetened taste as the new “normal”.
For example, Aspartame is about 200 times sweeter than sugar, while Sucralose can be as much as 600 times sweeter.
Consuming these artificial sweeteners over time cause people to find other naturally sweet foods, like fruit, to no longer be palatable.
This often results in a greater consumption of other artificially sweetened food, which has less nutritional value.
Lucky for us, there are non-invasive solutions to eliminating unhealthy junk food cravings.
One of the most effective solutions anyone can use is implementing the FasterEFT Tapping technique, along with natural and healthy diet modifications that effectively help reset your body’s metabolism.
Robert shows us how to do it in the video below:
What Makes Processed Foods so Addictive?
Before getting into how and why FasterEFT is so effective in battling addiction, let’s take a look at how junk food cravings are caused.
You may have heard that refined sugar is more addictive than cocaine**.
While there is a vicious debate going on amongst medical professionals about this, it is true that sugar isn’t the only addictive ingredient found in our foods.
Food manufacturers combine various flavors and chemicals to produce addictive ingredients.
This is true not only for chips, sodas and baked products, but these ingredients are found in ALL processed foods – from ketchup to pasta sauce!
Addressing the Emotional Component of Your Junk Food Cravings
Whether your weakness is chocolate, potato chips, pizza or sodas, you can stop junk food cravings quickly and painlessly using the FasterEFT technique.
Just like all other problems, your food cravings are caused by records held in your subconscious.
These records cause the subconscious to trigger your body to respond with a craving because it believes that food is essential to your getting what you need.
The great news is: you no longer need to try to use your will power to resist the food you love.
You’re going to change the original record that causes you to crave that junk food in the first place.
The result will be a healthy relationship with food.
You may or may not still choose to eat it – but your choice will be conscious and in alignment with what you really want.
Instead of being a slave to your craving, you will be able to choose to not eat that food if you have decided it’s not good for you; or to have just a small portion of it if you choose to eat it.
The important point is that you will be in full control of what you eat and how much of it you eat rather than fighting the junk food cravings in your body.
How to use FasterEFT to Stop Junk Food Cravings
Start by noticing how you know you crave that junk food – it could be chocolate, soda, chips, whatever!
Where do you feel it in your body?
Notice what the sensation feels like, and how strong it is.
Then, use the FasterEFT tapping technique to address that feeling.
When you think about the food, what is it about it that you love so much?
What does it taste like, and what do you love about the taste?
Tap on that taste until it changes in your mind when you think about the food – tap until you can no longer taste it in your mind.
Notice the smell of that food in your mind when you think about it.
How does it smell?
What do you remember about that smell?
Now, tap on that smell until it changes to where you can no longer smell it.
Notice whatever else you notice about the food – is there a texture you like, for example.
Again, tap on that until you no longer feel it in your mind when you imagine eating that food.
The Missing Connection that Causes Junk Food Cravings
As you go through the process, notice if any memories come up.
What is your earliest memory of eating that junk food?
If you have a memory, tap on that as well.
Junk food cravings for specific foods are often linked to early memories of love connected with that food.
For example, you may have been given cake each time you visited your grandmother; and perhaps you felt loved while you were with her.
Your subconscious may have then connected the cake with love.
This will mean that your subconscious is triggering your body to crave cake because there is a belief that they bring love.
Naturally, your conscious mind doesn’t believe this; and you will probably be completely unaware of the connection consciously.
So, while you think you are addicted to cake, the truth is, it is simply a connection in the subconscious between cake and love.
Change that connection, and the cravings for cake disappear.
When you tap on a memory like this, feel the love from your grandmother (or whoever it is you felt it from at the time), and send that love back to her.
Feel that love between you and her.
Notice it has nothing to do with the cake – the cake can’t love you back.
The love comes directly from the person.
Fill them with the same love.
Then address what you love about the cake and tap out all aspects of that – the taste, the texture, the smell etc.
Being able to successfully stop junk food cravings – with lasting effect – means addressing what is causing the cravings, not the cravings themselves.
