Still craving the wrong foods? Here’s how to stop…

Let’s face it, we live in a world where food temptations are everywhere…which lead to cravings, which lead to you eating things that you shouldn’t. Again. And again. And again. Until you’re so fed up with your body that you don’t even know where to begin to get yourself back on track.

Stores display the most tantalizing junk food items right where you could easily reach them. TV commercials for greasy, fattening foods portray them so scrumptiously that you literally salivate. Sugary snack items have full-page, glossy pictures in your favorite magazines. And as if all of these weren’t enough, the people in your daily life are another, constant source of food temptation.

To make matters worse, you’ve been conditioned since childhood to have a positive association with the act of indulging in your cravings. You use food as a reward. You use food as a source of emotional comfort. You use food as a way to relieve stress. And quickly these associations and uses of food become habit. A habit not easily broken.

New Technique to End Food Cravings

Food cravings don’t need to have the upper hand on you anymore. Here’s how you can fight back using your most powerful asset: your brain.

Remember that your mind is an amazing thing. Once your mind is made up about something it’s nearly impossible to change it.

Try This Powerful Mind Exercise: Imagine that you are peacefully floating down a river on a raft. The sun is shining, birds are chirping, and you are having a fun, relaxing time.

You feel wonderful about the river because it’s making you feel happy.

Now change perspectives for a moment. You’re now in a plane flying over the river and the raft. Instantly our eye is drawn to an enormous rocky waterfall. Then you look back to the person floating on the raft, having a wonderful time, headed straight for the treacherous falls.

With this new perspective of the river, do you think that you’d agree to get on a raft and take your chances floating toward the falls? Laughable, right? You’ve seen the hidden danger of the river. You know it leads to pain and suffering.

Now your negative association (watery death) with the river has replaced your initial positive association (relaxing fun).

This is the key to overcoming food temptations and putting an end to food cravings: building negative associations in place of existing positive ones. I’ll break this process down for you in two steps:

Step One: Create a STRONG Negative Association with Unhealthy FoodYou may not have realized it, but up until this point you’ve placed unhealthy, fattening foods on a pedestal in your mind. As long as the wrong foods are on that pedestal you’ll continue to give into your cravings and will continue to gain fat.

  • Take the wrong food off that pedestal by listing off everything negative about them…
  • These foods make you unhealthy.
  • These foods cause weight gain.
  • These foods drain your energy.
  • These foods kill your confidence.
  • These foods lessen your quality of life.
  • These foods damage your love life.

Every time that you feel tempted to eat an unhealthy food, focus on your list of negatives. Kick the junk off the pedestal and put something healthy in its place.

Step Two: Create a STRONG Positive Association with wholesome foods

Now that your mental food pedestal has been cleared, put truly wholesome food items on it. Juicy fresh fruit, crispy vegetables and savory lean meats are the place to start.

List off the things that you love about healthy food…

  • These foods make you healthy.
  • These foods promote fat loss.
  • These foods boost your energy.
  • These foods build your confidence.
  • These foods improve your quality of life.
  • These foods enhance your love life.

I encourage you to immerse yourself into the world of healthy, wholesome foods. Browse the aisles of your local natural foods store. Stroll through a farmer’s market. Pack healthy snacks to bring to work. Clear your kitchen of junk.

Use the technique above consistently and you will soon find that healthy, wholesome foods are your favorite.

And craving the wrong foods will be a thing of your past.

HEALTHY French Fries

Yes, this is happening! Real healthy fries that taste AMAZING and are made with BAKED PARSNIPS!

Most people love fries, however, regular fries really are so bad for our fitness. All that unhealthy fat and all of those calories are hard to justify eating very often. And having a belly full of greasy fries never feels too awesome.


Nothing comes as close to tasting like real, authentic fries than these baked parsnip fries. If you are a fry lover, please try this recipe and let me know what you think!

What you need
Serves 6

2 large parsnips
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
sea salt and black pepper to taste
½ teaspoon sweet paprika
natural ketchup

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line an 18 × 26-inch rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Peel the parsnips and trim the ends. Cut each parsnip in half horizontally, then make 2 cuts in each direction to create 9 sticks out of each half. In a large bowl, toss the parsnip sticks with the rosemary, garlic, olive oil, sea salt, pepper, and sweet paprika.

3. Spread the fries over the prepared baking sheet. Roast for 10 minutes, flip, and then roast for another 10–15 minutes, until browned and crispy. Serve with the ketchup.
