On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing how to completely eliminate food cravings in 14 days, with the junk food fast challenge.
If you’re like most people, you have food cravings.
But if you’re looking to get your cravings for specific foods under control, you’re in luck.
I’m about to share how I personally eliminated my food cravings, and you can too.
In fact, I still remember rummaging through the kitchen cabinets, thinking I was freaking starving.
It got to the point where I’d have a bowl of oats, then I’d add more oats to the bowl, and a little more.
You get the point.
I just couldn’t fill myself up on oats.
But when it comes to cravings, it doesn’t matter what type of food it is.
If you continuously crave a certain food, and you over eat it, it’s not helping you Live Lean.
In most cases, the types of foods that you crave are high in carbohydrates, in particular refined sugar.
Carbohydrates convert to sugar in the body, which can cause a quick spike in your blood sugar.
The rush of sugar is then removed from your blood stream, which then causes a blood sugar crash.
A crash in blood sugar then spikes your hunger, thus causing your cravings to go back up.
Based on this, here’s how I completely eliminated these cravings in 14 days.
I first made a pact to myself to stop eating the foods that I craved for 14 days.
When it comes to food cravings, here’s the most obvious thing you have to understand.
Completely eliminating unhealthy foods that you always crave, will eventually make you no longer crave those foods.
Such a simple concept but so few actually implement it.
The key is to break the conditioned mental connection between the hunger stimuli and eating certain foods.
It’s a repetitive cycle.
When you always eat snacks high in sugar, you’re actually training your brain to crave those foods every time you feel hungry.
This will be hardest for the initial 7 days because your body is programmed to want to eat the foods you crave.
In my case, it was ice cream and bread.
However, eventually my body adapted and significantly decreased my cravings for these foods.
Fast forward to today, and I no longer crave ice cream and life is much leaner.
The one food I still allow myself to crave is pizza.
However, I enjoy pizza as my weekly cheat meal.
Remember, everything in moderation.
