I'm making my boys pumpkin muffins tonight. With flour and sugar. They were raised in an orphanage where a piece of bread soaked in water and mashed was breakfast. So things like veggies etc are so foreign to them. So these food are temporary till they adjust.............
but I digress :o)
I could have eaten 2 by now,
BUT
I remembered- these cravings WILL go away!!
Woo-Hoo!

    20 minutes is the usual amount of time for an urge to eat/craving to pass. If you can hold out that long, your willpower wins!

LC Tip of the Day #156 (5 STAR!)

Sunday, December 07, 2014

The rewards of accomplishing your goals will never grow strong enough unless fed daily.

There is a sense of reward generated every time you honor your commitment to yourself. Over time, the desire for the reward will become stronger and more influential in daily decisions. This desire is what is oft termed as MOTIVATION. Basically you are creating a new reward system that, over time, will be able to compete with the old one of eating. It takes time to find what empowers you but it is worth the effort to find it.

Because the scale doesn't show a difference doesn't mean that your mind and body aren't making a difference!

Research shows SUGAR is ADDICTing!

Tuesday, December 02, 2014

"'Everyone who owns pet rats knows if you give them a cookie they will like that, but no one experimentally had given them all they want,' Sclafani told me when I met him at his lab in Brooklyn, where he continues to use rodents in studying the psychology and brain mechanisms that underlie the desire for high-fat and high-sugar foods. When he did just that, when he gave his rats all they wanted, he saw their appetite for sugar in a new light. They loved it, and this craving completely overrode the biological brakes that should have been saying: Stop.

"The details of Sclafani's experiment went into a 1976 paper that is revered by researchers as one of the first experimental proofs of food cravings. Since its publication, a whole body of research has been undertaken to link sugar to compulsive overeating. In Florida, researchers have conditioned rats to expect an electrical shock when they eat cheesecake, and still they lunge for it. Scientists at Princeton found that rats taken off a sugary diet will exhibit signs of withdrawal, such as chattering teeth."
