Controlling Emotional Eating and Curbing Cravings
Saturday, June 23, 2012
Emotional eating, as a matter of fact, is what got me overweight. Therefore, my biggest challenge during my weight loss journey is to control it. The best way, is to get out all the negative emotions in any other direction, like writing for example in a journal, or talking with someone who can understand, and last but not least doing something spiritual like praying. Another challenge I'm sure a lot of you find difficult to handle is curbing cravings, specially when these cravings are sitting right in front of you inside the fridge. It's like you just can't stop thinking about that cheese cake or even worse, chocolate mousse cake. Best strategy to follow with these temptations is first, stop and think about how much calories, sugar and fat these temptations got , it will ruin your diet, think about that wedding you want to attend and look fabulous there. Second, if that fails, try to take a small piece of your "temptation" just to satisfy yourself, take care of your portions.
This is what I do, thanks again for reading this much! :)
