I have had several people lately ask me how I lost the weight and am keeping it off. As I was thinking about this I realized that the one thing now that I can't eat so many things and only fresh or natural foods. I can't eat packaged (unless it's organic and no ingredients I don't understand). I realize that I don't have cravings anymore. I don't crave pizza, beer, cakes, cookies, crackers, chips, etc. I got to thinking about this and I truly visualize my body eating the nutritional foods and the foods satisfying my body so my body isn't looking for more or something that is not good for me. I know how hard it can be to get off of junk, processed foods but once they are out of your system you really don't crave them anymore. I think it's because your body recognizes that it has been properly fueled and has been given the proper vitamins and nutrients to energize it. And in the past when I would splurge on something not good for me I remember not being as satisfied and wanting more and more. I believe it's because your body is looking for you to feed it good foods that fuel your body.
Anyway, for anyone struggling I highly recommend cutting out all junk, and processed foods. Go cold turkey and get them out of your system. Like me you will start wanting more fruits and veggies...I eat them as snacks all the time. Love roasted veggies! I accidentally burned some carrots the other day when I was cooking them and they turned crispy and brown/black. They actually tasted wonderful and I am snacking on them.
Hope all my sparks buddies are doing great.
Have a wonderful Day.
