Judith Beck PhD (The Beck Diet Solution) says that cravings usually peak within the first few weeks of a diet. And then once you limit or stop eating the foods you crave, your cravings for those foods will diminish significantly.
When I read this again tonight I just had to say that is exactly the experience I had. After years of giving into cravings, I finally did exactly what she recommended and got off of the foods I was craving.
I'm very happy to say I have very, very few cravings now. Oh, I get hungry, but I find that any food will take away hunger. I'm content to see what is on my food plan or what nutrients I'm still needing for the day. It really is freedom.
