My Demise-Cravings

Monday, April 15, 2013

My mind obsesses on sweets to the point where I physically crave it. It consumes me. It is crazy how strong the desire, the ability for my mind to hiper focus on the thought of caving into the cravings once it starts. I wish my mind could hiper focus on something more productive and healthy!

This obsession, hiper-focus, desire, craving whatever you want to call it is eating me. I am trying to control it tonight. I just want to make it through this evening. That is my only goal.

I found the following on Woman's Health in an article on controlling cravings:

Spot hunger impostors
Have a craving for sweets even though you ate just an hour ago? Imagine sitting down to a large, sizzling steak instead. "If you're truly hungry, the steak will sound good, and you should eat," says Richard Feinman, Ph.D., a professor of biochemistry at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. "If it doesn't sound good, your brain is playing tricks on you."

His advice: Change your environment, which can be as easy as stretching at your desk or turning your attention to a different task.
