Today, imagine that your biggest trigger food is sitting on the kitchen counter. Watch yourself pick it up and toss it in the trash without even considering eating it. How does it feel to be in total control over your trigger food? What small steps can you take today to put you more in control of your food cravings?
My biggest trigger food would be chocolate. I have been know to eat the baking chocolate chips when the craving becomes overwhelming.
I do not like to think that something controls me to a point where it becomes an addiction. And I think eating the baking chocolate chips my qualify as just that. It would feel wonderful to know that I could say "No"!
When the craving comes along, I need to stop and ask myself the these questions.
1. Am I really hungry?
2. Is something bothering me?
3. What can I do with the feeling other than eating?
