Have you ever experienced this:
An urge to eat something unhealthy comes over you so strongly that you feel you have no choice but to give in?
When it's over, you feel awful that you've eaten all those calories and set yourself up for weight gain. So you're good for a couple of days until another craving comes over you.
You tell yourself you'll just eat one or two, but does it ever really work out that way?
You play Russian Roulette hoping that this time you will escape without consequences.
You pray this time will be different and you indulge...and the cycle repeats.
Most of us have certain trigger foods. Like kryptonite is to Superman, these foods seem to leave us powerless despite our great intentions. But what if we could finally stop the cycle? What if we could regain control and stop being pushed around by these foods? I'm here to tell you IT IS POSSIBLE!
You have the power. You can change the course of your life anytime you choose. It all starts with identifying your trigger foods. Once you can name them, your next task is to replace them with healthier, less consuming substitutions in order to break the cycle.
