Here's a great article on MSNBC on controlling food cravings
. It's written by Adam Campbell of Men's Health, and I notice that most of the people he interviewed are advocates of reduced-carb diets, such as Mary Vernon, MD
. My favorite tip in the article is from Richard Feinman, PhD. He says when you are feeling like eating sweets is to picture yourself eating a steak and that, "If it doesn't sound good, your brain is playing tricks on you." He says that this is a cue to make a change in your environment. I tried it yesterday and it really worked!
