Tips for Controlling Cravings

By October 29, 2008

Follow me on:

womanHere'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!
