Most of people fall victim to a little temptation during everyday life- usually in the form of chocolate, biscuits and sugar, cheese, crisps, or some other food or drink that they love but know it will be paid for on the scale in the morning. Dr. Mehmet Oz explained that people crave food for the same reason they crave sex. While eating these types of food as well as having sex, it is released dopamine- known as feel-good brain chemical, which creates a rush of euphoria that our brains seek over. It is obvious that none of the living creature will survive as a species without sex and eating. So rather than a losing battle- tough out your cravings through sheer willpower, you have to be a bit cunning in your approach. That is why below we give you some useful and smart ways about how to win a victory over craving.
1. Find out the foods that you are powerless around– it is not weak, it is smart! Everyone’s craving foods are different, so try to figure out what sends you on a food bender, then when you identify this food you should not have them near you and you will avoid craving.
2. Do not bring junk food in the house– you are less likely to eat chips or cookies or candy if they are not available in your store-room or fridge. This is how can you do yourself a huge favor by not even bringing them home from the market. If they are out of sight they probably will be out of your mind. It is the best way, because you don’t even think about them.
