Fight Your Sweet Tooth With This Strategy
It's all in your head.
A recent study has found a method to fend off cravings for chocolate. Why people are studying ways to avoid eating chocolate is beyond us. But we suppose it can be good to have a little self-control. The study at University at Albany focused on thoughts. After all, thoughts are what control cravings. Usually, there’s a trigger: a sight or smell that gets us thinking. You can’t stop triggers. But you can control the thought process. The first step is to recognize that you’re having a craving. The next step is to banish the thought. That can be as literal as imagining it being crumpled into a ball and thrown into space. Sounds strange, but it might be what you need to stop overindulging.
