How To Get Rid Of Your Food Addiction

To quit, you’ll need a program that has clear, concise step-by-step instructions. But you’ll do much better with a program that will be gentle, supportive, honest, funny, creative and, above all, encouraging. When you quit, you’ll be surprised by how fast you can achieve a full return to health. I know: I’ve been there, and have gotten all the way back. Here’s how I did it.

When you are addicted to food, you will want more and more. And once that craving is satisfied, you will quickly begin craving something else. The first time I quit food, for about one month, I literally couldn’t stop thinking about food. My life would turn into a chaotic hellscape of eating. I would have a few bites before I would go back to my normal life. After about three days of quitting, I started to feel better. I had less anxiety and I was even able to get through lunch and dinner without eating or needing to go to the bathroom. When you are addicted to food, you will want more and more. And once that craving is satisfied, you will quickly begin craving something else. Because once you stop, you’ll have a clear understanding of why you need food. I have a vivid memory of my mother telling me that when she got high for the first time, when she stopped eating, she was so happy. And I was so happy, too, which is why I never want to lose control of my life like that again. Here’s how to get rid of that addiction. To quit, you’ll need a program that has clear, concise step-by-step instructions. But you’ll do much better with a program that will be gentle, supportive, honest, funny, creative and, above all, encouraging. When you quit, you’ll be surprised by how fast you can achieve a full return to health.

Eat Less And Move More, That’s All

When I decided to drop junk food, my body did a complete 180. I was no longer craving food, and the food I was craving for left me feeling hungry and a bit sick. As the weeks went by and I had some control of my eating and a few days of freedom, I experienced something wonderful. I actually felt less tired, even though I was still working on my fitness. And this led me to wonder, “What does it really take to feel and perform at my full and healthy best? How many calories are in something I crave so much that I need it to feel full and healthy? What does it actually cost me in terms of my health — how much energy do I burn? Will my digestion hurt if I have that meal at all? Can I really gain weight (or get fatter) if I eat that same food daily?” In fact, the answer is that, by eating less and moving more, I actually reduced my calories and lost five pounds in one month. Once I stopped eating and moving, my body got rid of all the junk in it that caused me to crave food in the first place-my metabolism slowed down and I no longer needed food to feel as full as I normally do, and I didn’t have to burn as many calories to function. It was incredibly empowering to finally feel so healthy. It wasn’t because I felt good physically as I did before I lost weight. It was only because I started to eat and move less. It took a lot of willpower, energy, self-discipline and lots of willpower to change our unhealthy habits, but it’s worth it in the end.

What Makes It Easy To Quit?

Here’s the problem: You’ll often need more than just a clear-cut program that promises success when you do it. You’ll need to find the right community to help you along the way. You’ll need to meet amazing people to motivate you to keep going. So be sure to get yourself in the right place and stick with it.

Here are just a few things that will make your quitting easy:

1) You’ll find the right food that you find yourself craving

Food is more than just food. In fact, it’s what keeps us all going and gives us pleasure. But if we are going to quit eating food, we’ve got to find the right food we crave most, even when we don’t feel as hungry as we did before we decided to give it up. And the hardest part is that the food we usually find ourselves craving is often the food that makes us feel bloated, sick, lethargic and bloated just after we take a bite.
