Well, that question is wrong isn’t it? How would you respond to a heroin addict who asked you how they might control their craving for heroin? Or a cocaine addict how they might control their craving for coke? There are only two choices – they either have to take the drug all day, every day, for the rest of their life – or break free of their addiction.
The same goes for “how to stop hunger cravings”, “how to stop eating junk food” or “how to get rid of sugar cravings”. The way you stop refined sugar or processed & starchy carbohydrates from causing cravings – is firstly understand why you don’t need them in your body and then to eliminate them from your daily diet. That’s easier said than done if you don’t have a good guide – but Allen Carr’s Easyway programmes for emotional eating, sugar & carb addiction make it not only easy, but enjoyable to get free.
Top Ten List – most commonly eaten foods that cause cravings
All the foods that cause cravings have several things in common:
- They contain virtually zero nutritional value (that’s why you can eat endless amounts but still not feel “full up”…the body, quite rightly, doesn’t recognize them as food
- They all have a dramatic effect on your blood sugar levels (they cause upward sugar spikes and downward sugar crashes – your body doesn’t know whether it is coming or going
- They make you moody and angry if you want them but can’t have them
People often try to use willpower “to avoid cravings” but dieting with willpower doesn’t really help. “How to stop hunger cravings?”, “How to not crave food?”, “How to stop eating junk food?” or “How to get rid of sugar cravings?” Well all diets do is make certain foods seem more precious rather than less precious and tend to make cravings even worse. The trick is to change the way you think about the foods that make you crave and doing that is easy when you know how.
If you understand what foods cause cravings, what foods make you feel hungrier when you eat them rather than satisfied, and how foods that make you crave work to manipulate your blood sugar levels, moods, and emotions, then you are ready to be set free. All you need to do is follow Allen Carr’s Easyway’s guide.
