If you consider yourself an emotional eater or sugar addict or chocoholic no doubt you frequently wonder “how to control food cravings”?
Is it a case of controlling them or a case of “how to fight food cravings” or, “how to avoid cravings” altogether?
The really interesting thing about Allen Carr’s Easyway is that it not only helps you decide what goes in your mouth – but also what goes on in your head.
What causes food cravings?
Food cravings are caused by a variety of factors including habit or routine, blood sugar levels, and how you feel about food. Or to be precise, how you feel about certain foods. Food cravings feel similar to hunger – but far more powerful. Very few of us have ever had the misfortune to feel real, genuine hunger caused by starvation – the hunger we live with tends to be extremely mild and no more alarming that a feeling that triggers the thought, “I’m a bit peckish”.
Food cravings are far more unpleasant and are caused by foods which manipulate our blood sugar levels – normally refined sugar or processed and starchy carbohydrates. They create a yearning for more – a yearning that can feel overwhelming if you don’t know how to respond to it.
How to control food cravings
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 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 programs for emotional eating, sugar & carb addiction make it not only easy, but enjoyable to get free.

- They make you moody and angry if you want them but can’t have them
