OVEREATING PART 2
I thought pomegranates might work for me since it has the same taste as multivitamins do, but it didn’t help. Clearly, it doesn’t contain as much vitamins as the multivitamins do, duh! And I’m so tired of drinking those multivitamins! Luckily, I just got my audio book The Beck Diet Solution: Train Your Brain to Think Like a Thin Person in the mail the other day. It’s totally awesome! Love it! It made me realize I’ve never really dealt with my cravings issue before. Every time I crave something, I’ve been trying to ignore the feelings, which led me being even more obsessed with food. Finally, I would give in and overeat. I already lost my battle against food when I started negotiating with my thoughts. Here are some of my sabotaging thoughts associated with food:
- It won’t matter if I eat this food just this one time
- I know I shouldn’t eat this but I can’t resist it
- I’ve had such a hard day, I deserve to eat this
- If I don’t eat now, I won’t be able to go to sleep
With the beck diet solution I’m learning how to counteract my sabotaging thoughts with helpful responses. It’s helping me to overcome other weight loss obstacles as well by changing the way I think.
Another good book that might be a good read is cravings secret which deal directly with the cravings issue such as pizza, pasta, carbs, salty, fried foods, fast food, sugar, chocolate and more.
