We live in a world where food temptations are everywhere…which leads to cravings, which leads to eating things that you shouldn’t, which leads to pounds gained.

Again. And again. And again.

Here’s how you can fight back using your most powerful asset: YOUR BRAIN.

The key to overcoming food temptations and putting an end to food craving is in building negative associations in place of existing positive ones. I’ll break this process down for you in two steps:

Keys for Overcoming Temptation and Ending Cravings #1:

Create a STRONG Negative Association with Unhealthy Food

You may not have realized it, but up until this point you’ve placed unhealthy, fattening foods on a pedestal in your mind. As long as the wrong foods are on that pedestal you’ll continue to give into your cravings and will continue to gain fat.

These foods make you unhealthy.

These foods cause weight gain.

These foods drain your energy.

These foods kill your confidence.

These foods lessen your quality of life.

These foods damage your love life.

Every time that you feel tempted to eat an unhealthy food, focus on your list of negatives. Kick the junk off the pedestal and put something healthy in its place.

Keys for Overcoming Temptation and Ending Cravings #2:

Create a STRONG Positive Association with Wholesome Foods

Now that your mental food pedestal has been cleared, put truly wholesome food items on it. Juicy fresh fruit, crispy vegetables and savory lean meats are the place to start.

List off the things that you love about healthy food…

These foods make you healthy.

These foods promote fat loss.

These foods boost your energy.

These foods build your confidence.

These foods improve your quality of life.

I encourage you to immerse yourself into the world of healthy, wholesome foods. Browse the aisles of your local natural foods store. Stroll through a farmer’s market. Pack healthy snacks to bring to work. Clear your kitchen of junk.

Use the technique above consistently and you will soon find that healthy, wholesome foods are your favorite. And craving the wrong foods will be a thing of your past.
