One of the big positives about having a blog are the wonderful people, that reach out to you, the opportunity to connect with people that are just the same as you are- the same interests, same goals; people who have the same struggles and the opportunity to help each other.

The other day I received a really funny message, from a person I’ve known for a long time and even though I hardly ever see her, she will always have a special place in my life!

And the message was this:

“If you write an article about “How to get rid of the obtrusive thoughts about sweets and especially about chocolate”, I will love you forever! I haven’t given into the temptation, and I am not eating chocolate, put it is so hard on my mind. I see chocolate on every corner. Walk in my shoes for a minute. I am in Belgium, the country of the best chocolate; I am 15 minutes away from France, the country of the best wine and cheese… and what to say about love and French fries. Besides that I am an hour away from Netherlands and the weed.” 🙂

This message really made my day, but it made me think about how I managed to get rid of “the obtrusive thoughts about sweets and especially chocolate”.

If you’ve known me for a while, you are probably aware how much chocolate, candy, cakes and ice cream I ate in my past. Seems like I overtook with eating for a couple lives to come! And today, I don’t ever think of eating junk, not because I am depriving myself, but just because I really don’t have the desire and need to eat it!

Eat Real Food

At first sight this is really lame, but truly important when it comes to getting rid of the thoughts and the desire to eat sweets- eat quality food. Often times the urge to eat a particular food, comes from some nutrient deficiency in your body.( Have a Food Craving? Find Out What Hides Behind It!)When you don’t give your body, what it needs to function properly, it is gonna revenge you, by forcing you to eat food, which will at least for a while satisfy its need for energy, i.e. carbs- sweets.

Often times people tell me how they have eating a couple candies for the whole day. It is absolutely normal, to constantly feel like eating sweets, when you don’t give your body real food.

Start eating more meat, eggs, fish, fresh vegetables, raw nuts and you will notice how when you are sated and when you give your body what it needs, you will rarely think about junk food.

Change your habits

Eating sweets sometimes really comes to having bad eating habits. Since we were kids, we are used to chewing something when we are in front of the PC, when we watch TV, when we are at the cinema, walking in the park and etc. In order to get rid of these habits, you need to show some will and try to necessitate a new behavior. Stay away from constantly chewing candies and biscuits.

At the beginning, if you need to, cut some peppers, carrots, cucumbers and eat this in front of the TV. As I’ve already said, it Is not the best thing to substitute the habit of eating junk food, with the habit of eating something else, even if it is healthy, but that is still some kind of a positive change!

Substitute the unhealthy sweets for healthy “sweets”

And I am not encouraging you to eat diet bars and diet desserts! When you feel like eating sweets, don’t immediately give in to eating chocolate and biscuits. What I used to do, was eat desserts that were made ONLY from real products. The less ingredients the dessert has, the better. One of my favorite “sweet temptations” are raw nuts with raisins ( I think that this always helps me satisfy the cravings for sweets) and homemade yogurt with banana and some cinnamon on top.

In the Recipe section( check here) you will find a lot of easy, quick to prepare and delicious, healthy desserts, that you could try.

As the time goes by, the more healthy food prevails over junk, the worse you will feel if you eat cakes, ice cream and so forth. As a matter of fact, if I try to eat a biscuit today, it tastes as if I am chewing pure sugar, so I really don’t feel like eating junk!

Are You Really Hungry or Are You Trying to Fill an Emotional Emptiness?

If you want my opinion, this is the main problem when it comes to chocolate- emotions. In this case, we are used to unconsciously bind food with positive emotions. And often times, when we struggle with something we search for comfort in food. As if it is going to solve our problems…

So if you feel like eating sweets, ask yourself “Am I hungry or am I just sad and angry?

Answer yourself and if you are hungry, you better eat one more steak. If the desire to eat has an emotional root, then find another outlet for your emotions! Check this.

    rhytidectomy, is one of the most requested of all invasive procedures.

    And a proficient plastic surgeon with a lot
    of experience, can take that even further. Furthermore, you need to really feel
    comfortable with the plastic surgeon you decide on.

    I say… I put things off a whole lot and never manage to get
    nearly anything done.
