Fact or Fiction: Cravings Fade

There's a rumor around town that if you don't give into a craving it'll come back again and again. Ya know the old, "I might as well just eat this now so the craving doesn't come back."

I've been doing some poor eating (for research purposes only, of course) and I've found that the more sugar and salt and fat I eat - the more I want it. It's truly addicting.

In fact, I think I create more cravings by giving in, not less!

However, for the last week or so (since I'm no longer doing research) I've realized that when I don't give into a craving, they fade!

In this case: out of sight, out of mind. Time apart does not make the heart grow fonder.

And guess what...they don't come back, either.

Last night I was craving...actually, I don't even want to tell you...and I brushed my teeth and flossed and used mouth wash and I was over it.

And you know what? When I woke up this morning, I didn't even think about the craving. I felt really good that I didn't give in.

Remember: We never regret making good diet choices. But we usually regret making poor ones.

So, let's all stop thinking that if we don't give into a craving, it'll come back again until we give in.

I think we're mixing the word cravings with feelings. Feelings, if not dealt with, usually come back again and again. Unless you deal with them. Or suppress them. But that's an entirely different ball game.

Fact: Cravings Fade!
