Kill the Cravings {without killing yourself}

Kill the Cravings without Killing yourself!What do you do when the cravings devil on your shoulder is screaming CHOCOLATE and the cravings angel on the other shoulder is shouting KALE!

They are a killer and we all get them! But there is good news! You can do these three simple tricks to kill those cravings. This doesn’t mean you will never want chocolate again but you can cut the cravings and make them manageable.

1) STOP and ask yourself why? Why do you want the chocolate? (or bread or pasta, etc) Are you bored? Are you tired? Have you had your next meal for the day or are you hungry? Examine why you want that item and get to the root of the issue.

2) THIRSTY? Maybe you are just dehydrated. Many times dehydration will show up as hunger! Before you even think about that cheat drink an entire glass of water. Still want that cheat? Do this final step…

3) Ask yourself, is this worth it? Is this piece of chocolate worth the 3-5 pounds I am going to lose this week by staying on track? Is there a replacement item I can eat? Try an Ideal Protein Chocolate Ready-Made drink or an Ideal Protein Cookie Dough Swirl Bar instead!

It’s said a craving doesn’t last longer than 7 minutes and it’s the decision-making of the craving, not the food itself, causing the desire. If you tell yourself as soon as the craving hits NO, I will not be eating that now but I will have a small treat after dinner. The craving will dissipate. Set eating times for yourself and if you know you are hungry every few hours allow for snacks at those times. Craving sugar? Try some jicama or sliced bell peppers!

Remember you are in charge not your cravings! You have come too far to take orders from a cookie!

Ideal Protein is great! My husband and I both lost weight by following the plan and learning how to eat healthy. We both had tried many other plans but this was the one that worked for us.

I am so glad I decide to try Ideal Protein. It has given me my life back. I have lost 89 lbs and have about 50 more to go. I was so glad to hear that I didn’t have to exercise because of my knees. I was taking 2 Celebrex a day for my knees. I have not needed one in months. I have tried many diets including Lap Band which was the worse thing I ever did. I had nothing but problems.
I lost 50 pounds in three months following the Ideal Protein Protocol. It completely changed my life. I tried every program out there and Ideal Protein is the only one that worked for me. I feel & look younger at 40 than I did at 30!!
I LOVE Ideal Protein. I lost 70 lbs in less than 7 months without exercise or fads. Love the one-on-one coaching I received every week. The science behind this program is what made it work for me. I didn’t have a weight problem, I had a metabolic problem and I was well on my way to Metabolic Syndrome. Thank you for giving me my life back Ideal Protein!!
