So fellow contestants, how are your craving levels going? I am surprised, especially after my weekend away at the BRC surround by delicious food, that I am having less cravings. I used to love Steers Wacky Wednesday, and I was thinking about it today for obvious reasons.
I do still put down most of my cravings to being purely mental, as I am not experiencing hunger, except when i am not drinking enough water.
What strategies do you use when you have a craving?
I acknowledge that I am having the craving
I accept that it is a craving
I ask myself where did the urge come from
I examine the source – usually some sort of mind hunger from external stimuli
I accept that it’s not a stomach hunger and its not real
Then the craving just sort of goes away.
I previously just used to try bury the thought, and then it would pop up later even stronger! But give this a try if you are experiencing cravings, and see if it works for you.
