It’s the beginning of a new year. Many are off the starting blocks of eating for health. However, along the way there’s that nine-letter obstacle to overcome. ADDICTION.
Addiction is that all-consuming craving that pulls one back into a bad habit. Another way of putting it is being continually “stuck in a rut.” Captured.
If you are caught in the continual cycle of food addiction and emotional eating, to break it, you MUST get radical.
That means you must pay the price to get free. That means making continual choices every single day of your life, through thick or thin, to never allow the circumstances of life be the excuse to quit and give into unhealthy indulgences.
- renew your mind continually by studying Dr. Fuhrman’s books and articles; and listen to his various teleconferences and programs
- eat those greens whether you like them in the beginning or not
- go for that walk whether you feel like it or not
- post your temptations and struggles and ask for help from others
- and/or talk with others on the Tuesday night phone chats
- ask Dr. Fuhrman questions on Ask the Doctor
- stick to the plan; no matter what; no matter how you feel; no excuses
In other words, you must get radically aggressive. Don’t be a passive by-stander. Roll up your sleeves and get in there and fight. Fight hard. Contend for freedom.
Know that cravings will subside significantly and then eventually go away as you continue to fill up on the wonderful bounty of nature’s delicious and nourishing foods: pomegranates, kiwis, berries, cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, bok choy, roasted peppers and garlic, lentils, nuts and seeds. In fact, when the addiction goes away, you'll naturally desire foods that promote optimal health. That's the ultimate beauty of committing to Dr. Fuhrman's high nutrient diet-style!
You must master the cycle of food addiction and emotional eating or it will master you.
There are no shortcuts. No magic pills. No easy ways out.
But it is so worth doing what it takes to get free. You will never regret any effort you put forth. The return investment will be the enjoyment of renewed health, vitality, and psychological freedom . . .for the rest of your life!
Many have conquered the downward spiral of food addiction and emotional eating. YOU can overcome it also.
Rise up and be the conqueror today!
Stick to the plan. No matter what. No matter how you feel. No excuses.
Are you mastering food addiction and emotional eating? What practical step(s) do you need to take today to fortify your commitment to freedom and optimal health?
