Your body craves what you give it. Think about that statement…
You’re not depriving yourself of anything if you get out of the
When trying to get out of the habit of eating junk foods, it will take some time, but slowly you will begin to enjoy the taste of things that you may not have before… or that you assumed you wouldn’t (even though you’ve never tried it).
If you begin transitioning into eating better, you will actually learn that those foods that used to satisfy a hunger, or a craving, or boredom, will no longer be able to do that because of how your mind and your tastes have changed. If you never stop having your bag of peanut M&M’s at 3pm everyday, or if you stop but don’t try hard enough to find a healthy alternative, you’ll never find out if there can be something better for you that you will enjoy.
Those salty and sugary snacks can begin to actually lose their appeal. That may seem hard to imagine if you love your Doritos or your Snickers bar habit, but that just proves how mental that challenge really is. The mind can be changed. Cravings can be changed.
