What Nagging Cravings Are Telling You

You may not know this, but I struggled with my weight for decades (like the first 30 years of my life).

While I never tried diets like The Zone Diet, The South Beach Diet, Weight Watchers, etc, I did try different types of dietary theories like low fat, low carb, sugar-free, Whole 30, etc.

Each time I tried a new program, I felt excited and optimistic, thinking “this is going to be the ONE.” 
Some of the programs actually worked quite well…at least for a while. 
While I was losing weight, I was on a high. You know the feeling… your clothes are looser, you feel sexier and more confident – even in a bathing suit. 
And then something changed.  
Despite my best intentions to eat healthy, my cravings always got the better of me, and I could no longer adhere to the strict guidelines of whatever dietary theory I was trying. 
My cravings became stronger than my desire to lose weight. 
Cravings for… 

  • McDonalds french fries
  • BBQ Kettle Chips
  • Baskin Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream
  • Fresh baked, right out of the oven Nestle Tollhouse cookies
  • A red velvet Sprinkles cupcakes
  • Krispy Kreme donuts

The list goes on and on.

Every time I gave in to those cravings I would beat myself up feeling like a failure, yet again. 
Can you relate? 
What I didn’t realize at the time is that my cravings weren’t my fault. 
After years of beating myself up, I learned that my cravings were caused by specific foods that were irritating my body and causing weight loss resistance.  
Eating these problematic foods was wreaking havoc inside my body. And as a result, I experienced intense cravings that caused me to lose control. 
I thought I just needed more willpower, but it turned out that I simply needed to tweak my diet by removing these problematic foods. 
What a relief it was to finally figure this out!
