In spite of what you may have heard, food cravings do not indicate nutritional deficiency. If your food cravings were an indicator of nutritional deficiency, you’d be craving vegetables and fruit. Cravings are a thought. And, like all thoughts, you create it and you can control it. With self hypnosis you can change your thoughts and end your cravings for unhealthy food and create healthy cravings. Learn hypnosis for weight loss and be in control of what you eat and how much you eat.
Do Food Cravings Indicate Nutritional Deficiency?
Huffpost Healthy Living, October 9, 2012: “If cravings were an indicator of nutritional deficiency, we’d all crave fruits and vegetables,” says Karen Ansel, MS, RD, CDN. “The fact that we all want high carb, high fat comfort foods, along with the research, is a pretty good indicator that cravings aren’t related to deficiencies.”
The literature backs Ansel’s assertion: research consistently finds that cravings are most often related to social rather than nutritional cues. Even a commonly perceived craving-culprit, hormonal fluctuation caused by menstrual cycles, turns out to have no measurable impact on cravings.
But that doesn’t mean that cravings aren’t real — and don’t have a true, physiological origin. Stress (or sadness or boredom) and external influence conspire to make you feel hunger. And what you crave may be steeped in the culture — such as old tropes, like women crave chocolate, or advertising visuals that command you to “crave” — or it may be based in childhood. Very often, Ansel explains, people crave the things that soothed them growing up.
Besides changing your thoughts and emotions with self hypnosis, there is another action that you can take to end your cravings for food that makes you fat. Every 21 days you get all new taste buds. If you stop eating items like sugar, soda, or cheese for 21 days, the next time you eat the item, it wont taste as good as you remembered it – in fact, you may discover that you don’t like it at all.
