Momentary Cravings and Food Addiction Psychology…

food addiction

To begin there is a difference between needing food and wanting food.

Your body knows the difference. The trouble is: your mind can’t always differentiate between the two. There is an easy way to tell whether you’re hungry or not.

Test yourself.

Hold a healthy food you don’t like in one hand (1), and something unhealthy you always crave in the other (2).

Then ask yourself, “which one would I rather eat?”

If you choose to eat (1)… because you know it’s better for your body, then you know you’re forcing yourself into something that doesn’t feel natural.

Wrong choice.

If you choose to eat (2)… because that is, of course, more tempting, then you know not only that you aren’t hungry at this point, but also that you might be suffering from food addiction.

Wrong choice again.

Moreover, ask yourself if you’d be content throwing away (2) right now. If you’re attracted to it so powerfully that you cannot “not have it”, then it is a symptom of an existing problem with emotional eating / food addiction.

So what’s the alternative?

If you’re genuinely hungry (your body is experiencing a natural need for nutrition), you will not care what you eat. You will just want to eat!

That’s actual hunger.

Test this further by going without drinking for a day. When you’re thirsty, you will drink anything! Even if you can’t stand plain water, when you’re genuinely dry it will taste delicious regardless.

Well, in conclusion: if any of these things sound familiar, you might want to seek help for an eating disorder. Alternatively, educate yourself on food addiction and food-related disorders. Ask for help if these habits are uncontrollable.

The best way to lose weight effectively is to understand the psychology behind why you are addicted. If you can’t seem to change this addiction an ebook on food addiction is your best bet.
