Food. It’s one of those things we simply can not live without, yet in our current society is actually killing so many of us. This is because many of us have an unhealthy, indulgent relationship with food. We no longer eat to live, instead we live to eat.
For some people food has become an addiction, particularly high carbohydrate foods. I myself had a terrible problem with sugar addiction. I LOVE sweets. Notice I say this in the present tense and not the past tense. This is because an addiction never truly goes away and I’m very aware that if I am not careful, I can end up right back where I was a couple of years ago.
The longer you can avoid your trigger foods, the easier it gets to say “no” all together or to begin eating only modest amounts. Where I would have gone on a wild binge in the past, I am now able to put aside small amounts of things I would like eat without eating the entire container! Sounds like a small victory to some, but for me this has been a huge improvement.
Today I went grocery shopping and simply had no craving for the things I use to binge on. Today I walked right on past!
