Conquer Cravings: Chocolate

This lifestyle can seem restrictive. Getting over certain food cravings and / or addictions can be a challenge.

It seems people miss things like cheese, chocolate, crunchy things, salty things, flour things, ice cream, coffee, sugar, creamer, milk etc. Just the mention of the food item, a thought or a picture of it, can set off consuming thoughts and longing.

This is for those who are not lucky enough to be able to make up their minds and swear these foods off forever. Although it is best to taper off these foods as they are calorie dense, harmful to your health, make one eat more calories and do not help heal the addicted brain, here is some help for those in transition.

My next few blogs will attack these Beasts. Today I will help you deal with Chocolate.

For some, the only way to combat cravings is abstinence. If you are not ready to quit chocolate for good, here are some of the healthy ideas which I share with my clients.

Remember, if you make green smoothies, you can always add cocoa powder to make a delicious and healthy chocolate shake.
