Every year, when clients give up a bad eating habit for Lent (often sugar, soda, fried foods, etc.), I hear the same thing: That by the end of Lent, they no longer miss it. The cravings go away, the desire is diminished, it’s EASY and automatic.
So why do most people take back their bad habits afterwards?!
Because they get curious. Or they do it out of habit. And it only takes a little to make all those cravings and desires come back. New research on processed foods is proving it’s not just you…it’s addiction.
So smarten up this time! Next time you endure the suffering of giving up a junky food, and get to that beautiful place where you don’t miss it, DON’T GO BACK!
Have a good week,
