Cravings from the past
We do not need to be ashamed, but to treat them smartly!
“It’s in your kitchen, not in your mind!”
By making a dramatic change in our lives and nutrition, most people are confronted with the experience of missing some food from their old habits or having cravings for food that they did not imagine before.
By making better and healthier choices in place of our old desires, we can more quickly and easily “get rid of these crap and their consequences.

Other factors that help manage the crap:
Schedule your meal. Prepare your snacks and meals so you will not resort to ready solutions. It is also more economical!
Variety, variety, variety! Different materials, spices and cooking patterns will satisfy the palate and make it easier to feel satiety. Incorporate all tastes into your everyday life.
Relax. Sleep, meditation, yoga, resting body, mind and spirit to ask for less food for our energy needs.
Conscious choices. See how your food affects and rank it in the desired or not. Thinking only on the basis of taste, we continue the vicious circle. Nutritional change also requires mental work. By altering our eating choices, you will soon see a change in taste preferences! Choose healthier, discard unhealthy.
