The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers & cities; but to know someone who thinks & feels with us, & who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden ~ Goethe 2

brenda’s blog Shaking Hands with the Devil(s food)

There’s a certain group of people out there who are afraid of certain foods. And not because they’re allergic, which would cause them to go into anaphylaxis shock. Example: Sugar, more specifically, chocolate cake or Oreos or ice cream. You can pick a Sugaraphobe out of a crowd in a minute. i t Their Th i eyes gett allll crazy and d they th gasp with ith horror h if someone says something like: “Hey Molly, there’s a plate of birthday cupcakes in the break room… help yourself.” Terror would take over. What causes this mania? “I can’t have anything that has sugar in it, in my house. If I do, I eat it all. I have no control, so the only way to not eat it, is to not have it in the house. Period.” So pp thought g p process works,, right? g For a week maybe y a month,, then that suppressive what? Thoughts of anything sweet begin to take over, you can’t stop thinking and wanting. And not a little, a lot. Next thing you know you’re buying a bag of macaroons and eating a dozen before the grocery bag is folded and put away. As soon as you’re done your 12thcookie, the chastising, disappointment and shame begins. The third and final stage, also predictable: You vow to keep sweets out of your house, house for good this time, time but that never happens. happens The cycle continues. Sugar wins. So let’s agree, the all-or-none approach doesn’t really work-work, from a manage your life, long-term perspective. Wouldn’t it be nice to think you could actually make friends with food, I mean, enjoy it without surrendering to it, particularly to food that holds you in it’s spell? y p Making g peace p with food is p possible, but it takes some introspection and a little planning. If you’re looking for a magic pill, I’m plum out and P.S. there are none. I do have good news that can work for you in your effort to not overindulge in foods that have power over you. I know this is scary territory. But like anything in life. If you don’t face the fear, you can never take your power back. I don don’tt want to make this seem too simplistic, simplistic but there is a basic principle that can keep you in control of your choices: Replace don’t eliminate. And not with diet foods or substitutes that insult your taste buds. Eat real food. Example: For chocolate and/or sweet craving, try Teddy Grahams or animal crackers. They’re sweet and good and you get a decent amount of chewing per serving which satisfies your brain and your tongue. To address the quantity issue, when you get home from the store, dole out a serving, which translates to like 24 Teddy Grahams and 20ish animal crackers, then put them in ziplock sandwich bags. Have them at home, in the office, wherever. Eat them everyday if you want. No big deal. I’m not saying this one tip will change your life, but I am saying it’s a great way to start.
