This is a helpful thread.
I’ve found Allen Carr’s work interesting and helpful. I notice I have a sugar addiction and when I start, I struggle stopping. But he teaches to remove the DESIRE, and then you aren’t conditioned to overeat.
I don’t like the idea that I would be addicted forever and always needing to be abstinent from sugar.
BUT, I do think I need to realize that I have an unhealthy attachment to having loads of sugar at night and abstinence from that for awhile is necessary. Not because I need to eat that way forever, but because I am CHOOSING to show myself I can go without it.
Does that make sense?
I’m not missing out by not eating crummy food, but I want a different outcome these day!!!
