Giving In to Urges and Cravings
Christy R. Hall
Using the power of food, tapping, hypnosis and Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) to win the war on weight and emotional eating.
It’s rarely about the food…
It’s rarely about the food when you give in to an urge or a craving. It’s all about what you were doing in your head minutes or hours beforehand.
Were you daydreaming about it? Fantasizing about a taste? Smell? Texture?
Were you feeling left out, alone, stressed, anxious, angry, sad or some other negative emotion that you were (are?) trying to run away from?

When you decide to eat in response to feelings, or cave in to cravings, you’re essentially saying that putting food in my face is:
+ more important than my health.
+ more important than my weight.
+ more important than my relationships with others and myself.
+ more important than my promises, intentions, and goals.
+ more important than my self-respect, self-esteem, and self-confidence.
What’s worse is you might *think* you’re saying that your emotions are actually more important than all of those things – but eating doesn’t actually address them. Eating is a suppression of emotions. It’s a repression of self. So you are really saying that eating is (again) more important than the experiencing, expressing, and resolving of feelings.
There’s #nojudgment here, we each have our own path to walk. But is this the kind of food-based hell-prison you want to live in?
