For most dieters avoiding their favorite foods is an epic battle of body and mind that you end up losing after a few days of fighting back the overwhelming desire to eat all those foods you know are bad for you.
I’ve got good news and bad news.
First the bad news. If you don’t get control over these urges you’ll probably never lose weight. If you’re forever at the mercy of these subconscious cravings for unhealthy foods then becoming lean and fit will never be more then an unfulfilled dream.
You might say to yourself – I’ll just workout extra hard to compensate for my poor diet. Here’s the catch. A steady diet of junk food you throw your body’s vital internal mechanisms into a state of chaos. The carbohydrate filled junk food sends your blood sugar soaring, which in turn triggers a hormonal dump to counter act the sky high insulin levels, and when your insulin drops like a stone you’re left with barely enough energy to pick of the remote and flip through the channels. That’s when you tell yourself you’ll just hit the gym extra hard tomorrow, which of course doesn’t happen.
If you want to succeed you’re going to have eliminate junk food from your life. You might think to give yourself a cheat day where you eat anything you want then eat healthy the rest of the week, but that cheat day usually turns in to 2 cheat days, then a cheat meal every single day, then it’s back to the McDonald’s drive through for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – and Taco Bell for a late night snack.
It’s best to just cut the garbage out of your diet all together.
And that brings me to the good news. You can do it without will power, or at least not the monumental amount of will power most dieters need to break a crippling junk food addiction.
On the sales page for my Master Cleanse Book I talk about how after you finish the Master Cleanse the real health benefits start to take affect, namely a natural shift away from unhealthy foods, and a natural craving for healthy foods.
This is a dream come true for everyone who’s suffered from yo-yo dieting, and as one Master Cleanse user tells us, you keep losing weight after the cleanse:
It’s me again. I still don’t have a scale but I weighed myself at my moma’s and I lost another four pounds since going off the cleanse in late February” and I am not even trying to lose! Someone told me the cleanses effects on your body change the way you process food. I seem to be proof. I have almost eliminated junk foods from my diet, so that is probably part of it. The Cleanse was one of the best things I ever did” even though I have to go buy new clothes now because mine are a size or two too big!! But who’s complaining!?
If food addiction has been sabotaging your weight loss efforts doing a 10 day master cleanse might be something to consider.
