What Your Food Cravings Mean and How to Overcome Them
by Doreen Virtue
It's no secret that I struggle with my weight and being the avid book reader that I am, I am always reading about weight loss topics. Most of them give you a lot of scientific data, diet tips, and exercise options. But if you've ever watched a reality show with people trying to lose the pounds, you know that the issues go beyond just stopping at too many fast food restaurants or not being able to push yourself away from the table. There is almost always and emotional reason behind our food addictions and until we deal with those underlying problems, releasing the weight will be difficult.
Constant Craving takes it a little further by pointing out the emotional ties to specific food cravings. For example, chocolate is my craving of choice, and that points to a need for reassurance, love and support. To help you through the process of understanding and overcoming your cravings, Virtue provides alternate foods, exercises, meditations, affirmations and other alternative methods to use. This was a very enlightening and interesting take on the issue of weight loss and I found the tools easy to use and effective.
