How to Stop Cravings In Their Tracks (Before You End Up Cheating)

by Jordan Reasoner

We’re all human… and part of being human in today’s world we live in means CRAVINGS.

And with cravings comes falling off the wagon…

And with falling off the wagon comes flare ups and setbacks…

It’s a slippery slope of shame and feeling sorry for ourselves.

And I know because I deal with cravings too.  In this video, I share the specific foods that bring me to my knees and exact steps I use to beat cravings before they spiral out of control.

I cover everything from my “state change” exercise to the root cause of cravings that Functional Medicine testing and supplementation can really help resolve.

If you’re human… and you’re struggling with cravings, this video is an open, honest conversation about what to do about them from someone who’s been fighting the same battle for the last 7 years.

Enjoy!

Hi my name is Lynette, three and a half years ago I almost died due to alcoholic hepatis. I had nearly drunken myself to death. My body had totally shut down and was eating itself. I was almost orange from jaundice. I had had over 40 grand mal seizures and ended up in rehab for 11months by choice. I have been sober ever since and have slowly gotten a lot better. No matter what I do I can not get rid of my stomach fat. I meditate daily, do yoga, eat pretty well and do gentle exercise. I have been told I have IBS, possible leaky gut and I know I have candida. My head it always foggy and I get depressed easily when my stomach is bloated. I always feel as if my intestines are toxic and am constipated a lot. I also retain a lot of fluid especially around menstruation. Please help me. I have been studying reflexology and anatomy for the past two years. I cannot afford to keep trying new things all the time.

Hi Lynette, while the SCD diet is not geared toward weight loss, some find it can help them to lose needed weight and you can start here if you choose: http://scdlifestyle.com/scd-quick-start-guide/

Ahhh, this so hits home! It can totally derail you!! I appreciate your suggestions. I’m thinking that adrenal exhaustion (which I have) also adds fuel to the fire. Will keep the idea of amino acids for the brain in mind as well. Thank you!

Hi Jordan. It was interesting to listen to your video because those exact chips are ones that I have been tempted to eat after 14 years on the SCD. I was extremely sick when I went on the diet and was facing a colostomy and had a long term fistula/abscess. I had severe narrowing in my colon and rectal area almost to the point where I could not go to the bathroom. I just want to warn you after three days of eating A a few handfuls of these chips I did not get diarrhea yet I started to feel a twinge in the areas where I know I have narrowing. Now I have been struggling with constipation due to the narrowing. Those chips just weren’t worth it. I have cheated and other small ways throughout the years such as salad dressings and restaurants and eating a little sugar in Store ought spaghetti sauce. This has not bothered me but the starchy chips do.
As far as fighting cravings. I also drink water. As a Christian I also know that Jesus gives me the strength to do what seems impossible to me and he has as far as following this diet. I never thought I could do that. But I pray that he gives me strength when I focus on the right things and he has. I know that when I focus on the big picture of being well for my family and to do what God wants me to do then these temporary desires will fade and become weaker. That is something God has taught me focus on the good of others and what is better and the cravings of sin dissipate. When you are hungry for chips eat almonds instead focus on the good and not the bad. Just my two cents 🙂
