The Stronger the Image, The Stronger the Craving

Now I get it!  At least I'm understanding a little better.  Not too long ago my friend and funny motivational Tough Nutrition Choicesspeaker, Linda Larsen, was trying to understand how I can resist the urge to splurge.  Why don't I cave when a macadamia nut cookie or cinnamon bun hot from the oven is offered?   I didn't know how to answer at the time but after reading this insightful article on cravings I think I can say that I must place enough time between indulging in a decadent dessert (or chip or cheeseburger) that the image of the food has faded in my mind, therefore there isn't a strong enough visual that compels me towards the "reward".  Fascinating!  See if you agree.  Click on this link and scroll down to the "Cravings" article.

From your Healthy Lifestyle Motivational Speaker who needs to put more time between her Pinot Noir visuals!

But all it took was a chance vegetarian cooking class and some high-energy music to open her eyes upon a whole new world of healthy living. For 30 years Polly has practiced, studied, taught, educated and lived a healthy lifestyle that makes her such a powerful speaker.

Polly’s down-to-Earth and humorous approach mirrors her own lifelong journey to lasting, positive changes. The audience walks away with tangible plans for improving their health and their lives through food, fitness and fun.

  1. This is BRILLIANT!!!!!!! Simpy brilliant!!!!!! Just as we as motivational speakers talk about visualizing your success – we can take away the visualization from cheating so we don't want it anymore. This is amazing. Thank you soooo much for sharing Polly. Can't wait to share it now.

  2. Wow! This is fabulous information for EVERYONE – not just motivational speakers trying to resist that garbage food that we are confronted with on the road and in airports all the time. GREAT information Polly!!! And it makes SO much sense! Thank you for helping me understand what ideas, strategies, techniques and awarenesses will give me the results that I want.

  3. Oh, so that's why I've been craving chocolate and hamburgers!! On a serious note, I needed to read this Polly. It makes such sense. I can maintain a healthy life style for so long without it being an issue and then BAM! Back to choices that leave me feeling sluggish and chubby. Now I know if I can just hold out long enough, I'll be able to hold out even longer. Now if only they'd get those Five Guys out of the airports, this one gal would have a better shot.
