One minute, you’re innocently going about your day – the next, you’re in the clutches of desire.

Your object of lust: a chocolate cupcake or a piece of pizza. Next thing you know, you’re licking frosting off your fingers guiltily.

What just happened? You were clobbered by a food craving.

We have all been there.

Many years ago, I was given a great piece of nutrition advice that has stuck with me ever since, and I believe it’s especially powerful for those eating a raw food diet.

It said:

– Whenever you feel tempted by the wrong food, just EAT IT!

Yep, I am not kidding.

You will notice that after eating the wrong stuff your emotional needs will not be satisfied and if anything, you will feel worse afterwards.

Eating junk food would most likely leave you bloated, lethargic, and depleted of energy that may last for a few hours or even days; and it will remind you of the importance of eating the right diet.

Another important tip:

Write your experience down in a piece of paper or a note in your phone/computer, or in a diary or journal.

And the next time you are tempted by cravings, read what you have written from previous experience. It will put you off of making the same mistake again.

Try out this trick, it works!
