Use your mind to stop food cravings

 
Music to your ears, right? BBC News recently reported that a small study has found that subjects who simply imagined themselves eating the food they craved (in this case, M&M’s) wanted the food less than those who had not been thinking about it.

The researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have proven that repeatedly thinking about eating a food reduces the desire to actually eat that food, due to a process called “habituation.” This means that the more someone has of something, the less pleasure he/she gets from it. As the item becomes less rewarding, the person wants to consume less of it.

So, the next time you’re totally craving sweets, imagine yourself repeatedly eating a handful of your fave candy. Then, indulge slightly by picking just one piece to feel fully satisfied.

What do you think? Will imagining eating candy stop your cravings? Blog about it, babes!
