Yep, yep… Natural food tastes really bland when your taste buds are used to being over stimulated by processed food. Even taking tiny baby steps towards healthy food, it is a serious adjustment. You cannot expect to successfully change life-long habits in a month or so, it’s a process and processes take time.

I was never on a diet, so if on a certain day the cravings were too strong or I just didn’t feel like resisting them, I didn’t. Most importantly I need to feel good, and having your mind going “candy, candy, candy, CAAAANNNDDDDYYYY” is the opposite of feeling good. Obviously I resisted sometimes, then often, then most of the times and then the cravings started to appear only seldom. Again: it’s a process. Sometimes you take steps forward, and sometimes you need to take a step back and readjust. I was never too hard on myself because I am on a journey towards health, not towards weight loss, and I never established a deadline. To me it’s not as much about the destination as it is about the road, and the road is made of all the changes I need to make.

Also, exercise was very helpful when it came to managing the cravings, since when I was distracted in fitness class and pumped up with endorphins afterwards, junk food was really the last thing on my mind. So I suggest you spend sometime considering the following sentences:
