Cravings

Use the below worksheet to keep track of your weekly cravings, the ones you’re deferring until your chosen treat day.

If you’re craving pancakes on Wednesday, write them down in the breakfast section.

Cheeseburger?

Stick it in the lunch section.

Go crazy.

Today isn’t about healthy choices.

It’s a short-term mental exercise designed for specific results.

The act of writing it down has a somewhat magical effect of transferring the desire from your mind to the paper.

And for many people, it lessens the intensity of the craving by reminding you you’re not “going without” but “going until.”

Rules for the Day:  There are no rules.

Eat everything you’ve been deferring.

For Breakfast I will eat:

*_______________

For Lunch I will eat:

For Dinner I will eat:

Are you nervous about derailing your discipline from the week?

Don’t be.

Many people report greater weight loss from this due to the metabolic activity spike.

And, this has the strange effect of showing you how poorly your body feels after indulging versus how good you’ve likely felt during the week.

Face yourself in the mirror each day and remind yourself . . .

. . . That you’re doing this for your health, your life, and your family.

You’re giving your taste buds the same tough love you’d give a child when you’re trying to steer their behavior toward more positive choices.

Then remind yourself you can do anything for 21 days and the results will be worth it, because you are worth it.

Forgive yourself

This rule may be one of the most important, which is why we left it until last.

Few acts are as powerful as forgiveness and we’re going to start with the person in the mirror.

You’ll forgive yourself for whatever actions have brought you to the point in your life where you’re not happy with the way you look or feel.

You’ve taken responsibility for the actions that have gotten you here, you’ve owned the actions and realized everything is a matter of cause and effect.

Now it’s time to forgive yourself for those past actions (or inactions) which haven’t served your best interest.

Forgive yourself for any ignorance you had of the right way to eat and then commit to make a positive change moving forward.

You also need to prepare to forgive yourself in case you find yourself stumbling with this new taste-training regimen.

We want you to follow it to the letter.

We want you to be so disciplined you complete every step easily.

We believe you will.

We also recognize some will have greater challenges than others.

Without giving you a green light to cheat on the program, we want you to know if you do cheat, if you stumble or falter, it’s okay.

Keep going.

Don’t get so upset with yourself you stop the program.

Push on.

If you give in to temptation, if you cheat on the program, don’t quit the program.

Instead, notice the way the guilt feels and use it to fuel yourself the next time you’re tempted to get off track.

Realize you’re only cheating yourself and you can forgive yourself and continue on.

The simple fact you’re making the choice to do this is a victory for you.

Now it’s time to see yourself through to the end, which we believe you’ll do!
