I have been waiting for two days to publish this particular post because I am a skeptic and I wasn't convinced that this weird shit would work. But it does.
It is called EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) or Tapping. The reason I am so certain this is right for me is because I was surfing the internet and I stumbled on this site by accident and downloaded the free manual and then, THE VERY NEXT DAY, I was listening to one of my MP3's from Unstoppable Fat Loss and it was discussed in great length as a life changing technique.
I don't usually post videos (because I never watch them on blogs) but if you've got 5 minutes, take a quick look. This girl is so cute and endearing (and a New Zealander). She does a wonderful job of describing the easiest EFT technique.
Every time I feel like eating when I am not hungry I say 'Even though I want to eat when I am not hungry (or I feel like a binge) I deeply and completely love and accept myself'. Somehow the craving goes away and the words 'deeply and completely love and accept myself' are now branded on my brain.
I have said to myself at times, I just wish I could take a pill to stop this anxiety and stress that drives me to eat for comfort. Doing the tapping sequence seems to work like taking a 'chill pill'.
Just try it a few times -- try it on something that is easy to notice a difference with (like actual physical pain). I used it first on my dodgy leg that I injured dead-lifting the other day (Even though I have a painful leg I deeply and completely love and accept myself). Surprisingly, the pain got better almost immediately.
Then try EFT with your cravings -- it can't hurt and it may be the intervention you've been looking for.
