With the holidays upon us, it’s pretty hard to avoid thinking about all the special, once-a-year, foods that abound right now.
And for so many of us, thinking about the foods means that cravings hit.
When I hear from readers and clients around the holidays, what I sense more than almost anything else is fear.
Fear that they won’t be able to resist all the foods.
Fear that cravings will be overwhelming.
Fear that eating everything they are trying to avoid will cause a flare of their symptoms, and they’ll be worse after the holidays than they were before. . . and all their previous hard work will be undone.
To be sure you aren’t drawn in by cravings, there are two important distinctions to know about them. That’s what I talk about in today’s video.
