Believe or not that when we have a craving for something, such as certain desert or food, that the feeling only stays with us for 8-14 minutes, and if we can control ourselves from not eating, then the craving feeling will go away. A study done by Dr. Jana Klauer, with her book called, How The Rich Get Thin, gives advice on how we can control our eating habits.
It is called The Stop!Watch method to curb food cravings: any craving can be stopped within just 15 minutes, there is a secrete as to how we can pass this time without giving into temptation. First is to drink a big glass of water, this is to send a signal to the brain, maybe the signal that the brain is sending to us is that we’re thirsty and not hungry, plus drinking water is good for your health.
If the feeling is still there, then eat a healthy snack, to increase glucose in your blood stream, now it might be low; healthy snack can be carrot, yogurt, or fruits, and then following by another big glass of water. After 8-14 minutes has passed, your craving might be diminished, therefore not much damage done to your body.
