Your food cravings, desires, and compulsions are all based on past experiences, exposures, and habits. At first, as you begin to reshape your eating habits, your mind is going to want what it’s been conditioned to “want” (a.k.a., comfort food). Once you grasp the deeper meaning of how habits can ruin and rule your life, you will begin to understand that by re-forming your culinary habits, your brain chemistry will also begin to reprogram its desires. In time you, your mind, your body, and your habits can be reshaped. When this happens, there’s no more struggle—just living your intentions. And that’s a wonderful place to be.
