Curb Those Unhealthy Cravings

Medical Director of BodyLogicMD of Sacramento, Dr. Bob Ghelfi discusses how to curb unhealthy cravings

A lot of times, when you’re craving a food, what you’re craving is actually something you’re allergic to, or that’s causing you problems. What I’ve found is that most people like that have to have a white-black thing. You have to be off it completely — it’s not something that you can just have once in a while.

I don’t think there’s a good way of telling people or expecting people to be moderate with foods they don’t need to be eating. I don’t think people are moderate with their cravings. I think they’re extreme, and they have to be extremely off of it. So you can’t cheat.

But, if you can just stay off it for a while, there’s a good chance that your cravings go away and you can stay off it forever. So, we often just eliminate it for a while — for at least a month — and, for a lot of people, once you get off it for a while, you feel a lot better.
