I took a whole year break from chocolate. I stopped eating all sweets for weeks or months. I created challenges to follow for myself and my community.
When I was accidentally dieting (because I seriously didn’t know it – most people don’t), I would think about what foods will help me lose weight, how much I should eat to lose weight, when to eat so I lose weight, etc.
When we have a craving for certain foods, it feels as if we have no control over our actions. Cravings feel urgent, and important.
