You recently began a diet, but you want a juicy burger, salty fries, and a big Coke. One mouthful will break your resolve. What do?
Food temptation is difficult. We understand! Junk food cravings are natural responses that should not be disregarded. One approach to curb urges is better than others. Dieters rejoice—it's easy.
Sound crazy? According to Dr. Leslie Korn, author of the new cookbook The Good Mood Kitchen and mental-health nutrition specialist, it can work.
Korn believes consciously chewing a grape produces chemicals that might reduce your worst desires. Examine a raisin's dips and grooves to taste it. Sniff it. Keep an eye out for signs like a churning stomach or a wet mouth.
Notice the raisin's velvety core and tastes as you chew carefully. Swallow it and keep motionless as you visualize the fruit travelling through your body to your stomach.
That's it! You just lost your appetite in five minutes for a few calories. How? Korn told The New York Post that the raisin exercise combines awareness with control over "automatic" reflexes.
Mindful eating causes parasympathetic dominance, slowing heart rate and breathing. GABA, an anti-anxiety neurotransmitter, also rises, stabilizing appetite and improving digestion during your next meal or snack.
Korn advises a raisin owing of its distinct flavor and texture, but a little bite of virtually anything would work. These healthful snacks may fulfill cravings even without raisins.
