Cravings Albany NY

Binging usually starts with a craving. We want something we really know is not good for us, so we decide not to have it—not because we don’t want it, but because we feel we shouldn’t. This leads to a feeling of deprivation which can, and usually does, lead to binging and guilt, with vows to never do it again.

Cravings

by Roe Gallo, M.A.

From Living Nutrition vol. 6

It seems the main reason for binging is that we feel deprived. Binging usually starts with a craving.

Does this sound a little familiar?

If you have a craving for something it’s usually because you associate that something with a good feeling. This feeling could be purely sensual — taste, smell, texture or it could be a memory.
