Question: When I am aware that I am craving for Mickey Dee’s , I know that the craving isn’t good, and will try to suppress the feeling. However, that made me more disappointed instead – because I cannot eat Mickey Dee’s, and at the same time, my craving just doesn’t disappear. Any advice?
Answer: It’s easy to drop craving for Mc Junk when you realise, more in depth, on how its foods are mostly unhealthy for yourself, animals, other humans and the planet. Watch this… ‘Super Size Me’: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcgAzuNKGNA (It was a big hit!) and this, on what happens to their fries when left untouched: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMWq26zH_sU This is how unnatural Mc Junk stuff can be. Here’s another, on how Mc Burgers are unfit for consumption: http://higherperspective.com/2014/03/chef-jamie-oliver-proves-mcdonalds-burgers-unfit-human-consumption.html
If you see things as they are, for what they are not worth, there is no need to suppress the craving – it will dissolve by itself. Here is another link for how Mc Fries are frighteningly derived: http://www.truthfeed.net/shocking-ingredients-in-mcdonalds-french-fries
Settling for healthier food instead, there is satisfaction with what is better and no craving for what is worse. These principles apply for dissolving other forms of craving too — recognise their harms and work towards helpful alternatives – so as to not feel a gap in fulfilment.
I come across a URL link, stated that Meditation can managing food craving.
