I used to love to eat gourmet jellybeans – the kind that comes in quirky flavors like popcorn, bubblegum, blueberry pie etc…
As soon as I began eating these jellybeans, I’d become deaf to my inner voice’s warnings: “Yo! Karen! Enough! You’re full! The bag’s nearly empty! STOP!”
I used to call these jellybeans my “Kryptobite” – because a few bites worked like Kryptonite on me – rendering me powerless over my cravings.
We all have our “Kryptobite” foods! Perhaps yours is chocolate, cake, candy bars, pizza, cheese, ice cream, french fries, chips, cupcakes, donuts…?
Happily I found a way to turn up my willpower for jellybeans, and turn down my cravings
Note: This is an NLP tool I share in my groundbreaking video course “Stop Emotional Eating”.
The shellac on jellybeans makes things nice and shiny. But the ingredients in the shellac on your jellybeans is not so nice. It’s a “secretion” from a Thailand insect, a beetle called “Kerria laca.”
Yes, that’s true! And I’m even wording it nicely. Let me be more blunt: Jellybeans have bug poop on them! Strange – but true! Junk food truly has a lot of strange junk in it!As soon as I linked jellybeans with “bug poop” I stopped thinking jellybeans were yummy – and swapped in thinking jellybeans are yucky!
This “Yummy to Yucky Tool” is one based in “Neuro Linguistic Programming” (NLP) – because it’s all about mindfully linking specific word and image associations to specific foods.
In my video course “Stop Emotional Eating” I share a lot of tools from “Neuro Linguistic Programming” (NLP). This NLP tool is simply one of my very varied tools.
