I had someone write to me and ask, “Why do I crave chips, soda, pizza, burgers, and junk like that?”
One of the key reasons people like junk is because they develop a taste for it. Their body gets used to certain foods. There are multiple mechanisms involved in stimulating the appetite, but it’s like anything. It’s all about habits.
I’ve said this many times; people don’t decide on their future, their habits do. If you regularly eat fast food, you’re going to develop a taste for that kind of meal. Over time, it’s going to be harder and harder to break the habit.
It’s like tobacco. Once you develop a taste for cigarettes, it’s tough to stop smoking. Years ago, I smoked a lot and ate a lot of junk food. Do I like junk food? Not anymore. I was highly stressed at one stage in my life. The higher the stress, the more cortisol in the bloodstream, and the more salt, sugar, and fat cravings emerge.
Once you get a taste for high salt, you’ll find it difficult to break that taste. Slowly, but surely, when you start incorporating fresh ingredients into your diet, the craving for junk food will diminish.

I now love sour things and bitter foods like grapefruit. Don’t let other people tell you what you should eat. Eat when you want to eat. But the trick is to very slowly wean yourself off the junk and replace it with fresh food.
For example, if you like French fries, try substituting olives instead. Olives will undoubtedly answer your salt craving. If you have powerful salt cravings, you may have an element of adrenal fatigue. Or you may be highly stressed.
If you have blood sugar levels that go up and down, adrenal dysfunction may be at play. Once you start understanding the concepts of eating good food, sleeping properly, getting your emotions under control, and living a healthy lifestyle, your cravings will improve immensely.
When you have been eating junk food for a while, the bacteria in your gut becomes “junky,” too. The type of bacteria you have can influence your cravings. Scientists are now working out that bacteria often call the shots.
If you want to stop your cravings, you need to fix up your gut flora. I suggest using a supplement like CanXida Remove to get the gut clean and tidied up a bit. Once you do that, you”ll find it easier to lose weight. You’ll find it easier to resist your cravings.
The “bad” bugs gave up on me a long time ago. And guess what I crave?
Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, a nice piece of fish, organic chicken, and free-range eggs. That can be true for you as well.
