Do you find that whenever stress strikes, deadline hits, your kids misbehave or grief wallops you, you're seized by absolutely urgent, overpowering Crazy Cravings™ for easily accessible, fiber-stripped carbohydrates or other sugary, salty, fatty foods?

Then, the next thing you know, fueled by your frantic cravings, you hunt out your favorite trigger foods, which, of course, are quite easy to find.

After all, unless we live in the boonies or the outbacks, we're in the midst of a junk-food jungle, which is full of convenience stores, bakeries, and carts that sell a plethora of tempting donuts, candies, cookies, crackers, chips, and junk foods.

What's a wanna-be healthy eater to do?

And what can you do if you want to lose weight and your cravings keep derailing you?

Well, you need to learn to Calm Your Crazy Cravings, as I put it. 

Lately, I've been wracking my brain and exhaustively researchng how to help you do just that.

In fact, that's why, as you may have noticed. I haven't been posting as much lately on this Sugar Shock Blog or on my Huffington Post or Heal Your Life blogs. 

You see, I've been deep into writing and researching my third book, Calm Your Crazy Cravings (that's the wokring title).

My next book will help you finally let go of your urgent urges for unhealthy sugary, salty, fatty junk foods, or what I call nonfoods or unreal foods.

My next book, which I've been working on intensely for two years, while healing after the death of my mother, is the the follow up to my books, Sugar Shock and Beyond Sugar Shock.

Although — as I mentioned in My Carb Confession here and then later here, when I thanked Sean Croxton for inspring me to come clean –  the initial inspiration for this book grew out of my own challenging, traumatic experiences and Crazy Cravings, my next book can help millions, I believe, to rise about those incessant desires for unreal foods, which can lead you to disease and even an early death.

Anyhow, I ask you to please be patient with me a while longer, because I'm sooooooo close to finishing my book, Calm Your Crazy Cravings, and then I'll be posting lots of great tips for you.

For now, I invite you to get excited! At last, you'll get help to rise above your Crazy Cravings.

Alex-JamiesonIn the meantime, I encourage you to get valuable perspective, awesome insights and wonderful help to understand and manage your cravings from my astute colleague, Alex Jamieson.

Alex offers a different, wortehile, brilliant perspective on the subject of cravings. (Yes, our books will complement each other well.)

The empowering, personable Alex Jamieson — who I had the pleasure of meeting years ago while living in New York City and who I saw recently at an awesome event for health experts presented by cutting-edge health guru JJ Virgin —  is now gearing up for the publication of her next book, Women, Food and Desire, which comes out in January.

In fact, you  may have been one of millions, who had the pleasure of seeing her on such shows as "Oprah" or "The National Health Test with Bryant Gumbel" or in the award-winning documentary, Super Size Me.

You also can hear her inspring TedX talk here.

In fact, I'm honored to be able to present Alex as one of more than 20 experts, who will participate in my upcoming Sugar World Summit. Stay tuned for details.

In the meantime, talk to us.

I'm a former sugar-addicted journalist, who reluctantly quit sugar on doctor's orders in 1998. When all 44 of my crippling ailments vanished, I was so thrilled that I began interviewing hundreds of experts worldwide so I could give you the sour scoop about sweets. Fast forward 17 years, and I'm now author of Sugar Shock (Berkley Books, 2006) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House, 2012). The latter gives you a simple, proven plan to easily, effortlessly squash your sugar habit. I'm also a motivational speaker, a certified life coach, a certified health coach, frequent media guest, and Gab with the Gurus host. I'm now planning the first first Sugar World Summit and I'm finishing writing my next book, Crush Your Crazy Carb Cravings™, which will help you easily escape your must-have-junk-food moments.

  1. I have found when I am processing emotional stress .. my carb cravings kick in and I start going through the CFA drive thru for waffle fries .. or pick up a bag of one of the following or sometimes I get all 3 bags .. which then I know .. my carb craving is out of control: Jalapeño pretzels bits or jalapeno Cheetos or even the flaming hot Cheetos Or waffle fries. Since reading Sugar Shock I walked away from sweets and sugar and sweeteners as of January 19, 2013 .. however carbs … are still my weakness and my go to stress food .. :o( … I am working to release the craving .. thank goodness my spicy salty carb craving is not part of my daily life .. but it is there and comes to the surface during emotional times ..

    Now, my heart goes out to you in dealing with what I call those Crazy Carb Cravings™, which can hit bigtime when you’re under stress.
    Keep checking back here, because I’ll be posting more cool tools to deal with those Crazy Carb Cravings.
    Have you tried meditating, by the way? Many find that quite calming.

  3. I know I need to kick the sugar habit but I get very anxious every time I toy with the idea. A little of my story, as far back as I can remember I have could never get enough of the sugar treats especially ice cream. There was some stress in my family and I can remember back to when I was 5 yo having that emotional tie to treats, and that was 50 years ago . Also, I have struggled with my weight over the years. When beginning a diet plan I can go months on end without indulging in treats (thinking then I have mastered the problem) And then I get close to my goal and I fool myself into thinking a little taste will be ok and before you know it I am back to non-stop thinking about the treats and never getting enough. I know I need to conquer this and just have so much fear about even beginning. I use sugary treats (with also leads to anything else that is junk) to express excitement, sadness, stress, … you name it. Where should I start?

  4. My heart goes out to you, Theresa. I applaud you for your courage.
