Shitty Diet/Junk Food Addiction by Marc Forgione - Mon, 20 Mar 2017 20:01:46 EST ID:76vI5oTQ No.151420 Ignore Report Quick Reply

So, I have a really shitty diet. I get big bags of chips almost every day and drink 4-5 cans of pop a day, plus chocolate and ice cream very frequently. It's also non uncommon for me to eat fast food for dinner, and I usually only make extremely processed frozen food like jalapeno poppers and mozzarella sticks. I feel like shit all the time, but it's really hard to break this habit.

I know a lot of it is psychological, but I am wondering if there are any types of healthy foods that can help curb cravings of junk food or that can replace them? I get altogether too much sugar and salt in my diet and need to start eating better but I want to give my brain the illusion that it's still getting the things it wants without further poisoning my body.

tldr I need to kick my terrible junk food habits, what kinds of foods can I eat that will help curb cravings or replace bad food?

you gotta taper like its a drug. start by trying to choose just one day, or one specific time of the day, where you eat healthy food. so maybe tuesdays, or your breakfasts. just pick a small part of your total diet and try to change it. then after some time of making that habit, try to up it to more, until the junk food becomes an occasional treat. its like the "couch to 5k" program, the first thing is just taking some small walks to start getting used to the change. they dont say to start running on day 1. just feel it out and start with a minor change

Just cutting out the soda would be a lot better, and cut out a lot of calories.
I'd recommend cutting out either all the sodas or gradually switching to something else.
You could try pic related, it's what I use for caffeine now. I just occasionally have soda now, instead of all the time like in the past.

and if you still crave the carbonation, there are these drinks pic related that are really tastey and no calories.

Mio Energy is my jam. Its my go-juice at work, too. Since I can carry it covertly in my pocket and discreetly add it to my water whenever I'm starting to feel a little haggared. It also tastes pretty good, depending on the flavor. Black Cherry, Acai Berry Blast, and Strawberry Pineapple Smash taste good. While the Green Thunder tastes like shit. It tastes almost exactly like this liquid antibiotic I had to take as a kid. Avoid the green one. Plus you don't crash with sugar free energy drinks, and the buzz feels cleaner and lasts a lot longer.

Yeah the buzz is pretty intense. For a while when I first was taking it, it almost felt like I was taking amphetamines. It's just cleaner without all that sugar and whatnot.
