It is now common knowledge that increasing green vegetable intake helps to reduce food cravings over time. What is less known, (and this idea is still BITTERLY resisted by many in the "traditional" nutrition world) is that removing certain foods from your diet for a short period of time can yield tremendous benefits.
But we know that many people just don't believe this. In fact, the mom of a good friend of mine called her and asked if she had seen the JJ Virgin PBS special recently. Her mom said something to the effect of "she is totally full of it, no way this is true."
We are bringing this objection to the forefront here because for so many people this is 100% true for them. And for people who suffer from auto-immune conditions, the results from just BEING OPEN to this idea have been life altering.
Anyway, we just wanted to preface this discussion of food cravings so that you'd have a better understanding of why this is not something you have commonly heard!
"On a previous cleanse Q & A, JJ stated that the more we crave the highly inflammatory foods, the more we needed to stay away from it. For me, this is hands down PEANUTS!
Everyone has something going on here to SOME extent. A lot of the foods we commonly eat are not broken down well, ends up in the bloodstream often because of the compromised gut- and this creates reaction.
When you first pull this out, you are going to crave them. It only lasts 3-7 days. This is a GREAT thing. This is not like sugar or carb cravings- you can really "muscle through"
And then, with some distance, these foods often don't taste good any more!! This is a HUGE long term benefit. People are often shocked when they get some distance, and then go back.
We kick ourselves in the butts about discipline and willpower, but really have no idea about how many of these foods out there are really designed to trigger these cravings.
