Just how do you resist that craving for coffee? (4)

Sprouty Mighty Life Force
to tackle coffee cravings ^^
Now that we understand
the potential adverse effects of coffee,
justification of reduced coffee intake in our daily diet
is now easier.

There are a few strategies
that we may adopt
to put what we have learnt into real action:

Strategy A:
Building Life Force

A lot of people has problems of
craving for certain foods
is because the lack of life force.

Life force is a collective term
for energies required by the body
to coordinate metabolism of the body.

One can be well nourished
by proteins, carbohydrates and fats
which are all macronutrients;
at the same time,
be mal-nourished in
vitamins and minerals (micronutrients)
which are key elements to life force.

In other words,
when a person could not get enough of
vitamins (especially Vit-B) and minerals,
due to multiple reasons
(mainly due to non-organic foods, refined foods and selective diet)
he/she will be deprived of life force.

Lacking of life force
leads to fatique, lethargic, depression and low spirit
which in turn demands the body
to crave for quick and temporary boost of energy
from high fat, high protein, high sugar content food
as well as stimulants like
coffee, chocolates and even drugs...

So in order to resist cravings
for coffee, chocolates and many other junk foods,
the most thorough solution
is to take in foods rich in vitamin B and minerals
to render cravings totally irrelevant!

Foods which are rich
in Vit Bs and minerals (high in life force) includes:

All root vegetables
e.g. sweet potato, sengkuang, huai-shan, yam, tapioca, beetroot, carrots....

All whole grains
e.g. brown rice, millet, quinoa, amaranth seeds, buckwheat..

All sprouts
e.g. mung bean sprouts, sunflower sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, dow-miao..

If we incorporate those Life Force foods
in our diet daily,
when our body gradually strengthens,
we will not be carried away by
junk foods, stimulants and drugs
especially coffee ^.^

The above strategy is
the fundamental and reliable approach
to cure coffee cravings.
But it may take some time to bring back the life force.

In the next blog post,
we shall look into some
short term remedies to
trick ourselves away from coffee cravings =)
