Ep #9 Controlling Urges and Cravings

Learning to manage urges and food cravings is essential to lose weight and prevent weight-related disease. In this podcast, Dr. Vaughn discusses managing the strong desires or impulses to eat foods that don’t serve the body. She introduces the idea of recognizing and validating the urge without acting upon or complying to the urge. In addition, Dr. Vaughn recommends using the Urge Pad as a tool for managing unproductive thoughts and feelings that often undermine weight loss efforts.
