When I was on a fat loss protocol and still working in a restaurant some years ago, I thought about all the yummy and indulgent restaurant foods I was missing while serving it to others.
When I was tempted or thinking of my next fantasy meal too much, I clenched my fists together and squeezed as tight as I could. Then I closed my eyes and said quietly to myself, “I love myself more than I love this food.” I said it ten times with fists clenched the whole time. When I released my fists, the thoughts of the food dissipated. I was able to bounce back in the present moment and get back to work, serving others.
