How to train your brain to crave healthy food

You can train yourself to crave healthy foods

Imagine yourself hanging out on the couch with your family watching football. When you begin to get hungry you crave chopped carrots, not potato chips and Doritos.

Is it a pipe dream?

Researchers say no. According to a study published in Nutrition & Diabetes, cravings for unhealthy, processed foods can be reversed. They found you can condition yourself to seek out healthy foods over months, in response to what you eat.

What does this mean to you? Stay the course. Make a commitment to preparing and eating healthy foods. Over time your body will ask you for more, and those pastries and sweets will begin to taste too rich, too sweet, even yucky.

Wouldn't that be nice?

Make it happen.
