So what causes food cravings, and how does one get rid of them?
I have talked about this before, and there is a lot of chit chat, possible causes, partial causes, but after I remove all the usual suspects, I am still left with cravings. So WTF, does no one understand these damn cravings?
The usually causes, to much carbohydrates, hyperpalatablity, endorphins, exocannopioids, have all been removed and the cravings remain. Are these just my natural state?
The net shows not much. This is a sampling of what the net shows. Blah. blah. blah. blah....
Then we have true but useless information like this http://addiction-dirkh.blogspot.ca/2014/01/drug-craving-or-how-to-be-your-own.html .
Then we have the illusion of a cure like http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/the-facts-about-food-cravings but these are carbohydrate induced cravings.

Then there are books around like
Turning to the Classics: Socrates, one interpretation--- On Justice
Indignation and appetite have to be subordinated to reason but not by force or suppression, instead, they must be shaped by education so as to be receptive to appropriate rational decisions, with spirited indignation trained to support the rule of reason rather than rebel against it, and the appetites pruned to avoid excessive indulgence going beyond what reason prescribes. The result of the other is to enslave the best part of him to the worst.
Perhaps it is back to spuds and eggs, beef and cabbage, beef and cabbage. All else is not food.
