As soon as I began eating these jellybeans, I’d become deaf to my inner voice’s warnings:
“Yo! Karen! Enough! You’re full! The bag’s nearly empty! STOP!!!!!”
I used to call these jellybeans my “Kryptobite” – because a few bites worked like Kryptonite on me – rendering me powerless over my cravings.
We all have our “Kryptobite” foods! Perhaps yours is chocolate, cake, candy bars, pizza, cheese, ice cream, french fries, chips, cupcakes, donuts…?Happily I found a way to turn up my willpower for jellybeans, and turn down my cravings (Note: This is an NLP tool I share in my groundbreaking DO IT PROGRAM.)
I discovered the following via Google:
JELLY BEANS, CANDY CORN AND GLAZED CANDIES ARE ALL COVERED IN “SHELLAC” AND/OR “CONFECTIONER’S GLAZE” – WHICH ARE EACH CODE NAMES FOR “BUG EXCRETIONS.”
Shellac makes things nice and shiny. But the ingredients in the shellac on your candy is not so nice. It’s a “secretion” from a Thailand insect, a beetle called “Kerria laca.” Yes, that’s true! And I’m even wording it nicely.
As soon as I linked jellybeans with “bug poop” my desire for these Kryptobites completely faded away. I stopped thinking jellybeans were yummy – and swapped in thinking jellybeans are yucky!
This “Yummy to Yucky Tool” is one based in “Neuro Linguistic Programming” (NLP) – because it’s all about mindfully linking specific word associations to specific foods. In my DO IT PROGRAM I share a lot of tools from “Neuro Linguistic Programming” (NLP).
