What are Food Discipline lessons™ are one of the five principles of The Merisoiu Technique? They are the mindset behind nutrition. They change the way you look at food, your relationship with food.

Lesson 1 – Eat high quality when craving otherwise

When you crave sweets or unhealthy snacks and foods think whether you have actually eaten a proper meal that day. Proper as in quality and quantity.

So there is something missing when you crave. You must think, what is missing? Is it quality food, quantity, or maybe an element that I need, like replacing ice cream with a teaspoon of honey for example, or maybe is the milk. What is it? Take time to think and respond rather than react.

Many times we crave those things because we are actually hungry. Once you eat a proper meal you may find that you don’t crave them anymore.

Eat high quality food when you crave unhealthy options.
