I have continued to carry on listening to my chocpod every night just as I am going to sleep, most nights I am asleep before it even finishes. To be honest I have even shocked myself that I actually remember to listen to it, last night my phone had died and an attack of guilt made me download it to my laptop so I could listen to it.
There has been a distinct lack of chocolate in my life this week. Now don't get me wrong I have actually had chocolate almost every day but........ not for breakfast, also not on my break at work and most importantly not in the quantity I did pre-chocpod.
Now I have noticed a massive reduction in my chocolate cravings but also also in my actual food choices ie swapping ready made sandwiches, fizzy pop, chocolate, crisps etc in work to healthier choices like homemade sandwiches, fruit and water but......... I have had the worst cravings for salty foods. Seriously, for about 3-4 days I was gorging on bacon butties, and ready salted crisps. I was genuinely worried that I was swapping one food craving for another and that couldn't be healthy could it? Luckily the cravings wore off after a few days but it did get me thinking would this/could this actually happen? I hope not and looking back now I doubt it, maybe it was my body's way of starting to tackle the chocolate addiction (yes I do mean addiction) but whatever it was it wasn't permanent.
I haven't weighed myself or measured so I can't comment on whether or not it has actually helped me to lose weight but regardless so far I am loving the changes it is helping me to make on a daily basis, being able to think more clearly when it comes making wiser food choices and hopefully this will show soon in some measurable results.
Now if only there was a slimpod that could make me want to do housework that would be impressive!
