Chocolate cravings have their root in childhood poverty

Hi Everyone,

A high percentage of people who use EFT for immediate cravings (e.g. chocolate, cigarettes, etc.) achieve success. Those that don't usually have an emotional issue attached to the craving that needs to be addressed before the cravings can be diminished. Sergio Lizarraga from Mexico illustrates this nicely with his brief article.

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary...

I have a friend who was struggling with her weight issues.  I introduced her to a basic routine of EFT which she was using in order to eliminate her chocolate cravings, which were the major contributor to her overweight problem.  Even though she did tapping on chocolate cravings directly, it did not help at all.  We talked about it later on, and I started asking her questions on why she had the cravings now.  She then told me about her childhood in poverty, and that she could not have candies or chocolates then.  Now that she is an adult she wants to have those chocolates she could not have as a child.  I suggested her tapping on

Even though I could not have a chocolate when I was a child...

Even though I wanted a chocolate when I was a child...

Three weeks later she contacted me again very happy.  She says that by doing the tapping in this way her craving totally disappeared.  Now she is losing weight and feeling much better.  Needless to say she is using EFT now for a lot of issues in her life and for her family as well.

Something interesting to mention here - I have never met my friend in person.  We got in touch through an Spanish EFT webpage that I own.  All the conversations and ideas shared have been done through instant messenger and emails!

Best wishes
