    Terry, VP Nutrition Facts

    That's interesting. I've read studies about how visualization helps folks do what they're visualizing. This is the first one I've seen stating the same technique can help you *not* do something. But I guess it makes sense. If you've imagined eating candy so many times then maybe you start to feel satisfied. I suppose it could have the opposite effect too though for someone who's really addicted to candy and the more they think about it the more they want it. I notice obese people tend to talk about food a lot.


    This is so awesome. I am definitely saving this post and forwarding to some people.
    Im gonna try it and if it works, Im gonna have my clients try it.

    Thanks again.
