For some people food feels like their only pleasure. This is not currently true for me, but it has been true at other times in my life. Just the thought of giving up or highly pleasurable foods can cause panic and despair. Try tapping along to release your desire for food pleasure.
Setup (Karate Chop Point) – Even though I am afraid to give up my food pleasure, I deeply and completely love and accept myself. Even though I am afraid to give up my food pleasure, I choose to feed my body with love and logic. Even though I am afraid to give up my food pleasure, I am open to feeling joy and pleasure in other ways.
