Chocolate Cravings Gone With EFT Tapping Therapy Learnt During EFT Practitioner Training

Eliminate Cravings With EFT Tapping

Overcoming Chocolate Cravings With EFT Tapping

In this testimonial, you will learn how Emma Voss conquered her food cravings one by one through Emotional Freedom Techniques. She attended EFT Practitioner Training every year and achieved her desired shape.

Ever wondered why you get that insatiable urge to have a Belgian dark chocolate cake in the middle of nowhere on a regular day? One moment, you’re simply sitting and working in your office after lunch, the next, you find yourself ensnared with desires.

Before you even realize you’re standing next to the refrigerator, binging on chocolates and other sugary treats. These kinds of food cravings can be both physiological and psychological.

Business owner Emma Voss managed to grab her cravings by the scruff of the neck. She talks about her victory over her chocolate cravings after attending EFT Practitioner Training in the UK in 2011.

I learned a lot at the EFT training program and I feel very positive. On the first day of the training itself, I felt in control over my chocolate cravings. My first ever day without chocolates was effortless. I did all my work without getting clobbered by my urges. I never thought I could ever achieve that in a single day

Emma returned for the EFT Practitioner Training in 2012 and this time she even won over her biscuit cravings. She came back for the training in 2013 when she reported that her body was in better shape.


Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT): EFT Tapping to overcome chocolate cravings. 

Step 1:

First, Use EFT Tapping On What It Feels Like To Feel The Cravings

Explore the physical sensations in the body associated with cravings and use the physical tension tapping process to reduce the sensations.

Then use the EFT Tapping Points Process taught in detail during EFT Practitioner Training Online. 


To get started, begin by investigating the physical nature of cravings

Connect with the cravings and notice where you feel them in the body. Then use the EFT Tapping for Physical Tension taught in detail during the EFT Practitioner Training to clear the surface feelings and feel calmer. 

Briefly, you can begin by asking yourself the following questions to explore further:

  • Where in the body do you experience the cravings?
  • What is the colour, texture, size, shape of the cravings in the body?
  • What are the sensations like? For example, rough or smooth


Then measure the level of cravings by asking: 

"What number is the craving at, where 10 is really high and 1 is not high at all." Just go with whatever comes up spontaneously, without thinking too much about it. 


Begin by Tapping on the Karate Chop or Side of the Hand EFT Tapping Points: 

"Even though I feel the craving to eat a chocolate and I feel it in my mouth and it's at a number 6 and it's red in colour and it feels smooth, I deeply and completely love and accept myself." (Repeat 3 times).


Then Tap on the facial and upper body EFT Tapping Points using these phrases:

  • Eyebrow: This craving...
  • side Of the Eye: So much craving...
  • Under the eye: Craving in my mouth...
  • Under the nose: It's a red colour...
  • Chin: At a number 6...
  • Collarbone: So smooth...
  • Under the arm: This craving...
  • Thumb: I feel it in my mouth...
  • Index Finger: So tempting...
  • Middle Finger: Really tempting...
  • Little Finger: The colour red...


Close the sequence by coming back to the EFT Karate Chop Tapping Points and repeat once: 

"Even though I feel the craving to eat a chocolate and I feel it in my mouth and it's at a number 6 and it's red in colour and it feels smooth, I deeply and completely love and accept myself."



Take a gentle breath in and out and take a sip of water.



At the end of the EFT Tapping, you can ask yourself the following questions:

  • What number is the craving at now?
  • What happened?
  • How does it make you feel?

You can repeat this process by going back to Step 1 if you feel like the number could come down a little more.

Step 2:

Then Discover Past Experiences Of Feeling The Cravings And Clear Them 

Explore memories related to the physical tension and use the Tell the Story & the Movie Technique to clear it. 

To uncover the memories linked to cravings, you can ask questions like:

  • When have you felt these sensations before?
  • What do these sensations remind you of?
  • When did the sensations start? What happened?
  • Was there ever a time when you did not experience these symptoms?
  • What can trigger and bring on the symptoms?

Identify past events linked to the feeling of craving and resolve it with the help of tapping therapy.

You can ask the following questions:

  • When have you felt a craving before?
  • What happens to trigger the craving?
  • Who or what triggers the craving?

These questions will identify your past experiences associated with cravings. 

Step 3:

Explore Any Limiting Beliefs That Prevented You From overcoming cravings

Limiting beliefs are thoughts that can be conscious or unconscious and can end up becoming responsible for self-sabotage, procrastination and low self-esteem, in an individual.

For cravings, first, uncover the limiting beliefs which can either be at the surface level or associated with the deeper root memories. Then shift them from stressful to empowering. For example, 

  •  “Something bad is going to happen” to “Everything is going to be OK"
  • "It not safe" to "I am safe now"

Step 4:

Close With Positive EFT Tapping to overcome cravings:

Examples of a positive tapping sequence might be:

  • “Even though I felt tempted, now, I am open to feeling confident about overcoming the cravings.”
  • “Even though I had these cravings, now, I open myself to the possibility of having no cravings and being healthy."

Many people seek comfort in their food. After a terrible day, they turn to their favourite food to clear their head. This temporary comfort turns into cravings.

Instead of choosing short-term comfort, one should get to the cause and resolve it. However, we have self-doubt and limiting beliefs that prevent us from looking within ourselves.

Emotional Freedom Techniques eliminates those limiting beliefs and helps us get to the root cause. This way we can deal with our emotions and welcome peace in our life, that too, without gaining extra pounds!
