MADISON (WMSN) -- It may seem like food that's bad for you is always within an arm's reach.
A Madison doctor shows how you can train your body to crave healthier foods.
"Good foods, healthy foods, aren't necessarily "sexy" you know," said Dr. Susan Isensee, with the Dean Clinic Comprehensive Weight Management Program.
Doctor Isensee tries a different angle to get her patients to crave healthy foods. At Dean Clinic's Comprehensive Weight Management Program, she shows what unhealthy foods, like sweets, do to your body.
"Often times [they] have empty calories and while your brain may crave them, they're not doing enough to meet your body's nutritional needs," said Dr. Isensee.
About how long will it take to change the habits that may have been ingrained in you since you were little? The doctor says for the average adult, about six weeks.
She says the biggest impact to her patients is when they write down everything they eat.
"It's absolutely your brain what you're doing. So if you're not record keeping, you're lying to yourself," said Dr. Isensee.
Other ways to kick the habit - get unhealthy foods out of your house and keep health snacks on you instead at all times.
She says when you sit down for a meal, eat the healthiest foods on your plate, first.
"I make sure I eat my meal before I do my craved foods," said Dr. Isensee.
"Remember the scale is not your enemy. If you've been doing the right thing the scale should go down and your waste measurements and hip measurements should go down also," said Dr. Isensee.
