This is a simple tapping script where we’ll tap only on the physical craving for French fries themselves. We won’t be tapping on emotional events.
If you have any emotional events around eating French fries, I recommend you use one of the other tapping scripts in Weeks 1 and 2, such as the script for bread and baked goods or the script for ice cream and desserts, and focus on emotional events in addition to using this French fry script.
We’ll begin by tapping our karate-chop point and imagining a delicious bowl of French fries. What’s your degree of craving on a scale of 0 to 10, with 10 being the most possible craving and 0 being no craving at all? Write down your number.
Keep tapping your karate-chop point and repeat after me.

What number are you? The chances are you’ve gone way down from a high number to a low number. Write your number down. Remember, you can tap whenever you need to to reduce your cravings for French fries or any other food.
