View Full Version : Sheesh, yesterday was rough

Man I wanted sugar so badly yesterday. I finally broke down and ate 3 flat bread crackers-- I usually avoid anything so carby. They didn't help, and the sugar was just calling my name from morning to night. Anyway, today is another day and hopefully it will be a better one.

I'm going to cut way back on the diet soda today, just have a glass in the evening. I think maybe that will help. I wonder if the culprit of these cravings could be that I still do have some sugar in my diet. I do eat yogurt, which has some sugar, although it's definitely not a "go to" food for me. I only eat it a few times a week. Also my calcium chews have sugar (I hate taking pills), and when I eat oatmeal, which is about once every 3 weeks, I do put a bit of brown sugar in it. Those are the only processed sugars I eat, could they be keeping my cravings alive?

We've all been there, I have terrible mid-afternoon snack attacks that I don't know what to do about. The only advice I can give you is to cut out those diet sodas, they made my sugar cravings skyrocket when I was on them. Even after you stop it will get worse before it gets better but it's a major step in trying to control your sugar cravings in the long run. You do not want to be faced with a sugar attack everyday for the rest of your life!

You know, sometimes I think we just CRAVE things. It may be something in our diets, or our hormones, or the weather, or...who knows! But :bravo: on getting through without giving into the sweet stuff, and I hope today is better for you!
