Atkins - Every night, I eat entire loaves of bread in my dreams

Isn't that weird? Then I feel terrible, in my dream, about going off plan in such a tremendous way. Anyone else have recurring dreams of cheating?

Hahaha I go through this too! Only, for me, I'm sitting at Tim Horton's eating an entire box of donuts. Then I wake up with a horrible sinking feeling like "omg what have I done?!", followed by a wave of relief when I realise it was all just a dream. But loaves of bread eh, you would think you'd dream about something a little yummier!

When I had my gastric bypass I dreamed of food all the time. It never happened on Atkins though and Im really hoping it wont happen...makes me crave foods I shouldnt be eating.

I do this almost every night when I go to bed still a little (or a lot) hungry! But I'm with Ramra. I never choose loaves of bread. Ice cream. Fresh-baked cookies. Donuts. These are my dream drugs of choice.

Hahaha yes, this happens to me too. It is usually tiramisu, bakalava, donuts, chips, or bread. Those dreams feel so real too! I wake up and realize that luckily it was only a dream hah

My mom is a confectioner and a chocolatier. Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting at her table and I'm eating her truffles and chocolate sea salt Carmel's one after another until I realize they are all gone and she comes out of the shoppe and screams at me for eating all her product. I wake up so received, but I swear, I can taste it in my dreams and it makes me wonder if my pancreas releases insulin in anticipation of a sugar rush...

This is so funny! The night after my first day in induction I dreamt of food ALL night long...I was eating burgers and fries and all kinds of delicious carbs...then I freaked out and realized I was messing up my diet so (instantly) I replaced the buns with lettuce and the fries with a huge salad...then I woke up and was super glad it was just a dream...:D

I've had plenty of guilty eating dreams- usually I'm in a candy store (and sometimes I have to steal the candy to eat it!).

Ghost, you're a rock star! I would weigh 2,000 pounds if my mom were a chocolatier/confectioner. No doubt about it.

LOL. When I first went gluten free I used to dream I was being chased by cupcakes. Also that I'd mindlessly take a handful of snacks from a bowl at a party and would have to spit them out. I attributed them to anxiety that I would accidentally make a mistake and eat something with gluten.
