Chela, this is how P1 feels...for at least 3 days and no more than 5, until you've detoxed. It's hard, but you can make it...just much as you are wanting those sweets, that's how badly you are addicted to the "sugar drug" (perfect way to describe it!).

Chew SF gum, have a sweet treat (don't go over 75 cals, though!), take a bubble bath, read a book, call a friend, find something to do with your mouth and hands...whatever it takes to get you through this. You'll make it, and then you won't ever feel this way! It's SO worth it, I promise!!!! :hug:

Remember to eat legumes and have the allowance for dairy. That definitely helps.
