I've read several "clean eating" books, the latest one being VB6 (Mark Bittmann), and even the most sensible and healthy-sounding diets proscribed sound like they're for people other than me....people who feel occasional cravings, but ones that can be overcome with some distractions/self-reflection/etc. The cravings I used to feel - and which I think a lot of us in this subforum feel - don't seem to be the cravings described in books such as this and others.
Does anyone else feel this way? At this point in your journey, do you ever flip through a "diet" book and realize you already know all of this stuff, but that intense cravings get in the way (for me, if i resisted a craving or tried to eat something healthy instead, I'd feel physically and mentally miserable and uncomfortable)?
I'm sure this is kinda "old hat" to most of you guys, but it's been irritating me a bit.
