I am a long-time sweet hog. I eat and crave sweets, and no matter how much I clean up my diet I just have to have my chocolate and still occasionally bake.
I've been eating healthier for over a year. I've tried several "diets" but what works for me is just trying to make good choices as often as I can stand it. I love bad foods, but I'm starting to love good foods too, so I'm slowly tipping the balance towards better and better eating.
Anyways - I recently had some Serious cravings. I made brownies for the first time in months, ate them all (not in one sitting of course). It was heaven. Then I got a cake craving. I tried eating some other sweets that I had on-hand (ice cream, chocolate bars) but nothing satisfied me, so I went out and bought cake mix and icing.
Eating one piece of that cake made me want to throw up. Its a good cake, so I tried again and felt sick again. And of course this morning I figured its still a good cake, so I ate it for breakfast - I feel so gross and sick to my stomach....
All I want right now is a salad. As soon as my belly feels better I'm going to throw that cake away and eat something healthy.
Anyways - I wanted to rant, and I wanted to know if anyone else feels the same? I used to eat cake and sweets fine, but now my mind craves them and my body feels gross after eating them... Maybe I'm not used to having that much sugar anymore?
