Just smelling it, watching other people eat it or, worse, talking to a prospective client while they were chewing a Dove bar drove me crazy. I had to leave the building a few times and drank a lot more coffee than I should have. The last day I brought two restricted bars and ate them. Up until a few weeks ago none of this would have bothered me. Where the heck did that come from?!?
I have 30 lbs to go. I thought I was just going to be able to power my way through to goal. It's alarming because I thought I had conquered the feeling of wanting, wanting, wanting a particular food.
I'm really good at planning my meals and making sure I have my food with me for the day. I don't have the challenges of some IP'ers as I can eat all of the IP choices, and I make an effort to cook creatively and eat a lot of variety in my main meal. I actually think most of the IP foods are quite good, so I can't blame it on boredom.
I feel like something else is going on. I can't spend the rest of my life running away from my trigger foods -- meaning if I have it around me or other people are enjoying it, I want to be ok.
Lisa, would you please post the info on the supplements? I think this is such a big issue for all of us. Thanks.
I feel like it would be giving medical advice b/c I'm learning from naturopathic physicians
Do some reading about taking tyrosine and 5htp together.
