Angry ARGH! Mondays are hard (for me tht is)

Today I just have the munchies good grief. After a great sunday today is not. I am thinking maybe I should have some celery with WF Pbutter and cinnamon maybe hot tea and gum.

Other than the above how can I kick the munchies monster that hits

Salad!!!!

I am pretty sensitive to coffee, so a strong cup of coffee will curb my appetite. If that fails I have lettuce with 2 hard boiled egg whites to hold me over.

Oddly enough, I f I get a case of the munchies, I'll brush my teeth. NOTHING sounds yummy after I brush my teeth!

I had to learn the difference between "true hunger" and just wanting to eat.

If I'm truly hungry, lettuce will help. If I just want to eat, it isn't usually lettuce I'm looking for. Teaching myself to not eat everytime I get the munchies was something I worked on and I hope it will pay off in maintenance.

I've struggled through more than one day drinking herbal tea & wishing the time would go faster! I've learned the more I feed the munchies, the more they want to be fed.

And there is this: Nobody ever starved to death without food between lunch and dinner.

I agree. I have some tea with cinnamon in it and I am going to drink that and hope that will kick it. I think my mouth is bored.

Lately when I have been getting the munchies and want to cheat I go with pickles or go to the gym and workout instead.

Yes! This!

I sometimes think we've been conditioned as a society, mostly through advertising, to believe that we have to give in when we get different signals, i.e. the munches. I know how it feels, but when I don't give in to that false sense, I feel like a million dollars! Giving in sets the scene for more giving in. Be strong!

I am with you to an extent, although I am not craving anything specific. I am just hungry! I have not been this hungry at all on the plan. Weird. Hoping it passes soon, and having an extra packet to help curb it when I need to. Maybe I will try the tea with cinnamon.

Hope your munchies leave you alone soon!
