I don't have the answer to where to find the alternatives you are asking about, but have you seen this post by MTDebster921 (Deb) today in the Losers and Friends thread -

It's been a couple of weeks since I have posted, but have been lurking some. I have been really trying to figure out why I am having such a hard time losing any more weight and also why my starch cravings are totally out of control, even during and after TO. I read an article in a magazine that got me doing some searching on the net. Seems my yeast growth in my body was out of balance and sent me running for the starches. I talked with my Dr. about it and she agreed with me. So hopefully I have that beast under control, this last week, I haven't had any starch cravings and have actually had a day where I even missed one, and the scale is moving downward again. Something to look into if you are having out of control starch/carb cravings.
