A wise friend once told me that carbs are a natural anti depressant for women (really!) and that's why we feel so crappy without them. When I start feeling crabby, unhappy, or just plain crave some sugar/starch that I know I shouldn't have I go in my closet and look at a pair of jeans or a skirt that I want to fit back into and ask myself "which do you want more?" Almost always, the carb loses! Stay strong ladies!!
