<sigh> does it help that you're not alone in this???? hmmm. didn't think so.

the bottom line answer is: just stop eating them!!!! sounds simple, doesn't it. it's not that easy..

check out the low carb section of the forum. and some in the maintenance forum, and the ladies who lift. and the weight loss surgery section. and just about every other forum around here!!!! there is a whole lot of wisdom, and you're more than welcome to post anywhere that strikes your fancy.

for me... pretzels are evil. i walk around the office taking routes to avoid them. i talk to them and tell them to leave me alone. i knit. drink warm tea. talk to myself. all kinds of things.. oh. and i make sure i never get REALLY hungry.

nice to meet you!!!!

Hi - I have been terrorized by cravings all my life. Atkins and just doing low carb did not help me. I am trying the carbohydrate addicts diet now. Day 3, and I have to say I am cautiously optomistic. No cravings today! Would love others to chat about the diet and share successes, etc. Let me know if you try it and if it helps you too!

How true! It is VERY difficult to combat those cravings, isn't it. but jiffypop is right, it does help if you can just not have them. Or at the very least, if you have to have bread, make it a whole grain. And it does get a little easier, once you don't have them as much.

We used to have a starch (pasta, rice, potatoes) every night, but have stopped. I thought I would die (well, you know) but we have adjusted. At supper, you can try filling up with a huge green salad, and veggies (but NOT corn or peas).

I also used to think that I just absolutely could not have my morning coffee without a starchy thing with it, such as toast or bagel. But I tried it, and behold, the coffee still tasted good.

Not very helpful but yes, we all fight it. I wish you the best!
