When I feel deprived I allow myself to indulge in the foods I can have. One of the difficult things about the diet for me has been alcohol. I’m very social and lots of social situation involve alcohol so what I do is take a couple bottles of home-made water kefir to events like dinner parties and drink it out of a wine glass. It’s silly but sometimes I feel a bit tipsy. Same with coffee, I miss it but I drink chicory coffee with stevia and coconut cream and it really has replaced my morning routine of needing coffee before I do anything. I’ll put lots of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and stevia in the coconut bread if I’m feeling deprived of desserts. Sometimes I eat way more than I need and I’ll feel a bit guilty but its all stuff that we are allowed… And plus I’ve lost a lot of weight on the diet. I never thought I could be so restrained with all the foods I loved before but I really have just found replacements. Today I was mostly at home and I ate sooo much but all within the diet. Hope this helps.
