i can sympathize !I do the same thing ,i start the diet and do it for 2 days and then binge on sugar !I told myself id start the diet when my supplements came or after new years and eat more than what i normally would in carbs and sugar !I feel guilty and the go back to the diet and reapeat the binge ! i bought l glutamate as many say it helps with cravings ,u can try this also ,i cant say if it works as i just started to take it today but many say it helps .
i thought about trying to do it gradually and dont think its a problem ,i think anything that will help break our sugar addiction is worth trying and if t means eating a sweet potato or green apple instead of a candy bar to just get used to the change thats ok .
how ever this will probably lengthen our recovery than if we went cold turkey and we may have a hard time giving up the apple also but i am doing it this way .
