This is kind of negative, but when I’m feeling really deprived and feeling tempted, I remind myself that the food I want to eat is poison to me. I envision it as literally killing me if I eat it. Kind of harsh, but it works. After discovering I had food allergies to corn, soy and gluten a year ago, I’ve been hardcore at avoiding all of these. So many of my problems cleared up. Sugar is the last and hardest thing to give up but after the first few days its gotten so I don’t crave it anymore. I used to think about my next fix. I was seriously a junkie. Now I have to figure out what will keep me full. I feel famished even after eating a huge green salad, brown rice and chicken. I still haven’t figured that one out yet. I’ve always had trouble feeling full without carbs and sugar. Any thoughts on that?
Glad you all are here. My hubby is fantastic, but he’s got one of those super immune systems. Eats whatever he wants, never gets sick and stays thin. So it’s a little rough when I’ve had so many issues and he’s eating a tub of cookies.
