The past couple days I have been craving a slice of fruit as I have not had any in a month, strictly vegetables, my special homemade yeast-free crackers, and coconut bread. Don’t get me wrong, I actually like the coconut bread, and it helps when if I start to get real hungry. However, I would never dare eat fruit in a meal, but if I decided to try eat a small piece of fruit to experiment as a snack, what are the best low sugar ones, or should I continue to try and fight the urge?? I know different sites say granny smith apples, but I am afraid to try apples because I know I have had a problem with apples all my life, or I dare only eat a couple slices. I know in the past if I did eat fruit, the best that seemed to go down in me is berries (blueberries) looking back in past food journals. Advice?March 19, 2013 at 11:21 am #101068

Fight the urge! I’ve been there and anytime I’ve cheated in the past the pleasure from eating a cheat meal never outweighed the guilt I would feel the next day. Since I got this in my head almost 4 months ago I have not cheated once.March 19, 2013 at 2:58 pm #101084

Keep fighting it! Try drinking lemon water when you want fruit. I find it helps me.March 19, 2013 at 3:24 pm #101085

IMHO, the best way to fight the craving is getting enough bacteria for your gut. It seems for me, that if the c. albicans is in its aggressive state, I tend to feel craving, endless hunger etc.March 19, 2013 at 5:09 pm #101086

I’m less ravenous when I eat sauerkraut, so Klips has a good point.March 19, 2013 at 6:00 pm #101089
yeah, klips does have a good point! I have fought the urge, it has passed; I don’t want to feel bad! I’m still early in recovery, and I know I have cheated a couple times. I am really starting to pin-point this in my head that I cannot cheat; I want to get better, so I can have a few things later in my life, and not have it bother me, but I am glad for eating better. I know this will be a lifestyle change, and I will probably always have issues, but the point is to get it under control!!!!!!! It is just so hard sometimes!March 20, 2013 at 3:56 pm #101220

fighting cravings has been the hardest part of treatment for me as i have givin in so many times u are right the guilt is so not worth it !i need to get in my head that how i feel afterward is so not worth it !
i dont think a green apple will affect u much if u have it every few days or so but if u have had a problem with them then u probably should stay awayMarch 21, 2013 at 5:06 am #101277

I ve been doin treatment for almost 4 months, I just adde green apples, one a day to keep my gut moving. No bad reaction at all. I do want a big ass chocolate pie or icecream but the cravings are better. The cravings for pasta went down, fast food cravings I don’t even think about, but pizza is still something I want. Your not alone but it gets easier. Once we beat this thing we will eat pizzas lolMarch 21, 2013 at 9:11 am #101284

Dude, I had this dream last night that I ate half of a pizza…like I folded all the pieces on top of each other and ate it all at once! Then I got *so* sick and felt greasy and terrible and thought I was going to puke…I woke up and was nauseous, LOL. It totally got rid of my pizza cravings, though!March 21, 2013 at 10:30 am #101288
Yes, it has been hard the past few days with cravings. I am not necessary craving icky, greasy things. I have just been having crunch withdrawls; I am going to make some veggie chips today or tomorrow when I get some time. I got the craving to stop, but then it came back yesterday; I just want fruit. Just berries, my favorites have always been blueberries and raspberries.
Alexalgebra, I don’t mind giving up some of the greasy things because like you said, I have gotten used to eating vegetables, and if I try a new food (not greasy) on the approved diet list, or other things similar; I know I can get the slighest reaction, even to supplements. I agree, it is just not worth it, and I am glad that I am starting to accept this new way of eating. I just want to get there where I can have a treat every once in awhile and not suffer or feel too bad. Yesterday, I was having some pretty extreme die-off though. It is weird how one day I can feel okay and another day get bad die-off.
