How do u go about the 'sweets' cravings? its easy for me to steer away from fried foods..greasy and salty foods..its the sugar cravings i have. i have been doing well avoiding them since i've started this diet but gees the temptations there! and with children, i need to have some 'junk' in the house for them (not heaps though, and have stocked up more with fruit).
Buying my wholemeal bread from the Bakery is the hardest..i see my biggest craver everytime i go there..pastries! my fav being the custard puffs (that flakey pastry with jam, custard & cream inside with icing on the top) ..mmm love them..and apple pies with cream....so hard to say no to them..but have been.
And then theres the chocolate craving. I have none in the house but i will stress out about not finding any chocolate when i crave for it! Its like taking your cigarettes away (which i haven't smoked for years and years,but i remember the feeling.. and its how i got fat in the firstplace from giving up).
How long will it take for these crazy cravings to pass....
How do you cope with these sugar cravings? What can u have to replace them?
