Wow, yesterday I suffered through some pretty serious carb cravings. I did not succumb, but I did drink a diet A&W root beer. My wife has been telling me I drink too much diet soda, and I agree, so I haven't had one in a week, since March 4. I've been drinking water instead. However, the diet root beer helped a lot. She also bought some raspberries, which are good and high fiber/low carb, so I made some whipping cream and sweetened it with sucralose (0 carbs) and had raspberries and cream. I also made sure to eat two salads as well (one for lunch and one for dinner). That satisfied the cravings and I still consumed fewer than 20 grams of carbs today.
Long term, I feel like I need to break my cravings for carbs, especially for sweets. They tell me it can happen. But I am taking baby steps in this process and right now I needed the crutch afforded by the diet A&W.
