Hi Whole30 ladies. I wasn't sure where to post this because it's a lady thing but also a Life After Whole30/Food Freedom/Staying On Track thing. So here I am. The cravings for all things sweet are UNREAL leading up to and during my period, particularly for chocolate. I've found some higher quality ingredient cookies and chocolate that don't seem to mess me up too bad, but it's like I can't stop at one. And even when I manage to stop at one per sitting, I find myself having something every day for the entire week of my period. And THAT eventually messes me up. Plus, to me, it seems like eating well only 21 out of 28 days is not really quite the standard I am looking for, but my "worth it,"-o-meter doesn't seem to work right during this particular time of the month. Plus, these one cookies are found are ALWAYS worth it in the moment - they are so stinking good. Every. Single. Bite. Eyes closed, romantic and everything. But then a couple days in or after my period is over I look back and am like, "Wtf just happened?" Does anyone else have this struggle? Any suggestions? The tough love version is probably just, "Stop doing that," but I'm just wondering if I'm alone in this and if maybe I'm just not learning what I'm hoping to learn from my Whole30s at all. I've done 5 and they seem to have very little impact on my Sugar Dragon long-term, but according to FFF, I can't just keep going to the Whole30 every time I look at my week and go "Oops." I JUST WANT THE CYCLE TO END. To be clear: I'm looking for ways to KILL THE EVIL SUGAR DRAGON FROM HELL, not prop up my sweet tooth with healthy alternatives. Thanks.
I know GT kombucha is compliant which I am so thankful for; however, I’m wondering if I shouldn’t drink it anymore. I was never a candy/sweet eater, but I certainly enjoyed the sweet taste of sugar coffee or the fruits in my diet. If I find that I’m craving something sweet, I drink kombucha or reach for a piece of fruit. I don’t go over board. One drink/piece of fruit is simply enough to kick that craving for the taste of something sweet with a meal. With this in mind, I’m concerned that this habit is only reinforcing my desire for some form of sugar throughout the day (even if it’s compliant, like a piece of fruit). I’m on day 4. Should I eliminate anything “sweet” for a while?
You guys!!! I have a major sweet tooth and gave into my cravings with some Whole 30 ingredients, a blender and some creativity. Tell me I'm not the only one to do this because it's brilliant and delicious.... 1 banana (I used room temperature, but I'm sure frozen would work too) 3 dried prunes (no sugar added) 1 big scoop of almond butter a dash of unsweetened coconut milk (not too much liquid to keep a more soft serve consistency - add more liquid if you want a smoothie consistency) Blend everything together for a creamy, frothy and filling sweet tooth temptation killer!!
