http://www.dietdoctor.com/sugar-crash-new-irish-sugar-documentary Just shy of an hour ... documentary about the ramifications of sugar in our diets. Has an Irish focus, but obviously there's a message here for all of us. @jmcbn have you had to deal with this "sugar culture" they mention?
So I'm having this persisting problem where all the foods I am eating are Whole30 approved, high quality and satiating but..... When I get home at night after a 12 hour shift and my boyfriend is working night shift, the apartment is empty of witnesses except for my 9 lb. pup who is more than happy to partake in some (healthy) snacking with me. I am so bored and lonely that I turn the TV on to get rid of the quiet. As soon as the TV goes on, no matter what I make for dinner (high protein good fats, veggies) I never feel full. It's like TV over-rides my off switch. I wait 20 minutes to feel full after dinner but I don't so I eat a second helping and still don't quite feel satisfied and am plagued for the rest of the night by cravings even when I KNOW I'm full. Even consuming good food, calories can pile up, and I know I am over-eating. I'm pretty positive I can resolve the issue by unplugging the TV (which shall be done tonight!) and turning on some music or picking up a book or taking the dog to the park, anything to re-route the boredom. I was just wondering if anyone else was having a similar problem and how they have dealt with it, especially after a long long day when your resolve and self-discipline are at their weakest and your motivation to do really anything is gone. I understand what drives the cravings. I understand the difference between hunger and cravings and can identify which I am feeling. But at night when I'm already worn out I just can't seem to say "no". Any suggestions?
