AllyB Posted July 7, 2014 Share Posted July 7, 2014 I noticed something this past weekend. I had lunch (a nice big salad with some WF2 braised short ribs). And after I finished, I had a sugar craving. It annoyed me, but was no surprise since I still have them frequently. I started to do the dishes and clean the kitchen (keeping busy really helps me through the craving.) I know that my cravings last about 20 minutes. If I can keep busy during that time, they subside. But what I noticed with this particular craving was after the 20 minutes were over, I got a nice big energy burst. It was like my body wanted the sugar, but since none came, it went ahead and started burning something else to kick up my energy. I would be curious to check blood sugar and insulin levels at various points pre/during/post craving and see what's going on. Anyone know? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
