Catwoman Posted January 4, 2015 Share Posted January 4, 2015 I am on day 4 (really day 5 though as other than a protein shake I started eating this way on 12/31). Until yesterday, I have done really well, craving-wise. Hadn't had many negative side effects either. All of a sudden at about 3 pm yesterday I was DYING for apples. It was a very specific, very strong craving for nothing but a juicy apple. I was also tired, headachy and slightly quesy. I ate a granny smith and felt immediately better. Was this "okay" or should I have fought the craving and had protein&fat instead? I am pretty active with crossfit 3x/week and am absolutely NOT looking to lose any weight. If anything I'd like to add some muscle. It's hard to believe a craving for an apple is a bad thing, but I'm also trying to break my sweets habit. So far breakfast has been eggs and sauteed greens, sweet potato and avocado. Lunch is some kind of meat and sauteed veg, same with dinner. I usually have a 1-2 pieces a fruit a day, usually after a meal (I know-not good). although yesterday I had only had eggs, sauteed veggies and some salmon cakes. Wondering if my brain was rebelling against that and asking for some sugar? Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
