annek818 Posted January 13, 2017 Share Posted January 13, 2017 Hello everyone! I am planning on starting a whole 30 with a friend in a few weeks after I get back from a trip. I have done several whole 30s in the past with less than stellar outcomes. Admiringly, I have a really hard time taming my sugar dragon and I find myself feeding it with 'technically compliant' fresh fruit. I know this is not in the spirit of the program, but it seems so extreme to cut out fresh fruit in addition to everything else! I've tried cutting out fruit and anything that even tastes sweet in the past and it makes me feel so deprived it leads to binges. Is this just a wave I need to ride out? Double down with the willpower for the first week or two to get over the sugar cravings? Has anyone else found themselves feeling out of control with fresh fruit? I've tried limiting myself to two servings per day, but it almost seems easier not to have any at all because once I have SOME I want MORE and MORE and MORE. It helps to not eat fruit by itself- only incorporated into dishes, but I find that the sweet flavor can still be a trigger. In 'Food Freedom Forever' I love the idea of the craving buster reset, and am thinking I need to add fresh fruit to the restricted list in addition to dried fruit, nuts and nut butters. I would love to hear about anyone else's experiences/thoughts/opinions -- thank you in advance! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
