...you might stab your spouse with a fork as you vie for a few dried up marshmallows from last summer's s'mores, rumaged from the back of the pantry - the only sugary/sweet thing left in the house post-Holiday.

Either one of us might ransom one of our kids for a carb.

I swear, getting back off of carbs is so dang hard. Sugar is evil. I even read that an oreo is like seven or eight times more addictive than coc aine. At this moment - I totally believe it because I am a woman on the edge of something desperate!


If y'all hear a wild story or see a you tube video of some crazy chick going off the deep end down some cookie and cracker aisle somewhere. ..it's probably me....

Oh, I feel your pain!



I find myself doing the same thing. Ugh, it's hard. It's so so addictive. Would love an Oreo about now, dang it!

I'm not big on marshmallows!
But I had some garlic with my meal tonight!
And it tends to make me crave sweets..

Thanks to you I want moosetrack ice cream with marshmallows!
I hope you are happy!
Stores are closed!
;-)

Wait!? You're a lady?
I too tried cutting carbs... started with salad and veggies...
Lasted 3 days.

Now I get 95/5 ground meat...
I caved too! Even had a baked potato!

I must be one of the only women alive that would gladly give you all of the Oreos and chocolate on earth for all of the chips, pretzels, etc. on earth.

I much prefer the salty to the sweet. Once on a blue moon I will crave something sweet... The rest of the time it's salty all the way.

Share the crusty marshmallows KJ... It's the right thing to do.

It's not really even a diet...more a lifestyle. It's just getting back to how we used to eat before we lost our freaking minds at Christmas. We're just so shocked at how hard it is to get back on track. Carbs and processed foods in general are just so seriously addictive and so easy. It's like a double whammy.

That's actually a good thing.. Salsa.
I replaced drowning my salads with dressings a couple years ago..
I use salsa..
Dropped 20 pounds..
It works!

I like that too...but - even that - gotta read the label...there's sugar in some salsas.

It's diabolical.

Coming off carbs is extremely difficult, I swear when I am carb free my sense of smell becomes wolf like, I can literally smell carbs within a 3 mile radius

im not a woman or anything, but I think its safe to say keeping a good stock of fresh fruit (berries especially) is a good counter to the craving you have for the bad sugars. My kids eat bananas, tangerines, berries, on the regular with the occasional exotic (kiwi, cantaloupe, honeydew, dragon fruit, passion fruit, pomegranate, etc etc). I find bananas, berries and citrus are the easiest to keep in stock for the regular day to day. They are cheaper and plentiful. You can mix it up throughout the week by buying an odd random fruit that would not be as cost effective to keep stocked daily.

Its funny because my oldest son who just turned eight cannot be forced to drink a soda. He will refuse it every time. I even tried to bribe him once to test his limit, nope did not work.

How I got myself off sugar is...instead I eat a serving of fruit...nature's desserts...and I drink a lot of water too.

Carbs make you happy and there are enough carbs in vegetables like lettuce to see you through.

I am on the same thing, though I DID stab my husband for the chocolate chip cookies he stash couple of nights ago. Jerk


My body has really struggled living in the states. Really struggled. I've even joined an expat site where we console each other over the food here. I have to be "that hipster" and go to the organic isle and get my veggies or I just am in pain. Processed food is the devil.

Salt is naughty too and is sugar and whites. Have become racist against white with our food.

Glass of warm lemon juice each morning is like a healthy punch in the ribs for your system.

The only cure for a sugar jag (besides sugar) is a long jog or similar anaerobic activity.

Wish I had better news.

It is diabolical..
But it worked..
Key word in any diet...

"MODERATION" ..

But there are brands out there.
Pace pecante sauce is alright...
Chi Chi's brand has more sugar.
But I gave it a shot and went to the organic section... it was not bad.
After that. I started growing my own tomatoes, peppers, and chili's ... add olive oil and pack in some mason jars... bingo!
No more half gallon of ranch on my salad...
Add some Siracha sauce if needed.
