I never liked those things very much either.
I guess I lump bread into the "all carbs" category, as pasta and stuff like that could count as

(right from the ground, not the canned Yams, as they contain a VERY high sugar content). Either way, the results will be the same for someone who was
a "carboholic." There will be a slight withdrawal period in which some people may feel some discomfort. It subsides rather quickly, from what
And on another topic, I've found that in my own personal experience, that the cravings will come for certain foods when you least expect them to.
Being that I was never a huge fan of fast food, my cravings usually consist of crunchy, salty foods such as: fish and chips, deep fried mushrooms,
etc. Considering that these foods normally use a bread or beer based batter, they are huge no-no's. I've found that lightly sea-salted nuts such
as walnuts, peanuts, almonds, and pistachios actually help with those cravings.
This morning I had an intense craving for anything deep fried. When I realized that my body was screaming "Give me some sort of fat!" (which is
basically what the deep fried stuff is), I fried a small 4 oz. porkchop in a saute pan and topped it with some button mushrooms and zucchini. That
killed the craving, and gave me a great brunch to fill me up for the rest of the busy day.
