  1. How do you guys deal with sugar cravings?


    Alright guys,

    Title says it all!


    We all know or have been through contest prep before, and I'm sure have stumbled upon that crazy sugar craving that you get at certain points..

    Curious to know how everyone deals with it differently? Or what you have/eat to curb those cravings?


  2. I honestly don't get many, however...

    Diet soda
    Diet jelly
    Strawberries
    Blueberries

    Diet soda is a must for me when I get them..

    However, I'm not so sure about fruits during contest prep? Although I know there are mixed opinions on this one

    Strawberries/Blueberries sugar content is pretty low, and timing. 100g of strawberries has 33 calories.

    Actually I like Soda Water 😂 😂 😂

    I eat diet Jelly if I'm hungry to fill myself up after a meal and feel like I've had something sweet. I actually like it tho!

  5. Yes diet sodas are a good cure for me as well. I also make a shake in my first meal of the day with my egg whites and oats using an Apple Jacks Cereal flavored protein powder. It's pretty sweet and helps with the cravings as well

  6. I drink tea with fat in it (coconut oil, macadamia oil).

  7. I don't have a craving for sugar, but my cravings for salt finally stopped when I started intermittent fasting.

  8. Lots of great responses here!

    Thanks guys

  9. Diet Soda
    Berries
    FIBER Supplement. I always pimp Fiber Supps because I feel they help keep me full and keep my cravings in check

  10. Diet Dr Pepper and ephedrine. Melanotan in small doses also shuts my cravings down but I feel flat while using it so I wouldn't advise it super close to the show (I think it converts my food cravings to sexual cravings lol)

    Thanks for the info. Great post.

  15. I really don't get cravings because I don't cut out carbs entirely. It works for some people, but for me it doesn't. I do go fairly low towards the last few weeks and to offset any possible cravings I just mix my preworkout into sugar free jello. That way, before every workout I get to have something sweet!!!

  16. Definitely some great ideas in here

    I have a bottle of cinnamon sticks by my bed. When I get really hungry I suck on these.

  17. I usually eat a spoonful of honey, it's so sweet that it quenches my cravings for a long time.

    Never tried them. I Imagine theyre good.

    I used to cut sweet potatoes up , put ib a bag , with salt, pepper and olive oil, swish around, put on sheet, then cook. Haven't done it in a while though. Its a decent recipe in place of fries

    It is I recommend them a try. On those sweet potatoe cinnamon fries, do you use olive oil, or just bake the fries, then spinkle cinnamon on them?

  22. Wow this is old but one that has been known to work well and did for me was to put a tiny dab of toothpaste on the center of your tongue, I am not sure why but it seems to satisfy the craving.

    Unless you crave toothpaste, this just seems like a way to avoid a craving....#moderation

  24. Slam down 2 slinmax and eat whatever you like 😀🍩🍰🍦🍔🍟🌭
    And wake up leaner lol 👍

    Way to be dismissive!

    Avoiding / dealing with sugar cravings was the subject of the thread. It works for everyone who told me about it and everyone I have told. Besides during a contest prep #moderation is just ridiculous to suggest... this isn't a general nutrition thread. You have specific macros and specific sugar allowances during prep...
