    Sugar cravings


    I've been having very strong sugar cravings lately. I never really crave sugar, but recently I've been craving it like crazy. I feel like Jeff Goldblum in The Fly. I'm been eating a bunch of turbinado sugar packs. I was just wondering what would cause this.

    I've been trying eat more carbs, but it's hard because I have to rely on my grand mom for food.

    Something I eat that's pretty "sweet":

    • Steel Cut Oatmeal (cold)
    • Milled Flax Seeds
    • Dannon Light and Fit Yogurt
    • Poor some Splenda on it

    I mix all of it together in a big bowl and then go to town, pretty damn tasty IMO.

    haha same here, whenever I actually do treat myself to something like chocolate, ice cream or whatever, I abuse the **** out of myself the next day at the gym.

    I just tried this upon your recommendation and it is pretty damn good! My second batch I added cinnamon too which also helped with some sweetness.

    Good call!

    I used to do FF Cottage Cheese with Cinnamon and some crystal light drink crystals = greatness. Now I just eat straight protein powder, don't do that lol.
