    junk food withdraw?


    5 months ago i suffered a dislocated rib followed by a blown out knee so needless to say this wasnt the best summer for me. i guess i got a little depressed since i couldnt train or really do anything so i basically sat on the couch and ate like a foolizza: . now that im able to finally do some training my motivation has come back. ive cleaned up my diet but over the 1st week im having major mood swings and just snapping at people for no reason....i think im having junk food withdraw.my question is how long will it take my body to get used to this switch?

    Fats and sugars you're craving. If you're deficient your body wil crave what is out of balance so the key is keeping a proper balance while dieting.

    That's what I'm talking about - junk food withdrawals! Why couldn't I think of that.

    It's all chemically related. I'd say a month tops, as soon as your testosterone and estrogen levels finish adjusting to your activity level, you'll be fine.

    Start under the forum listing and press new thread button, I think. Go to the nutrition forum heading or whatever the topic is and before you go into a thread there should be a button in the upper left saying "new Thread".

    Man, I know the feeling. About 4 years back I used to get crap and drink soda like it was going out of style! I dropped it all cold turkey and started to get crazy headaches. After a while they went away and now I can't stand sweet/soda. Just like smoking, its going to be REALLY hard, but once you get through it you'll never look back.
