Then i got a big boy job. And i quit.
No products, no cigs, no spice/ bath salts, no extra drinking. I just quit. I did what I had to, to get / keep my awesome job.
I had no anxiety, I had no depression. If at all , I wanted to smoke the first few days, but i'm over it. My brother still smokes right in front of me, offers me to hit it daily, and I dont.. That was 2-3 months ago...
If anything i had really crazy dreams when i first quit (and still do) but thats it. Never felt depressed / anxious. Probably for the first week, I was a little irritable, and I was kind of sensitive to loud noises, but that was it. very mild. I would not call that withdrawl at all.

I have an awesome job that forbids it. I went through a phase of smoking potpourri(fake maryjane). Didn't know What it was doing inside my body so I quit.Originally Posted by Celorza

Trade carbs for fats. Fats are very satiating. Ie: CKDOriginally Posted by dustinr334
What all fats u suggestOriginally Posted by rricketts
EFA'S....nuts... i still only have them in the morning. only efa's I have at night are fishoils
I am on a cut too now. and I feel same as you here...
What about fruits? mango to be specific? it's a great snack and and will also somewhat remove the desire of wanting to eat every ****ty food...
Maybe a good idea.. I just try to limit my fruits because of the sugarOriginally Posted by zubda345
True. I eat fruit daily..just try to limit.Originally Posted by zubda345
What do u do for hunger?? Did u read the comments about the emergency veggie bag,lol.. good stuff
I've had days like that too. What I always did was visualize what I wanted to look like and realize i won't get there if I can't keep control. This visualization process helped me lose 70lbs in 5 months. Then I rewarded myself by going on a slight bulk for the next 5 months. Keeping your eyes on the prize is the only sure fire way.
Drinking tons of water helped me too. I'd drink at least 24oz of water before every meal to make me feel more full. Diet soda helped a lot too with that full feeling. BCAAs help to curb your cravings but be aware they do have calories even though the label doesn't say so!
Also eat lots of plain spring greens w/ balsamic vinegar as dressing. Boring but good bulk of food with very little calories.
Make some real concentrated crystal light popsicles. Eat those and think about how much better you will look for it.
Works for me when I am jonesing on some sweets at night.
Sugar free jello is your friend too
Awesome idea. How do u do it.Originally Posted by rricketts
There are Popsicle trays at wal Mart you can buy. Or you can go a little more ghetto and fill Ice trays with crystal light, Saran wrap the top and put a tooth pick in the center of each ice spot. They are mini pop sicles.
Mix the crystal light at like 2:1 ratio and it's delicious.
Have a smoothie at night. Frozen fruit with some protein powder, wheat germ, flax meal and/or oatbran. Filling, protein packed, fiber full and delicious. Just throw it all in the blender with some soy milk (or regular milk if you eat that). Tip: when your bananas start to get too ripe, throw them in the freezer skin and all. To use in smoothies, banana bread, etc., thaw in microwave 30 seconds or so, peel and use. Mmmmmm.
Sounds tasty, but that's like 300+ calorie snack. I wouldn't slam that thing down before bed. But then again, I wouldnt take that many carbs in at any point in the day. To each their own.Originally Posted by GraceMarie123
Agreed. It sounds great, but I'm being told to avoid fruit that late at nightOriginally Posted by rricketts
