  • This is just me - so take it for what it's worth (not very much). Fruit, except in rather small doses, actually increases my sugar cravings. The more I eat, the more I want SUGAR. Even when I'm eating (and have been eating) totally, completely, 100% Paleo for 30-60 days, fruit gives me terrible sugar cravings. But, I have no problems with sweet potatoes, white potatoes, beets, parsnips, etc. Those leave me feeling happy and satisfied, especially when coupled with some lovely fat. [White rice isn't really my friend. I sometimes eat it, because, well, when I'm feeding 6, it comes in handy.] Maybe my gut is still off and that's why I have problems.

    • Karin, all you can do is self experimentation. I suspect I have cravings problems with white rice similar to Ruth's issue with fruit.

          • Hooray for last day with kids!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My two older boys finished yesterday, my little guy has a 1/2 day today (how stupid - they finished finals on Tuesday, but he's had to keep going to school. Guess they needed hours. Sigh. Poor teachers!!!).

            Good on the stable weight. If you hang in there, I know you're going to see a drop soon.

              • Fresh seasonal fruit kills my sweet cravings. Processed grains increase them. I cannot stop crackers or bread once started and then I will still go looking for junk.

                I think that for you right now that first and foremost compliance with the W30 is your goal. Eat as much as it allows for till you get past this. Once you get through the 30 then worry about whether or not you should add or subtract things.

                For me, weight loss occurs when I stay as close to the source as possible with real food and keep it simple (ie no complicated recipes or excess amount of flavors and textures in one dish)

                  • Yep. I am in the same boat. Dudla is with me on it, but Honey and Boo want variety and lots of carbs. Though Boo is happy with a plate that is covered with a big steak.

                            • Hi there Karin,

                              Just wanted to say well done on your progress... I'm new here and find it inspiring to see people who have journals that have umpteen posts! Persistence is the mother of success... when I opened your thread I saw your first post, saying 'compromise = failure', and I was like...'that's me!'... for me sugar is an addiction, pure and simple, and once I have a little I always wind up having more.... and more... and more.... I'd love to be that guy who has one square of the chocolate bar, and leaves the rest, but the fact is I've always been 'all or nothing' with food... either I'm 'all the way healthy' or I'm in a chocolate spiral! Today I am sugar and carb free, thank goodness! And I'm glad to meet you - thanks for sharing your story here!

                              ALl the best,
                              Lucas

                              • Hi Lucas, congrats on being sugar and carb free! It is interesting how different we all are. At every point in my life when I have tried to eliminate anything in my diet I inevitably start almost immediately eating just a little to see if it makes a different, then a bit more, then more until within a week I have totally forgotten I ever tried to do without.
