    It is a very common craving, for nuts, when you eliminate crabs and sweets. I remember times when I could eat 1/4 cup of peanut butter a day and want more on Anabolic diet. I have maybe a tbsp a day nowadays (organic, nothing added). I know it is technically a legume, but whatever is said about peanuts can be said about nuts as well, so I just said 'whatever' and if they revoke my Primal membership card for it... bah.
    I never (hardly ever) ate nut butters before embarking on this journey, but I guess since doing away with all the other stuff, I found comfort in nut butters. I measure out 1 or 2 TBL, otherwise I would eat the whole thing. When I stall, I think I should cut it, but sometimes it just seems like there will be nothing left. I know that is not true, but that is what it feels like. Same with yogurt. I want to try to cut it out and see what happens, but my almost daily endulgence is yogurt with nut butter, and either berries or banana (sometimes only half) I think this is what has saved me, and kept me away from the cookies and pies and cakes, and homemade breads and cinnamon rolls. Must.stop.typing about such things!

    Anyways, it seems as though my day just isnt complete until I eat it. I try not to because it is where the bulk of my daily carbs comes from, but then I just eat everything else but am just not happy until I eat it. Sometimes I think if I would start my day with that, I wouldn't need anything else and I would be happy all the rest of the day.

      I once ate an entire tub, while driving, with no spoon, in about 10 minutes flat. THAT was a hell of a craving. I seem to be over it now thankfully.
      Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

        Oh my! How did you not choke?!?

        I was having really bad peanut butter cravings myself.Kept telling myself i was going to NOT buy more when i went to the store was alas it made it's way into my cart.What i started doing was making fat bombs with coconut oil and peanut butter that way i got the peanut butter craving fix but also got good MCT's.It also makes me full because of the good fats so i can't gorge myself on them.

          My favorite breakfast is about 2 oz of raw macadamia nuts with coffee. Once you make nuts into a meal, they stop being a snack... I find it helps. I actually had a tbsp of peanut butter this morning when I was icing the mini-cheesecakes. The result? Ate a tbsp of peanut butter and did not eat any cheescakes or icing.

            If you have a craving for something take care of it. No need to torture yourself of something that will not harm you.

              Thats a good idea. I tend to graze while I'm in the kitchen cooking. Next time I'll get a small spoon and some PB!

                This is EXACTLY how I feel, too! I have cut down completely grains and starches (and I am very happy fot this), but dairy-addiction seems too difficult to beat!
