    Sugar cravings are normal, no need to eliminate. Have some orange juice and string cheese, or jello:

      Some people like me just do not have sugar cravings. Never have even pre-Primal. My cravings were always of the salty greasy fried variety like onion rings.

        Same here. I can take or leave sweets including most fruit.

          +1. I wouldn't say I NEVER have a sweet craving, but it's extremely rare. However, I have pizza and nachos cravings basically all the time. One thing Primal never fixed for me was junk food cravings... it just made it much easier to resist.

            Is it just me, or can nobody else ever imagine shouting 'This is better than sugar' in the heat of the moment?
            "Dieses ist besser als Sex"

            No... I simply cannot imagine anyone ever shouting about sex being better than sugar...
            But I'm quite sure that it is.
            At least for me!
            Better than roller coasters too, though I quite like them... better then sugar even.

              Yeah, my sugar cravings stopped when I stopped eating sugar and grains, and this isn't a craving but more of a dopamine effect that I think of/remember/ and want to recreate. I've been doing it with sweetened chai tea and 85% chocolate to have a slight effect without such a bad reaction, but so far no natural foods have reproduced it...

                sweet potato boats: cut sweet potatoes in half lengthwise, slather with butter, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, cayenne, and bake until done. they taste like pie, and are even better cold.

                for drinks, try hibiscus tea and soda water with fresh lime juice

                    I guess we should count our blessings when both are more accessible than sugar.

                    Of course this is dependent on the quality of the bungee jumping.

                      I wonder if the foods people are drawn to as kids (before our taste buds have been hacked) reflect what's genetically more appropriate for them. My sister for example has always hated the taste of fat. (I remember used to sneak teaspoons of butter, and one time she saw me and practically spewed.!)

                        Yeah... most of us are capable of the self-sex anywhere and anytime... but last I checked that was WAY less socially acceptable that popping a lifesaver.

                          Seeking momentary happiness from food sounds like a symptom of a much deeper problem. I dealt with this for many years, and I, too, attempted to recreate the dopamine high of a crap-food binge with 'healthy' foods. Perhaps instead of trying to duplicate this fleeting bliss with other foods, you might want to focus on some non-food related ways to feel happier.

                            Sex, drugs, exercise, and other more natural sugars have all been covered.

                            Also: accomplishment. Eg., the day you realize you're no longer a sugar junkie. And maybe it took you awhile to notice because you're so much healthier than you were when you depended on sugar for a rush.

                            Love - a fantastic rush. Add sex, and sugar is a paltry mood enhancer.

                              Sugar is a health tool, not an addiction or drug. It's good for you, therefore makes you feel happy. Like eating any healthy substance.

                                Don't think so. I didn't have much of a sweet tooth growing up, and now I do. I actually ate more disgusting trash like green vegetables for a while and was very anti-sugar like many people here. So, basically, I caused the problem in me, by ascribing to mainstream alarmism and propaganda.
