[QUOTE=RitaRose;498929]One thing I've personally noticed is that the foods I crave tend to be the foods I need to either eliminate or cut back on. I know some people have found it the other way around, but maybe my body is still fixing itself and doesn't get [I]healthy [/I]signals yet.
Anyway, I had a little bit of milk last week, and then I had a little more... and more. I kept drinking more and more until I finally was having something like 3 large glasses a day. Yeah, a bit much. I cut out all milk completely starting yesterday morning and I haven't been craving it at all today, plus my weight loss started up again.
Maybe it's the same with fruit for you.[/QUOTE]
My brain lies to me ALL the time...like it used to lie to me that I NEED milk...
I think my right brain is trying to convince my left brain that it's wrong, right isn't always right, right? =P
Sooo glad I read through all of these posts! I am only 3 weeks in, feeling fantastic, but haven't dropped a pound. Just finished the 21 day transformation and need to listen to my body more, possibly cut back more on dairy (although I don't eat much) and just hang in there. Thank you all for such positive insight. Its really hard changing your lifestyle in such a huge way - especially when a lot of people don't get it when you first tell them about it - these posts have really kept me from not being such a debbie downer about not losing the weight I want to in the time I want to. :)
I was addicted to the scales once.
I'd cheat -- eat too much, whatever -- then rush to the scales to see if I "got away with it."
Give it up. Weight fluctuates even when you're eating properly.
Eat right and you won't have to weigh yourself so often.
No guilt, no getting-away with anything.
You can't cheat Mother Nature.
