It's come down to simply not having sugary foods in the house, for me. If they aren't there for you to indulge in or obsess over, the you can't break your daily goals! If you DO want to indulge, you have to go to the store and buy something very small, not a family pack.that way, when its done, you can't overeat it, but you've satisfied your craving. I'm struggling with this too, and am considering taking l-glutamine like another person said before me. I haven't done this yet, though.
I will try the l-glutamine, thanks! I've found that putting a little xylitol or stevia in my tea helps, or keep some of the sweeter varieties of terra chips around to snack on instead. The sweets and apples have a little cinnamon and sugar on them and that's usually enough for me.
I've only been primal since Jan 1 and sugar (from any source) seems to keep me wanting more. Since I discovered this (a great thing about eating primal is that I am much more aware of what I am eating now) I stay away from sugar and fruits.
I figure maybe my body needs to go through some sort of sugar detox program before I can start adding it back in without it making me want to keep eating.
I find that eating some nuts or cheese most times helps when I get that sugar type craving. Or some 90% cocoa chocolate (it doesn't have much sugar at all) but I try to limit that to 8 squares (one bar) a week.
