    feeling a little guilty

    Shop Now
    i did a IF today well not for long but i did manage to skip breakfast and for lunch I had a vegetable bowl of carrots and asparagus and chopped up grilled chicked on the side

    but i made the mistake of snacking on M&M's so now i'm feeling a little guilty about it..what should i do when I have a sugar craving like that?? which by the way will be the most challenging part of adapting to the primal/paleo lifestyle.

    Eat fat. Relax. Your cravings will go away if you don't feed them!

    No wonder you succumbed. I see ZERO fat in your lunch.

    Eat something fatty, and resist the craving. Do this every time. Eventually there will be no cravings anymore - but you MUST NOT feed them!
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    Instead of grilling chicken you could have pan-fried it in olive oil or coconut oil. Probably be more juicier than grilling. Add a salad to the meal with olive oil as a salad dressing. Add avocado in your salad for extra fat.

    You need to go cold turkey on those processed sugars if you expect to lose the cravings. & EAT FAT!

    put some avocado on top of that chicken, or fry it up in some bacon fat or smother it in a home made holandaise sauce - or all of the above! there's some fatty goodness for ya.

    I know how hard it is, I wish it was as easy as just saying no. sometimes it is, sometimes it isnt. I havent found having more fat in my diet has helped me with this problem. But sometimes I will just look at something I would normally eat, (like at the chiropracter today, he has a big bowl of jellybeans on the counter) and stare at them and tell them loudly no, I do not need to eat you. Ok I look like bit of a dick sometimes (like at the chiro) but it helps me mentally! Either way, indulge in 2 seconds of guilt and then get back on the horse. Everyone falls off at some point along the way.
