    LADIES: how do you deal with sugar/carb cravings at...

    Primal Fuel
    that time of the month?

    This is brutal!

    I'm way hugrier than normal but worse than that, all I want is ice cream and maybe a bagel with cream cheese and....well....

    I'm doing too well and have come too far over the past 1.5 months, starting with eliminatiing wheat and working up to being pretty darn close to fully Primal. I don't want to ruin it because of stupid (but persistent) cravings.

    Help?

    STEAK!!!! Rare, juicy, fatty steak. Nothing like blood to vent the temper. Gets your iron up where it belongs too.

    1. BACON
    2. Coconut milk ice cream. It has agave in it but other than that it's generally 100% primal!

    All amazing ideas! Where did you find this ice cream?

    And Herbwifemama, where did you get the recipe for the date/nut/chocolate balls?

    Thanks, ladies .

    Garden of Eating gave me the inspiration, but I sort of tossed some dates in a blender with some hot water, cashews, a smidge of honey, and an ounce of chopped chocolate. It was goooood. Oh, and coconut!

    fat fat and more fat.... my fav. is bacon & cabbage and what ever meat I have on hand like steak or
    roast all mixed up in butter, add cabage last so it is still crunchy S&P....

    I make a big batch and munch it all day ..

    If I eat chocolate I am starving even if it 86 % or higher.

    If I do this for a couple of days my hunger levels out again and I don't cave to something not so good

    Ice cream craving -I take care of w/ 100% Fat fage stevia, and a fav. frozen fruit like blueberries or strawberries little milk or coconut milk,mixed in blender thick


    The other day I ate all day, but I sure did feel better the next day no cravings.. what so ever the rest of the week

    B-homemade roast/french onion soup w/ no bread in it of course (3 bowls)
    cabbage and bacon/butter
    L-2 pork chops w/ cream and butter sauce mixed veggies/butter
    S-broccoli butter
    S-BAS w/roast & bacon & apple
    D-wings and a salad

    GL listen to your body. If it is hungery feed it, real food- not chocolate,almond butter or munches.
