LADIES: how do you deal with sugar/carb cravings at...
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.
buy some nice high end dark chocolate (more than 75%) and enjoy
STEAK!!!! Rare, juicy, fatty steak. Nothing like blood to vent the temper. Gets your iron up where it belongs too.
Thanks for the tips! Sending the man out to buy the super dark chocolate NOW! No steak on hand but will remember that for next month...and the next month...and so on .
2. Coconut milk ice cream. It has agave in it but other than that it's generally 100% primal!
Avocado. Pure heaven. And this month, I made some date/nut balls with 100% chocolate in them. Yum!
All amazing ideas! Where did you find this ice cream?

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-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.
