    Yeah, my sugar cravings stopped when I stopped eating sugar and grains, and this isn't a craving but more of a dopamine effect that I think of/remember/ and want to recreate. I've been doing it with sweetened chai tea and 85% chocolate to have a slight effect without such a bad reaction, but so far no natural foods have reproduced it...

    sweet potato boats: cut sweet potatoes in half lengthwise, slather with butter, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, cayenne, and bake until done. they taste like pie, and are even better cold.

    for drinks, try hibiscus tea and soda water with fresh lime juice

    I guess we should count our blessings when both are more accessible than sugar.

    Of course this is dependent on the quality of the bungee jumping.
    Lol, well, unless you are surgically attached to a partner or living at the top of a crane, then yup, it's easier to walk into a shop and buy some Haagan Daas

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    She doesn't have a trace of insulin resistance and is naturally slim. Hmm.

    Yeah... most of us are capable of the self-sex anywhere and anytime... but last I checked that was WAY less socially acceptable that popping a lifesaver.

    Seeking momentary happiness from food sounds like a symptom of a much deeper problem. I dealt with this for many years, and I, too, attempted to recreate the dopamine high of a crap-food binge with 'healthy' foods. Perhaps instead of trying to duplicate this fleeting bliss with other foods, you might want to focus on some non-food related ways to feel happier.

    Sex, drugs, exercise, and other more natural sugars have all been covered.

    Also: accomplishment. Eg., the day you realize you're no longer a sugar junkie. And maybe it took you awhile to notice because you're so much healthier than you were when you depended on sugar for a rush.

    Love - a fantastic rush. Add sex, and sugar is a paltry mood enhancer.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Sugar is a health tool, not an addiction or drug. It's good for you, therefore makes you feel happy. Like eating any healthy substance.

    Don't think so. I didn't have much of a sweet tooth growing up, and now I do. I actually ate more disgusting trash like green vegetables for a while and was very anti-sugar like many people here. So, basically, I caused the problem in me, by ascribing to mainstream alarmism and propaganda.
