    Any way to duplicate sugar satisfaction?

    Primal Fuel
    When I used to eat sugar, that initial few minutes after eating it felt so blissful... of course, the crash and crankiness and negative effects later on, but I haven't found any primal food that duplicates the sugar happiness, lol. Dark chocolate gives me energy and focus but not that blissful sensation. Is this a trick of unhealthy manmade foods or have you found a primal counterpart?

    Banana fried in butter then drizzled with almond butter/cocoa/honey mixture is a pretty blissful experience for me. If you do honey i'd recommend the local raw kind.
    It's great with pecan nuts too.

    Don't sweet things trigger the feel-good neurotransmitters? I view cutting sugar out as trying to get off a drug. Your brain is accustomed to certain levels of transmitters due to sugar. If you let your brain get re-accustomed to a new normal baseline (without the sugar), then simpler things will trigger the good feelings that you're craving.

    That's my take on it anyway. Sorry if it didn't make much sense. I just got off a 12hr day at work. :P

    bananas, cream and melted dark chocolate.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    bloodorchid is always right

    Yeah, or heroin. Or razor blades if you're a cutter. It may take some time to wean yourself away from that feeling, but don't kid yourself that it can be harmlessly replicated.

    Actually, recently, the closest thing I've found so far is the way I feel during the 5-6 hours between my morning coffee with heavy cream and my first real meal, except that feeling is more like power and less like desperation.
