Don't worry about that weight gain! It's mostly water weight and undigested food sitting in your intestine. You'll lose it as quickly as you put it on - I promise <3

Almond muffins are carbs sure, but they're also packed full with fat and other ingredients, which makes them very addictive. I wouldnt compare them to fruit. If I was to go on a carb party I would eat loads of fruit, low fat dairy, honey, maple syrup, sugar. I bet that would alleviate your cravings. Do you think it's something you could try? Remember that fruit is probably the healthiest food you can eat...
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." 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."
