Actually that's a good reminder - I used to take chromium and it worked. I keep thinking that if this really is an endocrine issue that the cravings must surely go away. And if I'm now almost healthy enough to start the weight loss phase, why do I still have the cravings??
I'm quite nervous about the low carb thing, but I guess if I'm doing it for short bursts under medical supervision . . . last time I started really well, then over the course of a couple of weeks I got less and less energetic and ended up really miserable.
Now coffee - I never really got the hang of drinking it! It makes my heart jump around, interfering with sleep, and gives me the jitters, as well as tasting awful. I do love the smell though, lol.
