i'm pretty sure i'm not really starving. i find the calorie restriction is fine, but i cannot sleep at night if my stomach hurts. i think maybe i've cut too many carbs (the complex kind). it's important to me to figure out how to eat without being crazy restrictive. i don't want to do any extreme thing (like being gluten free) because i do not have celiac's disease or intolerance to gluten.

i want to be able to enjoy dessert occasionally, not all the time. also, i will never, ever give up croissants.

    For what it's worth, every night before I go to bed I have a small bowl of wholegrain cereal. I allow for it in my nutrition plan. It helps me avoid giving in to any cravings during the evening, because I know I have the snack to look forward to - and it helps keep me from being so ravenous I can't get to sleep...

  complex carbs get that name because they have lots of fiber in them. fiber makes you feel full longer. fiber keeps you from dieing from colon cancer (a little simplistic, yes, but basically true). people don't eat enough fiber because they cut back on those nasty carbs. eating is not as simple or easy as some diet gurus want you to believe.

    Don't forget your water. Sometimes when I am really hungry in the evening I haven't gotten enough water in for the day.

    I am not on a diet, I eat everything in moderation. It is taking me longer to loose weight, but the good thing is I don't have to give anything up and I can live with this lifestyle for the rest of my life. I also exercise at least 6 days per week. It works for me.
