Changed Cravings

Friday, February 08, 2013

To begin with, I would crave cookies, candies and pastries. I could hardly go past the bakery without buying something each time. I would eat Crispies for breakfast occasionally (those are large sugar cinnamon fried pastries for those who don't know). I would purposely go to the processed cookie isle and pick up a bag o' something, then when I got home, would eat at least half of it. I would look like a shark in a feeding frenzy with that bag. Donuts would be part of many days. I could easily eat a big bowl of ice cream.

Now my cravings are a little better. I crave fruit that's coming into season. I love smoothies. I can tame a sweet tooth a with a little cereal. I crave cucumbers. Occasionally I crave a little spreadable cheese. My carvings usually are done by the time I'm out of the produce area.

Once I hit the bakery, the craving might hit for a second, but then I remember how much all of it tastes like shortening and that is not a feeling I like in my mouth. For the life of me, I just can't stand a waxy feeling in my mouth and all that processed stuff is waxy.

So today I will be cutting up a cucumber and having an orange with lunch. I may have some ice cream later, but it will only be the serving size and not an entire big bowl. My body craves the stuff that will make it feel better all week instead of the stuff that feels good in the moment, but not in an hour.

    I love all the healthy foods, but I still crave chocolate all the time! You've made great progress!

    That is awesome :) My cravings are also slowly but surely changing (last week it was seafood) I know that diet soda isn't the best thing to drink, but I took a drink of coke the other day and it didn't taste nearly as great as I remembered. I don't drink sugar in my coffee anymore and now when I taste sugar in coffee it seems to leave a bad taste in my mouth now. We just are training our bodies to enjoy healthier things. Keep up the awesome work!

    Thanks for sharing. It's amazing on how your cravings have changed. I need to work on my healthy eating better and perhaps I will crave the healthy stuff in time. emoticon

    emoticon I too no longer crave junk food, processed foods or even fast foods. I went on a 2 month long spree to ween myself off of that stuff. Now to eat any of it makes my stomach churn 95% of the time. Isn't it fabulous. We're living healthier and making better choices. Wish I loved fruits and vegetables though. Keep up the good work. Sounds like your doing awesome.
