I do really good through the week then the weekend hits and I go to work and I can't leave work I take care of the mentally/ physically handicapped older adults and I go in Friday at 8am and don't get off till Monday afternoon. I stay over night and all day with them. So as I was saying I do good during the week then Friday hits and I can't go no where I have no computer with internet there either. I do bring books to read but I think I have a little a.d.d cause I can only stay focused for so long on something and I get bored so TV is all there is when I'm not reading. I'm OK on eating up until around 8pm then the killer cravings set in. I've tried to ignore them and tried to focus my mind on something else but then I start getting nausea and then I have to get something to eat which by then if I eat then I'm going over my calories. I got some carrots so Its not too bad, BUT as I mentioned I've been getting killer cravings and its not for carrots. ugh sweets and salty foods. I feel like I have no control over it. I've even had bad dreams about how out of control they are and how I just feel like I've lost my well power. Its the worst on the weekends but I've been feeling the cravings through the week too here recently. I have to say I've not just went and ate everything in site so I am restricting the cravings quite a bit. But I still feel I give in to much. Just wondering if there is some trick to get the cravings to go away. I have tried drinking a whole lot of water but it doesn't help much so by the time It gets to the worst of the cravings I'm getting nauseous and feeling like my sugar is too low. I'm not diabetic, I have been tested for it and my tests came back fine. So was just wondering if anyone else had this problem and what do you do about it?
