Wed, 27 Jul 2011 14:49:25 EST a reminder from a friend about SUGAR http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4388356 My reasoning was this: carbohydrates and sugar raise your blood insulin. The blod insulin makes you hungry and you crave things. Eliminate the easily-digestible carbohydrates and you eliminate the cravings. It worked for me, it doesn't work for everyone.

Had roughly 1700 cal for the day. My max limit is 1500. But I stuck to the plan for the most part of the day until after dinner when I was craving something sweet. Had some choc chips and fiber one bar. and also had an extra serving of mashed potatoes at dinner. I love mashed potatoes!!! Mmmmm...so hard to stick to .6 of a serving.lol. But I have def. made a step in the right direction by tracking all day today and even the extra foods I ate. Shows how quickly those calo...
