IAMLOVEDBYYOU.. As a low carber this is normal, and by eating some protein as Becky said, you can get rid of cravings. The other major issue is usually the salad dressing. A vinegarette, or simple olive oil/vinegar dressing will help to ensure that you don't get sugar cravings from a salad. If you just have to have a " normal " dressing, check the sugar content. This way salad can be the healthy food we all think it is. It is a great mix of fat, protein, and carbs, which is what we should try to get with all dishes. Chicken strips can be a substitute for eggs if you want.
HAPPYLISA... If you have a sugar addiction, more sugar is not going to help you. Grapes are loaded with sugar. So are bananas. As a diabetic I can't have these at all without a serious spike in blood sugar. While not exact in all foods, look at the glycemic index, and aim for low er glycemic foods. So if you need fruit, have berries, plums, or an apple instead of grapes. Eat along with something with fat and protein, like nuts, or cheese.
