Sugar Cravings Be Gone!

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Does anyone else crave sugar? I'm not just talking in sweets, but literally the granulated sugar you put on your cereal?

I can eat normal and healthy all day. Around 9:30 at night, I start to have sugar cravings. It's ridiculous. I do get extremely hungry around that time, and because I go to bed usually well after midnight, I usually let myself have a small snack. (Small is the key word here.) Sometimes it is 1/2 cup Jell-o with Reddi-whip, sometimes it is a small bowl of bran flakes and almond milk. Something healthy. But I have to struggle to not allow myself to put a bunch of sugar on my cereal or eat something with a lot of sugar. Gross.

Anyway, some people crave ice cream or chips at night, I crave sugar. Hope that one goes out the window one of these days.

Total subject change, but I am super excited. Sven, a local weather guy, claims the worst of our MN winter is behind us. It's supposed to be in the 30's next week. Spring is on it's way...? Just a matter of time before we see this again:

    I just starving recognizing a craving for sugar. Just finished some research that says a yeast overgrowth might be responsible
