Oh my goodness; what is going on? The strangest thing has happened this morning. I have made major adjustments in my nutrition; eating habits for the past 5 months in particularly. I make it a habit to eat breakfast every morning; this morning raisin and spice instant oatmeal around 7am. I eat two packs and drink a bottle of water; normally I’m good until my snack time at 10am. Well, I’m not sure what’s going on but 1 ½ hours later; I’m so hungry; craving everything; like chocolate; potato chips and such. What is this all about and how do I handle this?

I’m trying to be good but this is becoming unbearable. Now I’m thinking; Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I’m trying to mentally prepare to stay within my ranges; I feel like its sabotage; I’m already having problems with the scale moving and I’m trying to rebound from that. I guess my body is feeling deprived of those things it was once used to, there has got to be a happy medium. Any ideas?

    i have noticed when my cravings are out of control that I have not EATEN enough protein, since I started paying closer attention to my protein and getting at least 60 g a day , My cravings have been so much easier to control. Try it !!

    You are not alone. I have been like that lately too. Hopefully it passes soon for both of us.

    When I'm going nuts like that I eat a piece of fruit or something that won't kill me to tide me over. It's a control the damage kind of thing. Oatmeal in the morning is one of my favorite ways to start the day.

    when I had lost all of my weight ; which since surgery I gained back
    I didnt deprive myself of anything I just ate alot less of it I find that when I deprive myselfof soemthing that thats when I crave it the most

    my suggestion for the midmorning snack attack would b to try to find something that has almost no calories to munch on - for me its celery sticks

    I suggest get up and move. Grab a glass of water and take a quick walk (even if you're at work and it's just around the building). It sounds like you're a) hormonal (going through the same thing right now), or b) your brain is preparing yourself to fail tomorrow. You can do this!

    Maybe you aren't getting enough protein. I'm not all that great with nutrition but that would be my guess.
