I keep craving sweets, always have. No matter how well I eat at the end of the day I still crave chocolate, cookies, candy etc. What could I possibly do?

Hi Celia13 .. I am a hardcore sugar addict! I can share a few tricks I have learned from doing Atkins for the past 10 years. The supplement L-Glutamine ( I take 500 mg 3X per day, after each meal ). It works great for me as long as I don't miss a dose. If I do forget to take it I will notice my cravings coming back within the same day. Also, getting enough protein and fiber REALLY helps! If I get a craving, a piece of strong tasting cheese like sharp cheddar, eaten slowly will completely kill the craving.

Just my opinion, but I don't think anything with artificial sweetners is a good idea. I am trying to give up anything that contains it (including Atkins products). Studies are showing that our bodies recognize it as sugar (excess insulin which keeps us fat) and the sweet taste keeps us addicted to sweets.
I hope some of this will help. Smile

Do I really look SICK ?

I am tired of people I know telling me I look sick. I feel great, and I am eating way more neutricious than ever before...... and excersizing to boot ! I think thaty they are just used to seeing me fatter. Whats your HONEST opinion ?

I am now at 195.6 pounds, and my goal is 180.

Pilsburry .. I think you look great! Same thing happened to my hubs. He actually started out at a similar starting weight to you (he is 6'1" ) and like you lost 60lbs very quickly, following P90x food/workouts. He got the same reaction. People asked me if he was sick. I think it is not that he looked sick but the rapid weight loss that got everyone's attention. He is now following a muscle building program to bulk up alittle. Congratulations to the new, healthier you!
