I can't control my sugar cravings :'(
Ok so I keep stop-starting since I restarted S&S, because I just can't control my sugar cravings.
My mum isn't on a diet, so she still has things in the cupboard and I literally can't stop myself from having some, it's like something overtakes my brain and I can't resist it, even though it makes me sad
I don't know how to overcome this, is there anything that helps subdue sugar cravings? I feel so desperate here, I just want to be free of it
I'm a sugar addict too so I
Totally get how you feel. The thing is you CAN control your brain, it just takes time and practise. Trying these might help-
Stay out of the cupboards/ places where your mum keeps the treats. Put your s n s stuff somewhere else so you can access it without seeing all the goodies!!
Everytime you feel like having a sugary treat, stop, grab a pad and pen and sit for 5 minutes listing all of the great things you will be able to do when you lose weight. E.g play sports, fit into smaller jeans etc.
Buy a smaller item of clothing, keep looking at it as motivation!
When you crave sugar you need to do something to keep yourself busy, start a hobby, read a book, go for a bath...
Some people find the bars satisfy sugar cravings but for me I just can't stop at one so they are a no no. Maybe have some s and s water flavouring, the orange is pretty sweet. I know it's not the same as chocolate etc but you've gotta decide what you want more- chocolate or weight loss/ better health.
If there is some kind of pill or herb that helps to subdue sugar cravings I'd love to know too . I think changing our minds is the only real way to solve it though!
Sit down and think where you really want to be. I always sit and look on clothes online on stores like river island you will get there I just looks t chocolate now and think hmm I love you but your mean and make me fat and gain weight. Also I have a crispy shake into a pudding when I crave
I was a hungry caterpillar, I ate and ate and ate but soon I will be the beautiful butterfly
Yeah the crispy choc shake as a mousse is a good one and doesn't seem to set me off the way the bars do
I read in one of the many things I've had my head buried in about dieting and stuff that a chromium supplement will help with sugar/carb cravings.... I got mine from Holland and barrett and it seems to do the job.... Placebo.... who knows but i certainly dont seem to crave the sweet stuff as much....
Now if they could now find something to stop me wanting cheese that'd be ace!!!!

I read about that chromium stuff, does it genunely work? Like are your cravings noticeably less? And do you feel more in control? I feel like I may need these. I remember I took those infamous 'Fruta Planta' tablets before and they completely stopped my appetite but i started to get a really hard heartbeat so I knew that there must be some kind of amphetamine type substance in there to do that, so I stopped them straight away. It's a shame because they totally worked. And I always save cheese eating for christmas so I can have it with those variety boxes of crackers!

It was honestly the most difficult food related thing I think i've ever done, but I did it! I was 100% today! Now I know I can always do it if I really want to! Yay me!
On another note, i bought those chromium pills and it did NOTHING for my sugar cravings I wanted to get Glutamine cos apparently that\s meant to have an almost instant effect on your sugar cravings, but it was SO expensive in H&B, so I went for the chromium. It had no effect whatsoever for me though, so I was kind of bummed out.
