    I currently have a craving for a McChicken Sandwich. I don't even like McChicken sandwiches. How odd.

    I apologise for the lascivious food-talk that will follow:
    Mine is always bread. In all its glorious forms - naan, pitta, white, brown, croissant, brioche, toasted, warmed. Sometimes the bread craving comes with an accompaniment such as baked beans or curry but the bread part seems to remain constant...
    Bizarrely, before LL I didn't really eat a lot of bread (although, clearly, my idea of 'not a lot' was fairly skewed) and never craved it.
    I read on another thread that Atkins says that you often crave things that your body is intolerant to, but who knows...

    Last night there was an advert for KFC and I craved KFC all evening (serves me right for watching the X Factor).

    I don't even like KFC, I haven't eaten it in years, as far as I'm concerened the Colonel should have taken the secret recipe to his grave.

    Hmm, I did walk round the supermarket last night looking for something nice to eat. I fancied some of that lovely cooked, warm chicken bits they do but as it was late it was all gone. Probably just as well. Home to a cup of mushie soup!
    But I feel better for it today.

    When I first started LL, I used to dream about cheating & having something sneaky to eat. Of all the things I could dream about eating, I chose cream crackers!!! How sad is that? No chocolate, just cream crackers! Bizarre!!

    I used to crave a Subway sandwich - I don't even like them either. Finally gave in and had one during a brief lapse period and it actually made me horrendously sick - so now the smell of them just makes me feel ill!

    Jemz29,
    It is amazing how quickly the time goes on this diet!!! You will be eating your favs soon enough! And hopefully with a nice new way of thinking about it! I know I will.

    I have been wanting chicken, brown rice and veg for weeks (and someone at work keeps eating it frequently so I just inhale deeply and imagine)

    And curry. The only time I have been tempted to eat was last Friday at work when someone bought in lots of yummy Indian food in celebration of Diwali - everyone was oohing and ahhing all over the place and I soooo wanted some too (had to leave the room)

    Meat and cheese probably aren't the worst things you could eat as they won't really affect your ketosis, not that I'm encouraging anyone to cheat!

    Yesterday I really craved Turkey and Cranberry sauce.
