Call it Cold Turkey if you want - I have come off SS and am now moving up through the plans and have unexpectedly found that I now really don't want all of the crap I used to crave. I've just had some cherry tomatoes and mange-tout peas and do you know what? I almost found them too sweet:8855:! This is from the person who could almost inhale chocolate without noticing. I think as well as the motivation through the weight loss, CD is (for me anyway) like an alcoholic going on the wagon or drug addict going cold turkey - a complete break from the addiction to let your body sort itself out. I find that (out of habit probably) I still go 'Mmmmmmmmmmmmm' when I see the lovely Christmas food ads on the TV, but if I was offered a table full, I don't think I would plough in without thinking like I used to. It's just a thought - I wondered if anyone else had found the same?
