    I don't crave anything particularly but I find i am soooooooo hungry and will eat anything! My consultant always says it's a carb craving and not chocolate (hmmm.....) so always advises us to have green days and see if that works. I tend to have a lot of green days anyway so don't notice much difference but it's worth a shot!! As for craving junk, it's funny but I do find that when I've been eating junk (xmas, hols, blowout etc) I am also hungrier than ever before, I find it helps to write everything down - every little thing!!!! Makes me think about it. Keep with it! x

    A Dr I worked for (when I was a Nanny) told me that during that TOTM, your body craves carbs. If you stick to a Green Day when you know that its about to happen, you should resist the urge to gorge on chocolates...it works for me!!! I also eat 1 banana a day as I suffer with leg cramps and poor circulation and that works for me too.
