The last few days, i've been having HUGE chocolate cravings!! I keep giving into them using my syns allowance, but its just never satisfied!! Its SO weird I didnt even like chocolate that much before SW!!!
Sometimes it's one of those you want what you think you can't have. You can still have a really decent amount of chocolate each day if you prioritise your synage! Iv been eating twirls - single fingers are only 6 syns and feel really indulgent
Don't know where I'd be without my Alpen Lights really as they seem to satisfy my sweet cravings (the choc/orange ones). Bought 2 crates today so I can take them on holiday with me as well!
Also why don't you try the minimilks that someone suggested on here, which should do the trick?
Sugar cravings are caused by a sharp drop in the body’s blood sugar levels.
When the dip occurs, your body’s instant message to the brain is to call for “fuel” and this translates to you as a craving for sugar. The cycle then continues.
How to break the cycle
The only way to break the cycle is to spread out your sugar intake throughout the day. Try and eat complex carbohydrates rather than simple refined sugars (eg chocolate). These carbohydrates give you the same sweetness but take longer to breakdown and therefore send your body a gradual supply of sugar rather than one big sugar dump. The effect of these slow release carbs is to keep you going between meals and keep your blood sugar levels constant.
oooh ok I must have had a low carb day without really realising! It only lasted that day, ive been fine since!...It may have been something to do with the giant lindt chocolate santa that appeared in my fridge to...x
