    Now maybe this could just be me... and feel free to tell me if so but I get strange cravings on exante.

    I just went to the kitchen to get a bottle of water, and OH was making his tea..... as soon as I walked in the kitchen all I could smell was hellmans mayonaise!

    I've never even noticed that it really had a smell before and all i could think about was eating that mayo out of the jar! I got thinking about it for 10 mins solid! lol

    That isn't the only time i've noticed that my sense of smell is really good whilst on exante!

    I'm an huge savoury person and today I put a new loo block in the cistern. as you do gave it a flush and this lemony burst came up and all i could think about was lemon curd on toast.... you are a reading it right flushing my loo made me crave lemon curd and I dont even like the sodding stuff!

    I was even craving rusk biscuits after watching a nappy ad!

    Does anyone else find that they crave things they didnt like before or have strange cravings... or that their sense of smell is heightened whilst on this diet?

    That's me all over :mad: .....Hi my name's Cathy and I'm a carb addict :break_diet: .... I'm ok as long as I don't have a taste, then it's a slippery slope ....

    Have to say, thankfully, I've not yet had any real cravings this time, so my head's deffo in the right place ... long may it last as I have a wee trip home at the end of the month and then a holiday to contend with :eek:

    Onwards and downwards ladies,
