This is my least favorite part of any change in the foods I am “allowed” to eat. Honestly, though, this part usually comes much earlier than week two. So, obviously, I am doing something “right” this time around. The odd thing (to me) is that I typically crave sweets (cake, brownie, cookie, candy, anything really sweet – and bad for you) but this time I am craving noodles. Yes, I know, how strange, right? Noodles. What I really want is a plate of chow mei fun from this great little place down the street…and maybe a spring roll. I know, of course, I should not eat that (nor will I) but it sure sounds delicious.
In an attempt to “quench” this craving without wrecking my day (or week) I went out and bought whole grain pasta. I will prepare it later…actually maybe I will prepare that yummy mac-and-cheese I posted yesterday. I know that is a far stretch from Chinese food, but maybe (hopefully) the pasta will make my noodle craving go away.
I just keep “cheerleading” in my head telling myself I can do this – I will do this! I am anxious to see the number 2 in the front on this Sunday’s weigh in, and I am only half a pound away from that happening!
When you are making healthier food choices what do you crave? How do you put the kibosh on those cravings?
