  • I have the same problem, it's the demon inside! No seriously, you have to add protein to your diet; like nuts, legumes or beans, and all the rest. It'll help stop that craving.

  • if you stop eating them all together it makes it worse. eat what you wish in moderation. instead of medium or large fries, get a small. that way you still have your craving, just not as much.

  • its because they are friggin delicious. unfortunatley, they make me fat so i only eat one meal of carbs a week. all the rest of the time i only eat protein, fruit & veggies.

  • If you cut out the majority of your carbs and sugars for two weeks your tastes change, and your cravings will go away. Its just having the will power to go the whole two weeks. I'm on day two... and completly miserable lol wish me luck girls!!!!
