  • I didn't always give into them, cause that would mean going out and getting whatever it is. But the simple healthy cravings I usually gave into like frozen oj or kiwis or tomatoes with salt.

  • Give into them in moderation -- For awhile i was craving bigmac's and with dd i craved onion rings and a milkshake--i would let myself have them once in a while--not everyday.

  • When I craved something I HAD to eat it... or I was grumpy. So i ate whatever I was craving. Of course we don't have alot of money so I had to go a couple of days before I got the craving fixed... but I still ate whatever I was craving and I only gained 35 pouns

  • If it's reasonable, then give in to it. Just don't go overboard and eat a whole chocolate cake, but a small piece is fine, and you probably won't be happy until you have at least a taste.

  • Oh, Honey, don't try to ignore them! I've been craving those watermelon laffy taffy's that have the little balck "seeds" on them. You know what I'm talking about? I went to 4 different convenience stores looking for those last night. No where has them! Not even Wal-Mart. Now I'm about to go crazy. lol.
