My confession.

I *think* I'm addicted to bread and bread products.

I don't know if it's because I'm southern, or just a natural bread lover...but I've noticed it's bad.

Toast, wraps, sandwiches, breadsticks, pizza crust, etc.

Everyday. I eat bread everyday. Most of the time, I try to eat whole wheat or honey wheat but sometimes I can't.

What can I do to help this?

Plan meals that don't include bread. Try a protein shake for breakfast. A craving for carbs usually indicates a lack of energy fuel for your body.

This might sound crazy - but I've never made a shake. I wouldn't know where to begin :-/ lol

I dont even think it's me craving it - it just feels like I should eat it...with EVERY meal!

Sandwiches are the worst. I eat them for lunch almost everyday.

There's nothing wrong with bread in moderation! I've definitely noticed that the more carbs I eat, the more I crave, but I also don't feel well if I don't eat carbs at all. This is a pretty interesting article on sugar "addiction": http://www.marksdailyapple.com/sugar-cravings/#axzz285muNTCH

There's a post in here called "Wheat Belly" and the article really gives good insight about WHY we're addicted to breads.

I have a magic bullet so I put 1 banana and enough strawberries to fill. Then fill in with soy or almond milk a little protein powder or peanut butter. Then blend. Sometimes I add chocolate syrup

I'm gonna have to try something like that.

I'm not a breakfast person, at all. I HATE eating in the mornings. So most of the time I settle for a bowl of cereal or toast.

Maybe if I just have a shake, it wont kill me as much. Lol
