I can relate to the water drinking. I'd try not to buy sodas, otherwise that's all I'd drink, but my weakness was ice tea and then I switched to Crystal Light and then from there I switched to water. For whatever silly reason, I can't drink cold water, only room temp. I've been chewing on the extra apple pie gum, seems to help with my sweet tooth craving. It hasn't triggered a need for the real thing. 2910 days ago
I use to not drink water but I found out that once I started drinking it, I started to notice that I was thirsty for it. I love the club soda in a can from LaCroix...Lemon, Orange, Lime, or berry...no sugar or art. sweeteners. I think I like it because its in a can and its like having a soda! 2911 days ago
Hey your doing great! I know what you mean about snacks. I'm a snacker lol. Honestly with being diabetic i gotta have snacks between meals. But I found a few things that might work for you too. Buy Almonds for a snack, How to use them:
* For a filling and flavorful snack mist a baking sheet with cooking spray, toss on a handful of almonds, and bake at 400 degrees F. for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with cinnamon, or ground red pepper and thyme. They're said to fight cravings.
One more you could try is Gum, get fruity flavors not mint (mint will do the opposite). The fruity flavors and chewing tricks your brain into thinking your snacking. And the craving will pass.
Just some suggestions in case you do want a snack. But I gotta tell you good job on not eating anything. You have more will power than me lol. Oh and the lemon in the water excellent idea, i'm gonna try that, heard it aids weight loss too and cleanses your body. Your doing awesome! Keep up the good work
