I bought a 9.5 ounce container of dry-roasted, unsalted almonds from Whole Foods just a couple hours ago, and at this point they're almost gone. It says there are 10 servings in the container, 170 calories each. Did I seriously just eat 1,700... (more)
If you aren't already supplementing Magnesium, try 400-600 mg before bed. See if you stop binging (give it at least 6 weeks.) If not, it's likely psychological/emotional attachment.
Ok, I'll go first: anything starchy and sugary. The sweeter, the better. Combination of cream and caramel makes me drool like Tom (Jerry's friend). If I don't touch those for a while, the cravings seem to go. But if I so much as put a drizzle of... (more)
