Ok so gradually I have been able to phase out carbs. I would start with doing Paleo + dairy and then over time my demand for dairy products would go so I didn't need that either. So I was getting along really well until I was forced to eat carbs.... (more)

I can't really think of a situation where you are forced to eat sugar or carbs (maybe prison or the military, I guess). You might have to go hungry for a little while, yes, but there's always your next meal. Eating grains and refined sugars... (more)

Cravings really don't mean anything. There's a whole bunch of pseudo-scientific ideas around the ideas that cravings indicate nutritional deficiencies, not supported by real science though.

Eat fruit seasonally and as appropriate for where you live. For example, if bananas don't grow in the winter where you live, don't eat them.

I'm in the middle of a Whole30, and I've taken liking to dumping cacao powder on beef and saut??ed onions and the taste (not texture) is pretty close to dark chocolate. I'm Game...what about y'all?

A decent dose of fat: avocados, coconut oil and butter and sometimes I'll just have a bit of dark chocolate. Steak is effective with cravings too, odd.

Tabata - google it, briefly shown that short duration high intensity exercise is way more efficient. combine that with some intermittent fasting like 16/8 and a Paleo diet. Works for me.

This sounds cruel, but sometimes, I wait and take a long look at the people already eating that stuff, for example, if I pass a burger joint or bakery. Then I try to remember what I used to look like when I ate that stuff.

I'm also thinking hormones. Have you have a hormone panel done? Spotting can be a sign of excess estrogen (or lack of progesterone) and that can certainly feed into cravings.
