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.

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.
