If you were a raw vegetarian for years and got tired of cooking while a week or two into Paleo diet, why the cheese sandwiches and candy bar instead of raw vegetables? I wouldn't see that as a detox issue, but rather poor electrolytes / digestion... (more)

I have had success with using fruit to cut my sugar cravings. Other thing is are you eating because you are bored or are you actually hungry? I dont like fasts or cleanses personally and just eat a grape rather than a bit of chocolate.
