OK. So I'm on week 3 of the Paleo lifestyle. I'm doing my best to remove all carbs or at least limit them to 25g/day. Due to my schedule, I sometimes eat some protein bars that have a lil carbs.
Lately I'm in the withdrawal phase. Wanting, craving, needing sugar. Seems to happen in the AM mostly???
I Need some suggestions on what I could substitute to meet my sugar cravings that is Paleo-friendly??
For some strange reason it's been a crazy craving for Peanut Butter and chocolate.
Totally agree with JeezLouise. Try cooking some bacon in the evening so it's ready for you in the morning - it'll satiate your cravings. When we crave sugar, our bodies are actually telling us we need more saturated fat in our diet. I also recommend coconut butter and dipping some celery or fennel in it to satiate the sugar cravings.
some of us seem to run better without eliminating all carbs. i obsessed over macros at first, but i struggled horribly emotionally and with food prep. now, i eat multiple servings of fruit, veggies, and often rice/potatoes. this keeps me feeling normal/not craving. do what works for you!
