I've really been trying hard today to stick to my diet after seeing my nutritionist this morning... It's so hard!! All day long I cannot stop thinking about this chocolate muffin I have in my car. I haven't eaten it and have been trying to have high protein low carb snacks instead, but it's so over powering sometimes I feel like I'm going to cry because I want it so bad and know I cannot have it!
What do you do when you are craving something and it's not within your diet restrictions?
I keep that stuff out of my house. Otherwise, I'd never be able to resist it all the time. There are a few things we have here that can satisfy a craving but won't kill the carbs for me, like low-fat puddings or jello mousse cups. I also have soy chocolate ice cream bars that are low-carb.
I also found some things that really satisfy my sweet tooth, but aren't necessarily low carb (up to 20 grams per serving) like raspberries, blueberries, nectarines (mmmm!) or blackberries.
They're high in fiber, too.
It may not sound at all like it would fill the craving, but it really does.
Oh, and of course all that stuff plus a lot of water.
Throw the muffin away! Or give it to someone else to eat. I try not to have stuff around that I can't have. Also I try to give myself stuff that I love that I can have guilt-free, like bacon & eggs. I know that's not healthy either, but at least it will keep my sugar low and not hurt the baby. Also, I like to eat a "dessert" at night-a baked apple stuffed with raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla and topped with unsweetened cream that I whip. The apple actually winds up tasting pretty sweet without sugar and it's good for you! Google "diabetic desserts" for other good ideas. It sucks, but remember it's temporary. I also really want a glass of wine, but have to wait for that too.
