What do you do when you really, really, REALLY need sugar but refuse to give in?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created December 17, 2011 at 12:25 AM

I have a major sweet tooth, but I have decided to not give in to them by "just taking a bite" or "having one piece of chocolate" (even if it is 100% dark chocolate)...I am trying to keep my carbs between 50 and 60ish grams a day. What do you eat to curb the sugar craving without grabbing sugary/carby things?

Nutritional maturity makes sense if we are dealing with the rational mind, but what we are dealing with is the rational mind trying to overcome insane metabolism. The mind can use strategies such as distraction, but insanity has to heal rather than mature.

Of course, there is also the possibility that you are simply not particularly glucose intolerant. You've never experienced the physiological process being asked about, so you think the poster must be referring to something else -- something trivial, which you think you must have mastered, but other, weak people haven't.

The question wasn't whether, but how. How do you foster your discipline? Maybe your answer is white-knuckling? When you put it that way, it makes you look lacking in resourcefulness rather than smug.

@JRAC, I don't know how it is for others, but whenever I have cravings I always know exactly what I'm craving. In my SAD days, it would be as specific as BQ chips or a particular flavor of ice cream. So, if I were craving fruit I would know which species. As I said, I don't if it's that way for everyone.

yes and no...i'm trying to NOT eat chocolate or "paleo ice cream" or anything...i guess its more of what can replace sugar/sweet or kill the craving without ingesting the sugar from paleo treats or fruits...i guess its more like what is good to kill the craving and not succumb to it knowing ill binge if i do. i know if i go on a walk as some suggested in that thread id just want it more haha that thread focuses more on avoiding SAD sweets and im talking about avoiding ALL sweets SAD and Paleo. very similar questions, but not quite the same.

I havent had THAT MUCH sugar over the last few months, but apparently cutting it out completely is driving me insane...dreams of cheeseburgers and milkshakes?! REALLY?!

Just eat your next meal, earlier. It's that simple. Eat your next planned meal one, two or even three hours earlier. If its after dinner, eat more of what you had for dinner. If there'e no dinner left, eat what you planned to make for breakfast the next day. Stay on course. Don't make extra drama out of your hunger. It's only hunger. Feed it. But feed it the correct thing.

Sour flavors work well when I'm really hungry for something sweet. I break out a bottle of fizzy water kefir or I have pickles or I eat a grapefruit.

If you are in withdrawal from a sugar addiction, there's no sure thing to distract the cravings. You might need to do an errand or have a long phone conversation and just let the feeling pass.

If you've been off sugar for a long time, you may have a deficiency of something but I'd still try something sour and see what happens.

If you are really hungry, eat. Protein has been shown in study after study to shut down hunger (and cravings in my experience). Keep something like hard boiled eggs around in case of emergency.

If you are not hungry and it's a craving (addiction), get your mind off of it if possible - have sex, go for a walk/run, read a book, dance, whatever works for you.

Lastly, you can try the overdose until you are sick trick - you won't want to eat it again. This happened to me with rasins. I used to love them. When I was very young (3 or 4), I snuck off behind our couch with a big bag of little boxes of rasins and ate them until I was really ill. I have never been able to eat them since. Caveat - this may or may not work for you.

When I was transitioning off sugar, a huge help for me was herbal tea. Peppermint, orange, blueberry -- the fruit teas especially were helpful because I felt like I was getting a little fruit juice, but without the sugar. Just read the label to check for sweeteners first.

That she is committed to giving up something she knows isn't good for her even when it is causing a temporary, but real, disturbance in her balance of mind?

@shah78 I'm happy for you, but "doing Paleo" sure didn't stop my cravings. Getting very sick every time I fell off the wagon is what finally did it for me.

I have found that the paleo diet eliminates such cravings. So I would once again say, try "doing" the Paleo Diet. I guarentee It.

nutritional maturity makes perfect sense to me. @shah78 you make some wonderful points

Are we talking chocolate ,or heroin here. I thought the question was about sweeets. Is this some sort of slang for heroin, like horse back in the sities?

Nutritional maturity makes sense if we are dealing with the rational mind, but what we are dealing with is the rational mind trying to overcome insane metabolism. The mind can use strategies such as distraction, but insanity has to heal rather than mature.

I eat 5 smarties (1/3 of a roll) or 2 sweet tarts. They are glucose (not sucrose or fructose) and it seems to knock out the annoying hunger I have sometimes after a low-carb meal, when my stomach is full (meaning I don't want any more of what I was just eating), but my stomach won't leave me alone.

Technically it still sugar, but it's only 2 carbs and it really helps me.

I know that this won't help if you're in the no-toothpaste crowd, but brushing my teeth with the mintiest toothpaste you can get pretty much ruins my desire to eat anything, no matter how much I was craving it before.

Black coffee works really well for me if I'm craving sweets or carbs.

Eat healthy fats like unsweetened coconut flakes. You can even roast them and they are DELICIOUS! I also like to pop olives in my mouth when I want a treat. Once again the fats help curve the craving.

Brief, intense exercise, even for just 5 or 10 minutes. This kills my cravings and appetite for a few hours.

If you're like most people and your sweet tooth kicks in before bed, then I recommend picking up some chocolate casein protein powder and making either a) a big casein milkshake with coconut milk or water and lots of ice in the blender (cold and frosty-like) or b) mixing a scoop or two into 1/4-1/2 cup of water and putting it in the freezer for 15-30 minutes (thick and pudding-like). It really does the job for me. I know protein powders (especially casein) aren't really good for everyone or maybe even anyone, but it really does do the job to get rid of a chocolate craving. I think it comes out better than eating a chocolate bar (which would keep me up all night long and also send me to the bathroom too many times).

Good for you for your determination! Would raisins be ok for you? High sugar but I still consider them natural so I eat them occasionally for the iron. Raisins got me out of my last sweet attack! Otherwise I'd go for regular fruit.

I don't.

It's called discipline.

Of course, there is also the possibility that you are simply not particularly glucose intolerant. You've never experienced the physiological process being asked about, so you think the poster must be referring to something else -- something trivial, which you think you must have mastered, but other, weak people haven't.

The question wasn't whether, but how. How do you foster your discipline? Maybe your answer is white-knuckling? When you put it that way, it makes you look lacking in resourcefulness rather than smug.

That's not helpful or supportive. Brutal honesty for the sake of brutal honesty isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Dave, my husband is always telling me that my criticisms are too subtle, and that I pull my punches. It's a failing of mine.
