6 months ago I was 165, working out every day, health nut.....depression hit, Now I am 195.... Im out of depression now, but still have that sweet tooth and cant get out of ssytem....what do you guys recommend?
Its going to be real tough for the first 30 days after that it will get a lot easier. For the mean time to help your sweet tooth try low fat fig newtons or a 100 calorie snack bar to calm you down. The real solution though is force, you have to force yourself to eat healthier in the end it will result in no more depression.
Sugar is the most successful drug being pushed http://www.rotten.com/library/crime/drugs/sugar/
"Withdrawal symptoms can include lethargy, tremors, headaches and depression.
Generally, these effects are slightly less intense than the similar withdrawal symptoms associated with caffeine."
try stevia its a natural sweetener. If you end up eating sweets eat them slow and enjoy them. most people eat junk food in front of the tv and by the time they know it they eating way more then they should.
Have a cheat meal or cheat day eat healthy all threw the week then on a day you choose eat junk or have a cheat meal pizza etc...
Get good protein in too
