In my adult ,savoury things that are nor good for you such as crisps, chippy dinners, curries etc were ALWAYS my downfall. So when I started eating healthily last April( and shed my 2 and a half stone by November) I pretty much stopped eating " fattening" savoury foods. I have NEVER in my life , not ever! However, when I started eating healthily, I also cut out any full sugar carbonated drinks ....all of them and I switched to DIET drinks. For me, I felt that giving it all up at the one time was too much of a change. Small achievable goals. Anyway, I just couldn`t give up the "fizz" and I drink a lot of liquid, as I have stated in previous posts( due to medication). I also had quit smoking ( still off the fags). Anyway, since I started this healthy eating plan and when I fell by the wayside at Christmas when I took ill........all I ate was sweet things. And I just kept going. And ended up fatter again! Anyway, since starting again with you folks, has helped me.
Here is my dilemma. Why am I now craving sweet things when I never did before? I am also unsure still if diet carbonated drinks are bad for you or not. I must note here that I do drink loads and loads of water a day. I just like the diet juice for my fizz kick. I have tried the whole diluting sugar free juice and adding sparkling water and it just doesn`t cut it for me.
I am NOT diabetic, my thirst is a result of medication and the fact that I do not drink tea or coffee or even booze at this moment. Not keen on fresh fruit juice or smoothies either. I am a fussy pest of hell!
