Up until now I have had no problems with cravings at all and when I have had the slightest urge to eat something incredibly awful I can usually resist no problem.
This week my cravings have been on my mind 24/7, I want one of everything and then to do it all again! I have been feeling really unhappy and I'm wondering if my cravings are trying to act as comfort food. I had my usual weekly cheat meal but felt horrible afterward and today I have eaten the leftovers which I would usually just throw away to prevent temptation.
It's sort of getting me down that I can't just eat everything I want which sounds ridiculous but I find myself feeling upset that I can't indulge because I am naturally very very greedy and unhealthy!
For me, nothing works in controlling these cravings - drinking water, eating an alternative, distracting yourself etc.
I know it is a mental problem and I don't actually need this food but it's just a case of knowing I can't have it making me irrationally feel like I need it.
I was thinking of having a full on cheat day to just get rid of my cravings but I suspect this is a bad idea, not because it'll ruin my progress but because it won't get rid of the cravings!
Any advice? It's not like I am actually eating awfully all day it is just usually at night time the cravings come but the thoughts are controlling my head all the time.
