See, I don't see those cravings as an "addiction" at all. Seems perfectly reasonable that when a sufferer's body is experiencing profound exhaustion (comparable to marathon runners' after a race) it would legitimately need a food easily converted into energy. I know my PEM/PENE has been so severe at times I spent hours barely able to breathe. I would take long pauses between each breath as I gathered the energy to take another. Personally, I'd understand if during those moments of near shut down my body is more focused on survival than "well-established" ideas of what's good or bad for us. In other words, because my approach does not align with mainstream nutritional wisdom you've concluded I'm not actually listening to my body; I'm just another poor gullible sufferer tricked by listening to her brain. Those familiar with my unfolding recovery story are no doubt giggling as they read this. Appreciate the advice but I'm good, thanks!
