Does anyone else have sugar cravings? I'm not talking about the taste or anything that superficial. And I'm not talking about white processed sugar. I'm talking about fruit for the most part. And I eat mostly organic seasonal fruit. Apples and oranges (and frozen blueberries) in the winter and everything else in the summer. After meals, especially protein meals, I get what I'm guessing is low blood sugar, and I've tried pushing through it, but I get really slow and dull feeling and almost kind of dizzy, kind of like my brain is going numb and just shutting down. If I eat some fruit, it really helps and it's really hard not to give in, I get kind of desperate feeling and (even more) disfunctional if I don't. I've been "medicating" like this to get through these "low" periods for years, probably 5 years or so. Even before CFS hit me full on, this was happening, I would always carry fruit with me and eat it in class. For the last year I've been eating a paleo sort of diet, except that I eat probably more fruit than would be considered strict paleo. And I eat chocolate and ice cream. But I cut out all grains and most starches. Here's a breakdown of a typical day of eating. I am very routine with my food and I'm lucky enough (given the unlucky circumstances) to have everything prepared for me from scratch. wake up Ground turkey (30g + protein dark meat turkey) sugar craving - 1-2 nectarine/peach/plum, some chocolate bowl of above ground fibrous vegetables fish or red meat (30g + fish 2-3 times per week, or buffalo or grass fed beef) sugar craving - 1-2 fruits ice cream craving - this one is intense and it feels like my body needs both sugar and fat at the same time, and ice cream hits the spot, it's really hard not to give in, as I start to crash really hard, and ice cream makes me feel better bowl of above ground fibrous vegetables another small bowl of veggies, or lately some yams or butternut squash big bowl of yogurt with blueberries or strawberries and honey (2.5 small cups whole fat organic yogurt, I eat this right before bed and can't sleep without my belly being full of this for whatever reason) sleep So I've read a lot of stuff about sugar over the years, and always wanted to try cutting it out, but I just can't seem to do it. Even for a day, I feel like I really need it. I try to eat the best forms of it as I can. There's so much BS in the diet world, it's hard to know what to trust. Like a lot of the candida diet stuff comes across to me as very misinformed. So I wind up feeling like I need to trust my body. Anyone have any thoughts? Anyone experience something similar?
