@belize44 did you manage to find a way to kick your sugar/carb cravings? I have the exact same issue which I think is contributing towards immense weight gain. Every time I try to cut carbs and sugar out of my diet I crave them even more, I'm sure my body is reliant on them. I just read a few posts where other people have been diagnosed with non diabetic hypoglycemia. I had a severe crash earlier this year that had all the hallmarks of a hypoglycemia attack. Like you and @wabi-sabi I will feel terrible until I eat some form of sugar/carb.

I used to attend a NHS fatigue clinic and I was advised to eat small healthy meals regularly. Unfortunately I wasn't told why amongst other things. Since then, I've found out it keeps blood sugar levels consistent.
Well, it's not for everyone, but I recently started the Carnivore diet, where I eat nothing but meat. My SO started two months ago and is looking and feeling great! I am not sure how long I can keep it up, because the cravings still persist, although they are definitely diminishing. Like you, I am not sure if I can survive without sweets and carbs but am willing to try this for a month.

Thanks for the update @belize44!

I’m glad to hear your cravings are diminishing on your new diet, it gives me hope.

I will try and push trough with Keto. I’ll see if there is anything I can take to reduce sugar cravings until I adjust.
