Re: When Do The Food Cravings Stop???

That's a really good question. I found that if I don't take an active role in curbing my eating, I will keep on eating the same way I was while on the medicine---like I've just adjusted to my new eating habit. I get used to the taste of all the sweets I crave on the medicine, and it's like I'm addicted to the sweetness even after the medicine is removed.

Re: When Do The Food Cravings Stop???

you just have to "fool" your brain. If you crave chocolate, then have a bowl of choclate cocoa pebbles, if you just have the munchies, keep fruit, carrotts, celery, pretzles.....non fattenting foods... try to go for not so awful foods. it's not a matter of cravings gooing away, you've become used to eating all the time...you have to break that cycle, it's going to suck for a bit, but you're theonly one who can do it.
