I think most of us have been through that. Sometimes we get to feeling that it's not worth it and you feel fine for a while. then you notice the change and you get upset with yourself and decide to buckle down and then you restart and you feel bad and get ready to quit. The best advice i can give is to just try and remember what you feel like after you give in. just keep remembering that thought. It's feels so good when you give in, but afterwards you feel terrible physically and also mentally. Just remember that feeling and pass on it. if you feel like you have to eat to get over that feeling, just eat stuff you are allowed. It's not easy, but you can do it. just fight those thoughts and remember what you feel like when you do it right and how good you feel about yourself. As you see the results it gets easier and easier to stick with it. you can do it!

Don't beat yourself up for being human! I don't crave sweets often, but when I do, I reach for the stevia. I've found Truvia to be the best tasting. I've sprinkled it on my cottage cheese and added a little cinnamon & nutmeg and felt like I was being so naughty!

That reminds me...are pure extracts, like vanilla, orange etc, allowed?
