I’ve been working on a juice fast for about a month now and still I have these overwhelming craving for food. Things I loved to eat but are not good for me. Like Pizza, ice cream, soda, cake, and yes, cookies.
I have about three juices drinks a day and I really try to have 4 glasses of water. I find when I drink the water I don’t get the craving for the things I should not be eating. I also am a snacker. I love snacks but they have done me wrong over the years. hahahaha
I try things like dried fruit now and nuts and raisins. Most days I am good but most days I am not and I fail. The failures are beginning to make me want to give up and say I can’t do this. I was even contemplating surgery for the weight lose. *sigh*
Surgery would be the last result for me, if any at all. You know there is all this talk about the Gastric Bypass and the Bariatric surgeries. They have been success rates but there are also the side effects. All I want is to lose all this weight and keep it off once and for all.
I feel like I am in a battle for my life and I am losing it day by day. It matters not how much I say I will not eat this or that I always end up with it at the end of the day. I am at a lost and don’t know where to turn for some real help. I am beginning to think I may have an eating disorder.
