I am struggling to stick to my protocol because when I get hit with the sugar and flour urges I can’t find a thought that I can stick to to make it through. I always surrender to the compulsion. Two years ago I successfully gave up drinking so it is confounding to me how I am unwilling to ride out the urges when it comes to binging on sugar and other forbidden items. For most of my life I’ve been able to maintain my ideal weight, but since I gave up drinking I’ve put on 15 pounds.
I know you’ve probably provided this in the reams of material you offer, but what are the thoughts to ride out the cravings and stick to the plan?
