Yes! I do this all the time… I will go like, 2 weeks of working out and eating so well and start to feel really good. Thats when I start to have skinny days lol…Then, the weekend comes along or someones birthday and then I eat like crap and dont work out for a week. Its so annoying! I dont know how to motivate myself anymore lol

@bestbuddies: Are you close to your goal weight? The more fat you lose the more your body increases carb cravings as a survival mechanism to encourage you to eat more to preserve fat. Thankfully there are ways around this so our bodies don’t get to run the show!Wink

OH my goodness, I’m in the same fail boat right now.  I ALMOST hit my goal weight, got comfortable with my diet, and put 3 pounds back on over the weekend…in all deep fried food and wine.  UGH.  I don’t have a good suggestion, just venting with you…lol

I’m in a similar boat. I’m sure I gained back a couple pounds this weekend with the eating and drinking I did, but I haven’t stepped on the scale yet.

@bestbuddies: If I eat low protein / high carb throughout the day, all I want to do is eat an entire loaf of white fluffy bread with humous or taxini for dinner! (This experiment has been tried and tested many a time.. purely for public knowledge of course!Tongue out)

 

The trick is to eat regular protein meals. A protein shake at 4pm for example or even a protein bar. It really does stave away those carb cravings at night!

Yep, just did it to myself…

i think its important to remember that you’re never completely off track.  Just get back to it and do your best to undo the damage.  Next time you have a craving, go for a walk outside instead until the urge passes.

@bestbuddies: Wow.. hmm.. I left NYC back in 2004 so I cant even remember the brands now! Basically you’re looking for something with high protein, low fat and moderate carbs (you can deduct sugar alcohols if you know you’re not sensitive to them.)

A quick google search came up with these results:

I left before the low carb Snickers came out but it sounds divine! Laughing
