Goodevening all I was just drifting off in thought yesterday and thinking about different people I know and how some of them can eat half a candy bar and be completely satisfied with no desire to continue eating. Then I know other people who can eat half a cake plus two quarts of ice cream and 8 oatmeal raisin cookies before they get the signal from there body that it is ok to stop eating now. There are times when I am in the catagory of the later but I have come to realise that it is not merely a craving or food preferance,no it is much more like a physiological need.When someone is having an asthma attack there body obviously signals them of the need for oxygen. The sugar cravings are on this level meaning that my body seems to be saying 'I need this immediately or I will be unable to continue on until you do give me this grandiose dose of sugar'.Luckily I am trim and very fit. Do any of you go through this where the sugar pleadings of your body seem to be far more like a physiological necessity than just a preferance or craving?
