One of the hardest things for me with the Makers Diet is that I crave sugar. I didn't at first. I felt amazing. I still feel amazing, but I started having sugar cravings. Several of my friends that follow the makers diet have also had this craving. I'm not sure why, but I haven't figured out what to do about it! When I give in and have sugar, I feel awful!!! So my body doesn't exactly need the sugar but I haven't figured out what is lacking in my diet.
After a discussion with my dad, I found a list he referenced. It's a chart of what your body really needs when you are craving something. I tried several times to list it here, but I don't know enough about blogging to do that yet. Here is the Naturopathyworks website if you want to check it out for yourself. A lot of it really makes sense, and it gave me a lot of good ideas. I do have to say that I don't think some nuts and fruit aren't exactly going to cut it when I want a raspberry dark chocolate bar!
