View Full Version : Something special has happened.

While talking with my sister last night I realized that I, a former compulsive overeater of all things sugary, have absolutely no cravings for sweets. I don't know exactly when it happened, but it has. I not only am not craving cooked food, I am not craving sweets at all. The idea of baked goods sounds like a joke to me. I have been marvelling about it all night and woke with this thought today: I am free for the first time in my life - and it comes from inside of me - the proper nutrition has freed me. Alissa is so right. And I am humbled and so grateful.
I doubted. I did. I hoped when I read Alissa's book, but I truly did not think it would happen, and certainly not in less than 40 days.
I have been fat and driven by the need to binge for over three decades. I am still carrying some excess and will be less than half this size when all the false body melts.. but this is it - WE have finally found the real way to healing and sanity around food.

Woww... that's very inspiring to hear for so many of us. Just that it can happen is so hopeful for us to hold in mind, not that it will happen under 40 days for all of us, but that it can happen at some point: a freedom from old habits. Congratulations to you...
I was thinking that maybe you had a bit of candita and that it's all cleaned out and now you're not craving sweets or breads anymore because of it. Could be the calcium thing too. But it doesn't really matter why. You've made a huge break through that not many people will ever do, and that is to eat for nutrition. Amazing!

That's an amazing bit of insight. I am experiencing the same. Other sources of food which help retain calcium in the body, aside from sesame seeds, are plenty of leafy greens, which I have had in many a smoothie. I occasionally use sesame seeds, hemp seeds, almonds, as they also contain calcium. I don't worry so much any more about this or that nutrient though... I've been listening to my new body.
Since craving sweets seems to be a sign of calcium deficiency, isn't it ironic that during times when I had the highest dairy intake (where everyone freaks out if you miss it) I also had the highest sugar sweet tooth. Goes to show how much "usable calcium" is in dairy, huh?
