So finally getting back to training after a year of full on studying (and the poverty and poor diet that comes with it) I'm cutting my sugar intake majorly because it had skyrocketted. I seriously lived on coffee and coke all last year - plus acting school = major binge drinking. Now my body's got used to lifting again (didn't like it for the first few weeks) and I've shifted my diet back to a more healthy and helpful diet I'm starting to shed all the excess fat.
Only problem is, having cut the coke and chocolate and alcohol I've found myself finishing a full day of work and seriously craving sugar. To the point where I've succumbed a coupla times and polished off a whole packet of Starburst and stolen swigs of coke. Awful.
I'm thinking it's because my diet is now much better, but is still lacking any kind of consistency. Working two casual jobs with random hours means breakfast, lunch and dinner rarely happen in any routine fashion. So I get to certain points in the day where my body's just needing some kind of fuel, and naturally going for the quick fix it's used to.
Any advice on curbing these cravings?
