What can I do to curb the cravings of sugar and carbs?

I have a serious serious addiction to sugar and carbs. Like it's overpowering me. All I want is bagels, bread, cereal, pasta, grits, rice, potatoes, etc..
Currently breastfeeding my 2 mo old baby girl. Been battling thrush for a month. Feeling rundown. Stressed and irritable. Milk supply is suffering.
What can I do to curb cravings and fight this? Gentle detox ?

GIRL eat those carbs! Your brain runs off of them. Look into McDougal. Healthiest long term diet around! And you load up on starches!

You do need to get rid of the processed carbs though. Also heavy fats can feed candida

Everything is marketed to work against you. Not just food, but in all areas of life. Your best defence is to be inspired by a partner who needs you to be their best friend (maybe for life, so fitness & health is all important).

As such, making heathy food that taste better than sweets, mixed with fun & achievements, you feels better, sex gets better, you have more fun & energy, & your view on everything is better.

If you can make this taste good, even cold, your on the right track!

Good luck!

Following. I think my friend has Candida also

Probio5 from plexus will work for the Candida. Without a good probiotic nutrient absorbtion becomes impaired resulting in an environment and breeding ground for bad gut flora or yeast to grow causing many ailments for you to feel that can also be diagnosed as something else

Laurie Leach

Me too. It’s Candida.
I have a discount group and we have natural tincturea and much more at discount prices

On side note your family is beautiful and on another side note I’m really bad w sugar also. My son just turned 5 months and I was like worse around 2-3 months.

You need heavy probiotics and really to try to cut out anything that activates thrush.

Erica Boyle
E

Take a daily probiotic! And eat yogurt with live probiotics and kefir drinks!
Try to cut out as much sugar as you can because yeast feeds on sugar. For thrush ive heard you can treat it with colloidal silver! Both safe for you and baby. As for your supply if you need any advice my inbox is open! I breastfed my son for almost 2 years and going on almost a year with my daughter. Around 2 months your milk will start to regulate so feeling less full can be normal. Foods that help boost your supply - brewers yeast, flax meal or seed, oatmeal, and they have sell teas that help too! Mothermilk tea from traditional medicines always helped boost me up.

Genitain violet also works for thrush!

I wouldn't recommend a detox while breastfeeding because whatever your body detoxs can transfer to the milk

Please look into homeopathy. The right remedy could REALLY help you with all of these symptoms.

Try replacing sweets with vitaminc. When I take large amts ofc, my cravings go down.

Ketogenic diet! I was out of control and it saved me.

Jessie Cummins

I would recommend a consultation with a skilled homeopathy to help you fight the cravings and the thrush. Boost probiotics and purge your house of sugar and refined carbs. It will improve the health and well being of both you and your daughter for many years to come. You could also look into food grade diatamaceous earth and see if that might work for you.

Sarah Kaufman

The foods you are craving are food for the Candida, which is a yeast, which is basically thrush. Candida crave sugar, you crave sugar, it's a bit strange to realize You are Not totally in control of your cravings. You are in a downward spin, the ONLY THING THAT HELPED ME was a complete change I what I keep in the house. No processed carbohydrates, no sweets, no candies, no chips, no cookies. Complete life change not a diet, not something temporary, not a magic pill.
I agree with sara here that you should see a homeopath for the thrush and purge the house of sugar and processed carbs. And I don't say that lightly, it's not easy in the least, if it was everyone would do it. You ever tried to kick a 6 pack a day mtn dew habit? You will feel worse coming off of the sugar but that's the Candida dying off.

Can you switch to eating sweet potato brown rice quinoa whole grain pasta whole grain sprouted bread oatmeal.. I think you need carbs if your nursing just better ones. And make green smoothies.

I had the same issue until a year ago when I took a chance and tried the Shred 10 which is a ten day body reset. It was the best thing I could have done and have made so many healthy lifestyle changes. I would love to tell you more. It is not about weight loss, but about Whole Foods and healthy living guidelines. A new one is starting right after the new year if you have interest.

Parasite cleanse yourself. Its parasites that crave the sugars not YOU. Also take a herbal formula for your pituitary gland. If you constantly itch/gnawing of the jaw/Craving starchy foods then its a sign you are loaded with parasites. Even your pancreas could be involved with not breaking down these sugars properly in the first place. Fruits and vegetables are simple sugars easy to metablize. You also have the adrenal gland connection with sugar metabolism (Cosrtisol) so even consider taking something for your adrenal glands.

I have had 4 kids. It happens to me after every child. It resolves itself. I think it’s normal. I can’t eat enough around that time. All the hormones I think is the cause. Good luck. Your not the only one. I have a 4 month old and I have passed that stage. Good luck.

Oh my goodness you all are seriously awesome!!! Thank you for all the suggestions! I know what I need to do now the problem is implementing everything and sticking to it and not caving. (Something I'm not very good at) Ugh lol

Ugh. I disagree with all the carb lovers. Not every body can live off carbs. They raise the blood sugar as much as a candy bar would. I have blood sugar issues and have horrible issues when I eat carbs. I bloat, joint pain, headaches, tiredness, the carbs she's talking about are turned to straight sugar. My best advice is to cut them out cold turkey. Cut off the sugar and processed carbs completely. You'll go through the withdrawal headaches and cravings for about 3 to 5 days and then you'll feel better. It gets easier if you can make it through a week. If you eat carbs, let it be a whole food. As long as you're getting enough calories for breastmilk, cutting processed food won't hurt you.

Thrush has been a battle I faught for a long time with my son 8 months. Tried everything and it just kept coming back. Changed my diet, and that helped for a little while as long as I was super strict with it. When I wasn't it came back. Used all the products to kill it. Some worked some didn't but it kept coming back. Something had to give. The cravings where real and hard. I found something that worked for them. Once I got my body not physically craving the sugars then I could work on my mind. A tool is just that. Something to help you. It doesn't do the work for you. And you have to be ready to use it. I found a combination of things helped. Something to regulate my blood sugar. Something to fix my gut. Something to help my mood swings. Pray you can find what works for you too. You know the issue, you just have to find what works for you to fix it.

If you will change your diet, like Paleo/gaps/keto... Your brain will get the healthy fats/proteins needed to help stop the merry go round... You will find that you don't need a lot of sweet, bc, your brain will be calmer and you will feel a lot better! (; Also, alison's tip is very helpful to get this sugar monster under control...

Plexus Slim and Candida reduction helped me kick mine

Jen Harmon

Is the Candida reduction a plexus product as well?

Sophie Thacker 3 years

To reduce Candida, I had to be mindful of my diet, add enzymes to kill the Candida, then add probiotcs to repopulate my gut and prebiotics to feed the probiotcs. I chose to use Plexus for these supplements as I got all the above benefits in one supplement.

I'm happy to walk you thru exactly what I did, step by step, if you want!

I dont think carbs are the enemy we naturally crave them because we need them. Lots of vegetables and fruits will help your cravings:)

Watch the YouTube video by Barbara Oneil The Importance of Water and Salt. She will tell you how to take the salt and water to reap the most benefits. Taking Celtic sea salt or Himalayan pink salt along with plenty of water can help fight yeast/candida. The water and salt helps rehydrate the body also. My daughter who is still nursing an 18 month says the water and salt combo helps boost her milk supply. One should eliminate caffeinated beverages as they act as a diuretic and rid the body of water and minerals.

All the sugar and carbs are using up magnesium. Healing from childbirth and all the demands on the body due to breast feeding require more magnesium. It takes 28 molecules of magnesium to process one molecule of glucose. You should join the Magnesium Advocacy group and learn more about magnesium and the co factors that help mag work at it's best. There is also a spin off from that group that you can join for moms. It's called Mag Mommies. Magnesium may be our most vital mineral and a deficiency in it can wreck havoc on the body. We need mag to help deal with stress and stress is also a symptom of magnesium deficiency.
