I hear you on the sugar thing... Literally the longer you are away from it the easier it becomes. Wouldn't dream of finishing the gym buying a lucozade never mind eating a extravagant desert after my main meal of the day. Now.... Down to where I find it difficult. Last night I unluckily woke up 1 hour after falling asleep. 2 hours into sleep most of your growth hormone is being secreted I believe not sure if this affects hunger... Well, when im working for power only its protein I crave... A quick protein shake ready by my bed and i'm satisfied to remain sleeping. During my 9 days (this is start of day 10) I have had 3 slip ups all being either before I fall asleep and then throughout the night or as I wake up. It really upsets me to be honest as throughout the day I am in control. I think the zero carbs before bed is a killer to but it winds me up. Day 3 I had a carton of cranberry juice... That was physiologically the worst but not psychologically. The sugar mass is ridiculous. The sugar made me feel satisfied though but I took it on board and never happened again. Its hard when you live with people who have cupboards and fridges ready for a bear to raid it in the night.... Then day 5 I had a carton of strawberry milk also high in sugar. Then last night I had 4 chocolate biscuits! In terms on sugar content it most likely wont be as high but it has annoyed me more than the other two!! On day 6 I had a banana by my bed and that worked. If I wake up and am literally like a angry new York bear ready to raid peoples cupboards and fridges for a glucose spike let it be from a banana...
