Yep... I have found the same thing. I also noticed I have more energy and my mood is better. I do love baked goods, but I have cleansed myself off of them about this time of year for 2 years now and it really helps 'reset' everything. After a couple of days - no more cravings and all that extra energy... (not to mention the few pounds that mysteriously disappear)

I have noticed this too. Unfortunately right now I am on a sweet binge. Pretty much everyday. But maybe in about a month or so I will try to cut it out and/or down again.

Hi Suzy,

I wonder if taking a total break from sugar for a couple days would put an end to the cravings - a sort of reset, like Lisa said

I totally get this. I gave up drinking Soda the day I found out I was pregnant with my baby. I was rather addicted and because I lost my last pregnancy at 32 weeks I want to do everything to make sure this one makes it. But on the flip side I notice I don't want or need sweet things nearly as much anymore. I would prefer olives, or cheese to ice cream or cookies. Some say that this is just how my body is responding to the baby but I know it is reducing my sugar in take.

Hi. I'm new to the concept of the GAPS diet, so I don't know whether or not fruit is allowed. I'm curious - are you eating any fruit?

I cut out all sugar while on a candida diet to get rid of a chronic yeast infection, and I, too, found that I no longer craved sweets. It was glorious.

But once my yeast infection went away, I returned to eating some fruits (blueberries, figs, and apples). I've found that my yeast infection has returned, much to my dismay. So, I'm thinking of eliminating the fruits, but was curious as to whether your GAPS diet and your disappearance of sugar cravings includes an elimination of fruit.

Thanks!
Pamela
