Dealing With Your Delicate Diet Cravings

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ January 27, 2008

There are some issues a male blogger without any education or experience in medicine and health just shouldn’t be asked about. And yet it still happens! Remember this blog post when I got asked about whether livin’ la vida low-carb will prolong your period. Uh, riiiiiigght! I know all about that kinda stuff, you know, so I’ll just whip out my pat answer and give it to ya. HA! No, I needed to get my female low-carb blogging friend Regina Wilshire from the “Weight of the Evidence” blog to help me out on that one.

With that said, in Episode 24 of “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb On YouTube,” we’ve got another one of those “girly” questions–how do you handle those intense cravings around your time of the month? AAAAAACK! Not again!!! LOL! Seriously, I wouldn’t even begin to try to understand what those cravings are like or how to combat them, but I know someone who does. And she just so happens to co-host my YouTube videos with me–the beautiful and talented Christine (that’s my darling wife, ya’ll!).

Ironically, when we shot this video, Christine just so happened to be on her TOM (no, that’s not her boyfriend, TOM is short for “time of the month”). So it wasn’t very hard for her to talk about his subject so freely and openly on camera. She did most of the talking since it’s that woman thang, ya know?

Learn how to tame those c-c-c-cravings in today’s video:

I wasn’t a complete mute in this video and shared from my own experience about how to tackle general cravings when you are livin’ la vida low-carb. Christine verified that some of the strategies I shared with how to deal with those kind of cravings also help with the special once-a-month female cravings, too. She did such a GREAT job in this video and I’m so proud of her (right, honey, you did good…is that what you wanted me to say? Yes ma’am!). :P
