    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I seem to have most difficulty in 3 to 4 p.m. area. It does not matter what I eat morning, snack or lunchtime, I still crave either cookies, ice cream or other junk. Fruit does not help either, If I eat almost any kind of fruit I still want the other stuff. BTW protein seems to help as my main priority, whole grains taste good but I gain weight if I eat much of them. Any of you have similar problems & what do you do?

    I found that a fresh carrot, and or fresh baby spinach energized me and rid me of the craving. Also I will have a glass of lukewarm water. On days I am not at the office I nap or meditate for 20 minutes give or take.
