    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.
