Sugar craving solutions? by Fernand Point - Wed, 19 Oct 2016 03:37:41 EST ID:/c0Kv1Pv No.149672 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I have problems sleeping and often get late night cravings for food that consume my entire existence.

So my dumb ass got in the habit of getting those cheap (2$) "happy hour (2-5am on weekdays) shakes form steak and shake as a way to satisfy my tubby ass and silence the all consuming hunger. Well initially it was a nice treat once in a while, but I'm at a point now where it's like the clock strikes 2 and I'm ravenous, and can't get that damn dairy sugar slop off my fucking mind.

I actually managed to drive by the steak and shake today, getting some frozen (no sugar added) fruit, and it actually did the trick quite nicely.

I want to start cutting sugar out, but I still get these moments where nothing really seems to satisfy quite like sugar does. I'm nowhere near fat yet, which is why I've been letting myself go like this, but it's about time to reign in this bullshit in favor of a better lifestyle.

Do you guys have any suggestions for foods I could use to satisfy my cravings without completely bombing my system with sugar?

Kombucha has a bunch of BS pseudoscientific health benefits but it is much lower in sugar than a shake or soda. A bottle of the stuff I get is like 2 grams per serving (2 servings per bottle) A bottle of coke has 39 grams of sugar, by comparison. It's pricey though because of the health marketing, so I don't buy it often.

You could also just drop some lemon/orange slices in a pitcher of water to give it a little bit of flavor. It's not going to be nearly as sweet as a shake though. Infused water is another thing people write a bunch of BS health blogs about, but at the end of the day it's tasty and has virtually no calories. Tea with a moderate amount of sugar, or even another sweetener, would still be better for you than shakes.

Sugar snap peas are a nice sweet snack, frozen grapes are great too. A pretty filling/easy savory meal is to just toast a piece of bread and top it off with a spreadable cheese, herbs, tomato, and a little bit of oil, salt, and pepper. That's an easy lunch/midnight meal.

Homemade crepes are easy, and as long as you have some portion control there's no reason you can't make them from time to time. Eat them with fruit and creme if you prefer something sweet, eat them with eggs, herbs, and some meat/veggies if you want something savory.

like, considering it could even be called "bacon". Its much the same way chicken nuggets somehow get away with not putting quotation marks around the "chicken". oh and the "cheese", and "bread". i mean...heh...its all just total fucking garbage. its 100% illegitimate, quasi-food made of the kind of stuff which should lead to it being a fraction of the price of what it really is

and people say fast food is cheap - affordable. for what youre getting, youre overpaying.

Make it with bacon bits in. Use a smoked cheese (bavarian or applewood) plus something else but importantly, make the cheese sauce in the pan you fried the bacon in without washing it inbetween; use the bacon fat as the base for the roux.
You also need to add jalapenos at the end for an edge, else it's too rich.
That's all I can tell you; I can't give away all my secrets here.

You can also pull a Heston, and make a lime or lemon jelly that you cube into tiny little cubes and add to it for extra richness-cutting acidity (like he did with his mash).

But when you reach that level you are getting dangerously sexual about your food, and not everyone feels comfortable with that.

As others have suggested, try different cheeses and meats. Bacon is great depending on the cut, although I'd just buy some brats and dice those up. Add some hotsauce! The dairy will make it more mild but holy shit spicy mac n cheese is the best.

Cheese is totally subjctive. I like a sharp cheddar with some type of gouda but the world is your oyster. I think next time I make some ill use that combo the sprinkle some feta on top.

To add crunchy texture, if that's your thing, it doesn't fucking matter what you use. Personally I'm not a fan of panko in this case, but really just use whatever you have on hand or is super cheap.

I like adding veggies to my mac n cheese, namely onion, garlic, and some type of green. A little bit of spinach is fucking dope, as it is pretty mild but nutritious.

Really this is a dish that can always be tweaked and improved to your liking so go balls out and enjoy it

When I wasn't as lazy and still cooked, I used to make this peanut sauce for my homemade damprangs.

It was something like:
peanut butter
rice vinegar (not the flavored sweet shit, just plain)
hot sesame oil
soy sauce
scallions
garlic
black pepper
sesame seeds

If you play around with the measurements, you might just find heaven.

Ooh, Iove you /nom/! Great ideas! I will be trying them out for sure. I initially asked because I wanted ideas for myself, but...

My dad, who lives in another country, just messaged me this morning that he's feeling better health-wise, and will be able to come to spend the next week with me at my place as we planned, before a pinched nerve his spine started causing him pain and numbness in one of his legs and brought his trip into question. He's 61, so he's just starting to get usual, age-related heath problems, which he opened up to me on Skype he finds hard to accept, and scares him shitless. He even cried.

So while he's here, I want to indulge him as much as I can. He's the one who got me hooked up on peanuts, peanut butter, cooking in general, as well as eating well and exercising. (He was also the role model for my alcoholism and weed abuse.)

I give exactly 0 fucks if you think this is a sob story not belonging to /nom/.
I just want to insert happiness and wellbeing in the form of peanut butter through their mouths into 2 people - my dad and me.

None of that matters. People know what you're referring to when you say "Yugoslavia."

If you want to play the pedantry game someone could just as easily get butthurt about people saying "America" and "Americans" when what they mean is "The United States of America" and "Citizens of the United States of America." Technically anyone from any a North or South American country is an American.

Anyway, this is a retarded discussion to be having but we'll go into it anyway.
>If you want to play the pedantry game someone could just as easily get butthurt about people saying "America" and "Americans" when what they mean is "The United States of America"
No, no you couldn't. Someone could not just as easily get butthurt over that since America/USA still exsits and is "America" is commonly used shorthand for citizens of the united states. Yugoslavia and the USSR no longer exist, thus describing people as from "Yugoslavia" or from the "USSR" would be incorrect. It would be like describing your grandparents cuisine to be "13 colonial" or some shit. Furthermore, Yugoslavia was an uneasy union of ex Austrio-Hungarian territory that got bundled up and squeezed out by the Russians to act as a Union state for the slavs. Slavs are ethnically, religiously, and culturally diverse. Somewhere like Macedonia barely saw freedom from Turkish/Ottoman influence for hundreds of years whereas Slovenia and Croatia had more Venitian influence as well as the Austro-Hungarians who controlled them for hundreds of years. The point I'm trying to make here (which I made >>149324 is that trying to describe cuisine as "Yugoslavic" doesn't make much sense.

I mean, the fact that these guys were butchering each other over the union should be a testiment to the fact that "Yugoslavia" was never really meant to exist, let alone be used as a term to describe cuisine. Like seriously just go with "Balkan" and avoid any mention of dead economic unions.

Michel, I'm pretty old. I was born and raised Yugo. Avoiding it in a thread specifically about childhood is impossible. I dind't even think about it, it was a natural description. Hence the surprise and regret about the reactions. In fact, avoiding mentioning Yugoslavia at all would be avoiding half my lifetime on this planet.

You, and others, are politicizing my childhood food memories. Stop it. It's Balkans. It's Alpha Centaury. It's Middle Earth. It's whatever you want it to be now, today. But it's my story. And I get to name things in my story.

Clam chowder, motherfuckers. My grandfather was a first generation immigrant, but he could make a chowder better than any yankee (swamp or otherwise).

Got any food nutrition hacks? I've been listening to an AM talk host at night for the last month or so and he's always harping on the benefits of dark green leafy vegetables, fish, eggs, etc...

Got any nutritious food protips?

Justified informed judgement is justified.

Unjustified anger at other people's misinformed judgements is unjustified.

No.

I need no science to do the thing every living creature since the unicellular common ancestor of us all did, and every other of its offspring millennia after millennia, leading to you, me, my dog, the tick on my dog, the grass we stepped on, and the escherichia in my bum did.

Western diets often lack fiber and potassium. There aren't any ultradense sources of these two nutrients -- high concentrations of potassium are extremely bitter and cytotoxic, while eating 20 grams of fiber in a meal is obviously impractical. You need more potassium and fiber than any other micronutrients, but less than macros (carb, fat, protein). In other words, there's no "kale" for potassium.

They're generally found in fresh vegetables and fruits but tend to be lost during processing -- skins and rinds are discarded, and potassium, which is highly soluble, is lost during boiling and soaking when the liquid is discarded. Not always, of course.

But there's a case to be made for eating whole fruits and vegetables throughout the day -- thry contain things we often overlook.

Oh, and because someone will want a source:

>The 2004 guidelines of the Institute of Medicine specify an RDA of 4700 mg of potassium for adults,[21] based on intake levels that have been found to lower blood pressure, reduce salt sensitivity, and minimize the risk of kidney stones. However, most Americans consume only half that amount per day.[22] Similarly, in the European Union, particularly in Germany and Italy, insufficient potassium intake is widespread.

Google is your friend. Potassium protects against hypertension and heart disease -- on its own, it may explain many surprises of the surprising effectiveness of diets based on nutritionist voodoo -- it gets people to eat their vegetables.
