I agree with the others, if you screw up and just taste, the cravings start again. i'm really goofed up now and need to get back to being strict. I have fatty liver, and I've found with any type of liver disease, it is very important to follow a diet that both your liver doc and your diabetes doc can live with. For instance I can't restrict fats too much or I get sicker because my liver will retain more fat, being fat starved. Eating fat causes me to dump fat. It also keeps cravings away. The trick for me is to eat fats that are healthy and not to raise my choleterol which is high because of my liver anyway. I just started pred. Seeing all the christmas goodies and having a family who loves this stuff, I goofed on some chocolate chips. When I strictly limit my carbs and just don't indulge at all unless its sugar free, I like snack pack vanilla puddings (chocolate +sugarfee=xlax), and fruit, though strictly I shouldn't have much of that at all.
Protein rich foods, high fiber low carb stuff, cheese if you are allowed, do alot to fill me up and get rid of cravings. I do eat some weight control low sugar oatmeal in the morning to get my sugar up because mine runs high and low, and that usually keeps me craving free and full past noon. I say, think hickory farms without the crackers or nuts if you can tolerate them. Take care and I have autoimmunestuff and I hope you feel better soon.
