Carb cravings are both physical and mental, but you already know this. The physical cravings can be dealt with a lot easier than the mental ones. The further we get away from carbs the less the cravings, they say. Carbs are addictive and we all deal with that addiction in our own ways. I believe the menal carvings come with a lot of built-in guilt, a mulit-edged sword for sure. Sort of a complex carb/complex guilt situation. If our mental state is already fragile guilt only fuels whatever is bothing us. For some of us it is a very serious situation that cannot just be glossed over. For, I would think, someone with your approach to their health it is more of a bump in the road. Perhaps the spring is just wound too tight. I mean, it is not like you work where you are exposed to flour, sweets, and overly-happy people! I have always preferred jobs where I was able to actually help someone as opposed to just helping my employer. I live where there are a lot of sweets around and it does wear you down. It feels good to say no to temptation and tell yourself that you are in control. The only thing I think you can do is look at what is going on in your life and see what is 'undone' and do it, whatever that means and remind yourself that this is a day to day situation and no matter what you did yesterday today is another chance to do it the way you think is right for you. We all will pay the price for these periods of 'carb insanity' in our own ways- suck it up and don't give up......
