General weirdness: I was craving carb rich foods all day.  I found myself fantasizing about pizza on the way home.  This can mean a few things.  First, I shouldn't have had that diet coke with breakfast.  Diet sodas that contain artificial sweeteners are known to stimulate hunger and can actually make you crave sugar.  The second possible culprit is the beer.  Even a small amount of alcohol can turn me from a carb controlled machine to a wild, eating-everything-in-sight mess.  The third possibility is that my body is still going through a bit of withdrawal.  Eating carbs does give a quick energy boost before the inevitable crash.  This is part of the reason that they are so addictive.  Sometimes when you are feeling poopy you may find yourself craving bread.  The good news is that cravings generally pass after about ten minutes or so.  Try to hold out, drink some water or decaffeinated tea, and do something to keep yourself busy.  Cravings will lessen with every week that passes, so I can promise you that it will get easier.
