Welcome Jason. I went through that also, I hadthe shakes for 3 months, I'm thinking it was a carb/sugar withdrawal and my BG levelling to a normal level. Cravings are huge though. I get angry sometimes too kknowing there is something I can't eat. But it eventually passes and we carry on.

It definitely takes a while to go through "withdrawal." Even now, if I cheat and have something carby or sugary, I'm looking at at least a day of cravings again.

Now when I'm craving something I shouldn't have, I grab a couple pieces of bacon and I'm good :)

Welcome!

If you are willing to use artificial sweeteners, you can still have 'sweet' treats. If you take a look at the recipes here you can have things like pumpkin pie, muffins, donuts, etc. The Netrition website sells several types of zero carb, calorie and fat syrups, even chocolate, strawberry and others that you can use to 'frost' such things as donuts and muffins. And if you don't want to do any baking, there is always Breyer's CarbSmart ice cream in vanilla and chocolate which you should be able to get at your local Walmart or grocery store.

Welcome to the forum.
