Who here does crazy spicing? How do you find it in terms of effectiveness?
I just bought the latest edition of the book (lost my first edition, and since I'm starting SLD again after a break, I felt it was appropriate) and was inspired to try it for extra credit as I've felt a lot of 'taste hunger' lately (though the ELOO still does a beautiful job of reducing my appetite). This is only my second day of crazy spicing all my regular food (including coffee, tea, soup, sweets etc) but I'm finding that it gives me that bit of extra psychological AS I need to avoid snacking for taste (rather than hunger). If I have something little, but crazy spice it, I find I don't want any more. I even stopped eating crazy spiced (sugarless; trying to avoid most refined carbs) ice cream and chocolate after two bites!
