I find this really interesting, because I seem to be your polar opposite: since starting SLD, desserts have fallen almost totally off my radar. As I write this, I've got half a brownie (a really, really good brownie) sitting stale in its bag in the kitchen because I never finished it, 3/4 of a cherry pie in the garbage (it started going moldy before I got back to it) and three half-full pints of haagen dazs in the freezer. Sweet things just no longer hold my interest. I can have a pie in the kitchen, and after the first slice, it just never occurs to me to go back for more. Two days later I look over and think, "oh, hey, I forgot about this pie sitting here. Eh, maybe later."
And let me be clear: I have always been a full-bore dessert binger. This is a profound shift for me. A pint of ice cream used to be gone in an hour; now it lasts a week or more, if indeed it gets finished at all.
Now, I should say that there are other foods that I'm still helpless toward. My soda addiction remains in full force, though eating less in general means my consumption has dropped a bit, and with the weather getting a little milder here, I'm no longer going off on 44-ounce glugfests of sweet sugary relief from the heat. We all have our weaknesses. And I'm still trying to find my way around this new concept of "enough food," something I've never had to deal with before.
But my new indifference to sweet things is the main thing by which I measure the effectiveness of my routine. When I start to wonder whether this is still working, I look to the fact that after half a chocolate chip cookie I lose interest, and then I know that it is. I hope something like this kicks in for you as well, or that you find a similar measure of your own by which to confirm that it's not all in your head (something of which I am also sometimes convinced.)
But I suppose the real conclusion to draw is that SLD is going to affect everyone differently. The net results will hopefully be similar for most of us, but there's no "typical" SLD experience. Which speaks to the complexity of the systems of appetite and metabolism that we're dealing with here.
