I've been thinking about your question - if I can give you any tips on what I've done when I've been stuck....thing is, looking at your page, it seems like we probably have different issues. It seems like yours are hormonal....I have issues with sugar being for me just like alcohol is for an alcoholic - I spend my energy working on making sure I don't eat that first bite. If I can manage that, I'm fine and I lose weight....
Have you heard of The Zone? The author is Barry Sears. His formula is too complicated to be practical - eat 9 g. of carbs for every 7 g. of protein and add 1.5 g of fat....!!! But he talks about how eating like that will keep you in the hormonal "zone". I'm wondering if tht might help you? I simplify it by eating equal amounts of protein and carbs, which is pretty easy to do if you plan ahead with the SparkPeople tracker. It really works to keep my carb cravings at bay. I start with 30 g. of protein per meal and add about that many carbs or a few more to balance the protein.
