  • Are you a sugaraholic?

    I've been off the blog for a while doing my own blog on the specific issues around sugar-starch addiction. If you are interested:

    I was a sugarbaby; meaning since I was born I was given lots of sugar, and ate lots of processed foods, especially sweets until I was into my thirties. Most people in the west were/are sugarbabies.

        I found my sugar cravings got progressively worse as I headed to the big CHANGE, and the struggle has been truly a person battle. MDA was a huge help, since getting off the junk makes all the difference.

            It doesn't seem to take much for a switch from one kind of abuse to another. Like alcoholics who often will start eating terribly sweet foods when they give up the drink.

                  I benefit from starch while not being addicted to sugar. I have been addicted to other substances, but have never been addicted to the poison that is sugar.

                  Does anyone else here have a rudimentary understanding of what carbohydrates actually are?

                    I'm addicted to food. Really, I'm not sure I could live without it.

                      I consider myself a sugar addict. Though it has been better since doing the Whole 30.

                          The only time I felt as though I was becoming a sugar addict was when I tried elminating it almost completely. Now that I don't, it's just another taste sensation I enjoy like bitterness, sourness, saltiness etc. I'd imagine if I ever tried to restrict salt or fat I'd have the same experience.

                            Yeah oh my god do I love sugar and everything that contains it!! After 3 weeks of eating clean I broke the other night and put a ton of junk away, back to clean eating now, not gonna put myself in temptations way for as long as I can again!

                              I'm a total sugar addict. I've yet to go more than 4 days on a strict no added sugar diet . . . even though I know I should. But that just shows the depth of my addiction. Hoping a Whole 30 will help, but I cheated on my 21 Day Sugar Detox, so who knows. 4 days seems to be about my limit. (Granted I cheated with dark chocolate - so not terrible in the grand scheme of things)
