[QUOTE=magicmerl;1149386]If you want a bottom line, I would stick with cutting out wheat.
After a while your desire for excessive sugar will decline.
True story: I made a 'hot chocolate' with milk, cream, cocoa and about 1/2 an easter egg for my kids and all three of them thought it was too sweet.[/QUOTE]
Thanks. Haha. I've gone off sugar in the past but never grains, I know how much sweeter things can taste when you don't have it usually. It's the grains I think is my stronger enemy. Was always a grains person more than a sugar/sweets person.
Cheat with sugar -- not wheat or similar grains.
I think it depends on what your triggers are. For me it's sugar. Give me a sandwich (grains) and I'll say "*contented sigh* that was pretty good". Give me something sweet, however, and I'm suddenly spiraling into a binge looking for more. More. MORE!!!!
Considering grains turn into sugar in the body... This question doesn't make much sense.
Grains are worse. Sugar is just a carb... when I put sugar in something I note it in my calorie tracker, and keep track of my carbs so I know exactly how much I'm getting. But wheat has all those great inflammatory properties that you don't want.
