Well, turns it it doesn't go so well after that...

    I know, without a doubt, that I can force myself to go without sugar for 7 days or 30 days (and I've done so many times in the past), but go without sugar forever? Not so sure. Not even sure if I actually want that.

    So, the real question I need to find an answer to, is whether it's actually possible for me to have an "every now and then" relationship with sweets or not. I still don't have the answer to that, but I'm starting to think it might not.
    This is how o combat it: I have a massive protein-breakfast, then lunch 6 hours later. If there is an occasion like a birthday on that day, I'm simply too full on fat and protein to be able o crave sweets, let alone eat it. That's what the reset did for me, in short it was the massive breakfast that abled me to quit sugar.

    I agree on wheat being a culprit too. It is a trigger-food or me, because bread alone could send me off binging. I still have sweets, but it's 85% chocolate and it's only 20-30 gr every forth night. I can live with that, and it doesn't give me cravings or headaches.
