YES. You need the reset. I have been battling this for a decade, the last two years of which are chronicled in my journal (link is in my signature). I have tried many things that have helped, but the leptin reset has finally put the nail in the coffin. And as I look back, all the things I tried are actually things recommended by the LR - if only I had found it years ago!
really struggling with sugar addiction
The odd feeling sounds similar to something I experienced last week when I had a meal with a muchc higher percent protein than I'm used to (and I'm used to the BAB, so that's saying something). My meal was all meat, but it was less fatty meat than usual, and I didn't add any fat. I'm wondering if the high amount of protein without balancing carbs & fat may have meant that excess gluconeogenesis was turning protein into glucose at a higher than normal rate for me? Normally I only feel that way after having excessive, or any amount of concentrated, fruit or other sweetener. My blood sugar reading was 88, though, half an hour later, so I dunno.
If you feel you should give primal a few more weeks to get solid, go for it! And we'll be welcoming you on the LR threads when you're ready. In the meantime, feel free to lurk on any of them and search Dr. Kruse's site for anything relevant to your circumstances. If you fall off the wagon (ask me how many times I did!!!), and feel you haven't been "actually" primal long enough and want to keep trying to get 3 or 4 weeks or whatever in solid before trying LR, but you keep falling off and falling off, ... well, then, just come on over and dive in with the BAB. You'll find it life-changing.
There are other sugar addiction threads here, too, where people have had success with 5-HTP, chromium picolinate, and other supplements. Supp's have never really done anything for me, whereas this has, so I'm dancing with the one that brung me.
