First day with no sweets or sweeteners = misery
I knew I had a pretty bad sugar addiction prior to going primal but I had no idea how bad it was until today. I seemed to have traded in my sugar addiction for a stevia addiction. Weather psychological, emotional, mental I don't know but everything had to be sweet. Tea and coffee as well as countless other things I would try to create to add sweetness to my life. This also added so many extra calories to my diet as well as leading to binges. Even fruit had to be sweetened.
So today I decided to go cold turkey off of all sweet tasting things and it has been the hardest transition yet. I just walked into my kitchen and saw a stevia packet sitting there and wanted to eat it straight out of the packet!!
Anyone ever heard of this kind of addiction? Has anyone experienced this before and had breakthrough? I am miserable. My tongue just wants to taste something sweet so bad.
