    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.

    Starches and polyunsaturated fats are the issue, not sugar.

    I guess I could be considered some type of sugar addict because although I can and do go months without eating refined sugars, I get terrible urges to binge on the stuff when I do have even a little bit of it. I get this whole "screw it, I just messed up months of healthy eating so I might as well eat all the sweets I want today and start over fresh tomorrow" mindset. Luckily this has only happened to me 2 or 3 times since going primal in mid 2011, but those sugar binges and the resulting aftermath have taught me that it's really not worth the hassle of having "just a taste" of something, because it really pushes me towards that slippery slope.

    I for sure fall into this category . I just can't keep cookies and candies in the house. I never have binged on other starches, only actual sugar, and things that contain it. No problem with fruits either.

    Remember all sugars and all starches are sugars in the blood stream.

    I found that as I got in the "change" years everything escalated, all sugar and starch cravings got worse, ones I never had started, like ice cream. Not everyone faces this, but it is definitely an indicator of growing insulin resistance.

    Charles Duhigg's book on habits says that old habit pathways don't go away, so if you repeat a behavior even after years of not doing it, then your brain quickly reopens the old pathway. Bummer!
