    Are you a sugaraholic?

    Primal Fuel
    I've been off the blog for a while doing my own blog on the specific issues around sugar-starch addiction. If you are interested:

    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.

    I found my sugar cravings got progressively worse as I headed to the big CHANGE, and the struggle has been truly a person battle. MDA was a huge help, since getting off the junk makes all the difference.

    It doesn't seem to take much for a switch from one kind of abuse to another. Like alcoholics who often will start eating terribly sweet foods when they give up the drink.

    I benefit from starch while not being addicted to sugar. I have been addicted to other substances, but have never been addicted to the poison that is sugar.

    Does anyone else here have a rudimentary understanding of what carbohydrates actually are?

    I'm addicted to food. Really, I'm not sure I could live without it.
