My carb addiction was so bad I ate pure sugar and starch. Not Doritos but fat-free fruit candy. Not fried chicken but cous-cous with tuna. I ate every few minutes. I ate 3 king-sized bags of candy a day. I liked gummy bears and reeses pieces best. I ate grape nuts with dried fruit and powdered milk, and trail mix bars, the kind that are basically oats glued together with sugar. I fucked myself up so royally that a healthy regular low-fat, low calorie diet with vegetables and stuff like that could not sustain me at all. I'd always find myself with my face in some horribly sweet thing. I had to go low carb high fat to fix me. Now I'm fixed and can eat the carbs (although I don't eat quite so much now) without the horrible feeling I had before and I can go hours and hours without eating now.
