I’m addicted to Dr. Pepper. So is my husband. It has sugar in it, so does that count? lol

Are you addicted to plain sugar? Or sugar-y foods?

Like serabell said, are you addicted to sugar-y foods or plain sugar? I’m addicted to  sugar-y foods like cakes, cookies and candy. I’m recently trying to cut back.

Eating sugar begets sugar cravings… in other words the more you eat the more you want.

I never had a big sweet tooth until my current job (I work for a cookie and sweet baked goods company)  Its part of my job to taste cookies, plus they are around ALL day fresh baked. Now when I get home I always want sugar too… I never was like that before.

Really the only way to beat it is to stop eating all sugar for a period of time and then slowly introduce it back in in limited quantities. IE only a bowl of ice cream on the weekend, or one square of dark chocolate after dinner.

Yes I am a sugar addict. I am trying to cut it out of my diet (refined sugar, like in sweets and junk food that is) since it’s inflammatory and I do NOT need anymore of that.

I don’t know any special tricks besides JUST STOP IT! lol Way easier said than done though.

Someone I was talking to mentioned an herbal supplement that you can take or eat that will then make sugar taste bad. I think that is what I gathered. I have done 0 research though, so I don’t know anything of the safety or even what it was.

Some people recommend doing a juice feast/cleanse to reset yourself.

It’s also said that eating sugar encourages and overgrowth of yeast in the body, and what do yeasties want to eat? More sugar! So this also makes it harder.

I do believe that sugar has been shown to be as addictive as crack.

 

(sorry for the randomness of the post, I will now pass out for a nap)

xshellx2003: Hi my name is Michelle and I’m addicted to Mt. Dew.

Group: Hi Michelle.

I try so hard to  stay away from it and when I do get a taste of it, I can drink an entire 2-liter. It’s terrible.

I can’t keep ice-cream in the house. Seriously, it’s kind of sad. 

Oh, and cookies too. 

I had a roommate once who had a bag of Pepperidge Farm Milanos that she had in the pantry for MONTHS. I thought she had magical powers. 

And then she said one day, “Maybe I’ll treat myself to a little dessert,” took out one single milano, and slowly ate it with a cup of tea. Then she said, “Ah. That was good,” took the plate and cup, washed them off, put them in the dish-drainer, sealed up the cookies and put them back into the cupboard. 

I hated her.

@JennyW1: That sounds awful!

My sweet tooth is soooo big! Last fall, I felt like I was eating sugar all time, so I started “being mean” to the sugary foods, especially if my well-meaning co-workers brought them in. I would say to myself, You are so gross! And flounce off haha

Yes, they might have thought I was crazy, but it got me to eat less!
