Thanks for the feedback! I'll read up on the 4-week break plan. I suppose the very fact that I think there is no way I can possibly do that proves how much I NEED to do it. argh.

I suggest that you follow this 4-week break the sugar addiction approach.
Then see how often you can introduce a portion of a craved food---and keep the intake in control.

SP has a plan for that!

Beating sugar cravings is a lot about what you eat, and when.

I'm realizing that I really crave sugar. I literally CRAVE chocolate, ice cream, cookies, etc, etc.

I suppose this is normal, but I'm not sure how to combat it. I don't want to cut entire sections of food out of my diet - otherwise I think I will feel really deprived and go into the dieting (always hungry) mentality. Here's the thing...I can make fairly good choices otherwise, but when it comes to sugar. Wow. It's like there is little/no self control there.

Any helpful ideas?
