Sugar Addicts of the World Unite!
Sunday, April 29, 2012
Hello, I am Anie and I am addicted to sugar. One of my recent goals is to cut sugar from my diet. I am a sugar fiend. The other day before I decided to come back to Sparkpeople, I caught myself eating a donut and chasing it down with a cookie. Yikes.
I feel like once I start consuming sugary foods, I can't stop. Soda is something that I never really even think about. So many empty calories and drinking them throughout the day. GROSS! I need a change.
I told my room mate of my goals. He was ordering dinner and I asked him to order me a soda. I am so thankful that he talked me out of it, but still my addiction is so strong. When he hung up the phone with take out, I immediately felt sorrow, like my chance to change my mind was gone.
While I normally drink a of water regularly, I really just craved a Coke. Still sad over it, I grabbed a glass and filled it with ice cubes an water.
Guess what? The craving was gone. Ice water for me was a suitable replacement in this situation.
So all of you sugar addicts out there, what has helped you stay away from the nasty drug?
