Sugar Addiction Results

Saturday, December 29, 2012

Now here is my real blog entry about Sugar Addiction Results. So I took the quiz on sugar addiction and the result was that I am a situation sugar addict but I don't quite believe that is true. I think it is more serious than that to be completely honest (and this last week has been a week of being brutally honest with myself). I have a problem and I need to work on it.

My reasons to wanting to tame my sweet tooth are probably like most of you out there. I want to be healthy, I don't want to be a slave to sugar, I want more energy, I want to be a good example for my son and future children, and I don't want to end up diabetic. Those are all great reasons right? Well, that's the problem with addiction. It takes over all rational thinking and justifies itself every time. I AM going to beat this. I realized I have a problem and now I am going to over come this. It is a drug addiction just a legal one.

    There are no ifs ands or buts on the subject of food addiction: it is as real as cocaine or alcohol addiction and, in fact, affects exactly the same pleasure/impulse control centers of the brain as recognized drugs. This is especially true of what David Kessler calls hyperpalatable foods -- foods dense in calories from sugar/fat/salt. Oxford University Press has just published the medical textbook on the subject: Food and Addiction: A Comprehensive Handbook, edited by Kelly D. Brownwell & Mark S. Gold. And I've just published the first holistic approach to food addiction, The Hunger Fix, which is based on that cutting edge science.

    I have a CRAZY sugar addiction... like... I have sat down and eaten an entire box of cake mix in one sitting.... just the powder...with a spoon. Or a whole bag of mini Reese's in one sitting. lol. Im not sure there is ANY hope for my addiction!

    I learned it's honestly easier for me to cut it ALL out than to just have one or two candybars a day...because once I get a taste, I want to keep eating it. But, that's just me! Best of luck to you!

    I had a bad sugar addiction. What helped me was Dr. Oz's carb cycling program. It took one week to get myself under control. If you are interested it looking at it, you can google it on his website. Good luck.
