There are some people that just have to give it up, I of course have no way of knowing if you are one of them. I had a problem of binge eating for my entire life. I finally made the decision to quit all added sugar, refined, brown, honey everything that didn't come from a vegetable or fruit. Since then I have not binged, I have lost 82 pounds.
If you come to feel like sugar is a toxic substance to you, you may try abstinence. AFter the first two weeks it was not difficult for me. I don't think everyone has to do this admittedly drastic step, but I do believe that sugar can be addictive just like drugs or alcohol. For those of us afflicted abstinence may be the only remedy.
One of the biggest problems I have is limiting my amount of refined sugar. It seems to be in everything! So I try to find alternative like sugar substitues...splenda, honey, agave nectar...still the craving for sugar is still there and I know it's the main reason I can't seem to get rid of belly fat. Any suggestions how to control the cravings?
