Good for you on taking the first step. Just deciding to implement change is progress. Start small, then make gradual changes.

agreed. If you can get past that first week to 10 days the cravings will subside. Did for me anyway. But I am going super low carb and it takes a transition.

I eat clean 90% of the time and I am still addicted to sugar. For me, I have to fight the cravings with my mind. I have to throw in some serious pep talking and mind power when it comes to sugar or I'll sabbotage myself. I was reading this weekend in Muscle and Fitness hers magazine March/April about some natural supplements that help curb hunger and carb cravings. I think I'm going to give some of those a try.

I am here to tell you, you can overcome the sugar monster! I love my sweets. And, chocolate was my downfall!
I finally rememberd years ago I HAD to remove it from my diet because of medical issues. If I could do it once, I could do it again!
After the first week or so, it became 'doable'.
I have been sugar-free since 11/03/11.

Have a safe and terrific day!

If it's too overwhelming, maybe try "cleaner" first.
Swap something obviously "bad" for something better. Small steps will keep moving you forward in the right direction.

As far as sugar cravings are concerned (and boy, have I been there...), increasing protein helps me tremendously.

I came here 5 years ago tomorrow. SparkPeople are helpful, and always ready to lend an ear, and give advise and encouragement. Over the course of my journey I have discovered that it's really not all about food alone. For me it's about finding balance. It's about getting my mind, body, and soul in sync. It's about eating right, exercising and finding peace in a world that has gone crazy.

Don't give up! Keep coming here. You can do this!

I've been reading about eating clean for a long time. It's not a new concept to me, but I have had a hard time making a commitment.

I am addicted to sugar. I used to say that with a smile, but not any more. It's a real compulsion that I can't seem to shake alone. I've finally realized that I need help with this...maybe through Overeaters Anonymous, but hopefully I can get it here.
