I have a sugar addiction as well. I too am an emotional eater. We can do it. They say the first step is admitting it. They also say, mind over matter. We just have to make up our minds and be mentally tough!

I have not seen this gum. Sounds yummy. Do you find that chewing gum makes you hungrier?

I chew sugar free gum. They have some that tastes like apple pie and strawberry shortcake.

@Kosherhottie, I feel your pain. It is definitely HARD to kick the sugar habit, but I know that it can be done. @Blackandi, thanks for the suggestion, I will put your suggestions to work to see if it works, however I do realize that I have to work IT.

Buy no sugar cookies, cakes and candy although for weight loss you'll need to give these things up sugar or no sugar if you want to be successful. Rewarding yourself with one portioned snack a week for hard work done throughout the week is my recommendation and you get it only if you deserve/earn it. I find that talking to myself, talking myself out of stuff and talking myself into stuff, verbally, works well when trying to reach a goal.

I am a sugar addict and emotional eater and I am trying to quit my addiction. Other than going cold turkey, does anyone have any suggestions/steps/process for getting rid of excess sugar and refined carbs? Pop and sweet tea is already gone and I don't drink bottled juice unless it's 100% natural with no sugar added. And the only sweetener I use are Stevia, honey or sugar alcohols (they don't bother my stomach). But I love my candy, cakes and cookies dang it!!! emoticon
