When I'm eating them, I seem to be addicted to high-sugar (carbs) junk food...candy, cookies, etc.....and have a heck of a time not obsessing about my next fix. AND, I crave flour products, whether white or whole grain.
When I don't eat sweets and limit complex carb intake to recommended amounts, there is no craving or obsession. Completely eliminating sugar from my diet (which I've done more than once), doesn't work because I feel deprived. Fortunately, I can tolerate some food items with high sugar content, like salad dressing and fruit. Gotta satisfy the sweet tooth!
Every time I've abstained from sweets, the cravings have left and I've been in the "eat to live" club. These observations lead me to believe I'm a carb addict that's triggered by sweets.
