Obsessing over food vs wanting something sweet

Monday, February 13, 2012

I just lost a blog I spent 30 minutes writing so I'm keeping this short and sweet.
I read another blog today about obsessing over food and realized that over the years of yoyo dieting I discovered a link with the amount of sugar in my body and the obsessive behavior. I'm grateful to now know that as long as I keep sweets to a minimum in my diet I don't have to think of food constantly morning, noon, and night GREAT Blessing! This understanding offers hope again of someday having a healthy and fit body, By being committed to logging my food intake, I gain back a sense of control that was lost and that hopelessness made me hate myself. This is progress and I love progress!

    I totally agree! Just in January I've started a "yeast-free" diet which includes no sugar or white flour. Not to say I've been perfect but I can totally tell that I don't feel like binging until I've had something sweet. It is a nice feeling. I lost 35 pounds by logging my food and excercise before my last pregnancy but just by cutting out those foods (also vinegar, cheese, I'm sure there are a few more things) I have been losing without logging. Nice!

    Good for you for figuring out one of your food triggers. That is a big hurdle sometimes. Mine is chocolate especially late night chocolate. I find if I even eat a little of the stuff I spin out of control. Keep tracking your calories it is a big help.
    Best of luck to you!
