Sugar Addicts W1B3
Friday, March 09, 2012
So yesterday I had a salad for lunch and later on started craving sugar. I stopped and got some meat and ate it (I didn't bring any to work so didn't have any with the salad) and lo and behold I stopped craving sugar... I'm thinking there is something to this thought!!
I am all set to go "sweetener free" this weekend... we will see how it goes... especially since I think I'm about to get my "tom". :P

Darl, I lost my weight by going low fructose, 19 kilos in 13 months, now I am trying to go low-carb, much harder for me than low fructose...,
My advice, research low fructose, as it's the fructose that keeps you addicted to sugar.
I only have to look at bread to put weight back on, plus I have a love/hate relationship with it, (and potatoes)....
Plus, are you eating good fats? Coconut oil is the best, but there are others, look up Dr Jack Kruse on facebook, or he has a website, try to do his Leptin Reset regime, for 6 - 8 weeks only, it's based on Paleo eating, and you WILL lose weight on it. As well as get healthy....
I can give you heaps more advice here, if you want it, of course..I like to get the word out about fructose, but only if people want to go further will I give more advice, your choice....
Saying you are sick of failing, is a no-no, take that away right now!! Go
to Poetic Blonde's blog & see her affirmations for weight loss, link :-
and, BTW, I still need to lose another 19 kilos!!
I wish you well......

There is very absolutely "something to" your thought! Bacon will provide the same service! My go-to snax are jerky, bacon, and cracklins. Sugars (sometimes even just the taste of sweetness) definitely jack up those cravings.
Good for you in finding an alternative!
