With all my health troubles (cancer, fibro, asthma, etc) I know I need to give up sugar. I know from experience that I would do much better without it. However, I am an addict. When I need a fix, it does not matter what form it takes, I MUST have sugar. It may seem funny but I am as addicted to it as some are to heroin or alcohol. I have been reading about how to free oneself from sugar addiction. My sources claim that if one eats healthy foods and steels oneself, the sugar craving will subside "in a few days." I know this is not true in my case. About 15 years ago, due to a chronic yeast infection I was put on a wheat-free, yeast-free, sugar-free diet for 6 months on which I was very strict with myself -- I didn't even have fruit. I took supplements such as chromium that helped to regulate blood sugar. Yet not a day went by, in the entire 6 months, that I didn't crave and dream of eating sugar. The cravings never even really subsided the entire time. As soon as I was allowed off the diet, I went straight for the sugar. So I was wondering if anyone has any insight on how to make it easier to overcome sugar addiction. I really need to get this out of my diet to help get my health back. There is no rehab program for sugar. (I cannot do a yeast detox because I am already putting a strain on my liver with the chemo).
