I have a terrible addiction to sugar. I binge and binge. I don’t know how to get it under control. I’m working with an eating disorder specialist but I have only seen her once and won’t see her until next month after I have surgery.

Anyone else go through this? Going through this?

Cut grains too, any starchy carbs - all cause cravings, up your Protein and fats - avocado will help you feel satisfied. It will take 3-4 days to rid your body of the stores of the carbs. Drink more plain Water. Also some people find artificial sweeteners to cause cravings.

It totally suck% to go through the withdrawal - can you find a hobby to do, or go to the lake and read a book - without taking carb food with you. Go to the library, anywhere to get your mind off of the cravings. Take a beauty bath - get a mani-pedi, stay busy busy. Experiment with makeup to try something new. I find when I am dressed up a little and made up and feel pretty I don't want to ruin that with food. Call a friend and just talk. Then call another friend. LOL

candy is the one thing I haven’t been able to totally give up. I don’t eat a ton but do have a little each day.
I did switch from anything sweet n low to truvia. It’s pretty good. I put it in my coffee, my plain yogurt.

I’m 5 year’s post-op and I’ve been having this issue really bad for about a year. I can’t get my craving for sugar under control. I’m also a former diabetic and scared I’m going to have diabetes again if this keeps up. I have no will power when it comes to the sugar. I so need help to get this under control.

I understand what youre going through. What worked for me was going cold turkey from sweets. I planned it so I had several days off work, so i could go through the irritable headachy part of withdrawal at home. I still have mild cravings for sweets but right now yogurt with granola helps.

Sugar free! That helps. I would eat a piece of sugar free candy. Take away the craving almost instantly.

This is what I may have to do. I got lucky- there was a cancellation at the therapists office, so I got an appointment for tomorrow. Surgery is on Monday. I’m so afraid I’ll just gain it all back because I want cupcakes more than good health.

If I eat sugar, I spend the night in the bathroom.... I guess I'm lucky cause I can't eat alot of sugar products...

My addiction to chocolate and sweets has stalled my weightloss journey. I am trying to figure out what I can do as well. I am really struggling.
