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.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
