I honestly think that it is somewhere in between a sweet tooth and an addiction. I would even say I inherited it from my father (King of Chocolate, lol). I think that carbs and sweets, for me, wreaked havoc on my body. My "cravings" for them felt like an addiction - like I literally COULD NOT STOP myself from eating them. I didn't care about steaks, or baked potatoes, or chips or fries, for me it was all about pure sugar. Since I have started Atkins, I have had a couple cheat moments and for the next 24 hours I felt like I NEEDED sugar. After that period, I am fine. No cravings.
I know I kind of babbled that whole paragraph so you'll have to excuse me. I had caffeine this morning and my mind is zooming, lol. But ANYWAY, in conclusion, SUGAR IZ BAD
and this diet has made me realize what an impact it has on my body, my mind and my weightloss.
