I"m in the same boat...no sugar, no flour. How many years of trying to eat those foods in moderation (and failing) did I endure before I realized that I can't do it? Well, I'm almost 44, so many. How many times do I need to get into the boxing ring before I realize that I always end up with a bloody nose? I've been knocked out many times by my addiction. I'm not going to battle these foods anymore because they're just not for me and strangely enough, this has given me a great sense of freedom from my addiction.
