Sugar Addiction

posted Mar 15, 2016 23:42:16 by AnthonyMason
Do you have a sweet tooth? I have a very bad one. In fact, every time I try to stay away from sweets, I start getting headaches. That's how addicted I am. What about you?

You should check with your doctor if you have not already.
Have you ever been treated for hypoglycemia? (low blood sugar)
Your Doctor might want to do a glucose tolerance test which discloses the rate at which your system currently uses existing blood sugar. Check on google about some of the phrases I have used here.
I remember as a youngster I had those sick headaches as well as a great love for sweets. I am not trying to give medical advice here but rather speak from personal experience. SEE YOUR DOCTOR!

Well I am sorry that sugar has affected you that way but it might be telling you to get it checked out. I have always loved sweets but I find that fruit and other foods are just as sweet without the bad sugar. We can be addicted to anything which can lead to problems so everything in moderation is what I have stood by most of my life.

I agree with Brett that there are good sugars we can eat instead of a lot of different things which might be very tasty. You might read a very informational site at

There are many fruits for example which are extra high in the type of fiber which your body will store and use slowly which might be just the ticket to discourage your "sweet tooth".

I don't enjoy sweets too much apart from a few kinds. As for solutions sugar addiction, I can't think of a better way than replacing the sweets with fruits as mentioned in some of the comments above.

Mine is more habit than addiction I think. I must (or think I must) have something sweet after dinner every night. We always had dessert when I was a kid so I think this is just a carry over. I do hope you get a check up Anthony. Sounds like you may need one. Let us know what happens.

I don't normally eat sweets. Once in a great while, I'll get a craving and I usually give in to it because it doesn't happen often. If you can suffer through the headaches, going two to three months without sugar will eliminate the cravings.

I love sweets! As a matter of fact, I would rather eat sweets than having any other food. This is not very healthy, I know, and I do eat my vegetables and meat and fish, but I must have my dessert. I love candy, ice cream, soda, you name it, I adore it! And, talk about chocolate, it's to die for!

Sugar addiction is real, and probably more difficult to overcome than any other addiction. Trying to get myself off of all sugar and processed carbs has been extremely difficult, but it has definitely made a difference in how I am feeling, and my health.
