The question

Friday, February 27, 2015

Hello everyone, my name is Jeannie, and I am a sugar addict! emoticon
I was listening to a podcast from Chef Aj & Wendy from Healthy Girl's Kitchen (both are huge fans of Dr. McDougall) about sugar addiction when it hit me, I too am a sugar addict!!
One taste & I am off the rails for at least 3 days, never less!! emoticon Oh boy!!!
I have been vegetarian for 8 years, (junk food) vegan for one & have been struggling this year to be 100% whole foods, no processed vegan cheese or veggie burgers. emoticon I have the knowledge & the know how to make this work however, In my life of on again, off again motivation & diets, my desire to lose weight & remain healthy has always been there.
My diet is very impressive to people who know me but, they say I must be sneaking out getting burgers & fries because I still need to lose about 40 pounds. emoticon Once again I have started anew today & am resolved to stick to what all of my beloved Dr's, McDougall, Esselstyn, Barnard, Campbell, Ornish, Popper & Furman have told me is the answer.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
I too want to not be tempted by sweets & junk foods! emoticon
Maybe all of the other obese people out there suffer the same things I suffer with, addiction to sweets & emotional/stress eating. Send us all positive vibes so we can overcome them

    Wow! I know of what you speak. My diet is very healthy and I have tons of knowledge. But if I eat a trigger food I fall completely off track. Turning knowledge into reality is very hard. My goal now is 80% good choices.
