sugar addicts

any sugar addicts out there? I'm a sugar fiend and in need of help. I can't put down the donuts and pepsi. They are the worst. I'm not a diabetic yet but if I don't stop I'll be one someday. It's not something I'm looking forward to but I'm seemingly helpless against it. I'm 57 but eat like I'm 18 and feel like I've been rode hard and but away wet. I'm like a junkie but my fix is sugar. I can't stay away from it. Anybody been down this road and come out the other side?

Tough to cut the sweets I know as I am type 2 diabetic. Splenda is your friend for coffee and the like. If you have to have chocolate most of the big groceries have some sugar free stuff. Winco bulk has some good selections. Go easy on it cause it will give you the trots. The sweetening agent is Manitol, a baby laxative.

I can certainly relate to your sweet tooth. Before I changed my ways, to me a Sara Lee cheesecake was a "single serving". And I haven't had a donut in years and I really do miss them. But to keep my cholesterol and, to a lesser degree, my weight in line I gave up desserts. Period. Except for the low fat pumpkin pies my wife makes at Thanksgiving and Christmas, covered with non-dairy fat free (it really isn't bad) whipped cream, I haven't had ANY desserts in almost 2 years.

Now I do eat some sweets, but I stay away from refined white sugar. If I need to sweeten something I use honey or agave. Sweet, yes, but honey & agave both have some nutritional food value and aren't going to do you in like refined sugar. So, my oatmeal gets honey (or agave). And I warm a couple of slices of good bread in the microwave and then drizzle them with honey but NO butter or margarine. My hot cup of tea gets agave. My blender drink with a protein drink and couple of banana's gets some honey. Etc., etc., etc.

Hope this helps you a bit.

Get into 'Sugar Rehab' before it's to late. Before long, you'll have your bike up 4 sale to get that sugar fix.

I'll give up sweets when my body is cold and stiff. ....... if I can't enjoy my food, I might as well starve. I may cut back. ....but not giving them up.

Soda is my "crack". I do eat the sweets but only once or twice a week. Soda i drink a few 20oz bottles a day. I am trying to limit that though. I do know if i can cut soda out completely id loose a bunch of weight. We all know how tough it is to stop something we're addicted to

I've been able to quit the pepsi before. i did loose some weight in the process. But it never last for long. Sooner or later I get back on the juice. I tried diet soda but it's not the same.Exactly like being addicted to other things. some of use just have an addictive personalities and some of use are just addicts.

Can't help also need sweets, cookies, chocolate, ice cream, just to start. Hard to past on the desserts after a meal.
If must quit try sugar free items offer on many restaurants and supermarkets.
Use to drink two or three cases of soda a week changed to diet or zero cut to one case or less. Water was terrible with a meal at first sandwich or hamburgers can't go without soda.
Good luck

sugar is just as addictive, if not more than most methamphetamines. The hardest part if you're going to do a cleanse is the first 2 weeks. after that it's usually pretty easy. I do a sugar cleanse about twice a year, and notice a drastic change in health and energy (for the positive). If you guys are interested, I can post the food style change, and the cleanse portion, it'll also help you lose weight. I run a performance athletics gym (professional athletes training center) so I deal with this stuff on a daily.
