    Some scientists say its as addictive as crack.

    Other scientists say they must be smoking crack to make such a claim.


    All I know is I cannot put the cookie down. I dont want to eat a cookie now my plan is to never eat cookies again . But when I get hungry a whole new personality takes over and I want the cookie. Its not like I can use discipline because when I want the cookie when im hungry I abandon my long term goals of being in shape and I focus on cookies and having a good time with them. You use discipline when you want to achieve something well I dont even want to achieve something when I want cookies that desire gets replaced.

    I therefore am powerless.

    My serious question is if I want to break the addiction do I go T total or do I lower my dose?

    No porn?

    Dude, you keep opening this threads about losing weight. Not sure if serious of trolling, but there isn't a secret fucking recipe. You just do it!
    There are some small tricks, of course, but, in the end, it depends of how much you want it.

    Good luck mate. Honestly taste buds do adjust. Non sugary food may taste dull at first but it will get better if you change your pallete.

    Dont beat yours lf up if ypu day only make it two days try again and learn from it

    Pay attention to you tboughts your mind will try to trick you and convince you to eat junk

    You can crave your sugar craving with sweet fruits such as mangos or guava.

    Sugar is a complete killer. I have been a sugar-holic for a long time.

    The crazy thing is that there is a bacteria in your gut that thrives on sugar and takes over reducing the populations of other bacteria that you need. When you don't eat sugar it sends peptide hormone to your brain (a really small one apparently) that tells you to EAT MORE SUGAR> Fuck me.

    There is only one way to beat this down and that is by drastically reducing sugar for a few weeks. That includes carbs. Give it 5 or 6 weeks (if you can make it) and you'll crave sugar a lot less.

    There are a couple of documentaries that I'd recommend watching that will put you off it. I wasn't massively into sugar but still eating a lot of sweet stuff, deserts etc. after watching those I somehow completely slowed down.

    The first one is called fed up:


    And the other one is That sugar film:

    My advice is to eat more fruits and not have sugar at home. Not even honey for your tea. Or sugar for your coffee. Just don't! The first few days it's difficult but eventually it will go away. Sugar craves don't last forever, don't worry.

    Regardless of whether the OP is trolling or not, I'd like to throw my .02 on this subject.

    Personally, what worked best for me to kick my sugar cravings is by going on the Ketogenic diet. Everyday, I eat only wholesome food such as bacon, eggs, steak, vegetables, cheese, etc.

    Processed food and empty calorie foods are nonexistent in my diet. There are two reasons for this: one, my body and mind function better when I'm feeding myself with such wholesome, nutritious sustenance, and two, the last thing my body craves after a brutal training session is a Twinkie - such crap does nothing to help repair my muscle cells, but instead get converted into unwanted adipose tissue.

    I've been on this diet for 3 months now (STRICT, this time with no carb up/refeed/cheat days), and I've forgotten what a glazed donut tastes like, nor do I care for them.

    I'm very lucky in that I have never had a lot of sugar cravings. I think its due to my thinking when I eat things how much sugar is in it. Not in grams or anything but take a cookie: if you look at it in your head and know half of it is sugar and you imagine how that looks (I at least think), its pretty gross.

    A more practical tip is to eat something that has a little carbs or slow carbs in it when you feel the cravings: stabilizing your blood sugar will reduce your cravings. Personally I usually ate an apple or a carrot, which helped a lot.

    The less you eat fast carbs/sugars the easier it will get too. The cravings come because when you eat fast carbs your blood sugar skyrockets, then crashes shorty after, which makes your body tell you that you NEED to get sugar in you. Try to eat more fatty and protein rich food, it will keep your cravings more stable.

    If something I've written is factually wrong please correct me, its just my understanding of it and of the little I've read but I'm pretty sure I got my facts straight.
