The great sugar detox: c’mon, you know you need it!

Most of us have a complicated relationship with refined sugar (the “white stuff”).  Today, I’ll be sharing the first steps you need to consider as you explore the role sugar plays in your life.

(Don’t worry, I won’t leave you hanging. I have a free resource available that I’ll share more about later.)

Most of us have made certain conclusions about sugar that prevent us from truly understanding its role in our lives, and knowing exactly how to disentangle our unhealthy relationship to it.

Before we can talk about any level of sugar detox, we must get one fundamental truth straight:

Consuming refined sugar is not the same as our biological need for a sweet taste.

Eating large amounts of refined sugar is most certainly detrimental to your health, but the desire to satisfy your craving for sweet tastes is not only completely normal, you are hardwired for it.

Biologically, we seek out sweet-tasting things.  This begins at infancy, when we know that breast milk is delightfully sweet. This simple truth turns everything on its head. Your desire for sweet tastes is not “bad” or the result of failing will power.

You can stop beating yourself up and start the process of working with your design to release the stronghold refined sugar has on you.

Here are the three main steps to experience a successful, long-term sugar detox.

Step 1:  Honor your need for sweet tastes and feed yourself healthy, nourishing, naturally sweet-tasting foods.

Let me give you a quick example from one of the women I’ve worked with.

A mom came to me because she was experiencing extreme cravings and late night binging episodes, and felt totally out of control.

We were just beginning to work together, and we started by creating a strong foundation of healthy foods that truly nourished and satisfied her.   I made a suggestion for a quick homemade pizza crust that was made with a touch of honey.

When she heard honey, she was very concerned that she would be eating any kind of sugar at all.    I realized this woman believed that all forms of sweet-tasting things was bad, and she had been trying through sheer willpower to stay away from anything that included any sugar at all, natural or refined.

This mom had been trying hard to keep everything sweet out of her diet, but then was completely binging on candy and junk food late at night when her willpower failed and her stress from the day piled up.

Our natural craving for sweet tastes, and our addiction and over-consumption of refined sugar are two totally different issues.

The more you deny yourself any sweetness in your diet, the more you will crave it — because you are designed for it. When you’re aware of this, you can naturally work sweet tastes into your diet and enjoy them completely.

Step 2:  Discover exactly how you use refined sugar in your life.

Determine your personal sugar blueprint. Beyond your natural need for sweet taste, there are other critical reasons you crave sugar and can become caught in a sugar addiction cycle.

Very briefly, I’ll share another example from a mom that was in one of my courses.

At the beginning of the course, this mom would never have said she was addicted to sugar. She was taking the course because she wanted to establish a stronger self-care pattern and routine in her life.

She was a naturally thin woman and never had to worry much about her weight. And I can tell you from my own experience and working with hundreds of other women, most women who aren’t concerned about their weight never imagine that they have an unhealthy relationship with food.

We have been brainwashed by the media and diet industry to focus exclusively on weight as a marker for health.

As she worked through the course, it became clear to her that she had chronically used food as a way to stuff down and numb out deeper emotional needs, in particular the very basic need of just having something of her “own” again in life. She had no outlet for personal growth or creativity — nothing that just made her feel alive.

And that is one of our fundamental needs.

So it was through exploring her patterns with food that she began to listen and observe what was really happening in her life, and it led her to uncover a deeper, starved need.

When she began working on small, simple but significant ways she could come “back to herself” and feel more alive and creative, her addiction to sugary treats all but disappeared.

Step 3:  Restore your body of the depleted nutrients and imbalances from overuse of refined sugar.

Finally, you must bolster your diet with foods that truly satisfy and nourish a healthy life.

There is no doubt that a body chronically fed large amounts of refined sugar is nutrient-depleted and imbalanced. In addition to the inner work of understanding the role of sugar in your life, it is essential to move your diet toward nourishing, healing, and restorative foods — foods that heal your intestinal tract, heal your insulin response, and heal chronic inflammation.

And like I said in the beginning, this post simply scratched the surface of this weighty topic.

If you’d like to go further, I’d love you to have my 19-page workbook, Break the Sugar Habit , which helps you, step-by-step, discover and determine the roles sugar plays in your life. This is one of the free gifts you’ll receive when you sign up to be a part of the WellGrounded email community.

Do you feel like you’re addicted to sugar?

    I’m starting to think I might be…I’m one of those people who hasn’t had to worry much about weight, and I mostly just try to not even have it in the house, or use alternatives but my husband keeps bringing candy home and I eat it and I feel like crap but can’t stop.

  2. dani

    Yes I know I am and I have no strength with food at all. I feel like its tearing up my being.

    • Lisa

      Dani…Please know that you are truly truly not alone…so many women have what feels to them as uncontrollable experiences with food. Of course every person is different, but consider signing up for my workbook to begin to explore how food and sugar may be playing different roles in your life. It could be eye opening.
      Much love,

      • dani

        Thank you Lisa, I think I will do that. It’s something I just realized at 34 years old. Emotional eating is who I’ve been. I no longer want to be that person.


    • Bridget

      I am with you Dani! I have no strength and I do have about 50 pounds to lose. This amount would be easier if I made better food choices and did not eat boxes of candy everyday at work… I crave them and can not seem to break this unbelievable nasty habit. I do not crave chocolate or anything like that but give me Mike and Ike or jelly bellies. I am golden.

      Reading this blogs remind me of all that I need to do and I am hoping to build enough strength from all the posts and knowledge to make a drastic change. BTW.. Health assessment. Numbers are great except one…my weight… so if I lose 50 I would be completely healthy.



  3. Amy

    Yes, I totally am. Help!

  4. Jennie

    So glad this came up. A few years ago, I gave up refined sugar for a while and I kept getting comments like: “Well, how come you’re eating fruit? That has sugar in it.” I tried explaining the difference between refined sugars and healthy sugars and it completely went over their heads. I think the same thing goes towards types of fats; the average American can’t differentiate between the fats in a nice (moderately-sized) well-cooked steak and a triple decker baconator with extra cheese (hold the lettuce and tomato because those look too healthy). I think our collective relationship with food is seriously damaged and needs some relationship therapy.

    • Lisa

      Excellent point- I totally agree about the fat as well…so important to understand ourselves on the inner/biochemical level so we stop all the confusion around nourishing ourselves!

  5. Micha

    Especially my little daughter is crazy for sweets and I have often think about, how to change this. Thank you for this great post.

  6. Archer

    Love this! Thanks for talking about this very important topic, and also releasing people from the guilt of eating anything sweet.

    • Lisa

      You’re welcome 🙂

  7. Barbara

    I definitely am. I read the book “Get the Sugar Out” five years ago and quit refined sugar cold turkey–my body went nuts. After I got over the worst of it within a week, I dropped 10 pounds in five weeks without even trying, and my energy levels were enormous! I felt like I did when I was 13–why walk anywhere when you could run? My mood was way better too. However, since then I have had an awful time of trying to quit sugar again!! You would think I would be able to do it now that I know how awesome it is, but I have had such a hard time. 🙁

    • Rachel Lynn


      A few days ago I bought “Get the Sugar Out” on Amazon…. it’s been awful having to wait for it to arrive! I hope it’s as helpful to me as it was to you. 🙂

  8. Becky

    I am thrilled to read this post. I suffer from PCOS and Syndrome X which causes a severe insulin resistance within me because of refined sugars…which I am addicted to, so I am very anxious to see what you have to say. I have been researching and learning on my own, so this definately spoke truth to me when I read it. 🙂

    • Lisa

      Becky…it is devastating what can happen to us when we chronically abuse refined grateful you now know what is happening and can begin to rebuild and nourish your body with what it truly needs.

    • Kathy in IN

      I am also insulin resistant, not having Syndrome X. I’ve known for almost a year now, am an RN (so I know nutrition!), have been to classes to learn how to eat balanced protein/carb meals and *still* struggle with making correct food choices! I have about 80 pounds to loose and it feels overwhelming to say the least.

      My struggle is not only with sweet things, but with also crackers and chips which turn to sugar in your body. So, those salty things can be every bit as much of a problem too!

      I downloaded your e-book a long time ago and I don’t think I ever read it! I’m going to give it a try again. 🙂

  9. Dominique

    I’m still trying to cut off refined sugars in my diet.. it’s not that easy but I’m sure with added discipline I’ll be able to do so and lose a few more pounds in the process.

  10. This Good Life

    Thank you for a really informative post. (And what a great website! I am a ‘new’ intentional blogger so it’s nice to see how the ‘big fish’ go about it :))

    I’ve always enjoyed cooking from scratch and that allows me to largely control my sugar content. I try to only eat sugar when I am actually meaning to do so: like in my cup of tea or in a Soda or a piece of chocolate. By making stuff myself (including bread and at times, jam) I have more insight into how sugar can creep into my diet.

    My two main vices are tea and Soda. I used to drink embarrassing amounts of sugar in my tea but have managed to scale that back to one teaspoon per cup. Quite an achievement for me 😉 I am not sure if I’ll ever scale it back to no sugar at all (I drink my tea Continental – no milk to soften the bitter taste) but it’s a goal I gently try to work towards. So that leaves me with Soda. I still drink it (it’s my only real food vice, really!) but I try to have awareness about when, how and how much I drink it. If I want a refreshing, fizzy drink, I try to replace Soda with sparkling water as often as I can. It still has the same (if not more!) refreshing taste without the ‘blandness’ of regular water.

    Just my two cents 🙂

    This Good Life


    Love this post! Thank you for releasing people(that include ME ) from the guilt of eating anything sweet. Honestly, I have a sweet tooth and controlling sugar is really hard for me, but I know anything that is too much is bad, so I’m cutting my sugar intake especially refined sugar intake!

  12. Brooke

    Hi Lisa,
    After completing the 10 day version of the Daniel fast, I have found that it is easy to get addicted to sugar as soon as I start allowing it back into my diet. I went to a healthy eating course a few weeks ago and learned that our brain sees sugar the same way it sees drugs. When we get a little bit, we automatically “need” more of it the next time to feel the same way.
    I can’t wait to read more from you and to read “Break the Sugar Habit.”

    • Lisa

      Yes, yes! Absolutely…the pattern of sugar in our body is much MUCH more like a drug than a food– helps explain a lot about how we interact with it, huh?!

  13. Kristen

    I do feel as if I use sugar to make it through the day. Usually late afternoon, or evening. I crave chocolate. I am trying to change my diet to improve my energy levels, but am afraid of giving up sugar – I love it!! It’s so hard to say no to that yummy-looking chocolate cake at a party! (Do you have hints for this too??)

    • Lisa

      Hi Kristen…No fear here 🙂 I don’t believe most of us ever need to shift into complete restriction- which will only bring us into serious OBSESSION about sugar! The key, for me, is to keep focusing on all the good stuff I want to bring in to my diet and allow for my treats to be treats and end at that 🙂

      • Kiasa

        So true! If I’m too strict with my sugar consumption I crave it so much more. I will sometimes think of it constantly.

  14. Sarah

    I’m a total sugar addict. 🙁 I printed and reviewed Breaking the Sugar Habit a few months ago, but now I need to do the work!!!

  15. Katie @ Imperfect People

    We have slowly replaced sugar with sucanat. I know it is still in some of our packaged foods but we are slowly getting rid of those too. Getting back to basics. You sound fascinating! How I would love to pick your brain! Heading over to your site now

  16. Kathy in IN

    I also have been diagnosed with insulin resistance. My weakness is not the sweet sugar foods, but the salty crackers and chips that turn to sugar in our body. I have been to diabetes classes to learn how to eat balanced carb/protein meals, as an RN I know what is happening in my body, yet I still struggle! I have lost 15 pounds in the past year, but have another *80* pounds to go. It feels very overwhelming and impossible.

    I am in a cycle that I can’t seem to get out of by myself. I will download your e-book (again – I never read it the first time!) and give it a try. Any other helpful advice would be welcomed!!

  17. renee @ FIMBY

    How incredibly timely. I just posted this morning on my blog a recipe for naturally sweet (using dates) peanut butter cookies and our overall philosophy of sweets – which is to really limit eating refined sweets of any kine – sugar, honey, etc… And instead fill up our “nutritional well” with whole, healthy and delicious plant foods.

    It’s also so important to help teach our kids good habits and not hardwire them for reaching for food to meet emotional needs. I think many, many people do this in our society. When they’re not happy, are stressed or tired they reach for sugar (and fats) An iced coffee, popsicle, lollypop (depending on your age).

    You’re totally right, our bodies need and want sweets. But natural ones – from real, whole food.

    What a great post Lisa!

  18. Sarah

    Here’s what we’ve used to break the sugar habit. Take some time after you eat anything with sugar to really notice how you feel. How does your tongue feel – do you have that bitter taste lingering in your mouth a few minutes later? How’s your energy?

    By taking time to notice the negative results that you can really feel from eating refined sugar, you build your instinctive response to not crave sugar as much. It’s worked tremendously for my family. My kids used to eat donuts and sweets – now the idea of them makes them feel somewhat sick (really!) They go through pounds of apples and fruits – however – each week. It’s become instinctive, not an act of will.

    • Lisa

      Fantastic advice- Love it!

  19. se7en

    Great read… I know I seriously need to health up!!!

    • Best cosmetic dentist nyc

      This is a large plan and I’m responsibility amazing extremely alike. My krypton is everything I create to blog about. I’m trying to focus on redistribution meals in its place of food and drink so I don’t go wild with it! I do love seasonal things too though, so I can tell to that!

  20. Alaina Frederick

    I have a horrible sweet tooth – meaning if it’s bad for you I love it. Forget dark chocolate I like milk chocolate. Sweet pears – nah, give me a pear crisp with lots of ice cream. If it says Little Debbie I’m in love.

    But that is all a think of the past now that I have to be careful and have only gluten-free foods. So that gets rid of most processed foods. I need to think health – then fun. I really love the image you choose at the end with the berries, bananas, and apples. Not only does it make my mouth water I sometimes forget that some fruits have a high sweet level too them and that can be enough to send that craving packing.

    Love all your posts – truly helpful!

  21. Messy Wife

    I would have thought that I’m addicted to sweet and food high in carbohydrates but never thought that I have a problem with sugar in particular as I often find pastries overly sweetened. But now that I have read your article and some of the comments, perhaps, I am addicted to sugar even though I never want to use lots of it. It is just too difficult to imagine quitting sugar altogether.

  22. Foodie

    Yes,yes, YES!! I’ve been working on detoxing my family from sugar. I can say from personal experience that it’s mostly a matter of habit (same goes for white vs. whole wheat,by the way). Thank you for this post!

  23. Jenna, Adaptu Community Manager

    Sometimes, but only after hanging out with the middle schoolers I volunteer with and coming home from camps, sleep overs and other parties. My body can’t handle the sugar the way my girls can!

  24. Luanne

    This is a really great article. You have done a fabulous job breaking the sugar down into a very easy to understand topic that makes sense!! I loved it!

  25. heather

    Great post Lisa!

    I love point #3. In the early spring I ran an online course, 30 Day Vegan, and women coming into the program definitely had sugar on their minds. They knew they had an addiction, they were unsure of how that would fit into 30 days of clean eating… they were quickly amazed with what happened once they started filling their bodies with whole, nutrient dense plant foods – they were SO much less in *need* of those familiar refined sugar treats. They were shocked by this result of bringing the body back into nutritional balance and the reduced interest in refined sugar.

  26. Sarah @ naturallydomestic

    This is an excellent and reasonable approach. I like it! Sugar is so addicting, but it’s not inherently evil! Thanks. I’m looking forward to reading your ebook.

  27. Kika

    We are a fairly low-sugar household, mostly out of necessity as I have a child who simply can’t handle refined sugar/food. Having said that, I see no problem with having a few dried dates or small square of dark chocolate if I want something sweet. I don’t see it as “bad”. Besides, if we have something like that it tends to be satisfying whereas when eating processed cookies or baking it seems like people overeat b/c there isn’t the same sense of satisfaction.

    Anyways, a comment about weight. Often our society assumes that skinny is best. But the truth is, I’ve never been skinny (well, once when having an eating issue… as in not eating much at all) but naturally tend to stay at the upper range of the healty weight index. And yet, compared to almost eveyone I know, eat a very healthy, ‘clean’ diet and walk regularly. It is not that I particularly like being a size 10 rather than a size X but, on the other hand, we need to realize that a number on a scale isn’t everything. Many skinny people I observe live off of coffee and cigarettes or buy tons of processed foods. LIkewise, I’ve personally know fitness instructors who were candy junkies.

  28. Kim Foster, MD

    Great post! Your approach to sugar is so right. It’s not inherently evil, but you do have to tread with caution. It’s all too easy (and fashionable) to jump on the sugar=evil bandwagon, but it doesn’t make sense. Sweetness has its place in every healthy lifestyle! I like how you emphasized that our bodies are designed to crave the sweet stuff. There’s way too much guilt out there over that, and it’s not healthy. All that repressed guilt, and a hyper-restrictive diet will totally lead to secret binges (like you described) and, essentially, throwing out the baby with the bathwater! There’s a lot of emotional stuff tied up in what we eat/how we eat, and to ignore that aspect and just hope we can muscle through and eliminate whole food groups out of sheer willpower is silly and simplistic.

    Love your approach, looking forward to reading more from you!

    • Lisa

      Totally agree!

  29. Jessicah

    I am definitely addicted to sugar. I find in the summer it’s easier to eat less refined sugar, because I love summer fruits like berries and cantaloupe. But in the winter, all I want to do is bake. And then eat everything I’ve made…

  30. Kelly

    I can say I am not at my ideal weight but have given up the sugar and so far have lost 19 pounds since April – Sugar makes me tired and crabby when I have it – To stay away from sugar and tell myslef, “Kelly sugar is not your friend.” I find it generally takes me about 3 days to break free from it and then my energy is restored. When I considering going back to it I remember how ‘bad’ it made me feel. It gives me a resolve immediately to chant once again, “Kelly, sugar really is not your friend.”

  31. R

    Ok, I signed up for your general mailing list. Will the detox program just automatically eventually show up in my mailbox? Am I just being too impatient? I need it now!! 🙂

  32. langsamleben

    I stopped eating refined sugar for some weeks this spring and when I first started loosening my diet, eating a store bought cookie would make me sweat, the same way very spicy food does. Unfortunately I fell back into my old sugar addiction since then (candy the whole afternoon long). Thanks for this post, I signed up for you mailing list.

  33. Kiasa

    I am very addicted to sugar. I want it so much when I’m stressed and tired (I have 3 little ones, so that is often). I’ll do well breaking the habit for a while (several months sometimes) by using a lot of honey and keeping a large stock of my favorite unsweetened dried fruits (dried mango is my favorite). I’ve noticed that I crave more when I’m thirsty, so I try and stay hydrated. Sometimes I’ll treat myself to lemon or lime sparkling water. I also have a sign up in my kitchen reminding me of the benefits of not consuming sugar. I’m a much nicer, more patient mom/wife when I’m off of sugar.

    This week has not been a good one, so this post is a great reminder to break the habit again. I can relate to the woman who realized she used food as an “ownership” thing. I’m begining to notice that in myself.

  34. Amy M

    I’m already signed up for Well Grounded but have not seen where I can grab the sugar detox download. I know I must be missing something. Can you help me find it. I’ve also signed up to receive notice for your next Cleanse program.
    Thank you for your work.

  35. Lisa

    Hi Amy,

    So glad you are part of my community!

    The email with the link to the Break the Sugar Habit workbook should be sent out within the next 24 hours. Sometimes when a large number of people come onto my list my email provider takes a bit longer to send out the workbook email.

    Thanks for everyone’s patience…I promise, if you are on my list it is on its way to you!


    • Amy M

      Awesome, thank you for the quick reply. Looking forward to receiving it. I was recently sharing with friends your recent video post on essential oils and their use for a calming influence. I have some geranium that I keep in my room but will now keep some at my desk.
      Take care,

  36. Liisa R

    This is very timely! I have cut so much sugar out of my diet since I’ve had fibromyalgia for the last 5 years and my doctor highly recommended avoiding sugar, but I definitely fluctuate and then feel guilty (and achy!).

    Honestly, if I had more tried and true recipes for desserts with less sugar it would be so much easier! My husband has a big sweet tooth, and I have always been one of those people who doesn’t think a meal is complete without dessert. 🙂 Sometimes fruit (esp. in summer) works well, but other times I just want something yummy.

    Making more from scratch is my next big shift, but do you have any good resources for baked goods with healthier sugars?

    Liisa R

  37. Chris

    This is so true! I still bake with white sugar when I bake brownies, cakes, cookies, etc, but the frequency with which we eat these items has significantly decreased now that we eat fruit at about every other meal. And our tendency to go out for (a overprocessed corn syrup laden) dessert after dinner has all but disappeared (and the few occasions we do, we don’t generally finish them in one sitting anymore). Giving your body the sugars it needs keeps you from binging out on the sugars you think you want. Our favorite dessert these days? Homeade fruit cobbler or fruit crisp!

  38. Erin OK @ it's OK

    I definitely have sugar issues. I’ve worked on it in the past, and go through cycles. Sometimes I’m in a good balance, and sometimes I’ll go through phases where I have alot of cravings.

  39. Denise Duffield-Thomas

    Great post. I’m definitely an extreme eater – I can go from a gorgeous green smoothie for breakfast to eating a service station meat pie (gross!). It’s that “can’t have” mentality that sabotages us, when a more moderate diet would be kinder.
    Rushing over to get your free report…!

  40. Trina

    Great post. Though I’ve been eating healthy for 10 years, I do occasionally slip back into unhealthy sweet consumption. I appreciated the reminder.

    The ticket to getting over my cravings (for both sugar and carbs) was having enough of the right kinds of fat in my diet. There was such freedom once I gave my body what it was really craving!

  41. Beth

    Thanks for this post. I feel like every now and then I need to be reminded of these points. I’ve worked through your workbook twice and I’ve learned so much from what I uncovered and have applied it to my life. In January I discovered I was using sugar for comfort, relaxation and as my “break” from my kids. So in addition to adding naturally sweet foods like sweet potatoes and squash I decided to get a babysitter and spend a few hours a week doing the things I like to do. It really worked! Then a few months later I felt the sugar creeping back in so I worked through the workbook again and discovered I was using sugar for energy because I was overscheduling. Then I realized I needed to scale back activities for both myself and the kids. It’s funny how it’s an ongoing discovery. Thanks again for these reminders!

  42. Kimberly

    Thanks for posting this. It can be quite easy to forget how much sugar can really affect us. Also, I like the point you make about eating refined sugar and satisfying a need for something sweet. Fortunately, my sweet need is usually curb with just a bit of dark chocolate (and I usually try for the good kinds without a lot of extra ingredients.) Will definitely check out your newsletter too!


    I honestly admit I have issues on controlling sugar intake! This post is a great reminder to me on how too much sugar intake can harm myself! Also good to know I’m not alone in this issue!

  44. Fawn

    Lisa, I’m addicted to sugar. It’s become extremely apparent since I started the slow carb diet from Tim Ferriss’ 4 Hour Body in January. It’s gone very well, the first time in my life I have been satiated all the time so when I am craving the sugar I can feel now that it’s pure emotion–usually stress or anxiety. Sometimes I win the battle, sometime the $1 bag of peach rings at the supermarket wins.

  45. Iva @ This Side of Perfect

    I rarely crave sweets, if I don’t have any in the house. However, if I have sweets in the house, they “call” my name and I have to eat them. I realize that my kids and husband are the same way; if it is in the house, they want to eat it. I control my sweet cravings by keeping easy-access sweets to a bare minimum.

  46. Rachel Lynn

    I completely agree with your comment, “We have been brainwashed by the media and diet industry to focus exclusively on weight as a marker for health. ”

    I’m 22 years old, and am fairly thin, and whenever I mention eating healthily or working out (something simple like walking, even!), I always get chewed out, whether by my family, coworkers, or strangers. They always talk about how I don’t need to watch my weight, and no matter how hard I try to explain that it’s not about weight, they just refuse to hear it.

    I am crazy addicted to sugar, and my favorite thing in the whole world is Coca Cola. I’m down to 20 oz a day (which is not much for me), and plan on cutting it out completely by August 1st. It is really hard, though.

    And not having support makes it even harder to stick with being healthy… so I’m really glad that I found this blog, and will be heading on over to sign up for your mailing list shortly! 🙂

  47. Michelle

    I have been what I thought to be a “chocoholic” all my life, however when I use will power to try and stay off it all I seem to do is swap it for other sugary treats! I love chocolate, however I also love how my thighs slim down when I do manage to stay off it. I would love to eat more healthily however the pull for the chocolate/sugar is so great…. I hope your book is able to help me with this once and for all, as I am 42 and need to get on with enjoying life, having more energy and making healthy choices!

    • Best cosmetic dentist nyc

      We hardly ever desire desserts basically don’t possess any kind of in the home. Nevertheless, basically possess desserts in the home, these people “call” my personal title as well as I must consume all of them. We understand that my personal children as well as spouse would be the same manner; if it’s in the home, they would like to consume this. We manage my personal fairly sweet urges through maintaining easy-access desserts to some minimum.

  48. sleep apnea dentist nyc

    I’ve got weakness for sweetness, i eat them a lot and if i don’t have any in my bag, i can’t really stop thinking of them :((

  49. Benjina

    Wow! I really like your post! It’s encouraging me since I’m the one who is sugar addicted and I kinda concern about that since I have to lose my weight…Thank you!!!
