I’m an addict. And I think it’s time to address it.
I am addicted.. to sugar.
I cannot stop eating it. Even though I know it isn’t healthy that doesn’t stop me from eating an entire bag of chocolate chips in a week or a whole pack of Starburst candies in a day (the yellows are favorite.)
I have always loved candy. Some of my favorite memories as a child are riding my bike down to Mireider’s store with a handful of change to buy pieces of Mary Jane chews, packs of Mallo cups and cups of red Slush Puppy drinks. But, I wouldn’t say I was addicted to it back then.
However, as of late, I cannot stop eating it. I crave it. I love it. I look forward to it. I don’t discriminate against candy either, I love it all. Those left over black jelly beans from Easter? Sure! I’ll finish those. Circus peanuts? Why not! Necco wafers? LOVE them.
I now understand why parents try to limit the sugar intake of their children because it is addicting. I have never craved sugar before, but now I can’t walk past a bowl of candy without scooping up a handful. Also, I VERY RARELY drink soda, I mean like 5 times a year, if that, but recently I bought a Diet Coke and since then.. I have been craving that too. WHAT GIVES?!
I have once gotten so desperate for candy that I ended up eating sprinkles I found in the back of a kitchen cabinet.
Just last night I ate a couple life saver lollipops, tootsie roll fruit rolls, sour gummy rings, and a vanilla cream cookie… see?! I told you I had a problem! The next problem is going to be my jeans when they won’t fit over my jiggly ass. I think I’m one Hershey Kiss away from needing an intervention.
I wanted to try the Advocare Herbal cleanse before the Holiday’s to clean out my sugar poisoned body and get a handle back on my diet but I’m skeptical to try a cleanse. Do they really work? Does anyone have experience with Advocare and/or cleanses?
