Guilt treads heavily…further sparking flames with the daily prompts evocative words ‘ring of fire’.
It’s time to confess.
“I am a sugar addict!” Never, ever thought so! Seriously! I kicked carbs easily, never had any cravings or desires for them even at the start of LCHF (low carb high fat), which was surprising since I LOVE bread, mash and pasta. Instead I developed an innate desire for sugar. And I do not mean chocolate, I’ve had 3*2,5kg Lindt couverture milk, white & dark chocolate sitting in my house for ages….I just couldn’t be bothered with these! Have never ever eaten from them, no desire!
However Easter came along, 3 months into LCHF, and I was surrounded by pillowy, mellowy, mushable, yummi-licious chocolate marshmallow eggs. My ultimate! And I fell.
i bought a box, telling myself, I’d give it to friends & family.
They were devoured in two days by the lonesome me! I couldn’t stop, even though I could rationalize why I should, my brain & body didn’t give a damn.
The fire emerged flaming & burning out of control. I am a sugar addict. It was then, and there I realized I couldn’t ever have it again. I couldn’t control it, but I refuse to let it control me!
So dusted the embers, accepted my fall, and learning how to cope without sugar…….aka I will have my cake, but now it will now be sugar free and carb free!
