Tammy, the key is to try and replace the high sugar foods with more complex carbohydrates which will release sugar more slowly into the bloodstream and will help you break that vicious cycle. Try switching over to high fiber crackers and cereals (for meals or for snacks)or fresh fruit which provide fiber/bulk and vitamins instead of just sugar. When you eat properly, your body will respond by decreasing the amount of sugar that you crave; you will find that you are not hungry for sugar, at all.

The information in your video is really excellent. I am absolutely caught in that vicious cycle. I eat sugar containing foods all day and all evening. When I don't, I crave them like crazy. I heard from a friend that if I cut out those carbs soon I won't crave them but so far, the few times I tried to do that, I most certainly did crave them. It's really terrible. I guess I have to work harder to break that cycle. Do you agree?
