As my weakness I would take a bag of chips over a chocolate bar any day but yes, sugar is very addicting.  If for some reason I eat something sweet, I do find myself craving sweets for a few days after.  It's remarkable, actually, how powerful of a drug it is.

?Impact is right though, it's an easy cycle to break.  My husband was such a bad eater when I met him I couldn't even consider him seriously as a partner, but at least he was open to change and I started feeding him right and now he eats pretty healthy.  Well, as far as I know, he probably sneaks some in when he's at work, but at home he eats fruit if he wants something sweet.

A few of his immediate family are overweight and they're dealing with diabetes and other health issues that go along with being overweight and loving sugar.   :(

Going cold turkey is tough but once the insulin levels adjust, it totally wears off.

As for me, my blood pressure is very low so I'm not worried about my love of salt but if it starts getting high, I know I need to cut it out.  I'm dreading that day because although I've cut back a lot, I find food tastes so bland without it.
