Default Feeling addicted and trapped to sugar

I canít stop eating. All I think about all day is food... literally consumes my thoughts at all times of day. Today I ate a decent breakfast of keto pancakes and sugar free syrup, lunch consisted of turkey, pickles and cream cheese, my snacks consisted of a keto cookie and a slices of carrot cake, dinner was chicken and mushrooms with an Indian sauce and a few veggie tots the kids didnít eat.... then ....then! Knowing full on I had a healthy active day with a healthy amount of calories/ carbs/ protein I proceeded to make a cookies and cream protein shake with a half a cup of peanut butter! And when that didnít satisfy the sweet tooth I ordered a canolie and Nutella cake from Uber eats... and Iím already thinking about breakfast tomorrow even though Iím sitting here feeling full and sick to my stomach.

Iím near my goal weight. Iím so hooked on sugar it sucks. It controls every second of my life. I hate thinking, ďI just ate a full dinner and Iím stuffed and I donít need this ice cream/cookie/brownie but eating it and then some anyways! Iím sick of how it makes my body feel and Iím sick of the instant regret and shame.. sometimes I even hide my dessert snacking from my family. I do not want to eat this way, I donít want to over indulge in sugar and I donít want to diet. I want to eat real whole nutrition packed foods and Be able to say no to the birthday cake!

Hi Kvd92

For those who feel alone, or simply wanting to reach out for a chat without judgement......Psych Central is the place. There are many good listeners here... we're a pretty good bunch.

I have been an active member of this site for 4 years. In that time I have received some really constructive feedback and connected with several others with similar challenges to myself. I have also found hanging out in the Games Forums to be a welcome distraction in times of stress... a great way to clear my head, meet like minded others, and have some well needed fun. New members benefit greatly from perusing the many forums available here...lots to explore.

Also after 5 approved posts members have the option to join the chatrooms..or chat one on one with other members.

Should you have any questions on navigating this site, please don't hesitate to private message me or any of the other Community Liaisons who will be more than happy to help. Just click on the screen name above my avatar.

Please be kind & generous to yourself Kvd92, and welcome to P.C

I am in AA for severe alcoholism. I had to completely abstain to get sober, Even "keto approved carbs" have junk in them that could make a sensitive person have craving. I also had gastric bypass 10 years ago and kept all 127lbs off (with 10 crept back up) and the kind of procedure made it so sugar makes me sick I have to be very careful with it or I will get the shakes, sweat and throw up.
