Comment on Insulin Spikes, not Calories, Drive Weight Problems by Cynthia http://endsugaraddiction.com/2012/01/fat-is-an-insulin-problem-not-a-calorie-problem/#comment-484 Cynthia Mon, 05 Mar 2012 10:29:20 +0000 http://endsugaraddiction.com/?p=210#comment-484 about EDs being more challenging to treat that other kinds of aciodtdin. You're right that the biggest challenge is that all food is difficult for an ED sufferer, but if there *are* certain trigger foods and you've identified them, I think it's possible to stay away from them and learn to love actual food again that really nourishes your body (so the discipline thing definitely makes sense to me). Starting to cook myself and learning more about what food can actually do to fuel your body and energize you to do all the things that are *really* important to you in life has incredibly helped me to develop a positiv relationship with it again.Oh, and we *have* almond milk, at least in Germany, meanwhile! Nowadays, you can only buy it at an organic supermarket or health store, and it's quite expensive, unfortunately, but you can get it! Usually, though, I make it myself with my blender. about EDs being more challenging to treat that other kinds of aciodtdin.

Comment on Exercise and Carbohydrates: the Road to Nowhere by Diego http://endsugaraddiction.com/2012/02/exercise-and-carbohydrates-the-road-to-nowhere/#comment-478 Diego Mon, 05 Mar 2012 00:11:14 +0000 http://endsugaraddiction.com/?p=278#comment-478 Wow, very very intense post. I had to read it a lucpoe times to digest it all, but hm I have mixed feelings about this.Yes, I avoided carbs. But my eating disorder story is not yet over yet (haha, it was such a long process) and there was actually yet ANOTHER stage when all I ate was carbs I binged on carbs and sugar because I had deprived myself of that for sooo long. And because I was lacking in carbs, I craved sugar and carbs all the time. Even while I was bingeing on low-carb foods like nuts, what I really wanted was a big hunk of white bread. So later on there was a time when I just ate carbs, carbs, carbs. I think my recovery really came from starting to eat balanced foods. That means a good amount of carbs, but also with a side of fat and protein. That kind of balanced diet really helped me diminish weird food cravings. But then, I've never really had any sort of health issues with sugar and blood levels, so I'm willing to see that some people might have different experiences as me. Plus, I did notice that every person's body is different. For me, I thrive on a high-carb diet. It makes me feel much better than a high-fat, high-protein diet. That's the beauty (and the difficulty) of determining what your perfect diet should be like. It's different for everybody. Wow, very very intense post.

Comment on A Native American Speaks Out on Sugar/Food Addiction by Connie Hilbert http://endsugaraddiction.com/2012/01/a-native-american-speaks-out-on-sugarfood-addiction/#comment-92 Connie Hilbert Sat, 21 Jan 2012 03:33:11 +0000 http://endsugaraddiction.com/?p=219#comment-92 I have Cherokee and Choctaw in my ancestry. I have struggled all my life with cravings and sugar addiction. I,too, prefer a paleo-type diet. Native Americans, African-Americans, and Pacific Islanders have not eaten an agrarian-based diet as long as Europeans. We should not try to do it now. Our food pyramid is so skewed and designed to benefit the farming and dairy industries. When I eat lean meats and vegetables, I thrive. When I eat sugar and starches, I suffer from hypertension, high cholesterol, eczema, asthma, hypoglycemia, polycystic ovaries, kidney stones, arthritis, and depression. Sound familiar? Those of us with an ounce of Native American heritage must step up and embrace our genetic make-up if we intend to survive. I have Cherokee and Choctaw in my ancestry.
