It is safe to say that I was dependent on sugar. In fact, I'm still – I don't think you ever come across an addiction, you just learn behavior to help you conquer the harmful behaviors it encourages.
Before I started to lose weight and sat down completely in keto, I would find myself bingeing on candy and lots of other sugary sweets – cakes and cakes, cakes, etc. – several times a week, which always made me Worse, put my health in danger longer and packed on the pounds.
Since keto is an extremely low carbohydrate diet, where you should eat no more than 20 grams of net carbohydrates a day, it means that sugar is out of the window.
Initially it cut me very cold turkey, but the longer I went without all the unhealthy junk I ate before, the less I found myself wanting it. I found some great keto-friendly dessert recipes when I felt more in control of my requirements and they more than made up for the lack of real sugar in my diet.
It feels great not to be guided by sugar anymore.
