Addicted to sugar? 4 things you need to heal

Print Friendly

If you can’t stop eating sugar or other simple carbs (like potato chips or bread) once you start, or if one bite of sugar makes you crave more, you may be sugar sensitive. According to Kathleen des Maisons, author of Potatoes not Prozac, and one of the leading researchers on sugar sensitivity, when your body is biochemically sensitive to sugar, eating sugar in moderation is next to impossible.

I’m sugar sensitive. I was a life long sugar binger. From childhood on, I ate massive amounts of cookies, candy, sodas, cakes, pizza, bread, crackers, pretzels, potato chips, ice cream, Cheetos, french fries, and tortilla chips. My sugar addiction caused me tremendous pain and suffering – eating disorders, yo yoing weight, shame and self loathing. It worsened over time, becoming out of control in my 20s.

I finally reached a point of surrender in my 30s, when I chose to give up sugar to heal my addiction. Giving up sugar and simple carbs was like turning off the switch in my brain that made me gorge on sugar and other processed foods like potato chips and tortilla chips.

As I found wholeness, I wanted to help others find healing. I wrote my book, Overcome Sugar Addiction, and my workbook, Overcoming Sugar Addiction for Life, to help you get off the sugar roller coaster.

Here’s how they work together. You need four things to heal from sugar addiction:

1. Physical distance from sugar.

The first layer – or step – is to create a base level of physical, brain and body healing from sugar.

If you’re sugar sensitive, and you want to stop bingeing on sugar, you probably need to minimize your sugar intake in order to be free from cravings. This step, combined with eating regular meals of whole, healthy foods (many of us who have sugar cravings also have low or volatile blood sugar), heals your brain chemistry. On a brain level, you’re not wanting the sugar so much.

In Overcoming Sugar Addiction, I explain how I found this level of physical healing. I outline exactly how I did it so you can feel reassured and guided by someone who’s been there. I hope this will help you find your abstinence.

During this “detox” phase, supplements can help – especially in the first week when the sugar cravings are very strong. Dr. Julia Ross offers suggestions on how to use supplements in her books The Mood Cure and The Diet Cure.

2. Emotional distance from sugar.

And yet abstinence isn’t enough to stay off sugar for good. (I learned this lesson the hard way!) In order to heal sugar addiction at the root, we have to heal and soothe the emotional brain. We need to soothe ourselves emotionally without food – any food.

This is important because life is dynamic and unpredictable. Without this level of emotional healing, when life gets stressful, we go back to sugar or turn to another coping mechanism – like overeating non sugar foods – to soothe ourselves.

I created the growing human(kind)ness therapy to soothe the emotional brain and create this deep level of healing. You can learn more about applying this therapy to sugar in the workbook Overcoming Sugar Addiction for Life.

3. Belonging – safety, support and love.

I know that the thought of giving up sugar feels terrifying and impossible – overwhelming, too, as our culture is surrounded by sugar. That’s why you need support. You need the voice of someone who’s been there, as well as the voice of someone who’s traveling the same path, so you can feel reassured when you’re feeling discouraged or afraid.

You also need care, belonging, and deep listening. In my experience, many of us who are struggling with overeating are attached to food. Food represents unconditional love and nourishment – our “mother” – as well as belonging – safety. In order to let go of the food – the sugar – we need to attach to something else. We need to feel belonging, unconditional love, and nourishment with people. First with ourselves, and also with others.

Do you have people in your life who offer belonging? Do you offer yourself belonging – unconditional love and acceptance?

4. Recognizing that this is a process, not an event.

I so wish I could give you a tool that bada bing! would make all your cravings permanently disappear. But I care, and because I care, I need to be honest.

Mindful, conscious eating is a process, a practice. To stay sugar free, we need to be mindful about what we’re eating. This doesn’t mean being obsessive or neurotic about food. It does mean finding awareness and paying attention.

For example, if you find yourself justifying why you can indulge in a sugar treat now and then because you’re “fixed,” stop and question this thinking.

If you find yourself craving sugar, look closely at your diet. Are you sneaking in hidden sugars or simple, processed carbs? Are you skipping meals? Are you experiencing any health problems that can be contributing to your cravings?

One of the biggest roadblocks for me is continual, ongoing acceptance. Healing from sugar means that I have to keep doing the things that keep me sugar free – those things that honor my sugar sensitive brain chemistry and keep it healthy and whole. If I don’t eat regularly, if I start eating lots of processed food, if I skip meals, I’m going to crave sugar – which can lead me right back into it.

I think of healing more akin to putting gas in your car – something you do over and over again – rather than fixing a broken muffler – something you do once and then it’s done. It’s the only way I know how to do this long term.

I don’t always love being sugar free. I accept times when I resist eating this way; I know it’s not personal. We all feel this way!

At the same time, I try to open my heart to even this – a different way of eating than the way many people eat. I try to embrace my sugar abstinence as love in action, as a way to honor and love and care for myself, the tender human being that is me.

So where do you go from here?

Listen to my explanation of how you can retake control beyond the initial detox period, find support along the way, honor your sensitivity to sugar, and make this day the start of a new way of living.

    Wow! I’m really feeling this site! I Came here because I finally realise I have a massive problem! All my diets fail and even if I lose a tiny bit of weight… its with eating a nice choc bar! I have loads of sugar in my tea (4 times a day). I do better for a week but then start again! In fact right now while I’m typing this … I feel like some sherbet sweets but they are at home and I’m at work so I can’t have them! I haven’t watched yr video yet – I will look later!

    I’ve read on the site some folks wanted to get this sugar thing ‘beat’ by a certain age! well I’m 53 and I couldn’t even cure myself for age 45, or 50 and its just going on and on…. My sister got married 4 weeks ago. Some people came up to me to say I need to lose weight and to stop eating chocolate!! I was flabbergasted I mean I don’t even know them much! But deep in my heart I know it’s true! 4 weeks of dieting – and I still haven’t moved that dial! I now am jogging some evenings – still nothing! It has to be the sugar! Short of asking God for a miracle I can’t see me beating this terrible addiction!

    This is interesting. I feel like I struggle a lot with sugar and am sugar sensitive but, have refused full restriction. I have read Intuitive Eating and agree with their points and the way of living. If there is full restriction doesn't it make the human mind want it even more? I am interested in hearing your thoughts on how fully taking away sweets will not make you completely obsessed with them? Have you read Intuitive Eating? Would like to hear the rational of your thoughts in comparison to theirs.

    Originally, I came to this site just to find sugar-free snack ideas. But then I started to read your other articles, and I realized that I am sugar sensitive. I had no idea! I can’t eat just one sugary thing without eating a lot and then way too much. It’s eye-opening, as well as sad, because I love sweets. It’s sounds nearly impossible to give up things like cookies and chocolate. I know that it would be better for me and a way to care for and love myself though (thank you for that). It just sounds impossible. It’s also tough to me to forgive and accept myself for overindulging so often on sweets. I have always blamed myself for not being able to stop and still do. It’s hard for me to accept the idea that it’s not my fault. Thank you for helping me to become better acquainted with myself and giving me the support I need to begin loving myself, for everything I am. This is going to be such a tough journey for me, and I thank you for the support you so readily offer. I also realized that I might be sensitive to wheat, because I crave it once I start eating it. I cannot even imagine giving up wheat. Any advice would be appreciated.

    It's difficult to care for ourselves when we don't have support from others. I know that can be so frustrating, and isolating. I hope this site helps by reassuring you that you're not alone and that sugar addiction isn't all in your head.

    I've had to gently detach from the expectation that others should always understand me. To this day, there are people in my life who don't understand or approve of the fact that I don't eat sugar – and that's okay, because I approve; I understand. As a wise friend told me, "Can my own understanding be enough?" Can it be enough to act on my intuition, my internal guidance?

    That is the task before so many of us.

    I'm cheering you on Jojo!

    In love and care, Karly

    Dear Lori,

    Thank you for reaching out and sharing your story. I am sorry that you have been struggling, and that you haven't had the support you need. I wish I could wrap my arms around you and give you a big, big hug.

    I care about your hurt and hope that you find support here, perhaps by starting with the knowledge that you're not alone.

    I am in total agreement with you. It is not taken seriously enough. It is not clearly understood and people are not sure how to approach or are just old fashioned thinking. This is NOT an exaggeration or our imagination! It is real and only those of us who have experienced it truly understand how serious it is. I have always prided myself for surviving a life bombarded with drug and alcohol and even nicotine addictions all around me. I was able to resist all of these things and never expected FOOD to be just as serious of an addiction! The mental aspect of this is devastating to me and the fact that I know i will be fighting this for the rest of my life just tears me up.

    I wish you all the best of luck in your journey . Support from others who understand is definitely

    a much needed tool to be successful!

    My body has reached a point where it becomes physically obvious to me when I have ingested so much sugar that I make myself sick. I binge on refined carbs and sugar and it is just a vicious cycle. I may slow down or cut back long enough to get a little better but then I am right back at it. I have been struggling with sugar addiction and being taken seriously. Alcoholism runs strong in my family . My stress level is very high, I have learned to cope with binge eating . I have gained so much weight I am now clinically obese. dispite trying to do this on my own with best intentions, I simply need more support. I am ready for this addiction to be taken much more seriously.

    Im very gladdened to have found this site :) Its what I've been looking for – its a gentle reminder to me., I appreciate your kind way out – I've tried the others – the gym, dieting, aerobics which are fine, but the way i implemented them, they were all a form of self punishment – very disciplinarian. About 5 years ago I went through a process of total self acceptance and lost so much weight because I was off sugar; it wasn't about losing weight, it was a byproduct. Then i forgot … and back came the critic. Reading your site has brought me back to this and the realisation. I appreciate that you don't go to war with your heart or bloggers either ;) Looking forward to a new journey that sees listening to myself as honest and to hell with being labelled flaky or fussy – I choose me.

    I’ve been on and off the sugar wagon for about five years. Although I’ve been struggling with sugar and carbs for a while took the start of health issues and unhelpful doctors for me to realize what the problem was. My sugar and carb sensitivity would often result in a kitchen full of homemaker sweets at 12am on a worknight, unnecessary trips to the store to buy a sugar fix, and difficulty focusing from a “fuzzy head”. Of course no one took me seriously when I self analyzed the problem, but after my first attempt to cut the sugars out of my life, I felt so good. I started focusing on healthy foods and eating well. There was a physical and emotional change in me. Unfortunately I’m not sure how I loose control, usually it’s around a birthday, or after I’ve been doing well for a while, I just know that 3 months ago I was sugar free for 6 months and now I’m eating sweets 3-5 times a day. I keep telling myself it’s just a little at a time, but it’s made me very self conscious, so much that I’m often sneaking bits when I know people won’t see me. I wish others would take this more seriously. It is a painful and embarrassing problem.

    Dear Karly

    I found your website only today and I am in a desperate situation… I’ve known for a while I’m addicted to sugar – I’ve been on the Potatoes not Prozac program for about 4 moths – and I’m feeling much better, I almost never have mood swings any more – the only problem is I’m gaining a lot of weight (I admit that I still binge eat sugar about once a week – which is less than before I binged every day).

    I’m wondering if the amounts of protein on the program can be too much? I drink a lot of protein shakes because I struggle to eat as much meat, eggs etc.

    My husband wont support me on the program anymore – because I ve gained about 10kg’s – I also wanted to put our toddler boys on the program – but I need my husbands support for it.

    Do you think I can make the protein less? I’ll browse through your site more.

    Thank you in advance.

    There are tons of articles and resources here as well as a free women's forum. I sincerely hope that they give you the tools, support and encouragement you need to heal, grow and shift out of sugar. Dive in and take what you need, set aside what you don't.

    There have been times in my life where I have been in deep, dark despair, thinking that I will never grow or change. I was so caught in sugar addiction I felt hopeless. And yet my fears were not true.

    Take one baby step at a time….

    Healing takes support. Effort. Patience. Kindness. And it is possible. You can heal, dear one. I believe in you.

    Sugar is tricky, isn't it? I know once I start on the sugar roller coaster (or too many high glycemic carbs) i find it super difficult to stop.

    You may find this post helpful on where to begin –

    You may also find this explanation helpful on end of the day/night eating -

    I often find that a reason why we can "be good" all day long and then "blow it" at dinner/the end of the day is due to overarousal. We are trying so hard not to eat sugar/carbs, and this pressure builds and builds and builds until it explodes, like a tea kettle that boils. We explode – and feel better, because the tension goes down – by eating the very food we were trying *not* to eat.

    I talk more about this here:

    And here:

    I hope these articles give you a place to start. I talk more about tools to soothe overarousal in Becoming Binge Free:

    I just went off o sugar cold turkey after being addicted to itfor 52 years! I got panic attacks, but now they’ve subsided. I’ve been a member of the 12-step groups for 25 years, andhave gone to over 5,000 meetings during that time! The meetings really help! Especially Adult Children Anonymoyus/alcohlics, Al-Anon and Overeaters’ Anonymous. I’m 59 years old and am now of of all addictive substances. I used to bite my fingernails(and toenails when I wasn’t too fat to get my foot in my mouth!), scab-pick, nose-pick, have a ‘need to be right’ and a ‘need to be in control’–ACoA really helped cure me of that! I took some Psych Nursing and had to go to an AA meeting to observe how the 12 steps work: everything I was learning in psych nursing theory was being applied in the 12 steps, so when a counsellor suggested that I attend Al-Anon(I had a father who was an alcoholic and a mother who was mentally ill) I ran to my first Al-Anon meeting and haven’t looked back. I’ve gotten more recovery from the 12 step programs than any psychiatrist has ever helped me. All of the psychiatrists in Winnipeg are too busy being ‘right’ and telling their patients what to do –instead of listening. They’re all unrecovered children of Alcoholics or dysfunctional families and need to get their own heads screwed on properly before telling others what to do! They actually get paid for their babysitting! I can’t believe it!

    In response to "Shaking My Head" I have to say that the OA community is a self-help organization, founded and run by individuals. While I am very new to this site, clearly there has been a lot of research here specifically address the science and mental / emotional underpinnings of sugar addiction. What seems to be offered here is an expertise based on study and research. I would not go to a therapist or physician and expect their services for free. I WOULD, however, expect to attend AA or OA for free. These are two completely different venues for help. The fact that scholarships are offered is a blessing, but as a consumer seeking help, the website seems to offer quite a lot.

    I, for one, am grateful for what is offered here for free, and will choose carefully from what is offered as professional services or literature.

    Thank you.

    Hello sweetheart,

    I can relate 100% to your experience. I also discovered my sugar sensitivity at 23, and spent a decade trying to heal it. What I hear you saying is how frustrated you feel in intellectually knowing that the sugar is bad for you, but feeling unable to behaviorally commit to this over the long term.

    That was my experience, too, and what became the basis of the healing process that I describe here on First Ourselves and in my books and programs, growing human(kind)ness. What I eventually found was that the journey isn’t an intellectual or will led one, but a heart led one. When I foster emotional healing, I lay the foundation for behavioral change – to do the things that I want to do to take care of myself. Like not eating sugar! :)

    I explain more about this process here:

    And teach it in this workbook:

    I know you can do this, dear one. Wishing you much encouragement, Karly

    Hi Chris,

    You sound frustrated – it is *so* frustrating to feel out of control and stuck. I know when I feel frustrated I want to either take it out on me or on others…and I used to take it out on myself by bingeing, which only made me *more* frustrated!

    Getting some of that frustration out – I love to whack a punching bag! – greatly helps, for starters.

    Frustration can also lead to hopelessness and despair – a belief that we can’t change. Countering that belief takes practice and effort. I felt so much better when I learned that hope is a skill that can be learned, not an emotion. I would love to help you feel more hopeful right now.

    What helped me feel powerful and hopeful to kick my sugar habit was gathering information. I remember I cried when I first read Potatoes not Prozac (Kathleen des Maison’s book on sugar addiction) because she helped me realize it’s not my fault that I was out of control with sugar – it’s my biochemistry.

    I’m wondering if that book would be a help to you, too. You can also read my story of how I gave up sugar here:

    There’s also lots of free information on the blog here for you to peruse.

    In en-courage-ment,

    Hi Carly,

    (Wonderful name, by the way!) It can feel difficult to want to eat healthy foods only to be surrounded by sugar! I hear you, dear one.

    Let’s start with the basics. Instead of trying to be completely sugar free, I would gently suggest that you work on stabilizing your blood sugar. When your blood sugar is stable, you won’t feel so tempted by the sugary foods.

    We stabilize our blood sugar by eating breakfast, eating regularly, and eating low glycemic foods. For me, that means eating protein with my meals, eating breakfast within 1 hour of waking, and eating 3 solid meals a day. These 3 simple steps work WONDERS for keeping my moods and blood sugar stable and my cravings at a low roar.

    If getting a healthy lunch at school is a challenge, can you bring your own? That way you know you have healthy foods to eat.

    Best of luck – let us know how it unfolds for you.

    In support, Karly
