    I am going to try these! Thx.
    Had an epiphany yesterday — I am addicted to starches, especially in the form of great breads (challah, sour dough, rye, etc. etc.). This epiphany came to me yesterday afternoon when I had a craving for bread or mashed potatoes. I did some reading on google and found out that “Sweets and starches are now known to act like hard drugs in the body. The first stop in beating carbohydrate addiction is to understand that sugar and starch are actually at least as addictive as alcohol and drugs” (www.dietcure.com). That most definitely was an eye opener for me!!!!

      Linda, Thanks for sharing. It’s definitely a process. Not all carbohydrates are bad. Carbohydrates can be either simple or complex. Complex carbohydrates, like whole grains and legumes, contain longer chains of sugar molecules; these usually take more time for the body to break down and use. This, in turn, provides you with a more even amount of energy. So it’s important to stay away or eat every so often those simple, addictive carbs. Take it day-by-day and try to make better choices and reach for those complex carbs in place of enriched, sweet, simple carbohydrates.
