Nearly everyone is addicted to something.
Some people get hooked on drugs, alcohol, nicotine and all sorts of vices.
For me, sugar is my weakness. Everyday, I look for something with sugar in it. I especially like to crush up oreos and mix them into my yogurt. For lunch, I munch on carrots and humus. It’s very healthy, but I often include some dark chocolate on the side. During the day, I appease my hunger with apples, grapes and blueberries. Then I switch to eating sour gummies as a reward. Even if I eat a healthy dinner of salmon and salad, I end the night with a chocolate ice cream bar. I keep myself in peak physical shape. I participate in a group fitness class 4 days per week. For my personal workouts, I combine high intensity cardio with weightlifting. My body is toned, strong and I have impressive flexibility and stamina. My problem is the three extra pounds of belly fat. I can’t get rid of it. I know that those pounds are caused by the sugar I consume. I can’t stop my bad habit. I consulted with a certified fitness expert after my group fitness class and she suggested nutritional counseling. She says they design a meal plan with no room for additions. It would help to keep me on track and lose the extra weight. I only have problems with sugar. The personal trainer said there are snacks that would satisfy my sugar cravings. There are sugar free alternatives. I am not sure those are going to taste the same.
