Eat sugar=being hungry all the time, especially at night=gain weight
Cut out sugar=leptin and ghrelin seem to regulate=lose weight
I. know. this.
However, I can't seem to get rid of the sugar. The sugar is very tied to my current emotional stresses, which include some family issues and things I see on a daily basis where I live and work.
I'm exercising. I'm meditating. I'm keeping a journal. I know healthier stress relief patterns.
I've tried telling myself that I deserve a healthy body.
I've tried telling myself that I feel much better when I get the sugar out. (Very, very true).
I've tried telling myself that my body is going to break down if I keep eating sugar, not losing weight, etc. (Also, probably true - cancer history in my family, the potential for diabetes given my weight, and two immuno issues that are exacerbated by sugar).
I'm intelligent and well-educated. I don't drink soda. I don't have a lot of junk in the house.
