Sugar Addiction

Who knew it would be so hard to come down from a sugar addiction. Not me, my son. We found out yesterday that his body doesn't tolerate sugar and that he is sensitive to wheat. This is the kid that can sniff out sweet stuff a mile away. We have thought for a long time that he suffers from anxiety, not knowing that the anxiety was being caused by sugar. Anyhow, it's not the most pleasant thing in the world, but hopefully, in the long run, it will help.

Have you tried the book called Little Sugar Addicts by Kathleen DesMaisons? It explains why the kids have a hard time saying no to sugar and what we can do about it. It's already helping me. You can check out her website at if you're interested.

Best of luck.
