Eating disorders and Sugar addiction
Hello, I need help! I'm 19 yrs old and female and i have an eating disorder. I saw a dietician for the first time today and she told me that there is no such thing as sugar addiction. I looked at her blankly and then kind of tunned out in confusion and didn't hear the rest of her explanation. I know that sugar takes a massive hold of me and i have read plently of other personal experiences. When i have not eaten it for a while i do not crave it in the slightest, however if i do accidently on an occation have a bit too much of it, my body goes into a frenzy and i want  or feel as thouigh i 'need' more and more and more. It takes weeks for me to ween myself of it. Is this a chemical depenence or is it all in my head? My weight has gone up and down constantly for around two years now because of gradually working my way back and forth from one extreem to the other - starvation then binging. I think that sugar is my main weakness. thanksyou in advance!
