I was addicted to sugar and food for over 20 years, a friend in Europe showed me how this is all related to emotions and Diet. A Diet to address the emotions and the food worked for me and I have been free!

I just have to say that comparing todays sugar consumption to the 1700 isn't a very good comparison. They didn't have the kind of refined sugars that we have today, so of course they're eating much less of it. It was also super expensive back then which gave fewer people access to it.
I broke my sugar craving/addiction with tincture of Gymnema Sylvestre. IT WORKS!!

"When a craving strikes, try going for a walk or simply drinking a glass of water" --- Seriously? I can't stand it when I look for answers on how to help my sugar addiction and I get advice like THAT. I'm sorry, but when I want chocolate and I want SWEETS, I do NOT want a glass of freaking water or to go for a walk! So annoying.

I am sure sugar is making me loose energy so great advice I will be sticking to reduce sugar intake by being careful of hidden sugars
low carb high fiber whole grains, for people who do NOT have Gluten allergies, in Moderation, is a good thing.
Yes many grains are just as harmful as sugar because the body breaks them down into sugar.. so without fiber to bind and slow that conversion down, or without exercise enough to use it in the rate the body BURNS it off, the carbs from whole grains are converted into FAT cells just like sugar anyway, and we all already read how bad sugar is.
So just because its "whole" grain or "low carb" grain doesn't make it SAFE.
The body doesn't need more than 40g of carbs to function for anything... (which it can get from green vegetables) unless of course one is exercising all the glucose from that out already.

If you don't know that whole grains are just as harmful as regular sugar and that they also elevate blood sugar, then you should't be writing dietary advice. You're harming people.
Avoiding added sugar is great. Avoiding carbs entirely, as some users are suggesting, is not. Your body needs them to function properly, just like it needs fat. Yes, fat. It's not a dirty word, it's a dietary necessity.
Like the article says, moderation is key in all things. Just don't forget to give your body what it needs in your effort to avoid what it doesn't. As someone with insulin resistance, I have to be careful with my carbs, so rather than avoid them like the plague I just spend 'em where they count - whole grains, fresh fruit and vegetables, plenty of fiber, and the occasional indulgence.
I find it is not possible for me to suppress my sugar cravings and have to rely on natural pills by innoveat. They work well.
