I suspect that sugar is literally an addictive substance. I have noticed that when I eat even a little sugar, I crave more. As one macrobiotic cookbook writer put it, sugar is like the burglar that comes in your house and steals stuff and then you run after him giving him more stuff -- because sugar takes nutrients from you and for some reason you feel that you always want more when you have just a little. It's probably easier in the long run to eliminate it completely, although it's everywhere and will keep sneaking into your diet when you aren't (or are) looking!

Also I have noticed that when you are really nourished, eating good stuff, including high powered foods like spirulina, wheatgrass, and sea vegetables, you don't want sugar as much. I suspect that people who overeat and are eating junk are actually starving for nutrients and that is why they continue to eat more, only they keep eating the wrong stuff. Try adding some powerful nutrient-rich foods into your diet regularly and see how you feel.

That said, I still am so tempted by sugar, but never feel good after I eat it and feel the very best when I eat really whole nutritious foods and nix the sugar.
