I am addicted to anything carbohydrate such as: ice cream, cakes, chocolate. A life time ago I had self control and could eat just 1 but today 1 results in a huge portion and then nonstop eating until it is completely gone.

sounds like how I used to be toodles, and how I am sometimes even today — Nonstop eating until it's gone. But I have developed ways to short circuit that.

my huge addiction right now is red vines I am addicted. I used to be a heavy soda drinker and that was my addiction I drank it from the time I got up till the time I went to bed but two weeks ago I got up and it just didn't taste good. I do still drink it once in a while ( 2 in the last two weeks) because I needed the sugar in it and chocolate melts in my purse if I don't eat the whole thing when it is 100 degrees outside

Pick one??!! I'm addicted to all food tastes good!! I have to eat everything in moderation but still get grumpy tummy sometimes. Ignore that grumble. That's my colitis kicking in

sweets is my downfall, and some of the sugarfree items are horrible in the stores,, but i did find a company called swiss colony that has the best sugar free everything,, jellybeans, chocolate, cakes,ect. also the pizza"s i buy are organic crust, and i dont feel eeeky afterwards,:)

The last time I ate pizza I felt horrible the next day… like I was going to die… that was not hard to give up. I like ice cream and I try to get No Sugar Added or Sugar Free. I used to love chocolate, but I've not eaten it in so long… I've about got over the desire for it. I love popcorn of any kind but I've had to stick with the low salt, nothing added type of popcorn… tends to make it boring… but I still eat it anyway. I think it is the munch munch munch thiing I crave.

I do love chicken and I admit that I eat it fried sometimes, but try to stick with oils that are low in saturated fats. My friend Robert is an expert season person with herbs and so it makes up for the difference. He should have been a Chef or at least on his down times…

Anyway, I'm proud to say I've learned a lot about foods since I've been a diabetic. Before I ate whatever I wanted whenever I wanted and I was overweight. Feel better today, but I've got about 20lbs more to go.

To be honest, if I knew I could get away with it and it wouldn't affect me medically, it would difinately be cheesecake!

CHOCOLATE!!!!!!!!!!! Fried chicken, and most anything I should not have. But, mostly chocolate.

Yes you are right. That is why I am going to my first visit with an endocrinologist in the morning. I am so tired of being sick and tired, and want to get better so bad.

I hate putting anything in my body that is a medication, but in order to survive, I have to do lots things I do not like sometimes. Big talk from someone who eats wrong a lot and is good at giving advice, but not taking it. I am not happy with meds, not at all. I am going to also change my attitude about a lot of things and stop living to eat and start eating to live and a lot more things I need to do. I WISH i HAD DONE IT SOONER, BUT AT 66 MY LIFE IS NOT OVER YET. SORRY TO BE SO LONG WINDED TODAY

Long winded is fine…sometimes you just need to get it out and move forward…Think of putting meds into your body as giving yourself LIFE…We Need You Hang in there …stillsmiling

I like kettle corn, It does raise my BS a bit but the fiber helps in other ways

cottoncandybaby 2011-08-02 23:13:32 -0500 Report

OMG! Kettle corn is my favorite, too! I try not to have it often, as I know it has sugar and salt in it, but once in a while a bowl of it late at night is the best thing ever! I don't get sick from it at all, but I find I have a hard time with portion control, as I could eat a ton of it, so I just pop a snack bag of it in the microwave, and tell myself that is all I can have…then make myself leave the kitchen and go to bed! :) My fiance' does not like it which makes it worse, since it sits in the box calling my name! LOL!

My food addiction is fried chicken wings. I love them but when I eat to many I get sick to my stomach from the oil.

runthe 2011-08-01 11:19:56 -0500 Report

runthe 2011-08-01 11:25:24 -0500 Report

Yes it does. That is one of the reasons I try not to eat foods that makes my bllod sugar goes up. i am having a harder enough time trying to keep it under control.
