Hi. I've been dealing with a worsening binge eating problem. Recently I was able to identify certain triggers, the most significant of which is a high sensitivity to carbohydrates. (I demonstrate addictive behavior patterns to simple sugars. . . my mom has actually said that I act like an alcoholic around candy, but we thought it was a joke at the time. As a side note I found some interesting research articles on the subject. Apparently the sugars can result in an opioid response with improper eating habits.) My doctor recommended (over the phone) that I do a "sugar flush", but I didn't have a chance to ask what that involved. I will be seeing my doctor Monday, and plan to ask for more details then, but can anyone here clue me in a bit?
About how long would it last?
Would I eliminate ALL carbohydrates?
Would I need to eliminate all artificial sweeteners?
Does anyone know a good website describing a program like this?
Thank you ahead of time for your help!
