“Can I order two desserts instead of dinner?” I often pleaded as a child.
My indulgent request was never granted, but the temptation has persisted my entire life. Even as an adult, no meal felt complete until consuming at least one morsel of something resembling dessert.
I dramatically reduced sugar intake last year, but still always craved “a little something” sweet after every meal. Carbs were also the focus of most of my snacking throughout each day.
Carb-aholic? Admittedly yes. But I never knew there was another way. I’d heard of people who claimed to not crave sweets, but I never believed it possible. Unicorns, I told myself.
Until three weeks ago…
