This week I’ve encountered so many clients dealing with cravings for carbohydrates. I feel for them, because carbohydrate addiction is real! It is also very difficult for many people to understand the intensity and the frustration of trying to counter the overwhelming drive for sweets and breads.

This past Saturday we were fortunate enough to listen to Dr. Robert Cywes (a Bariatric Surgeon from Florida), give a wonderful talk on this topic. Who would have thought that a surgeon could make sense and give tremendous advice on such a difficult-psychological topic?

Rather than attempt to summarize his points, I felt you must listen to at least one of his podcasts; hopefully this will lead you to many more. Understanding carbohydrate addiction and its management, involves all of us.


You can do it. Keep trying, keep learning; never give up. Your health depends on your persistence.
