Quoted from Ribbit

  My weakness was chocolate-covered cherries.  My mom said she knew when I'd had anything sugary at school, especially chocolate, because I'd be an emotional wreck when I got home--crying, super-sensitive....My brothers would get hyper, but I would cry, she said.


We too had limited sugar most of the time as kids and I remember the holidays/birthdays well. I was sick after every one  

Sugar doesn't make me hyper of weepy. It just leaves me queezy and vomiting in the middle of the night   .

I'm fine with other sweets- honey, maple sugar/syrup, agave.

DH on the other hand can (and does) eat 2-3 candy bars in one sitting and feel just fine. He tried to cut back when he failed the candida test, but he is such a sugar junkie it is really hard for him.  

The kids are more like me and tend to feel yucky after a sugar binge. For the most part they limit themselves. Maybe some day they will get tired of the icky feeling and give it up like I did, but it's their choice.

Quoted from Kristin
  As a young adult, her son was able to recognize that the sugar binge time was related (in part) to not being allowed any sugar during his childhood years.


My Hubby Type O SEC, Gatherer, when he was a kid he ate too much sugar and now he is mad for sweets

My son eats honey, agave, and arce.
I belive that sugar can create addiction to kids or adult...

Yes, but for those of us with chronic low blood sugar as kids, the only times we felt "good" (we thought) was when we had some sugar.  It made me alert, energetic...everything I normally wasn't.....I don't remember being like my mother says I was.  I expect by the time I was weepy my blood sugar had crashed so it's no surprise I don't remember it.  We tend to remember things when our cortisol/blood sugar/adrenal levels are high.  There's a great book by a naturally-minded dr about this, but at the moment I can't think of the title or the author.  Maybe when I get my blood sugar up I'll remember.

Funny, my family was anti-sugar, too, but had all white bread & rice as well as too much beef(that I think killed my A mom).
So as an adult, I ate that stuff. Later in my 30s, I figured I had low blood sugar.  It seems that we eat that junk because it is cheap, doesn't spoil, & is easily available.
The good thing about my family is that I prefer 'real food' to sweets. If I were given more sweets, I'm sure I would prefer them.  They are sooo addictive, no matter what the AMA says!!
