I have been eating Paleo since about January 2011, generally around 80%, with a few weeks which occured 2-3x this year, where it was more like 30%, with the non-compliance being sugar, dessert related, a bit bingy in some instances. Before going primal, I can't say I recall ever having issues with a sweet tooth, or having a bite of something sweet turn into having 3, 4, 5 sweet things in one seating. We hear all the time that folks who have been on paleo for sometime, eventually reach the point where sweets become disappointing, or something being not as good as they remembered, or just too sweet -- how long does this take!! I'm confused as to why I seem to have the opposite experience of sweets becomeing more palatable after I started eating paleo!
Even though I have found that eating a big protein breakfast has a significant impact on regulting sugar 'cravings' during the day, if I were to consume or taste something sweet, it would still be tasty to me, I am just able to exercise more self-control and not consume the whole thing, or more. When will this go away? How long will it take/what will it take to really be at peace with sugar?
