"Don't judge a book by its cover" Sarah Black said she should have listened to her self. When Sarah was younger she was very thin, so she ate what ever she wanted. As she got older she began to gain weight from what she ate. Over the years she developed a horrible sugar problem. Sugar is effecting many people.


As the weight started coming she began to worry, she started doing research. The more research she did the more upset she became. During the research process, she learned that you compulsively crave or eat sugar for emotional support, to self sooth, or to manage stress. When she figured this out she thought "I don't have a problem like that." She did more research.


She found a list of things you can do if you crave sugar.

The list says:

-Give in a little

-Combine foods

-Go cold turkey

-Grab some gum

-Reach for fruit

-Get up and go

-Slow down

-Mix it up

She tried all these things, but none of them worked. Research went on.


Over the next few days she found out that sugar is a carbohydrate. The taste of sugar also releases endorphins that calm and relax us. Americans do over consume, an averaging about 22 table spoons of added sugar. She also learned that the taste of sugar is the first thing humans prefer from birth. Sarah thought these were interesting, but they would not help her. Her research went on.


Finally, she found a website that she thought could her. The 'site said that adults with bad sugar and or weight problems develop these problems in their child hood. When she read this she thought about what she ate as a child. Sarah remembered that she had eaten what ever she chose which all most always encoded sugar.


After think about what she had learned, she tried ti get get self to eat healthier, but sadly failed. Now that she knew what was "wrong" she tried the list again. And it worked.


All I am trying to say is that even if you have a problem you can over come it, but only if you don't give up.
