EnglishRose pointed out that the children of alcoholics may be genetically inclined to sugar addiction. My mother was an alcoholic for 20 yrs who drank heavily while pregnant. She also had low-blood sugar, low weight, and constant sugar cravings. This may partially explain her alcoholism, as she mostly drank sweet wines.
I've had intense sugar cravings my whole life, even after months of eating low-sugar paleo. I also have a fast metabolism and can eat large amounts of sugar without gaining weight. Blood tests show no signs of diabetes.
Do you think that some people just have a high sugar-burning metabolism?
Could this be a medical condition related to diabetes?
Does anyone else have intense sugar cravings while eating paleo?
