The Small Change That Tamed My Life-Long Sweet Tooth

Looks like someone has a sweet tooth.

Even my 8-year-old brain could detect the subtlety in my aunt’s voice as she watched me stuff another chocolate chip cookie into my mouth. 

Well, I can honestly say that not much has changed over the next 40 years. My aunt kept her razor-sharp wit, and my sweet tooth remained a loyal companion throughout my teens, twenties, and beyond. 

I never saw my cravings as a problem. The only problem I had was when I’d run out of chocolate!

Oh, chocolate. I ADORE chocolate. I’d happily spend an afternoon eating my body weight in Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and washing them down with Diet Mountain Dew. 

And I did this for years.

I was convinced that I was one of the lucky ones. The type of girl who could eat what she wanted and never gain a pound. 

(Yes, I was pretty much hated by my glum, salad-eating girlfriends!)

Even when I thought I could lose a few pounds, I just hopped on Weight Watchers, and the weight dropped off me in a few weeks. 

But alas, everything changed when I hit my mid-forties.

Menopause Has Entered the Chat

I had my first hot flash at 46.

It was the middle of winter, and I was boiling up. I’d wake up in the middle of the night sweating like a turkey at Thanksgiving. 

As frustrating as these symptoms were, I was kinda expecting them. I’d been hearing my friends and co-workers complain about these things for years. 

The weight gain, on the other hand, came completely out of left field. 

My doctor assured me that weight gain is very common during menopause, and it might be harder to lose weight than before.

Gee, thanks, Doc!

He was right. The weight I could so easily shed a few years ago now hung around like an unwanted party guest. 

Even my go-to Weight Watchers stopped working. I’d lose maybe 3lbs, and then it would just stop. 

I felt like I tried every fad diet going and still couldn’t shift that stubborn fat around my belly, hips, and thighs. 

But deep down, I knew I couldn’t put ALL the blame on my changing hormones. It was time to confront my sweet addiction.

A Wake-Up Call

After doing some reading, I found out that my innocent-sounding “sweet tooth” can have a not-so-innocent impact on my health. 

I knew that consuming sugary foods and drinks can lead to weight gain, tooth decay, and diabetes, but it’s their effect on cardiovascular health that I found to be the most alarming.

A 2014 study¹ published by the American Medical Association found that most US adults (71.4%) consumed more than the recommended daily amount of added sugar, and the researchers “observed a significant relationship between added sugar consumption and increased risk for cardiovascular mortality.”

Yikes… and here I was, worrying about fitting into my jeans! 

It’s one thing to struggle with my weight, but if I keep going with my sugar habit, I could have some SERIOUS worries in a few years.

There’s no going back now. It’s time to yank out my sweet tooth for good.

I Was Willing to Try Anything… and I Mean Anything 

I tried going cold-turkey, drinking gallons of water, chewing gum… all to no avail. 

And after a particularly bad Hershey’s binge, I was willing to try anything to get my sweet tooth under control. This led to an evening spent down a YouTube rabbit hole of self-hypnosis videos which, although extremely relaxing, did nothing for my wild sugar cravings.

There’s research² to suggest that sugar addiction is very real and can be an extremely difficult habit to kick! I needed a new tactic.

I’d Never Have Guessed It Would Be This Simple 

I was about to give up until I came across a story online about a woman who sounded just like me. 

She also had uncontrollable food cravings (although her weapon of choice was ice cream), had difficulty losing weight, and had tried all sorts of weird and wonderful ways to subdue her snacking urges. 

This was until she discovered something called DoFasting – a sugar-free powdered appetite suppressant that you mix in water. 

She said that whenever she felt a craving for ice cream, she simply mixed a sachet with water, drank it, and went about her day ice-cream-free.

“Yea, sure,” I thought. There’s no way that just drinking some weird drink was going to subdue my raging sugar lust.

But, I decided to read more about DoFasting appetite suppressant and it started to make more and more sense to me. I found out that the supplement was made from 100% natural dietary fiber that takes up space in the stomach to make you feel full without any added calories… or sugar!

The reviews were full of people saying that this little strawberry-lemonade-flavored drink quashed their sweet cravings as well as helped shed stubborn weight that other diets couldn’t touch.

I was still a bit hesitant. I mean, how can it be this simple?

So Long Sweet Tooth

I caved and bought my first box of DoFasting Supplements.

“So far, so good,” I thought when they arrived super-quickly with reassuring things like “Organic”, “Gluten-Free”, and “Made in the USA” emblazoned on a pretty box. 

I tried my first packet mid-afternoon (the time when I’d usually open my first peanut butter cup) and was surprized  by how delicious it was.

How is this sugar-free?” I asked myself as I savored the last drop.

I thought nothing more about it until dinner time when I realized that I hadn’t had ANY sweet treats that day. Not one cookie, peanut butter cup, or Hershey’s Kiss… all day!

Blue eyed woman

A few weeks down the line, I was delighted to learn that it wasn’t a fluke. 

I take the sachets whenever I feel a craving for something sweet and they satisfy my urges better than I ever thought possible. Sure, I treat myself to my favorite chocolate now and again, but this time it’s just that – a treat.

I no longer feel like I NEED that hit of sugar. 

And what’s more, eating (much!) fewer sweet treats meant I could shed those stubborn few pounds that plagued me since I started menopause. 

All in all, I’m just over the moon that I now feel in control over what I eat and am on the path to a healthier, happier life.

I don’t think it’s for everyone, but if you also struggle with cravings and have trouble shifting stubborn weight, I recommend at least checking the DoFasting appetite suppressant out.

  1. Needed this today! Well done Dana! I’ve been eating waaaay too many sweets lately 😳

  2. I laughed so much reading that… the same happened to ME!!

    Having a ‘sweet tooth’ sounds like a positive thing but it is like a real addiction. Happy that Dana learned to control hers.

  3. Amazing! ❤️
