I’m 30. All my life I’ve eschewed most sweets, candy, ice cream, etc. out of choice. I just didn’t have a huge desire for any of them… give me meat, potatoes, veggies, milk, and/or seltzer water over those any day. It’s done well for me as I’m only 10-20 lbs overweight given the amount I eat. Thirty years of no cavities and only the most negligible dental problems.
This past Christmas, I received an inordinate amount of candy and cookies from co-workers and family, and have been progressively eating my way through all of it. Now I’m starting to feel like I need to top off each meal with a candy bar.
I was always proud of the fact that I never had a sweet tooth, but now I’m developing one. How do I wean myself off and go back to my old tastes?
