Discovered when I was in college that sugar caused horrendous mood swings & short temper. So when I'd get a craving for sugar, I'd try to eat something else that was sweet but did not have the bad kind of sugar in it. Tupalo honey is the only honey that is ok for diabetics, so I'd buy that and use it in place of sugar in cooking. Xylitol, Agave, and Stevia are also good sugar substitutes. Another thing is to drink a glass of water when craving sweets...it seemed to help sometimes.
Vitamin B complex is supposed to help reduce sugar cravings, as is treating yeast overgrowth.
What seems to stir up my Lyme: Springtime, over-doing activities, stress, steroids, immune suppressants, and probably some of my food intolerances...
