If it is in the house it calls my name until it is gone. One time I even reasoned that sitting down and eating the whole thing would solve the problem because then it would be gone. NOT!
When I start getting my gut to healing, even a tiny bit of sugar can start a flare-up all over again and it seems to get worse with each one. I am sure that your Crohns is similar if not the same. I am having to learn to think of sugar as an allergen that causes life-threatening reactions. If I eat pineapple my throat starts closing and I can't breathe. I simply do not eat pineapple for any reason what so ever even though I still love it. I am going to have to convince my mind that sugar is the same.
