This is me at age 4. I’m pretty sure I vomited shortly after this photo was snapped. I had spent the day alternating between my post on that fence and the nearby snowbank. It was “sugaring” day at our cottage, and I was indulging in the unlimited supply of maple taffy on hand. Our affinity for sugar is definitely innate, but surely there is a “nurture” aspect to it. To this day, I have a weakness for maple syrup. At one point in my life it could have been considered one of my major food groups! The more sugar I eat, the more I want and crave it. Chapter 4 of my book is titled “Say No to Nibbling”. I talk about a few strategies I’ve developed over the years to keep my nutrition goals on track while still finding pleasure and indulging in treats. What’s your weakness?
