This all started with a sugar addiction and a nasty one at that (which I still battle with from time to time – like last night I had 2 cookies from Insomnia Cookies in the East Village – pretty amazing stuff haha). The worst part about the addiction was that I didn’t even know how addicted I was until I came up with the Binary Diet. I knew that I had binge tendencies (unable to eat just one piece) and that I was unable to control my cravings on occasion but I didn’t really think about it too much until I started tracking what I ate. At the time, I was convinced that I only ate sugar on occasion and that it was only a small part of my diet, however, I was mistaken. By implementing the Binary Diet, I quickly realized that I was eating sugar at least every other day. While many will argue that sugar in moderation is ok, sugar in moderation was not a choice for me, as I would always go overboard. By leveraging the Binary Diet, I was able to go 3 months without sugar, dramatically reduce my carb intake, virtually eliminate caffeine from my diet and improve my health in a number of other areas.
