Anyone hear of this gymnema herb lozenge that allegedly kills the taste bud's desire for sweets for up to an hour? You're supposed to take them after meals and it makes sugar or high-carb foods taste disgusting. It wears off by your next meal. I'm seeing a few different brands for sale with moderately good reviews, but haven't tried myself. I was wondering if this could help those of us who are sugar addicts, help to build the habit of not "needing" sweets.

Never heard of it, but then I'm in the camp of gradually weaning oneself off sweet tastes (as an alternative to cold turkey). Once that is done, really sweet stuff just doesn't taste all that good. And eating sweet sauces with meat just seems wrong. But the sweetness of natural foods such as quality fresh fruit tastes amazing.

Yeah, I've struggled for years and sweets are still my Achilles heel. I also struggle with that "food taste" in my mouth pushing me to graze as well as boredom. Building habits seem to not stick with me as much as other people here. I figured trying an herb might not hurt.

There are a lot of people whose sweets are still my Achilles heel... Do something different. I believe that you'd be happy to browse http://findwritingservice.com/blog/guide-to-popular-musical-festivals-around-the-world as soon as possible!

If it's not very expensive, it's worth a try. Do you use them before or after brushing your teeth?
