I agree 100% with you @Forged, getting my carbs in early sobriety was a huge help, specifically chocolate and sweets carbs. Your body needs to replace your alcohol carbs for awhile to get sober, at least mine really craved the sugar. After a year and a half it was tired of all that crap and certainly it has felt almost like a relief or epiphany taking sugar out of my diet now that I am at 600 days sober…like a switch flipped or something.
I recommend getting solid in your sobriety before working on changing your way of eating, but that is just my MO. I like building confidence in one area first before tackling another YMMV.
