My 81-year-old dad has tremendous sugar cravings. I've got him on stevia for his coffee, he loves it because it's super sweet. But cookies, candy, etc., he will eat them at any time. The other day I made a big breakfast for him and my mom, and after they both ate their fill, he started eating cookies. I mean *right* after breakfast. I'm not sure if it could be a reaction to medications. He takes 25mg seroquel at night, and is also on aricept, buspar, atenolol, and simvastatin. I first noticed that he was craving too much sugar about 2 years ago; at that time he was on everything but the aricept and seroquel. It gives him pleasure, so I don't try to stop him, but I wonder if there's something else he could eat or drink that would help keep him from craving sugar so much. He's not in the least overweight -- probably more the opposite -- but I understand that excessive carbs don't help the brain. I wonder sometimes if he just does it out of boredom, but the fact that he went for cookies right after eating breakfast made me think twice about that. Any ideas?
