Am I eating too much sugar?

okay i know this is an odd question but in my recovery process i feel like i am eating too much sugar. i have a lot of healthy foods with sugar in them and a lot of fruit, but i also have a piece of angel food cake almost every night. So should i cut back on my sugar intake while recovering from my eating disorder?

My best advice would be don't let sugar be a priority in your eating schedule...Instead of that piece of angel food cake, have some low salt pretzels or a hard boiled egg...I don't know your calorie count or what you are trying to stay with, but I do know that sugar makes you hungry...I know, I love sugar too...Take care...
