A HUNGRY GHOST’S SUGAR FIX GESSHIN GREENWOOD on what happens when chocolate, peanut butter, and Buddhism collide. AS A FEMINIST, I’m anti-diet and don’t weigh myself. But as a Buddhist, I’m averse to craving and dependency. As Walt Whitman wrote, “I am large. I contain multitudes.” So when my husband brought up the idea of quit- ting sugar, I jumped at the chance. I was aware of the medical research surrounding the connection between sugar intake, weight gain, heart disease, and diabetes. Eating sugar causes an insulin spike that makes us crave more food. It was probably best for menottoeatalotofit. For the first week we tapered off: eating no des- serts, cutting back on flavored creamer, switching from sweetened to unsweetened peanut butter. Then we completely detoxed: no fruit, no tomato sauce, don’t even think about cake. Our plan was to entirely refrain for six weeks, then gradually reintroduce small amounts of sugar. The World Dharma in Disguise Halloween has nothing to do with Buddhism— or does it? Four writers explore the great matter of life, death, and candy.
