|Hi... 5 days so far :)
|Well, I've just read The Sweet Poison Quit Plan. It makes so much sense and I couldn't wait to get started with it. I am in the UK. Just wanted to say Hi to everyone, looking forward to chatting with other like minded folks and to pick all your brains
I've found it pretty easy so far amazingly. It's kind of liberating actually now that I have classed anything with sugar in it as "poison" in my mind and letting myself eat pretty much anything I want apart f ...
|Eating out - polyunsaturated fat - please help!
So I'm totally confused about how to eat out properly.
I have to eat out a lot due to my work and I just need some advice on the right kinds of foods to be choosing.
David talks about choosing things like pie and chips etc but isn't the pastry in the pie high in Polyunsaturated fats which we are told to avoid?
It's easy finding sugar free options like chicken and chips but how do I have any way of knowing the polyunsaturated fat content of foods?
What's the general rule on this?
|Fructose Malabsorption and Type 2 Diabetes
|This is my first post. I would like to state that I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and I am a Type 2 Diabetic and have Fructose Malabsorption. This is the order to which these illnesses were diagnosed. I have lived my whole life with a windy gut and constantly being bloated and in pain without being able to release the wind or know what causes it and how to control it. Well, I do now, because I know about Fructose and how it has affected me. I know that there are thousands of other people like m ...

|Good mustard brands
I use mustard in cooking quite a bit.
Seeded grain mustard, dijon mustard, hot English mustard.
Maile is my favourite, but at 6% sugars I think it's out.
Are any other brands okay?
|Fructose free for 3 weeks
I'm a new mum in my mid 30s, I've mostly been skinny all my life but after having my daughter 8 months ago found myself with an extra few kgs.
3 weeks ago I read I Quit Sugar and Sweet Poison (and watched Robert Lustig's video "Sugar the bitter truth") and pretty much gave up all fructose there and then! I generally avoided sugar anyway but was drinking fruit juice and smoothies every day and eating a lot of jam and dates.
I had a few days of was very much like caff ...
|feel better off seed oil?
|I got the Big Fat Lies book today, and am curious to know whether any of you who have given up seed oils have felt any noticeable improvement in how you feel.
Anyone with this experience?
|i think I've got it sussed, but....
Just a week into my FF journey. Not feeling any cravings yet. I have some fresh Anzac bikkies to get me through the weekend.
A couple of queries for all you dedicated people:
1. Rice malt syrup and dextrose =FF honey and sugar?
2. I'd peanut oil OK for cooking? I have bought some coconut oil but it's pretty expressive.
3. How do I use the coconut oil?
4. How do I use coconut flour? As a substitute for plain flour?
I've been hunting through Woolies, Coles and health ...
|Daily safe limits
Basic question here.
What are our safe daily limits meant to be?
How much fructose is okay? 10 grams? Less?
For polyunsaturated fats : Real Food p 53
it's likely we require around 1.5 grams of omega-3 and 1.5 grams of omega-6 every day....You won't need to supplement with omega-3 if you Eat Real Food. And as long as you're judicious with your use of nuts and seeds, you won't go too far north of 15 grams of omega-6. Even if you do overshoot, there's no evidence to sug ...
