Hello from a UK Newbie
Hi everyone. I'm Sarah, and I've been mostly fructose free since the WHO guidelines for added sugar were revised down to around 6 teaspoons per day for adults around the middle of last year.

My partner and I have been gradually tweaking our diets to remove as much fructose as we can, as well as limiting processed food, seed oils and refined flour. We've never felt better.

I'm currently reading David's first book, and have the Quit Plan next on my "to read" pile.  Smile
I have found that I nearly always at least halve the sugar/dextrose when baking something as it ends up too sweet otherwise (mostly a 1/3 now). I don't usually eat sweets, and usually just cook it for the benefit of others, as if I served up something I considered sweet, they would probably pull faces.  
Not sure about the marshmallows as the dextrose probably forms part of the structure.  It really is a case of try it.  Let us know if you have success with lowering the dext ...
How To Become unaddicted to Sugar
Hi all. Kristofer is the name I am a newbie to the site. Have been a real sweet tooth all my life. Last October I was diagnosed as being a borderline DIABETIC. So I am after all the advice on ridding my diet of harmless sugar. I am already sweetening my tea and coffee with Stevia. That is a start I believe. Any advice will be appreciated.

Is this a good oil?
Excessive hunger?
Hey Hey, I just jumped on the sugar free train. I'm on Day 3 and the headaches are killing me but i'll survive.

My main issue is the amount i'm wanting to eat, god I'm hungry all the time, probably doesn't help that I'm unemployed. Is this normal? Does it go after a while? Should I try and hold back? Any advice, would be great.

Tends to be Ham and Scrambled eggs for breakfast, chicken and veg for lunch and then a meatfree stir fry in the evening. Might snack on some ham or something at som ...

Hi Joy, I see you joined last August, I joined a a few days ago and wonder how you were progressing. I actually stopped having sugar on Wednesday - even threw the last of some grapes out to the birds. They don't seem to approve of the little balls of sugar either.  

I know it will be fluid but I have lost 2lbs since Wednesday. It is at least encouraging because it shows my body is having some sort of chemical reaction and the catalyst must be (the absence of) sugar.

Good luck with you ...
Hello from a four-month quitter
I read your posts & found them interesting and inspiring.
This is my second no sugar day and I ache for something to eat. I think it will have to be buttered toast before I go to bed. I threw out a bunch of grapes yesterday - I hate waste but they were sitting there, little balls of sugar, tempting me. I had bought them on Tuesday morning and bought the book on Tuesday afternoon! I am obese and arthritic and have the usual three sizes of clothes in my wardrobe, two sizes of which I can't w ...
