|Hi another UK newbie here
Bought the Sweet Poison Quit Plan and have read it through. It made so much sense that I decided to start today and stop eating sugar/fructose.
Can I just check, do we aim for maximum 10g fructose/sugar a day?
I'm hoping to lose weight and stop having to take a nap every single day, its beyond annoying and dull.
|Question about judging fructose amount in USA (Attn David!)
|Hey all. I'm about to take the Quit Plan plunge, and I had a question before starting.

I have been reading books about fructose and sugar since seeing that Sugar Film. I have just finished Sweet Poison and I have been sugar free now for about a month. I am amazed how much calmer I feel. This is an unexpected bonus. My head is clearer. I used to "hit the wall" at work at about 1:30 but now I find I am thinking more clearly. All in all, it seems to make sense to me. I feel like it is something I had been looking for. I would like to lose about 6kgs but I am in no big ...

|I'm so happy to have discovered this forum.
I am literally on DAY ONE.
SO HOW DID I GET HERE?
I am a recovered alcoholic. I have been sober for 3 years. Since giving up the turps I have slowly but surely become totally addicted to sugar to the point where I now have HUGE binges in my car and then hide the evidence.
I am also Bipolar which is the main reason I gave up alcohol. I rarely have panic attacks now which is great.
OK. This is really really hard for me. I am hopeless when it comes ...

|Hi all, I'm Jane and I gave up sugar and grains last year
|It is the best thing I could ever have done for my health. I was in menopause and never feeling particularly good. It sounds contrived but I did just wake up one morning and decided to quit both sugar and grains. Of course I had read 'Sweet Poison' and was guided through the first weeks by Sara Wilson. I have lost 10kg down to 53kg now and haven't looked back.
