Hi I am new and I am obviously a sugar addict
Hi everyone
Im a newbie
hope I can find my way around this  forum threads ok

Hello, from a student Dietitian
hi, I am a health visitor from the UK on day one of giving up sugar. Having read Davids book I am so convinced that I feel that we need to explain to all new parents about the dangers of sugar.
Newborns are primed to only feed enough for their nutritional needs and if parents allow themselves to be guided by their baby there are not usually any problems.
The trouble starts with weaning when even well meaning parents go overboard on fruit juice and shop bought jars of pureed fruit which probab ...
i have read the book and really, really want to do it. I just have trouble imagining a life without chocolate.
I am 56 years old and my addiction has increased greatly since the menopause.
I am scared of withdrawal and still being able to work.
Should I try to time giving up so the worst of it falls over a weekend? Is that possible.

Any help and encouragement much appreciated.

Stevia Warning
I use stevia in homemade chcolate its great, however I wouldnt touch the supermarket processed white stuff, yuk, you need the green powder in its natural form or make yourself from the plant Smile

I have purchased the unsweetened chocolate bits from this website, and they are great.

Carob Kitchen - is this ok?

Withdrawal symptoms worse in Week 2?
I have been fructose free for 5 days now and am feeling surprisingly normal! Have had a headache or two but that could be unrelated. Had a sugar craving whilst shopping the other day but it soon passed. I work with kids and am always feeding them but haven't wanted to eat their stuff. I've read that some people felt horrible on day 10 so was just wondering if the withdrawl symptoms tend to take a week or so to present themselves? I am having less than 10g fructose daily, no dextrose, malt s ...
Sugar junkie but no weight issues & a runner
Must be others like me who've always been able to eat what they want & never put on weight (sorry to those reading this in the opposite camp!).  I nearly put "Sweet Poison" down again when I read that you'd need to run 4.5 miles a day to burn off the amount of sugar the average westerner eats as I run more than that.

But I'm glad I didn't - I'm an addict.  When I previously tried to give up sugar, I mistakenly thought it was refined sugar that was the evil, so replaced ...
Sticking with it for six weeks and no weight loss
I know this is an old post but I was so happy to read it! I thought I was the only one not losing weight! Ive been sugar free for about 4 months since I read Sweet Poison and IQS. Initially I put on weight (I was eating 4 pieces of fruit a day so I replaced them with nuts and cheese and yoghurt and I put on 2kgs!) So I started calorie counting with MyFitnessPal (1200 per day) and reintroduced 1-2 pieces of fruit a day. I lost those 2kgs but nothing else and my clothes fit the same. I have 5-7kgs ...
