I haven't finished the book entirely yet, but am wondering where whole grains fit in?  I know carbs can be just as addicting as sugars, and they are all converted to sugar, but I haven't yet heard anything about them being off limits. Forgive me if this was obviously stated in the book and I just missed it!

Hello,
Welcome to the forum, and hopefully a new sugar/fructose free way of life.
In his first books David was mainly concerned with going fructose free, and pointing out how addictive it is when used in excess.  A few of the members here have progressed to going grain free/low carb.  Make sure you include good fats in your diet, butter, coconut oil, lard, tallow etc.  I have cut out all "vegetable" oils except olive oil and avocado oil which I use in salads. I also use coconut oil for frying and am a big believer in the natural animal fats.  There is a lot of useful information in this website, with tips on where to buy items. It is a bit easier now to get sugar free items, if you look at the organic lines in the supermarkets, you will mostly find it is sugar free and salt free (easy to add the missing salt).  I have just discovered that Woolworths Macro Organic Olives don't have any added sugar, or numbers.

Hi, Aussie Sue...and welcome reneegavin...
Renee, I've been on this way of life since 2010 & an still confused about carbs... Rolling Eyes
We are quite poor & it's so easy & cheap to just grab a sandwich & before I know it, I'm addicted all over again....and it does lead to me falling off the fructose wagon.....sigh....
I am trying to get my guy onto a vegetarian lifestyle, but he is resisting, mainly, I think 'cos he isn't the type of guy who looks for new recipes, & thinks vegetarians are all Upper Class Twits.....sorry, all you vegos out there, not my words. But....there is always hope, we have had a very challenging time over the last few months & our food has been awful, now it's making him feel awful! So, wish me luck in converting him!!  As for carbs, I would dearly Love to know how to keep them under control.
Any tips, people?

Happy New Year to you all, BTW...
Peace and Love

Hi Silver Angel
I couldn't imagine going vegetarian.  I have been going low carb high fat, and it works for me (sinned a bit over christmas though, but did stay off the sugar and fructose). If nothing else, I make sure I keep off the sugar/fructose.

I think the secret is to make sure you get plenty of good fats to satisfy any hunger. Fortunately I love butter, cream, meats and coconut oil.  I do make everything from scratch, and the only processed food I have is cheese (too lazy to make it) and the occasional rice cracker.  I do try for grass fed meat, but it is nearly impossible to do this all the time, and expensive unless you know a farmer that does his own meat.  I am also into bone broth, and find this tastes incrededibly good, chicken or beef bones.

Yeah, Sue, I well know about the cost!..With me, it's a case of not wanting to eat dead animals! Although I do eat chicken & eggs...sigh....Poor chooks...I have read all about bone broth, but it sorta put me off....we do make big one pot meals, which are 85% veg & 15% chicken, though.....I like to use about 9 different veg & I add lentils & barley......yummy....
But our repertoire is small, I've not found too many vegetarian meals I really like, we both don't eat garlic, (Kev is very passionate about it!! )   Rolling Eyes  if he sees it in a recipe, out it goes. He's not too keen on using herbs & spices either despite my urgings, (except curry powder...lol)... I use them a lot......but have been getting him to do most of the cooking, I am older than he, & want him to be independent when/if I go....good job, too, as a few weeks ago, I fell backwards down an escalator at Hurstville!  Busted up my already damaged right shoulder......ouch......still very painful.... Surprised

Well, must go, dinner almost here!
Peace and Love xx

Carbs is potato, pasta, bread, fruits, sweets. So, eat them before midday and you will never gain weight. They are good to burn. Tut never have them before going to bed – that’s poison.
