Sage advice Alcedo. I am not so certain my addiction is to sugar itself but to the taste that a sugary item possesses or that I have become used to over many years. I am older than you so I have had a sweet tooth longer. For instance. I do not enjoy a cup of tea with Stevia as much as I did with the white poison.

If I could find a chocky biscuit without the white poison I would gladly eat it over a Tim Tam or Mint Slice. WE can reduce the white poison if we have the choice but sometimes we are eating it in our every day food. So there is no getting away from it unless we all become vegetarians.

You do not say why you have given away the white poison..weight perhaps. My reason is I was have borderline Diabetes 2. So I had to not only ditch sugar but carbs as well. I have found buying low carb products easier that low sugar ones here in Sydney. I now eat low carb pasta, rice and bread. I also drink low carb beer. I have swapped high carb potato for low carb sweet potato...though not completely. The wife continues to make a stew using white potato.

I would say in a few short months I have reduced my white poison and carb intake by more than half. So I think I can live with that until my next blood sugar test tells me otherwise.  Good luck with your efforts to rid your body of the white poison as well. By for now Kristofer.

For the reasons why I gave up sugar, details of how I did it, the difficulties I encountered, etc please see my somewhat verbose posts in the "My Story" section.

Very best of luck to you!

Replace sweets with fruits if you are so strict. But I don’t see harm in eating a cake in the morning or a few times a week before you train. You will burn it anyway and you will not have to punish yourself for it.

Works fine for some.  

But for others who are fighting a strong addiction to sugar like I was, having even this amount keeps the constant, nagging desire for sugar alive.  I had to give up all sugar completely to be entirely free of this after many attempts where I allowed myself "occasional cheats".
