No Added Sugar

“They” tell me that if I do not add any sugar to the foods that I consume, I will lose body weight and not be so hungry all the time.

I am going to try it and will report back to you on the results that I achieve.

I have always thought of white table sugar as an addictive drug of some kind. But then that is my opinion … perhaps mine alone.

  1. I pretty much stopped my after-lunch “dessert” of Chocolate-Covered Macadamia nuts about 2 months ago. A VERY difficult action as I really, really love them! Also gave up my Jelly Bean afternoon snack and replaced them with an apple and raw almonds.

    The rewards are nice — have lost about 5 lbs — but boy-oh-boy do I miss those goodies!

  2. Good luck with that. My husband has a sweet tooth, but gave up sugar in his tea when he became diabetic and now can’t drink it with sugar in. The moral of this story is, your taste buds will change if you stick it out. Even the arch cake-eater now finds some cakes are too sweet for him and he can’t eat the large quantities of goo that he once did.

    1. Thanks, Cathy … I discovered that there are some potentially uncomfortable sugar withdrawal symptoms when a person stops the added sugar habit. But I am also told these will pass as time goes by. I did manage to lose a couple of pounds already with my adventure.

  3. I don’t add sugar to anything, but unfortunately, companies add some to so many foods that I eat, including bread, and beans. I try to buy the ‘no-sugar’ alternatives whenever they are available.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. John I have never had what some call a ‘sweet tooth’ so I cannot speak to the assertion but I do and have maintained a body weight between 190 and 210 for most of my adult life. So maybe there is something to you thought. chuq
