    It is impossible to cut out sugar entirely as it is in everything we all eat Even soups have sugar in them as do cereals bread beans etc The food manufacturers are gulity of this as and are ignoring the problems sugar is causing such as type 2 diabetes and obesity

    If you don't eat processed foods then you can cut out processed sugars.

    You can make your own food. You don't have to buy stuff with sugar in it. Here in Brazil everything has sugar in it to varying degrees as Brazil exports sugar and it's subsidized by the Government.
    It's very simple to make your own soups etc. Just make a large batch and freeze it.

    I wish the videos were numbered. I can't find the order in which to watch them. Keep going to the same video. Or does she start all the videos with the same introduction. Repeat, wish they were numbered!

    Well technically you only need to sign up – the first month is a free trial.

    hopefully - like the food industry this lovely site does not go down the road of hooking you in with tasty and addictive information and then want loads of payments. We have noticed this model with other industries!

    but so far, its the best site online - anywhere in the world. I mean anywhere.

    I dunno if the Swedish accents add some gravitas, but maybe!

    I'm grateful for what I can read for free, as I am a pensioner and therefore can't get a credit card♡

    We don't recommend the use of sweeteners, at least not on daily basis.

    Kaye,

    Unfortunately, there are no membership subscriptions matching your name or email address. Did you perhaps use a different email address?

    Or was it the free newsletter you signed up for? The membership is separate from the free newsletters and the 2-week-challenge emails.

    Here’s how to sign up to become a member with a free 30-day trial:

    Hello,

    So I'm fully on board with the low carb lifestyle, it completely makes sense in my eyes. I'm just so confused as to how so many people can eat sugar/junk/carbs/not think twice about food and maintain healthy weights?

  23. Emily
    My problem is not just with sugar, I overeat on bread (wholegrain) and even porridge oats. In fact oat cakes can be hell, they are a so called healthy food in the carb world and I open one pack and find I just want the lot. When I have binges it's any kind of carbs, it doesn't matter if they are deemed "healthy". I have always of this is some type of addiction as it's weird that I can't seem to moderate my intake of these foods - yet others can. People are happy to keep biscuits and sweets out of the house but they continue to buy bread - how can I explain that once I start eating carbs I find it hard to stop?!
  24. Judi Baskett
    It's NOT impossible. Stop eating the foods that have sugar in them. I'm on the Wheat Belly diet and eat no sugar or grains at all. I lost 8# in the first 8 days and my desire for sweets has all but diminished. There are recipes out there all over the internet for sugar-free desserts if you need them, and you honestly can't tell the difference. Read the book "Undoctored" by William Davis, MD or "Wheat Belly Total Health" by the same author and your eyes will be opened.
  25. Joanna Ibarra
    On the contrary! Food manufacturers know EXACTLY what they are doing by adding sugar to their products! Sugar is more addictive than heroin I'm told, so by adding the stuff, they keep a steady supply of "addicts" and sales go up! Sugar is NOT harmless! And the food manufacturers don't care about Type II diabetes or obesity, only their bottom line.
  26. candace
    The overabundance of added sugar can easily be avoided by reading ingredients. It is very possible, it just takes some effort.
  27. Jeff Zimmer
    I've had a sugar addiction ever since quitting drinking alcohol. Alcoholism and sugar go hand in hand. Problem is whenever I eat carbs I crave sweets like crazy!! Any advice?
  28. Pia
    I love pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Can't stop eating them! Do they have a lot of carbs ?

    Is anyone else familiar with the work of Kathleen DesMaisons? She wrote Potatoes Not Prozac and I have been following her program for fifteen years. The key is to eat a potato with the skin and a little fat three hours after you eat dinner with protein. This causes a rise in insulin so that the amino acid tryptophan can cross the blood brain barrier to make serotonin, the neurotransmitter that sugar sensitive people are low in. Jeff, I think you would find a huge benefit in reading her books. I find it difficult to reconcile her advice to eat "complex carbs" on a regular basis, however. This is from the era when saturated fat is "bad" and I don't agree with that either. But I must say that in my case I have no cravings whatsoever, in fact all junk food is repugnant to me. I keep my carbs below ten grams most days and "indulge" in my nightly potato and it works. You have to heal your biochemistry before you can lose weight and expect to KEEP it off.

    This information was really helpful because I never thought that I was addicted to sugar and I never imagine that was the cause of my bad mood and some times even depression.
    Thank you for sharing!
  34. bubba
    This information was really helpful thanks
  35. Janet
    The information that you provide us is very helpful and I want to thank you. this is my first day today on the Keto eating, it doesn’t seem to be to overwhelming to eat correctly,, I really enjoyed all of the comments from people, it would also be nice if they would put how many pounds they have lost since they started, it kind of gives a newbie Some encouragement to continue to go on those difficult days. I’m sure everyone has. My problem is that I am a grazer. if someone has some good ideas on what to eat for snacks I would appreciate it .

    I've only watched the first video and already I am thrilled to hear someone speaking the feelings, emotions and battles i have encountered with sugar, its soooo addicitive and its true to say i eat in secret, hide wrappers and Iie even to myself about how much sugar I consume. I am sure i will get a lot out of the other videos and am just delighted to have been told about this website. Thank you
  38. Niki
    All the more reason to cook your own foods. And pay a bit more for your pre-packaged food. If you look at canned vegetables, the cheaper brands (anything made by the Walmart brand for example) all have added sugar for some reason. It's almost like they added sugar because they are trying to make people addicted to them in order to choose to buy them. Read labels people.
  39. Kc
    No they don't have lots of carbs.

    I love pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Can't stop eating them! Do they have a lot of carbs ?

    Two years ago i started having night pain too in my right knee, which meant no sleep. I didnt want to take meds since they give me gastritis. In desperation i prayed n asked the Lord to heal me whichever way He wanted. A few days later i received a reply from d Lord through a thought CUT OUT SUGAR. Since i prayed for my fatty liver and to lose weight i thought that applied to it.

    I cut out sugar n a few days later i noticed there was no more pain n stiffness. I was extatic. I had fruit as usual. In 1 year i had lost 11kg or 24lbs. However, every time i cheated d pain n stiffness came back. I didnt have to test God, i just couldnt resist sweets. I still keep d ideal weight n my joints feel great. I noticed i hardly ever have migraine headaches now.

    Of course its nice to eat sweets but its not worth it when i have to suffer d drilling burning pain esp at night. My both orthopedic surgeons n d GP were shocked when i told them abt d connection between sugar n pain. They dont teach them that in med schools. They teach them how to prescribe meds n make pharma mafia rich.

  43. Liza
    I have not had sugar to speak of in years but my addiction is to Splenda, Nutrasweet, Stevia, Monkfruit, Swerve...my addiction is the sweet taste. I should probably include heavy whipping cream and half & half.
    I believe these have hindered my weight loss. I can not seem to get off them and stay off them. I’m fine till I eat a keto meal but afterwards the craving hits. Is anyone else experiencing this?
