my first week of removing sugar from my diet is going well, one week down of my three month trial *grin*.
I've had no side effects or cravings as yet and I am sure the lack of cakes,
biscuits, chocolate, bread and jam, ice cream etc. is good for me.
No weight loss as yet however, but it is very early days.
Sadly my copy of Sweet Poison by David Gillispie hasn't arrived as yet but I have found another good book and website on removing sugar from your diet, by another Australian as well, Sarah Wilson of I Quit Sugar. As its an eBook, I was able to download it immediately and its a great read and its giving me great tips to help withdraw from sugar in my eating habits.
One of the pleasant surprises is that wine
and strong spirits, in moderation of course, can remain in my diet as the sugar from the fruit is used up during the fermentation process.
