    *grin* I'm just loud and obnoxious, I told EVERYONE.  But, it's not a bad strategy to wait until they ask you.

    So far so good, nearly a week in and I have changed my eating habits a lot. I just eat whan I'm hungry and don't eat sugar and try to keep low low  carb. LOTS of protein. Chow down on a pork chop instead of breakfast cereal. I thought I would run out of steam under this regime but so far all good. 5lbs off. 25 to go. I have CREAM in my coffee once a day instead of milk! Very yummy and carb free! You have to forget all the old low fat nonsense. Reread Chapter 1 of "Sweet Poison" to see what's happened in the food industry in 50 & even 100 years.

    I agree - butter and full cream milk more than make up for not having sugar.

I can say that I am never hungry any more, and I used to be, or did I just want to eat something? But the "gotta have sweet stuff" thing seems to me like vegetarians who eat fake meat & sausages. No offence !

    *grin* I tend to agree with this though, but I can also see that if you're cooking for the family that's not sugar free, that makes it hard.  My family has learned what dextrose means, so I say 'glucose' now, too, although they know I do sugar free desserts only.

    I think the point here with the fake meat sausages/ fake sugar treats is that we are making healthier food choice (or possibley an environmental/conservation/animal protection choice - i.e I refuse to eat eggs or egg products that aren't made from organic free range eggs but i still eat eggs! just the better option) ...and why miss out on the flavour if you dont need to..?? Its about the substance not the flavour - if i was told sugar is all good so go for it, I'd keep eating it, but its NOT so substituting with a more healthful alternative is perfect. No harmful substance but get to still enjoy the flavour - win, win!! If we are talking chemical alternative then I disagree as this is still not a healthful option but this is the point for me - the healthier alternative and its a bonus that flavour doesn't need to be sacrificed... :-)
