How Much Sugar?

It's going to hit the fan at my place soon.

    So I have stopped buying sugary food.  But I'm doing as David suggested and just using up the sugary food in the house (I'm going cold turkey though).

    I have a hubby who is relosing some weight, a 20 year old son (who is currently losing a few kgs and buffing up in the gym, and eating low carb) and a 23 year old son who is a low to normal weight.  They all are within normal weight ranges.

    There have been no complaints about the lack of chocolate bars.  The lolly jar is still half full.

    Well soon the juice is going to run out, the barbecue and tomato sauce too.  Only the older son drinks the juice.  But both love their sauce.

    Just getting some moral support on here to see it through and not cave.  They can buy their own if they like but I'm not going to poison them any more.

    I think I've made the dog sick though.  I gave her my leftover cereal that I knew the rest of the family wouldn't eat and some dried fruit too (bad dog owner!!!).  Anyway, she's been having vomitting on and off and now I think she has a urinary tract infection. She's never been sick before.  She's often had leftovers but not sugary ones.

    Hi, Nadine, I think you're right. I stopped buying all those things, too, my Dearly Beloved now buys his own, but his Physio lady told him on Thursday, that he's overweight & he told her about me being fructose free, so she must have said something to him, as he's not touched the cake he bought 3 days ago!!  Nor bought any more biscuits ! So that's good. I still have a little of my favourite sauce, HP, but I only have about 2 teaspoons maybe once a fortnight. I like it on my sausages, and on the accompanying veg. Kev also knows not to use more than 1 tablespoon of the Worcestshire Sauce in any meals he's preparing, so we don't have much of that, either. I gave away the Sweet chilli sauce  (was sad, as loved my chilli sauce) I now use cayenne pepper if I want to make a dish hot. 

    That's a great thing you did, I wish you well with it.

    Spread the Love

    Sylvia, it would be so easy peasy to make your own sweet chilli sauce, using chillis and glucose syrup and maybe a couple of other things.
