    Hello Ruth,

    That's bad news :-(     I'm sorry to hear that it's not working as you would like.

    • Did David respond?  If so, what did he say?
    • Have you read his books? Especially Sweet Poison Quit Plan?
    • Have you done a dietary diary for two weeks to determine how much fructose you are ingesting? (let me know if you need help with this johnn31@bigpond.com ).
    • Are you checking Nutrition Information Panels [NIP] to ensure that you do not buy any processed food with more than 2 grams/100grams of "sugars"?
    • Yoghurt is OK to 5%  because that is lactose which metabolizes as glucose.
    • How much fruit are you eating daily? Fruit juices??
    • Watch out for "low fat"foods  - they often contain a lot of salt and sugar which the manufacturers use to replace the flavour removed with the fat.
    • I  wonder if your GP  can rule in/out  any genetic influences. Overweight family members across the generations?
    • Is your BMI  over 25? 30?  Is your waist over 80cm? Do you know how to calculate BMI? [Body Mass Index].
    • If you are constantly hungry your appetite-control system is not working. Your brain is not getting the message that you have had enough to eat. That means that you are still ingesting more than 10 grams of fructose a day, or that there is something amiss with your metabolic system.

    If some of these questions seem simplistic, it is because I have no way of knowing how knowledgeable you are on this subject, other than by asking.

    DON'T GIVE UP :-)

    JohnN
