No More Added Sugar

#Day 4, tried this chocolat yesterday. It’s a new product wich I sell in the shop I work in.
It tasted good! White chococal with matcha and no sugar. Sweeted with Erythitol and Stevia.
It had the right melt in my mouth feeling. So this one stays!
So finally found a good crap replacer for the old crap I liked @Chiron :sunglasses::rofl:

Reset my counter on sunday because I had a piece of baklava. :sweat_smile:

These Highkey mini bites are pretty good with a generous dollop of creme fraiche. They are kind of dry, so the creme fraiche adds some moisture and a bit of natural sweetness.

I’d kill for some good baklava.
But I believe it has a tad bit of sugar in it.

Baklava is definitely a favorite for me, and a really high quality recipe is worth a little deviation for me, but sadly this one wasn’t that great.

Ok…my first time ever I guess: 10 days without sugar :blush:


It’s hard to not give in because of my emotional instability. Hope I can add more days.

I’ve stopped eating chocolate as the amount I was eating was ridiculous upto 400g (14oz) a day, without changing anything else I’ve already lost 1.5lb :grin:

I need some serious help. I’m 21yrs old & addicted to sugar / most processed foods. Anything that’s palatable & has empty carbs, I could eat for days on end no problem. Along with that I also struggle with binge eating disorder. At the start of this year after almost 3 months of binge eating sugary foods & processed carbs I decided it was time to get back on track & find myself again. Find the healthy person I know myself to be. So I set out to “quit” sugar & most processed foods, which lasted maybe 10 days or so at best. Then I quickly spiraled right back into the hole I had dug for myself, burying myself in it without a care. Only this time my actions had consequences I wasn’t prepared for. Over the next couple days I would start to experience mild chest tightness / discomfort & irregular breathing on & off. I would eat sugar & it would come, then after the sugar wore off ( an hour or so maybe longer ) it would go away. After a few days of that & ignoring the signals my body was sending me, I started having very sharp chest pain & also tightness. Which didn’t go away even after I stopped consuming sugar that day. It turned into a pain going down my right forearm & into my right hand. This scared the shit out of me. The next day my chest was better, still painful on & off throughout the day but better. My right forehand & hand still felt sharp & tingly. Each day would be better, & after a few days my chest felt normal & so did my breathing. It took a few days for my arm / hand to feel normal as well. After an experience like this I was terrified to ever consume sugar again, fearing I would overdue it & not get so lucky with my well-being. I vowed to quit sugar & most processed foods forever. I was done & had enough. I started out very strong & extremely motivated. Taking all the right steps to be successful. I almost made it to two weeks, until tonight happened. The cravings were too much for me, it was too hard & by the end of the day I just couldn’t do it. I ate about 3 handfuls of dates ( never done that before & it felt awful because dates are filling & not an empty food source ) to numb the discomfort from the cravings I was having, two non sugary protein bars, a lot of spoonfuls of sugary peanut butter which officially broke the vow that I had made to myself ( not that I was doing good anyway ) some peanut butter crackers, & some unsweetened dried mango. Now my night is officially over, my body can’t take anymore & I’m just done. Tomo is a new day but, I’m not sure where to go from here. I thought I had everything figured out & went about it the right way. I tried so hard & was so sure I was done with this behavior. Something obviously went wrong & I wasn’t prepared. So here I am, reaching out publicly & asking for help. I need it. I can’t do this on my own. If anyone here has any helpful advice please let me know. I’m open to all suggestions & any questions you may have. I just want to be free from this addiction. I want to be the kind of person who doesn’t allow an eating disorder to define them. Thanks for listening, if you took the time.

I’m happy to see this thread today! This is something I’ve been working on too, we are never in it alone. I really wanted an old favorite frozen coffee drink this week but I drank my tea instead and kept my counter going instead of resetting. :heart:
