    I think he says xylitol not 'prohibited' but not 'recommended' either. I only use it sparingly if I have to because I think if you have lots of sugar substitute (even if natural), your taste buds still have that desire for sweetness.
    Yes and no, if your getting your daily nutritional requirements, the experts believe and a lot of raw foodists don't get sugary cravings or any other cravings for that matter.

    That is awesome, is he still only eating this much sugar? How long did it take for him to lose the weight.

    I'm hoping to lose some weight, especially the 5kg left from my last baby, but from the book I think he kind of imply's that it takes longer for women to start losing weight, like up to 3 months I think.

    I didn't really have to change what I eat all that much, suprisingly! Bread, pasta, rice, veges, nuts, cheese, meat you can eat as much as you want. Tea and coffee is fine, without sugar. For me it was mostly stopping eating dried fruit (I love my sultanas), no more sultana bran for breakfast, no chocolate biscuits or desserts, no BBQ or tomato sauce or packaged salad dressings. I also changed my brand of natural yogurt. Other than that it is a pretty normal diet. You can eat water crackers and potato chips, so it's not really like being on a diet.

    I don't really think it is necessary to cut out sugar all together, but rather consume in moderation like most things. Sadly with everything packed full of it, it is really hard to do for most people.
    I think it is really important for my DS too. I didn't think I gave him all that much sugary stuff, but when I went through all the stuff in the cupbaords, a lot of the sugary stuff was things that I buy for him!! I think I will be a little more lenient on him, and let him have museli bars (because he really loves them), and also try and make the ice-cream and icy pole recipes from the second book, with dextrose instead of sugar.
    His birthday is coming up soon too, so will let him have party food for a day!
    I'm a bit worried that I will make him into one of Ned Flanders' kids from the simpsons!

    GOOD ON YOU!!!
    I haven't really found it as hard as I thought, and I found reading the book really motivating. I'm not sure what to do about DS at childcare though. He goes 2 days a week, and all the food is provided. From what I can see it isn't really sugary stuff anyway, so probably I should just go with it.

    Good on you! Will have to let me know how you go! I think on the website or blog he says something about cutting out sugar and upping your chances of concieving too!

    I'm very excited for my family and our health!

    My DH will be ecstatic, he has been saying how bad sugar is for ages now, and we are finally going to do something about it.
    My books took over a week to get here, but it was worth the wait. My DH has high cholesterol and high blood pressure, and also could loose a few kilo's, so I think it will be great to do it as a whole family thing, rather than just going on a diet myself.
    Good Luck, will have to let me know how you go!

    It is to loose weight, but the book suggests that it will also improve your cholesterol, blood pressure, chances of having a heart attack, or developing diabetes. And is good for your teeth!

    Did your kids find it hard to go sugarfree? I think DS will be ok, because if I tell him there is no icecream, or no biscuits and offer him an alternative, he is usually ok with it.

    does the book tell you what has sugar in it and what doesnt?
    can you eat fruit?
    what do you eat???
    The second book "The sweet poison quit plan" does go through what has sugar in it, I took notes as I was reading (geek alert!), but most things have the sugar content on the packaging these days, so it's not too hard if you're not sure. He also says "if it tastes sweet, don't eat it"
    You can have max 2 pieces of fruit per day (1 for kids), but he also goes into detail about which fruits have more or less sugar.
