    DS and I only have one serve of sugar a week, though we do eat honey

    When I eat sugar more often I crave it madly, this way I feel so much better and DS's behaviour is great. Then we just enjoy our one sweet treat a week

    If anyone would like some sugar free recipes (though they do use a small amount of dates or honey for sweetness) let me know and I'll share

    Count me in also.. I ate so much junk over the weekend to wake to be healthy today. So far so good- no sugar wanted or needed

    It's hard for me to say exactly how long withdrawal lasted for me because I stopped a few other things at the same time (gluten in particular), but I would guess around 1-2 weeks with the worst craving around days 2-4.

    I don't have honey either, although my children do. The only sugar I have is 1-2 pieces of fruit/day.

    Sugar is not your friend honestly... it may taste nice, but it is linked with so many health problems. Throughout history it has only been an ocassional treat, until recent times.

    Sweet Poison is a very interesting read. If anyone is wondering how sugar can be so bad, they should find a copy of this book. There are lots of other resources too, but I thought Sweet Poison summed it up really well.

    I find that if you can get through three days you're fine. After that the cravings will ease a lot... By the time a week has passed there's no sign of them

    I totally agree! Just pick a time to start when you have some moral support, and take it a day at a time.

    It's totally worth it.

    Even if you just try it for a month and see if it works for you

    We're another sugar free family. We're also gluten free and vegans. (We eat honey for medicinal purposes tho, but it's raw, organic and local)

    Just a tip, if you google raw food desserts you will be able to have your cake and eat it too!!! You'd be amazed at what natural unrefined options there are!!!!

    GOOD LUCK!! Sugar does NOT make up a part of our diets, you CAN function without it!!
