    DS is only 19 months so he didn't get a lot of sugar anyway - maybe some biscuits for afternoon tea. Even so I think I see positive changes - he's not as whingy just before dinner time. Might be just a phase he's going through though.

    We had HUGE behavioral changes!! I thought 2yr old tanties were normal?! Well hitting, kicking, biting etc my 6yr old has never been the same!! Dd2 has NEVER done anything aggressive like dd1 did, funny thing is dd2 is the more feistier one!! My girls dont act out, are quiet relaxed and we are a relaxed family, they hardly ever muck up, we don't use time out, I dont know, just our experience but I wish I had changed dd1s diet earlier instead of the discipline we put her through.

    I think what you girls are doing is fantastic. I read that book a couple of years back and gave up for 6 months.

    I remember having bad sugar cravings for 2 weeks before it suddenly disappeared and I didn't crave sugar anymore. To get through those episodes I used to bake a banana and whip some cream up and have that or I'd stew a granny smith apple with some cinnamon. It took a little getting use to but once you stop craving the sugar, you'll be surprised at how much sweeter food taste!

    You might also want to check a really good doco. It's called Sugar: The Bitter Truth. You can find it on Utube.

    Good luck everyone!

    Day 4. I've had a dull throbbing headache all day. I'm not sure if it's this head cold which I've had for a week, the boring assignment I've been working on, or whether it is withdrawals. And my TWW is over for this month Probably a bit of each.

    I couldn't even be bothered seeing my PT so I cancelled this morning.

    I'm hoping it gets a lot better from here. It was just a crappy day all round. At least I wasn't actually craving anything. In fact now is the first time I've thought about chocolate all day, probably because of AF.

    How's everyone else's day been?

    Aww hun that sucks Sorry you had such a crappy day, I hope today is better.

    Day 6 for me and going strong! I keep getting really hungry through the night though? DS wakes for a feed at 3:30am and I am just so starving!!

    Yesterday I had a sort of mocha as a bit of a treat, it was AMAZING!!! I put about a teaspoon of cacao and a tiny bit of stevia in a mug, brewed some coffee and poured it in, topped up with hot and frothy almond milk and sprinkled cinnamon on top. It was so so amazing, I think I am addicted, uh oh!

    Try having a glass of fresh veggie juice, I've read that if your meeting your nutritional requirements you won't feel hungry. Hard when your breastfeeding!!! I use coconut water to boost up my supply.

    Mocha sounds yum. I'll give that a go tomorrow - I'm only having one coffee a day at the moment.

    shinebrite - the sweet poison book advises against juicing things as you get all the natural sugars, but not all of the fibre to go with it. I'm pretty much following the guidelines on the book for now. If I continue indefinitely I might change some things up in the future

    Today's a much better day for me. I'm feeling good.

    I'm supposed to be at work, but my sister (who looks after DS for me) isn't feeling well, so I'm waiting for her to tell me if she's going to be able to get out of bed today.

    I could have written this almost word for word!!

    Diet has such a HUGE effect on children... I wish it were more widely known. It would make life so much easier for SOOOOO many people.

    Oh that's a bum happygrl - veggie juice if it's freshly pressed has so many benefits because it's digested for you, to eat a kg of carrots it would take a few hours to digest but if you juiced that kg it would only take hlf hour and you would benefit from the nutrients straight away. Really good if your detoxing or having skin and digestive problems. After your book another good one to read is 'liver detox' by Sandra Cobot (I think that's the spelling) all baby steps hey!!

    Yes!!! I start studying natural medicine and naturopathy next week! I hope to be there to educate as there really isn't any out there!! I have already changed several people over to organic preservative and sugar free living from dds school just by telling them my story. At least that's a start!
