With a child (well teenager now) whose body has never coped well with sugar we've always tried to reduce the added sugar intake, but as DD has got older I've slackened off.
Reading both of these books, I really like the concepts and ideas, so we're doing it!
I'd love to share tips and ideas with others that follow the same sugar free ideas.
Anyone with me?

Who follows the 'Fat Revolution' or 'I Quit Sugar' regime?

We do My kids are a little younger than yours though (just about 7 and 10).
With the girls we keep sugar free at home, when we are out I don't push it. They now are aware of how much sugar is in different foods and make better choices on their own. My DD10 now works out how many teaspoons of sugar are in different foods by reading the labels and dividing by 4.
I have The Fat Revolution recipe book which has been great, although I think I can find enough recipes online and didn't need to by the book.

I'm starting to cut sugar out of my diet. I have a couple of the 'I quit sugar' books and the recipes I've tried have all been amazing!

I'm about to make these Anzac biscuits, but I'm going to substitute the flour for almond meal as suggested by someone in the comments. Anzac biscuits are a big hit in my house, so I hope these hit the spot.
I made the Fat Revoluations chocolate cake yesterday and it was so very bitter ... threw it all in the bin (huge waste of money )

We do the no sugar thing We make most things from scratch anyway and I discovered a couple of years ago that cutting out sugar really helped my irregular heartbeat.
I got the IQS books when they came out and have lots of little recipes I've invented for us. We just do it without thinking because anything sugary tastes horrible and artificial to us now

How long have you been doing low/no sugar? The cake probably won't taste any good until your taste buds have adjusted. I started before the rest of our family and for a while they hated anything I cooked that I thought was just right.
An example of my taste change is I used to only drink sweet desert wines anything else was just disgusting. I can now drink a dry red and I think it tastes pretty good, this was a huge thing for me
It takes about 2-6 weeks or so for your taste buds to adjust.
