    I already have pretty much cut out sugar. I’ve had a 5-lb bag for years. I also am careful about sugar in processed foods, but I do once in a while buy something that has sugar in it, although I can’t recall. Perhaps a yogurt kind of thing. I use pure maple syrup and honey for bread baking, and it is so nice! Also Truvia for tea.

I’m not willing to cut out all fruit products entirely – after all, fruit is also full of vitamins and fiber.

    For me, that’s actually quite easy as I religiously swore off any form of refined sugar my freshman year in college (a long long long time ago) when I had a particularly nasty case of mono and my then boyfriend’s mom who was a doctor with a strong leaning toward natural medicine and healing completely transformed my diet and lifestyle.

    While I have strayed in some ways and on some occasions – I never went back to eating the bad stuff, in part because once I gave it up, I completely lost my taste for not only sugar but pretty much all junk food in general. Most of it really doesn’t tempt me anymore (OK – I still get tempted in really fine bakeries and have a weakness for dark, bittersweet chocolate – but for the most part I have a pretty high resistance to junk.

    The hard part has been weaning my Honey/Hubby off of the bad stuff (he had a lot long to get hooked on the poison) but gradually he’s coming around. He no longer has a taste for fatty/salty foods – but his sweet tooth is a harder addiction to break. He now uses honey as a sweetener – but his sweet tooth is still open to temptation.

    Aside: The good news is that our bodies really do not naturally crave crap – when you give it up, it does get easier – it really is like a bad habit/addiction and you will not only lose weight, you’ll feel a lot better too!

    Hi! I cut out sugars by looking at package ingredients and, if any type of unnecessary sugar is added, I don’t buy it. We don’t add sugar to anything like cereals or fruits. I think they taste better without anyway. Thank-you!

    It’s so easy to consume sugar through drinks. I haven’t had juice or soda for nearly a year. My husband and I started Paleo several months ago, and I’ve been amazed at how many desserts you can make that are completely sugar free and still taste awesome. Avocado chocolate mousse is my new fav.

    To be honest, I’m not sure which is more of a risk for the long term – sugar or artificial sweeteners. I try to balance intake of both, and moderate intake of both. But neither is completely off my plate at this time. It doesn’t help that I have negative reactions to stevia which might simplify matters if I could consume it without issues.

  185. To be honest, I have been trying to cut back by making more foods from scratch and controlling the ingredients. I have even stared my own little garden (we’ll see how it turns out) and hopefully that will give me more control by doing it myself.

    First I would cut out sugar in the obvious ways with the food or drink that we know contains lots of sugar like soda, candy, cookies, cake, ice cream. After getting rid of the obvious culprits, then I would start looking for it in other foods that I might not think contain sugar, like cereals, pastas, canned vegetables.
