Help please with no sugar diet? And diary about how I am getting on.


Hi I have heard that if you cut sugar out of your diet you can lose weight easily .
So has any one tried it?

And how many grams of sugar should I be trying to eat?

And is the sugar in fruit good for me? So can I eat as much as I like?

I have 2 stone to lose.....

Does anyone join me on trying to cut out sugar?
Which is hard right now because all my kiddies are eating chocolate all the time... Lol xxxx

Have a look at 'I quit sugar' by Sarah Wilson. She has an initial detox plan which includes no fruit but once you've done the initial total sugar free period you can reintroduce fruit.

I'm currently reading David Gillespie''s Eat Real Food. I haven't got to the chapter about how to quit sugar yet lol. He advocates giving up sugar and adults can have two pieces of fruit a day and children one piece. He also says to avoid polyunsaturated fats found in seed and vegetable oils which is pretty much everything processed eg hummus and crackers because it causes irreversible diseases. He says do these two things and the weight will drop off. Margarine, for example, is incredibly bad.

Two years ago I did something similar but I ate lots of unprocessed real food - lots of veggies, good fats and protein. I was never hungry and lost lots of weight without trying. Once my little one us here I'm starting again so I would be keen for some support.

Oh yeah I love chocolate.

Lovely to hear from you spudstastic,
I will take a look at that book by Sarah Wilson.
And good luck with having your baby soon...

I have been on my sugar nearly free diet for 6 days so far, the first few days I found really hard, but today I haven't found it hard to want chocolate or sweet things, so that's good.
I am weighing my self tomorrow to see how much I have lost on my 1st week.

Well done on being sugar free for 6 days. Did you weigh yourself? How did it go? I think with sugar free is to just expect slow weight loss over a longer period of time.

I didn't buy a piece of beautiful cake at the farmers market yesterday so was very pleased with myself.

I have three stone to lose after baby is born. Hopefully just going to do it by not eating sugar and filling up on real food.

That's incredible. Well done. Do you feel better already? Are you finding it easier to stay away from the sugar?

I'm hoping to lose my first stone in one day by having a baby lol.

Hi thanks yes I do feel better, my jeans feel a bit looser.
No today I had a little cheeky hot chocolate, but tasted so much better than I remember.
I am back on track now, just needed a little sugar as a treat for doing so well.
You must be so excited so nearly time to have your baby....
I never felt the need to lose my baby weight for at least a year after having my babies.
Wish I could lose 1 stone in one day lol....

After dd the baby weight just fell right off. I didn't put on too much weight with her. I was still overweight though and got it off a year later. This time though I've been pregnant and/or comfort eating for my losses since June 2014 (1 mc and 1 mmc) so I'm mentally ready for a lifestyle change. I'm going to focus on health and hope that weight loss is a happy side effect. Though my parents get here in two weeks and they love cake etc more than I do. My mum and I are a bad influence on each other lol.

Sorry to hear about your two losses, I normally love cake my children are always making cakes.
But the thought of not eating cake, is fine.
I think the only thing I am missing the most is a crunchy bar.
Wow just noticed to have two days intil you are due, hope you are not late.
I was 12 days late with one of my children, every day hoping the pains would start, but luckerly my others was on time.
Hope your birth goes well.xxx

I think I'm going to be late. Baby feels pretty comfy in there.

I had to have cake and Thai takeaway yesterday but I'm still waiting until after baby to do this. I have mild sickness still and aversions to vegetables.

They don't sell crunchie bars here in nz but if I was in the UK I'd miss the cookies from Tesco. Yum
I'm from England originally.
