    2nd day without sugar, grrr how long does this last?


    Hi Kitten.

    I know exactly how you are feeling. It is like a proper withdrawal and is no fun.

    I gave up sugar in my tea a year ago and I still miss it. Out of interest, what (if anything) are you using as a substitute? I’m not a dietitian but I would never, ever touch aspartame again as long as I live. It made me so ill.

    I can’t tell you how long it will take to not miss sugar anymore as we are all so different. I still miss it but after a gastric bypass, your body reacts negatively to it (dumping syndrome) so it’s not worth the risk. The same goes for food high in fat.

    Hang in there, Kitten. It does get easier.


    Hi Doodah

    I use Monin sugar free on my readybrek, and have cut out tea altogether – I bought a muller light youghurt, then realised I could not have it, as it had aspartame and gelatine in it.


    Oh, Kitten, I truly feel for you. It all seems such an uphill task at the beginning. I actually cried sometimes as I felt so deprived of my old food ‘friends. But then I decided to look at it from a different perspective. They were not my friends at all: but enemies. They were the things that had brought me to the point of needing weightloss surgery.

    By choosing not to have the yoghurt, you are showing the grit and resolve needed to make things better for yourself. You should feel very proud! It TOUGH, really tough. But you are already making the necessary changes. WELL DONE my lovely 🙂
