I've been reducing sugar intake for awhile now, and have come to the conclusion that even small amounts in fruit have a very negative effect on me. Everything you just described, Ruthiegirl, and more. As hard as it may be to do, I think everyone should commit a week or so to sugar-free eating, even fruit, just to see how or if it affects them. I'm not suggesting giving up fruit in the long run, but to get a baseline for dealing with unavoidable sugar intake.
Hi Rachie hope things get better soon for you...?! It is daunting at first but great that you are at least acquainted with the BTD & some great tips in this discussion... Love your comment "one Christmas I ate too many chocolates & my willpower just never returned"
Early in Dec, I realised I needed to do something drastic, having gradually piled on weight in 2012 - partly due to losing my job & then facing several months of constant rejection, as well as allergies, where I'd not even know what I could actually tolerate...
Then after losing all motivation for anything - eating healthily, exercising, even housework (especially after a trip to Aus in June where I put on over 4 lbs after pigging out with family) I couldn't seem to break the cycle, after the overload of wheat & sugar, so I knew I finally had to take myself back in hand!!
So since early Dec I have managed to lose over 16lbs & have noticed along the way that I can only lose if I avoid all sugars/carbs AND exercise, plus drink plenty of water...
The days I have stalled or even put back on a tiny bit, have been due to a few nibbles of homemade shortbread (even compliant) &/or a piece too many of fruit!! I can eat apricots & an odd few slices of orange, but any other fruit with a higher fructose ratio to glucose stalls things ( as does white rice flour - in the shortbread)! One day just 8 cherries really got me & I gained Sure enough the fructose is way higher in them it has been really helpful to discover that, as I love fruit & veg but either group can have that imbalance!! I'm ok as long as I stick to that principle.. I think carrots may even have too high proportion of the wrong sugars btw

I've tried eating better for a few days, but over the last few days I've felt rubbish and so my diet has suffered. I don't know how to break this cycle.


I've incorporated having 1-2Tbls. of flax seed oil daily and if I'm feeling hungry when I shouldn't, I'll have 1Tbls. of flax oil immediately and the hunger goes away. My brain works better and I don't have to be distracted with unnecessary food cravings. Works every time!
