Hello Ru!

In answer to your questions, I personally allow myself something small (serving size or smaller) to have as a treat. For me, I need to avoid it for the first few weeks, and then maybe once a week after that. I'm more of a everything in moderation kinda gal, but the hard part is moderation, lol.

Good luck on your journey!

I'm Ru (short for Ruth). I'm new to Spark after struggling horribly with sugar over the holidays. I've always had a sweet tooth but found myself obsessing with the sweets in the house (usually I don't have have them here). I've now gotten rid of them all but am trying to decide if it's better to completely eliminate sweets from my diet, or as some recommend, allow myself a small treat regularly so as to not binge. There seems to be conflicting advice on this. So I'm wondering what has worked best for those of you like me who struggle with sugar addiction. Also, if you eliminate sugar, where do you draw the line? There's sugar in so many things & what about sugar substitutes, sugar free, fruit sweetened, etc? Thanks!
