I think the amount is the key. 1 gram shouldn't hurt you. And if you are losing and able to cut the cravings, then its working. Cindi

I just discovered that All Bran Buds has 8 grams of added sugar (including high fructose corn syrup) compared to Fiber One which has 0 grams. Sorry to have to say that after a week of enjoying the added crunch from the Buds in my yogurt, I'm going back to Fiber One.
I guess we all have to decide for ourselves what sacrifices we are willing to make, right?

I have used the PB2 in the past and yes there is sugar in it, along with many of the other peanut butters. Technically you are detoxing from sugars on phase 1. You are trying to eliminate cravings/triggers. But as T pointed out, our salad dressings we are allowed also frequently have sugar in them (which is why we are limited to 3gms/serving). The small amount isn't going to stop you from losing - the issue would be more of triggering you if sugar is a problem for you. So continue to use (I am not about wasting food in this economy) if it isn't a problem and just be aware!
I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie ----------------------- Kierae
technically....no. However, I still eat over the counter dressings that have sugar in them, i just make sure it's a low amount. Sugar can be masked in many forms, I think the worst of which is high fructose corn syrup.
