I am finding this truly hard. Cos as you said, I've reached for the sugar every day for years and years. I'd have a few biscuits watching TV and even a whole packet of sweets while knitting!

I'm just concentrating on obvious sugars for now - no sweeties, no sugary cereals and no biccys. When I get good at this I may start looking for the not-so-obvious sugars - like what is in processed food and so-called healthy drinks.

I was doing week for the most part? wk1 a little honey. It took a couple of days to really get started. Now about 3pm I get the shakes...is it sugar or carbohydrates? Yesterday I had 1 slice of bread w egg white and felt much better...I slept all night. I'm now trying to figure out maybe that chocolate I was eating was a craving for carbs. hmmm. emoticon

BTY my 18w pants can now be taken on/off without unfastening them. emoticon

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

List of Sugar Withdrawal Symptoms
Feeling sad or down. I will admit, this is then number one thing I would experience when I would come off sugar. But have hope, it would only last a few days, thank God! That is one thing that really motivated me to stay away from sugar because I hate feeling sad and it started to not be worth it, the trade-off of having sugar to being really down for a few days. For me I know this is a major sugar withdrawal because I do NOT experience sadness on a regular basis, only when I am coming off sugar. Its very important if you struggle with depression already, that you guard yourself against this and make sure are aware of this. The good news is, I have seen many people who struggle with moodiness and depression GREATLY improve when they no longer have a sugar addiction. Personally I think a lot of people who struggle with this would see an improvement when they sugar withdrawal 300x225 Sugar Withdrawal Symptomsbreak the sugar addiction.
Headaches. I personally never had this sugar withdrawal but I have heard some say they do.
Fatigue. If you have been jacked up on sugar all the time, your body is used to that rush but you have also really stressed out your adrenal glands, which can make you more tired. The ironic thing is, since I no longer am a sugar addict if I do have sugar, I am so tired that night, it literally puts me to sleep. I really can’t believe it! And when I wake up the next day, I almost feel hung over I am so tired. I never realized that as much when I ate sugar all the time.
Sleep patterns affected. Remember you are detoxing off a poisonous substance that is toxic so you are going to be detoxing as it gets out of your body. If you were addicted to sugar, your body was all out of whack from having blood sugar spikes to insulin surges and your body needs some time to balance back out.
Sugar cravings. Now this one is the obvious side effect. Once you stop eating sugar, one sugar withdrawal can be ridiculously intense cravings for it. Remember, you may be stopping something that has been a habit of yours for 20 years so give yourself a break! Its normal to crave something that has been a part of your life for so long not only mentally but physically as well. Be encouraged that sugar cravings DO go away.
Take “The Quiz” to self-diagnose whether you even are a sugar addict or not, click here.

One of the most important things about breaking a sugar addiction is learning how to think differently about sugar and how you resist temptation in your life. Because if you get off sugar but don’t know how to stay off it, that is something that can be very frustrating.
