4.6 Pound Loss -- Finally!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I had been at the same weight for weeks, then we had a "tight" week money-wise! I was out of so many foods, so I went 4 days with no sugar, no tea, and just the bare amount I could afford. I think I "shocked" my system, and finally broke through that plateau!

    Stevia is a good sugar substitute, as is xylitol. Both are natural sweeteners. I can't say for sure about stevia, but you can use xylitol just like you would sugar.

    I can vouch for that! I did 2 weeks of no sugar and lost so much weight I almost did not recognize myself. lol

    4 days without added sugar will do the trick! Try giving it up totally and see what happens emoticon
