I still feel like dark chocolate isn't sweet enough for my liking but I have it sometimes when I want chocolate but am trying to avoid the extra sugar content of milk chocolate.
    Definitely. Your 'tolerance' for sweetness decreases.
    I useto eat white chocolate, then stopped and now I found it disgustingly sweet.
    And now I find milk chocolate too sweet and have started to sway towards dark chocolate. Mind you I do eat a lot of sweet stuff but I have significantly decreased the amount of chocolate I eat over the years.

    When my dad was first diagnosed with diabetes he started to use sweetners in his tea. The nurse told him to stop using sweetners as well in order to cut out any sweet tastes from his diet, that would be the only way to rid yourself of sweet cravings.

      That might explain why diabetics are advised to not buy diabetic chocolate. I've never liked white chocolate.

I was so distraught that I ended up scoffing a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts to get over it.

        Ok.

        Next time, just don't leave bags of maltesers on tables with tablecloths.

        • Tbh, I was kind of hoping we'd all sail through this without much trouble... And maybe move on to something else.

          Let's all all keep going inshaa'Allah.

          Much better off without these things.
          I know we say in moderation, but for a lot of us that becomes more than in moderation.

          Almost forgot.

          Can we also be very careful to keep packets of maltesers off our tables.

            I can cut carbs easily alhumduilillah perhaps that can be our next challenge?

            My post probably sounds like I eat a lot of sugar but I don't. I know even a small amount of poison can be lethal but I seem to tell myself a tiny bit of sweet stuff is ok. Even with the Paksitani desserts I will have just a few spoons.

            You know when a little neice or nephew has baked something (sweet) and then comes and drops it off and asks you how it tasted, how can you not try what they made.

                      • day 18

                        Im doing good. The cake was the last thing I knew I was going to eat that had sugar in it so I think I will be all good from here. I was on vacation so I wanted to live my life.

                        That being said, as someone who usually doesn't have a very good relationship with food I know that abstaining from sugar could lead me back into some bad habits that I used to have. Ive been trying not to obsess over food so much because it really really stresses me out. So if I'm held back a couple more days, it's because I'm trying not to go crazy thinking about "good" and "bad" foods. But I''ll try my best to continue.
