        Just trying to keep it real sister definable. You are all fully grown adults behaving like little kids unable to say no when offered some candy.

        Empty your pockets of money, you will quickly learn what is important to eat and what is not.

          Even though I can maybe see why you would be making these comments, I have to say it's a little bit unfair br Zi-zizou... if we eat a certain way for a very long time, is it really quite as easy as just saying no? There are other things going on as well for a lot of people and we're not all strong and weak in the same ways.

          (Thinking of people close to me who have or have had a very difficult time trying to clean up their diets over the years but keep regressing after putting in so much effort.)

          :-(

          What you are saying is that when you have had it so easy for so long it's not easy to go cold turkey. I understand bro.

          Some people struggle with self-control. You don't need to be so ... discourteous.

            Self control or self harm?

          It sure is tempting to jump on the bandwagon especially given that I have had a very good past record for not even coming close to sugar and recently I have found myself losing interest in my chocolate ice creams....

          I guess when I finish my next batch of five Ill join as well in shaa Allah.

          Since the beginning of August, I've lost 10 kilos by not eating added sugar or flour. I can eat anything else I want in any quantity, even dairy.

          I try to walk at least a mile or two a day as well. I've been injured for the past 3 weeks so I can't exercise, but I found even just walking helps up the metabolism and burn off calories.

          Individual body chemistry determines a lot of how we react to diet and changes to it. Sugar and caffeine are highly addictive for me. If I don't have the same amount every day at the same hour, then I get bad headaches.

          The no sugar, no flour diet really works. I'm sleeping better, losing weight and feeling less tired throughout the day.

          Al-Hamdu li-Llahi.

            Brother Zi-zizou - you can blame the individual for lack of self restraint, if it makes you feel good.

            But it can't be denied that "sugar" is addictive and is added to almost everything available. Most of society is conditioned to turn to sweet things. And it takes time and effort and a strong will to get rid of years of this "conditioning".

            Recently there was a petition to get the sugary foods off of the aisles near the tills in the supermarket. This is because, by placing them there - customers were more prone to buying them (subconconsciously). Therefore their consumption of sugar intake would increase.

            Also - in times of celebration or sadness - we are "told" to eat something sweet.

            Perhaps there is a worldwide conspiracy - Keep one half of the population dependent on the obviously harmful substances like cocaine, etc, and the other half dependent on the hidden drug, like sugar(?)

              Alhamdulillaah - I'm glad you have found what works for you brother.

              Yes, exactly - everyone's individual body chemistry is different. Some people are susceptible to getting addicted more easily than others too.

              May Allaah grant you a speedy recovery.

              Thank you for your insight.

              That's pretty healthy. Low carbs, low fat, low sugar. No caffeine.

              How do you get your 2500 calories? Vegetables and salad?

                    I think it's something to do with the weather. When its cold I have more sugary treats. Only way I can justify it.
