                  I'd suggest giving it up gradually because it might be a big shock to the system to do it all at once. I think you probably will get withdrawal symptoms because sugar is quite addictive especially refined sugar. I've thought about this as well because a lot of people on lyme forums have said sugar is bad for you, can feed candida and make illnesses worse but I also know about dates and honey being from the sunnah and i'm not convinced that they're bad for me so I tried to cut down my sugar and chocolate intake but I still have dates and honey. I found that I could reduce the amount of sugar I have in tea but couldn't have tea without sugar... so I guess there's a limit to how much I could give up.

                  Having said that, I'm fairly diligent about avoiding things like fizzy drinks, juices, cordials etc and mainly drink water, 1-2 cups tea a day and a honey lemon drink I take for health reasons. I used to have a twirl bar everyday but now I buy a pack of 5 twirls and it lasts more than a month. I also find I can generally stay away from sweet things and desserts day to day but during my monthly cycle, I need a bit of chocolate or something for a couple of days so don't feel guilty if you find you slip up a bit on a monthly basis.

                      i gained 20 pounds in the coarse of a year. i stopped exercising, ate unhealthy, especially lots of sweets and soda. i looked in the mirror and my gut was staring me in the face. it was a sore for sight eyes. so this past Ramadan, I gave it all up completely and dropped about 23 pounds in 4 weeks. 30 days of oatmeal for suhr, and kachuri/sana for iftar. i feel great!

                            Yeah I decided to cut down on it in tea myself, but at the same time I also decided to cut down on caffeine. I do eat sweets like cookies/cake when the family makes them though, but it's not that often and as noobz said, it's okay in moderation. I never did like most junk food anyway. Honey and fruits are still good though, that's not bad sugar. But of course one should not overdo it there either.

                            I am feeling the withdrawal though, even though I did try and make it gradual. I had a moderate headache all of yesterday and a mild one today. Hopefully by after tomorrow all should be normal. But this isn't because of the sugar, it's because of the caffeine.

                              Yeah I start this diet change tomorrow :insha: was meant to start today but my friend bought me dessert and I couldn't say no :P

                              Anyway, starting tomorrow the only sugar I'll have is the 2 tea spoon in my tea/coffee, and sugar found in fruits/foods. Eventually I'll either cut out the sugar in tea/coffee or bring it down to 1 teaspoon idk.

                              Ali, I cut down my caffeine from 4-5 cups a day to 1-2, wasn't hard for me but everyone is different. :insha: you will be fine.

                              Musicisme: because im bitter and sugar is too sweet
                              Gone with the wind.
