Does anybody use the DaVinci syrups? All the low carb sites seem to take upwads of a fiver for postage, which is putting me off.

I could do with joining this thread. I know I don't react well to sugar and I don't even really like sweet things, but it's so addictive! :eek: I've found myself eating more and more chocolate and other sweet things, over the last few years and I've piled the pounds/stones on as a result.
Tomorrow will be day one of sugar-free cold turkey for me.

not heard of curried eggs, think I'll try that. what curry paste do you use? no sugar?
Not sure but the H&B choice might have a sugar alternative in it?
I have now found a 96% one and there are 100% ones too, so going to try those.
I also found a 70% one with only cocoa and milk, no sugar! so might give that one a go too!
I've had to buy the Lindt 90% for now, as the Greens and Black one was uneatable.
Just weighed myself today, and in the last month lost 9llbs, with 6.6 of that being fat, so pleased with that..well I was a bit disappoint as 9 doesn't sound that much, but after thinking about it, I didn't start this for the weight loss, and I haven't limited at all the amount of food I eat, so hitting the top of the healthy weight loss range of 2llbs a week, which seems to be the stated healthy amount to lose in a week, is not to bad really!

No, I know LC is not low sugar - was just asking for my diabetic hubby, I want to get them for him but not if they taste awful

I made my own curry sauce - fried onion and garlic in oil, added the seeds from 3 cardamom pods, some garam masala, black pepper, onion granules, cumin, turmeric, paprika, chili powder and a teeny bit of grated ginger. Then I added a little chicken stock, and thickened with cornflour. Added two halved hard boiled eggs and simmered for a few minutes.
The H&B chocolate is sweetened with xylitol. I am avoiding sugar but not natural sweeteners or xylitol, so that suits me.
Well done on the weight loss, that's a lot to lose in a month!

Welcome Sky_How was it? Killed anyone yet? :rotfl:
Seriously, the first 3 weeks I found were the hardest. Women have extra problems that go hand in hand with our cycles. Persist and you will be rewarded.
Its been 3 months now and I still have to actively remind myself that I don't have food with sugar. Mum made the baby some custard to take home with us and as I was putting it away with some other items for the fridge this morning, my instinct was still to take a spoonful of it, on autopilot. This is where being alert really helps.
When I think about my sugar journey, and the amount I have put through my body for over 40 years I am ashamed and thankful of my health. There is no way I would ever treat someone else this way.
Until Sunday 10 July
Here’s what we know
