Can I still join? I know I'm a bit late here, but I've been lurking and wanting/trying to give up sugar for months (years?) now. I got inspired here and decided to start with just kicking refined sugar - thanks for this thread - you guys have inspired me!
I made it 5 days easily, but then caved and am back on ice cream now.
: That is one of my greatest vices - the candy, I can live without, oh, except for dark chocolate, which I don't plan to quit because I can control my habit.
So, here are my main problems:
1) I need to get off ice cream. I made my own a few weeks ago with maple syrup (I have an ice cream maker), but I don't know if I can control any sort of ice cream habit, natural sweeteners or refined ones. What can I substitute?
2) I am a bake-a-holic. Yes, I've been baking with blackstrap molasses and Rapadura, but do I really need to bake something every day? Cookies, brownies, you name it. It's got to stop!
So, I'm here for help and support, if I'm not too late to join!
