The other day I got involved in a soul stirring conversation on one of my favourite, honest and down to earth foodies Facebook page about the controversial topic that is the ‘sweet life without the sugar’ aka the sugar free lifestyle.
It became apparent to me that there are many people, who like me, see this sugar free propaganda/ yet another diet but with a heap of celebrity and tv endorsements, as fear mongering at its finest (the diet industry has to have a favourite kid on the block after all!) and that quite simply buying into the taboo that sugar is like cocaine is just as tasty as the recommended 6 teaspoons a day of stevia (a shocking tasting sugar free sweetener…that sugarfree followers certainly wont admit to!).
I get asked a lot about whether quitting sugar is worth all the effort.
Because let’s be honest: we all know quitting anything you enjoy will always be an effort and it’s fact that we all enjoy sugar. I don’t tell people to gorge on sugar, like I don’t tell people to gorge on anything (vegetables include). Gorge isn’t in my vocab when it comes to eating and if you’ve been a follower of my work for some time you will know this.
