  1. People need to be aware that even if they don’t use regular sugar (cane or beet sugar) in their drinks or cooking, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is added to many packaged goods. It is very important to read labels, and if you see the term high fructose corn syrup or HFCS, realize that it is SUGAR and do not buy that product. Only by boycotting such products will the food industry get the message that consumers do not need or want this added sugar. So when taking the Great Sugar- Out challenge, people need to exclude HFCS as well as regular cane sugar from their diets. I am ready to take the challenge and will encourage others to do so.

  2. I have been struggling with a sugar addiction for years, and have only just come to realize what it is for what it is.
    I always thought it was me, That I just have no willpower, that I was weak. I was a pig. It was simple Gluttony. I felt demeaned, like a failure. Like, unworthy.. But I know now, through research and experimentation in my diet that I have a sensitivity, nay, a serious addiction, to sugar. I can’t stop, I try and try to get off it, but I binge and binge and binge!
    I realised the true extent of it, when I quit smoking. It was EASY to give up smoking compared to attempting to get off the white horse. Seriously, there was no comparison. The withdrawl and cravings for sugar are MUCH much worse.
    My whole house is a sugar shack, so I’m scared. My room mates bake constantly, have huge bags of bread and boxes of cereal, hot chocolate mix, bags of sugar, dried fruits and a whole host of High GI foods and triggers. So does my boyfriend.. I try to avoid it, but it feels so unfair! I want to plow through it! I want to binge until I burst! Sugar has such a hold on me its terrifying!
    I want to be free!! Please help me!!

  3. I cut out refined sugars and processed foods for 6 mos. once, back in 06 and it felt so good! But, little by little I am back to my old diet. One thing I have totally given up, though, is soda, and I’ve never had a desire to go back to it. I hope this sugarout will be the boost I need to get back on track!

  4. I’m giving it my very best try. I know what helps for me is to limit the amount of time I’m in front of the TV and keep my hands busy. If it’s cold outside and I can’t dig in the dirt, I will sew (and seeing that it’s around 0 here today, I imagine I’ll sew). I know it will be hell but nothing good ever came easy. I am diabetic–my life depends on this.

  5. I’m trying to sign up for the Sugar-Out Challange, but it just keeps directing me back to the same page where I clicked the links to sign up.
    Hoping whoever moderates this can help.

  6. I’m having the same problem. I really want to sign up, but it keep bringing me back to the same page. Being a sugar addict is frustrating enough, help??

  7. Well, I can’t take the physical onslaught of miserable symptoms anymore. I am fed up and want to live, not just exist. I want to do this and do it right. I have to. My life depends on getting control of my hypoglycemia. “Just Do It!” With God’s help, I’ll get through this and come out a better person all around.
