Wow, I finally made it here to these new boards. I'm a bit disoriented...

Anyway, about refined sugar, I gave it up all together, cold turkey. To me it's like heroin; I truly am an addict. Either I need to eat large quantities of it all the time, or I can't have any at all. So, in the interest of my health, I've opted to have none at all. I do eat a lot of fruit (fresh and dried) and products sweetened with fruit juice. I buy jams that are sweetened with fruit juice and sweeten my own baked goods with fruit juice. Sometimes I think the proliferation of sugar in our society is some sort of conspiracy to keep us all complacent. The fact that people will pay the amount they do for a soda that is basically just sugar water that rots their teeth and makes them fat supports that theory. And don't even get me started on Nutrasweet! At other times, I think I'm just paranoid. In any case, I consider myself a sugar addict in recovery.
