    GrokRock,

    About ten years ago I was in a group that was focused on NO Sugar.

    I can say that the Forbidden part of it just didn't work for me. I have a problem with sugar - or at least I did have a problem with sugar and I've learned to manage it most of the time. Sometimes I'll still have an entire bag of cookies, but meh - it's not gonna kill me. I'm at a healthy weight and all my blood results are good.

    The NO part of our group became a big sticking point. Those trying to not eat any added sugar railed against those in the group who used the group as a kind of Confessional to talk about all the yummy treats they were so "bad" and had eaten.

    It set up a Us vs Them mentality in the group and led to the group self-imploding. I don't know what the solution for that is - but the setting up of a group with its banner being a "NO SUGAR" graphic would put me off joining. It sounds way too much like a Rule and there are enough rules in life, to be honest.

    I'm sure you will find your way. I'm just saying that expecting a sub-group on MFP to be the answer may be over-looking the very best Experience Strength and Hope that this site has to offer. There are solutions all over this site.
