I’ve slowly but surely come to realise that I have a major problem with sugar/sweets/biscuits etc.
I was wondering if anyone has any foolproof strategies to limit sugar intake - one portion a day maybe - but actually stopping after that one which I find impossible to do!
Many Thanks 😊

It doesn't work for everyone (though I'm not the *only* one for whom it did): Eating more fruit helped reduce my cravings for less nutrient dense more calorie-dense sweets like candy, cookies, cakes, etc. I started with 3 servings of fruit every day, and did have to exercise some will power at first to avoid the other stuff; but after a while things like grocery store cookies weren't even appealing, just *too* sweet, and too simple tasting. After a while, I was able to reduce the fruit servings, and keep the effect. Nowadays, I like the occasional special dessert, but I don't crave the sweet snacks like I once did. YMMV, but might be worth a try.
FWIW, this was a tip from a registered dietitian, as a strategy to try.

I am reading "Sugar Crush" and it's helping me understand what sugar does to our body. Also checked out Dr. Eric Berg DC on YouTube. I like him because he gets straight to the point without some long intro. It's helping me (as well as my bloodwork saying I'm pre-diabetic).
