    I see way too many people complain about not losing weight in the forums

    Sugar is killing us all
    It sneak into everyone's diet (I am no exception)

    However, I've noticed many user diary's have at least two or more portions of sweets* everyday
    Sweets are a weekly cheat not a daily one.

    Get over your chocolate addictions, give up the processed junk , COMMIT TO YOURSELF "CHEATS ARE ONCE A WEEK" and you will see weight come flying off.

    Don't drink anything but water.

    Cheats are for mental balance so you don't go crazy, If you need some everyday you're as bad as an alcoholic, the difference is you just won't necessarily be douche with everyone... you'll be huge or on your way to being huge instead. (For the Ecto's Skinny fat is not better)


    *By sweets I mean anything sweet. No forgiving sweeteners... They're not better for you than sugar... none of them are so don't be fooled. Most are actually worst for you. One such example is Splenda it's sugar treated with arsenic. Look any sweetener up and you will find problems with them all. Even Stevia has is drawbacks, like lack of proper studies on it. The food industry is testing these products on us not releasing studied products for us.

    This post may seem negative but it really isn't I really want everyone to do well, I just get frustrated the food industry has us all wondering what good and what's bad. When really we all have a pretty good idea what's good for us.

    Hope you liked the rant...

    Dude, what do you think is sweetening all those Vega Smoothies you are consuming? You are basically having a milkshake every day. Relax, and stop judging other people.

    Or you could just stay within a calorie deficit and eat it in moderation, and here is the key phrase, if it fits in your macros. Also, maybe apply a little self control and common sense and don't have your whole carb macro be from sugary food? Would that be too much to handle?

    If sweets and sugars are out then I guess I fail and MFP will kick me off any minute now. Maybe I should just quit so that I can gain back all the weight I LOST while eating sweets in moderation. Im out.

    Wow someone who wants sweets everyday is as bad as an alcoholic?
    "everyone here is now dumber for having read that, I award you no points..."

    You ever known an alcoholic? Lived with one....been one yourself...had your family torn apart by it?
    Yea probably not.

    I eat loads of sugar daily and it hasn't prevented me dropping fat. It's just a carb*.

    I am just CRACKING up because I looked at your diary, and you have at least one "sweet" a day, whether it be a chocolate protein bar, angel food cake, maple syrup, etc... Hypocritical much?!?!


    IIFYM!!!!!
    I think you missed the "(I am no exception)" part of his post.

    WRONG!!! Splenda is a sugar molecule combined with an extra chloride atom!! You know... like in sodium cholride, magnesium chloride, potassium chloride! Do some research before you make proclamations (assumptions)!

    Edited to remove my assumption before I make an *kitten* out of myself too!

    It's tri-chlorinated.

    Because it's already a chloride... yes, I know.

    Alrighty then.

    So you're saying I can't lose 174 lbs if I eat sweet things? I'll take that under advisement.

    Oh, wait. I already did lose 174 lbs eating sweet things. Never mind.

    Keep your eyes out of other people's diaries if you can't handle people eating differently than you.

    Not to worry with enough carbs / sugar Type 2 diabetes is what you have to look forward to. As well as insulin shots, cuts that won’t heal, going blind and if you are lucky you will get a electric wheel chair when they amputate your legs.

    I'm pretty sure the ciggarettes are going to give me cancer and kill me loooooooong before the M&M's give me diabetes... and kills me.

    My opinion: sugar is toxic to your body. There are no health benefits to consuming it. If someone chooses to eat a crapload of sugar in their 20s and 30s, I'm not going to feel sorry for them when various health issues pop up at the age of 50.

    That being said, I do have the occasional bit of chocolate.
