WHY CUT SUGAR
We are programmed to love sugar! The reason is because in our Paleo days, sweet foods were safe foods, there is no poisonous food that is sweet. Many bitter foods were poisonous. Just think, how many times do you need to introduce an infant to a savory food? It has been shown that you need to give an infant a savory food 13 times before they like the flavor. How many times do you need to introduce a sweet food to them? Once!
Fructose is an addiction. Many people would like to argue this point. But the brain doesn’t discriminate substances. In the reward center of the brain, when you consume fructose or sugar, the dopamine receptors are stimulated. Over consuming fructose and sugar causes your dopamine receptors to down regulate, causing a larger “fix” to get the same high. It takes 3 weeks to break this addiction. And just as alcoholic needs to cut all alcohol to break the addiction, you need to cut out all fructose in order to beat this detrimental addiction. You can’t do it unless you know where it is hidden. That is the tricky part. An alcoholic easily knows what to cut out to beat their addiction and can avoid social circumstances where alcohol is present. But with a food addiction such as sugar, you can’t avoid social circumstances where sugar is present, you need to be strong. Food and sugar is everywhere! Work, school, sporting events, family gatherings, you need to be strong. I have more and more clients who are going to overeaters anonymous in order to beat their food addiction.
This addiction can give you a life of not only a large waistline, but it also starts the snowball effect of memory loss and Alzheimer’s. I am sadly watching my grandmother go through this right now. She is an amazingly strong woman who after my grandpa died; she decided to get her doctorate! She was always brilliant and loved to help teach kids to read, so she went on to learn more so she could pass on her knowledge. She could have traveled the world, but did this instead. The sad part was, by the time she received her doctorate, her memory declined immensely. Alzheimer’s is considered Type 3 diabetes. It is metabolic syndrome of the brain. Insulin resistance is a pre-curser to Alzheimer’s.
Nature’s Hollow has graciously offered a giveaway for my readers! Nature’s Hollow uses xylitol instead of sugar to sweeten their products. Xylitol is a 5-carbon sugar alcohol that is ideal for those concerned about sugar intake.

Losing weight has been the biggest benefit! My digestion and joint pain has definitely changed!
Because I have FINALLY learned when I eat crap, I feel like crap!

I love Nature’s Hollow honey and syrup. Would love to try their other products. I love not having the food cravings like I did when I ate sugar. If I happen to have a little bit of sugar now, the cravings come back in force!
eating sugar-free has stopped my cravings.
Love it Maria! Need to get back on track, thanks for all the great advice & giveaways!
I was addicted to sugar so bad I would drive to the store after dinner to buy a candy bar or get ice cream to feed this beast that craved sugar! I tried to keep it out of the house but I would cave and go make an extra trip just for the sugar! Now with the help of your amazing recipes, I don’t crave sweets. there is actually a candy bar that’s been in my kitchen drawer for almost two months because I don’t have any desire for it. I feel so much better these days!! also my waist line shows its support 😉
Eating sugar free has helped control my cravings
It has helped me deal with dysbiosis.
I’ve been type-2 diabetic and never want to be there again. Going sugar-free keeps cravings in check. Once I eat something with sugar it starts me on a roller coaster. I want more! I just talked with my partner, Greg, last night about going sugar-free and supporting one another in that. He eats a lot of snacks and things like store-bought cookies when I don’t make sugar-free ones. It is absolutely an addiction. Thank you for your site, recipes, and your knowledge you share on health and nutrition!
I love Nature’s Hollow. Their Raspberry Jelly and Apricot Preserves are very good on low-carb breads and muffins. I also bought their honey, but haven’t tried it yet. Eating this way cuts down on my inflammation and candida, keeps my blood sugars controllable and inflammation tolerable.
Since giving up sugar I have not had a cold or the flu. It’s been over 5 years!
Sugarfree is the only way to go …took me awhile but I managed to get one sugar addicted daughter off of sugar and carbs and she has lost 65 lbs … still working on another one and grandson but they are getting there lol… thanks for the great products
Question….The label states 9 carbs, 0 fiber, 0 sugars. Sugar alcohol amount isn’t specifically listed. I’m assuming the “9 carbs” is the sugar alcohol?
I would love to try these products! It’s so hard to find good SF products! I am insulin resistant and overweight and eating SF keeps me losing weight and keeps my A1c numbers normal.
Changing to a sugar free diet has helped me lose over 10 lbs (so far), and ditch my soda addiction!
Oh Maria! You give away the best stuff! Thanks!!
Thank you for offering this, Maria!
Being sugar free has freed me from the cravings I suffered every winter. That time period between Halloween and Christmas was a killer. I’m still learning about low carb and keto, but would love to try those products. I’ve always been wary of xylitol because I have a dog who can hear a peanut drop from the other room. Xylitol is toxic to dogs. With these I don’t think this will be a problem.
Eating sugar free has not only helped stop cravings but it’s helped my teeth! My dentist loves how much better my teeth have become over the past six months!
Because I am allergic to stevia I am especially interested in other sweeteners
that are not bad for you.
I’m new to keto and still balancing macros, but without sugar/flour driving my impulses, I’m in complete control when I’m around tempting foods and learning to eat for nutrition rather than stress or pleasure. It’s quite a relief!
Eating sugar free has helped my reactive hypoglycemia get under control so I can live my life!

Eating sugar free has changed my life, and my entire family’s life! I effortlessly lost 100 pounds and I don’t miss sugar one bit.

Eating sugar free has helped me feel better!!
Believe it or not, I always had an issue with sensitivity of my teeth. If I ate anything with sugar in it, I had to brush immediately after or I would have tooth pain. I had to give it up. It bothered me that much. Now that I have stopped eating and drinking sugar sweetened products, I no longer have an issue with my teeth.
Sugar free helps with my diabetes
Started eating sugar free and paleo because my son became disoriented when eating sugar and gluten. Didn’t expect doing so would almost end my migraines and cause less illness in the household.

I’m trying to self manage my blood sugar to avoid Metformin. I’ve adopted a grain free way of life and this would be the perfect compliment. Thank you!
My favorite part about being sugar-free is the fact that I can still eat sweet treats without my weight going CRAZY! Especially since I’ve started competing in Strongman, I want to stay in my weight class without the boring diets (not to mention I can work out all day long)!

my cravings have gone away and I feel more in control!
Cutting the sugar has helped me drop 40+ lbs so far. I still have a long way to go, but I WILL GET there!

It’s amazing how much better I feel when I cut the sugar and keep it out!
Need to start somewhere.

Love being sugar-free! Now to switch my family!
Eating less sugar means less mood swings when I’m not constantly dealing with the “crash”. So much happier without it!
Sugar does not agree with me….my acne has cleared since removing it from my diet. I also have more steady energy, sleep better, and better mood!
A host of health benefits came with leaving sugar behind. I am no longer diabetic.
Less joint pain here and I lost 20 pounds. Sleep like a baby.
I’m always looking for products I can incorporate into my diet. I’m tired of feeling deprived and yes, food and sugar is everywhere. My friends think I’ve gone off the deep end because I restrict my diet. Feel very much alone.
Everything just seems to work better when I am sugar free!

Asthma, allergies, skin issues GONE! Energy through the roof. And I just turned 50 last week! All my friends were trying to tell me to expect to feel tired, and not be able to lose weight, now that I’m 50. So I lost 3 lbs over the week of my birthday, mostly just to thumb my nose at them!
Eating sugar free has helped my immune system. Prior to going sugar free, I caught everything that went around and was more sick and sick longer than others who had the same virus. It got to the point that I was either recovering or acquiring something new. I would have just a few days between illnesses. Now I hardly ever get sick and when I do, I just feel a little under the weather and am better in about a day.
I used to be addicted to sugar and it seemed that no matter how much I ate, I just craved more. Going sugar free has helped immensely!
Sugar free has helped me with my diabetes

Sugar, the evil sugar. It gave me migraines and a terribly upset stomach. It’s not in the house. I’m careful how I eat, no sugar in the house and I feel so much better.
My moods are so much more stable!
Sugar gives me a headache, so I no longer eat it
sugar is like a drug addiction and it’s harder to control sinice sugar is everywhere and is legal 😛
Covering your freezer with blankets will extend the amount of time the food stays frozen. This should give you a couple extra days denedping on the number of blankets used. Be sre to take the blankets off as soon as the power returns,
I don’t feel as slugish since I have cut back on sugar.
NEED NEED NEED MUST HAVE! OMG I friggin ADORE Nature’s HOLLOW! Without them and their products my life would be bland and boring!
it’s helped me lose weight
While I’ve been struggling to keep on the low-carb bandwagon, cutting sugars has helped me lose about 30lbs and has helped obliterate the scaly, dark patches of skin that I had due to PCOS.
Eating sugar-free is helping me to lose weight and to feel more energetic throughout the entire day. It is also helping me to have clearer skin!
years ago i had lost quite a bit of weight counting carbs and eliminating sugar out of my diet. over they years i became lax and so i gained it all back. i recently tried the diet again but realized that counting carbs was not the answer for me. i stalled and could not get my weight loss started again. i decided i needed a lifestyle diet. one that i can live with long term. i have eliminated virtually all carbs and sugar, but i am not obsessing about how many carbs or sugar are in cream cheese or heavy cream, etc . i’ve embarked on a ketogenic diet coupled with intermittent fasting and it seems to agree with me. due to the amount of fat that i am consuming i don’t seem to have an issue with fasting since it keeps me so full. i’ve also learned that my fasting glucose levels were very high and intermittent fasting is a way to lower my levels. i’m glad i came back to your website. it’s chock full of the information that i need to keep me on course. thanks for the work you do. being a part of a community and getting daily affirmations is what i need to stay on track. i’m hoping that i will be where i want to be by my birthday next month celebrating 60 yrs, and come june i will be embarking on an epic adventure with two of my kids in iceland. i get anxious some days thinking about whether i’ve made a mistake committing to a trip which requires me to have a lot of strength and endurance, but frankly, lately i’m feeling like i can do it. i’m think i will be ready for the challenge.
The most obvious effect of a sugar-free diet so far has been weight loss. However, I’m also learning to pay attention to the way my body responds to eating certain foods. I’ve fallen off the wagon a few times, but usually spending a few days feeling sluggish and bloated helps me get back on track.
As an aside, I’m thrilled to learn about Nature’s Hollow. I’ve recently moved to a very small town, and so far I haven’t been able to find any sugar free barbecue sauce. I can sometimes find sugar free ketchup, but it’s hit or miss. I know condiments are really necessities, but it sure would be nice to have some! 🙂
I feel so much better when I don’t eat a bunch of sugar and am so thankful for sweet options that are healthy and don’t affect blood sugar!
Becoming sugar free made me realize the confusion it creates for the body! Any time I have anything with a higher amount of fructose, I become hungry within an hour or two. Switching to a keto diet made me realize the difference between true hunger and psychological cravings.
Sugar free eating has made my body work so much better – better digestion, better skin, better control of eating, and a healthier weight.
I avoid white sugar at all costs and have learned from Maria where to find the hidden sugars in foods!
I dont have FB but I am hoping I can still be entered just by commenting?
I have been on the lookout for a no sugar ketchup for a long time! Hoping to try this one out for our family 🙂
