I have switched from using sugar to monk fruit or swerve. I haven't had regular sugar in 2 years, the only natural sugar I have is from fresh berries. 
Trying to add more fruits as a substitute for more sugary desserts. Have switched to having a mandarin after dinner at home to satisfy my desire to something sweet.

We ordered out last night and was very proud of my order. I got a grilled chicken salad and was able to enjoy it with using less than half of the salad dressing they provided. I was going to split a dessert, but they forgot to bring it so I did even better hah

Did pretty well over the weekend - did let myself enjoy a treat on Sunday. Ready to really focus on sugar this week and knock it out of the park!

Just joined this has been a struggle of mine since I was a child - I just love chocolate......I have quit soda and cut back on sugary dressing, coffee creamer, and such still have a glass of red wine maybe 1-2 nights a week but after dinner I still want my chocolate. Hope someone has a good suggestion or substitute

Amy VLynch‍ I've heard great things about unsweetened cocoa powder and adding it to things to get your chocolate fix!

Lately I've been finding that Seltzer Waters are really helping with my sweet tooth. A little sweet flavor - no sugar - and helps me hydrate!

rxckp2‍ Yes! Their Pear/Peach flavor is my favorite!! AHA and Polar are my other go-tos that have good flavors.

I quit drinking soda like a year ago and seltzer was my savior. I highly suggest LaCroix, they sell them at Target.  Soooooo good!
It is the sugar hidden in “healthy food” that has amazed me. Looking forward to the suggestions for healthier and less sugary options
Just calculated the flavoring I put in morning coffee and it's 5.4 teaspoons.  Ugh.  I need reminders like this. Plus I had a cookie and chocolate.  Sigh.  But agree the awareness is key to making future changes!
