“Lactic acid” vs “Lactose” on the list of 56 sugar names - also something to avoid?
12h
  • annefood No, you don’t need to avoid lactic acid in the Avoid Added Sugar Challenge. It’s used in fermentation (yogurt, pickled veggies, sourdough...) and as a preservative or flavoring agent.
  • annefood And lactose is an intrinsic sugar (not an added sugar) that is naturally occurring in dairy. So no need to worry about that either.
  • ingalls Thanks! I kept looking it up. ;-)

Staying away from added sugar is a piece of cake now... a sugar-free cake of course. 😂

Had half of a seven layer chocolate cake in my fridge, and ice cream put there by a “well meaning” family member... DID.NOT.TOUCH.IT! (But it was damn hard!!🤣)
I blended up a frozen banana with a little skim milk and it was delicious. Perfect treat in this hot weather.

Salt craving
3d
I’ve been craving salt lately. Is this related to not having added sugar? Is anyone else craving salt?? 🤷🏻‍♀️
  • annefood I do not believe that there is a nutritional correlation, but it could be that you’re reaching for salty snacks since sweet ones are off the menu. Or perhaps the heat?
  • shmoozii I think you’re right. It’s a little weird is all.
  • garv Not weird at all . Salt does provide satiation.
Agave nectar
4d
Is that allowed?
  • annefood Nope! Agave nectar is an added sugar (as are maple syrup, coconut nectar, honey, etc.).
  • ElanaG I didn’t think so, so I used half a pass since I ate a couple spoonfuls of Greek yogurt with it (siggi).
    Hard to find stuff while away on business!
  • annefood Good call. Yes it is indeed!

No more passes for me
4d
Well I am only halfway thru level III and I am pretty sure that I have used up all of my passes for the next level....and I haven’t even gotten pass the father’s day party. Oh boy, I’m toast.
How do the streaks work?? I don’t really understand. Mine is always zero :(
4d
  • annefood A streak is when you don’t use any full or half passes, and thus successfully avoid added sugar. No passes used for 3 days and you have a 3 day streak, for example. It resets when you use one- I...
  • shmoozii I was wondering about that too.
