Sugar Free Candy



Recommended Posts

I mean this in the very sweetest way possible...throw that stuff out! Like seriously, donate it to someone, or throw it the eff away! If you truly can't control your portion. If you can control your portion and it doesn't send you praying the porcelain god, or make others dive for their gas masks, and you use them once in a blue moon as a treat, I have to believe they are a better alternative than the real stuff.

As someone else explained, and I truly believe this, IMHO the dose makes the poison. 1 piece which is usually 1/4 to 1/3 of a serving is pretty low-ish on the crap-o-meter--but 1/3 or 1/2 of a bag, not so much. Right?

I've never really understood sugar free candy for people that aren't diabetic. It pretty much has the same empty calories (or just slightly less) as sugared candy plus it has those cough*** unfortunate ***cough side effects.

Yep. That will do it. Gum is a great option

Careful with gum! It can cause extra painful gas (increased air from chewing) in our small pouches!

Please follow the serving size on sugar free hard candies. One ingredient causes explosive diarrhea if you choose to eat more than the recommended serving.

This!! When I was pre-op I splurged and had sugar free reese's cups! It was awful. I ate way too many and ended up so sick.

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.
