      @drekberg Arsenic is natural too, but most of us would know that Arsenic is Poison . . . I guess we ought to think of Refined Sugar as Poison, too. My husband pointed at me when you said Withdrawls, LOL . . . Yes, my name is Tammy, and I am a Sugar Addict, and I have replaced a lot of my sugar with Erythritol products like Swerve Confectioner for baking and Swerve Brown for sweetening my hot tea. Lily’s is my go-to for sugar-free Milk Chocolate morsels. But I am not sure if this is the best plan, because it still gives me the sweet pleasure . . . Then when I am around Mom, she has ice cream in sugar cones called drumsticks, and I eat 4-5 within 3 days . . . So I know I am on a sugar roller coaster, so like you said, the addiction mimics heroine addiction, and I keep riding the roller coaster. But since I quit using most white sugar in 2020, and I don’t eat honey, agave, syrup, molasses, brown sugar, no fruit except strawberries, cut out bread, rarely eat potatoes, and only use bacon grease/lard or olive oil for cooking (no seed oil), I was able to stop using Naproxen anti-inflammatory and my A1C went from 6.0 to 5.3 in 2021. My doctor put me on a prescription of Naproxen for Plantar Fasciitis in 2017 after another car hit my car, and I thought the foot pain would never leave. But after I stopped eating sugar, starch and seed oils in 2021, I have no joint pain since stopping the seed oils and Wheat, and no Pre-Diabetes anymore since late 2020 after cutting out sugar in June 2020 when I turned 50 years old, and that was my milestone that I have to get serious for my health. Now I feel better than I have for years, and if I eat high carb for a few days, I feel the difference within 24-48 hours, pain comes back in my joints and I get a little sick to my stomach. Going around my family who DOES NOT eat Low Carb like my husband and I do is the hardest part. We can go out to restaurants and eat better than I do at my Mom’s or Brother’s family’s house, so now sometimes, we pack a meal or two and eat differently than what they are eating at the same table . . . It makes a BIG difference, and seeing my family is still the BIGGEST CHALLENGE in what I see as a Life Change, NOT a 6-month diet until I hit my target weight. I have to do Low Carb until the day I die, but that’s not bad, because I get a lot of bacon, cheeseburgers, snacks of cheese, steak, etc, so I am not going back to High Carb, because I like not having joint pain. And this journey all started with my husband saying, my Mom used to be a nurse and she asked me to look into whether I have Insulin Resistance, and this Dr. Sten Ekberg talks about that . . . So my first Low Carb YouTube video was “3x More Deadly than CANCER and Most People Don’t Know They Have It.” And we did your Online Course too!! You have saved our lives and we are spreading the word. Thank you from the bottom of my now healthy heart!!

      “Fast Like a Girl” (which isn’t just for women because men can follow the post-menopausal/no-cycle advice) has a 30-day Brain Health fasting schedule. It’s hard core, though, with prolonged fasting involved so the person would have to be willing to build up to it and then be committed to a fasting lifestyle. If I had any signs of dementia I’d be on board, but I guess I can’t assume everyone would be.

    • @olivia8979 on November 24, 2023 at 8:55 pm

      When I started Keto in March 2020 the pandemic was a benefit to me in some ways. I wasn’t going to holiday get togethers. There was no candy floating around the office. I could just make and eat my own food.
      Now 3/12 years later Thanksgiving is a breeze. I truly have no interest in eating the pies and sugary treats. I have no interest in eating all the carby side dishes. I think many of us truly do get used to it and do get to feeling completely fulfilled with the low carb lifestyle.

      So I hope you don’t give up on the idea. You may have decided to eat sugar at Thanksgiving. You may decide to do it again at Christmas. But you don’t have to do it every day in between. You don’t have to wait til New Years day, Just do your best every day during the holidays. There is a very good chance if you stick with it you will stop making those decisions to eat sugar. You will feel and look so much better. Your cravings will be in the past. Next year it won’t be difficult at all.

      BUT,nif you go low carb and then start eating all the low carb desserts and snacks you are not going to be able to get to that place where the cravings are in the past. It will be much easier and faster to get there if you don’t go for the keto treats. Just eat real food simply prepared.

I really thought swapping all my coffees with milk and sugar for green tea with stevia would leave me lethargic and struggling through each day. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I feel great. The most surprising difference to me was was going from daily use of painkillers for arthritic type aches and pains to almost never needing pain relief because all the inflammation has gone. Thank you so much. I encourage everyone to try this.

    I stopped eating sugar and radically reduced carbohydrate intake to minimum 8 weeks ago. It was very hard at first, but after about 2 to 3 weeks all my cravings went and my desire for sugar and carbohydrate was minimal. I was then able to try the intermittent fasting and it was so amazingly easy. I just didn’t feel hungry at all. I lost 25 pounds in this time, which was a really pleasant surprise for me as I have struggled to loose weight. My skin got better and my pain was reduced. But the last two days I regret eating just a little bit of dried fruit and all those old cravings have come back. Sugar is really so addictive. So I have to go cold turkey all over again!

    Thank you Dr. Sten. I cut out all sugars (including fruit and complex carbs) last April, and am here to say a big YES to the 30 days. I had already given up grains, and never ate a lot of ‘sweets’. The cravings only last a few days, but after a few weeks, I started to see sugar as poison, and actually don’t want any of the things that are unhealthy. No cravings, except !! when I smell bread toasting. It’s just “one of those things”, and no big deal. After 1 1/2 years, I feel better at age 65 than I did at 40. My post-CVD syndrome is much much better, and the bonus is that I’ve lost weight and now slim and trim. I also started rowing every day, thrice a day, and lifting weights. As a woman, following mainstream medical advice, I was grazing, 5 meals per day, low fat. I figured my gender and age meant I would never be more fit after menopause. Not true!

There are so many great foods you can eat that are simple to make and your taste buds really do change. I am now “ fat adapted”, so I can eat some carbs if I’m out for dinner at someone’s house or at a restaurant without it affecting me. I mostly use intermittent fasting now to reap benefits and stick to a lower carb diet. In my experience, everything Dr. Ekberg has said, is true, has been life changing for me and best of all, I’ve been able to make it a life style not just a “diet”. Be careful of all the “naysayers”! Some of my closest friends and family tried to sabotage my journey, but they all see how much healthier I am now. Good luck on your journey!👏🏻🙏🏼

      I’ve switched to carbonated water as my drink of choice. I now find I can’t even contemplate drinking even a diet fizzy drink.

      I went on carnivore and lost 45lbs, measure yourself, sometimes you lose inches instead of lbs. I snack on bacon when I get cravings or eat a whole meal, and feel stuffed. I use a small amount atkins shakes(for creamer, torani sugar free syrupmonk fruit sugar) to add to coffee. I just started possibly my last 30 day challenge to get near my goal weight, good luck to you

      It’s worth persisting as I now get told my eyes are sparkling and I’m only been off sugar for 3 months. You will need to read labels as there is hidden sugar in places you’d never expect so you may end up cooking from scratch more. You can still have some alcohol but there are restrictions.

      It can be hard at first for sure. But after you get into the routine, it becomes easier to go without sugar. I’ve been sugar free for about 2 years now and I’m at the point where don’t miss it at all. I walk past the chocolate display in the supermarket, and I feel nothing. People ask me if I miss sugar, and I tell them that I ate a lifetimes worth of chocolate up until I was in my 40’s. I’ve been there, and done it. I don’t need to keep doing it anymore and I don’t miss it.
      Stick with it my friend. Your body will thank you for it.

    I am (was) a heavy sugar junky with lots of health problems, went cold turkey full carnivore and 8/16 fasting 6 weeks ago. The first two weeks were absolutely horrible, lots of withdrawal and keto flu symptoms. Still going strong today, I feel a whole lot better in general. However, I still get cravings every now and then.

      Get some good quality salt. Craving comes up pop some salt and drink a big cup of water with it.

    • @LarryLaffer2 on December 2, 2023 at 3:15 pm

      @@dwbpqfpg5929 Gonna give that a try. I’ve got some Himalayan and good quality Sea salt. Also a bunch of electrolytes. Thanks for the advice!

    I have to agree. The best part of the 30 day trial for me as a radiologist was my improved vision. (In addition to weight loss and focus) . Never really thought much about sugar until your lectures. Love your talks and they are changing my lifestyle. Many thanks!!!

    I am 74. I stopped all table sugar (including foods with sugar) and alcohol six months ago but otherwise ate what I wanted – continued with starch. I walk 45 to 60 minutes every day.
    During this time I have felt all the benefits you describe and steadily lost weight (fat, not muscle) at a rate of a pound a week – i.e. 30 lbs to date (14 kg) – belt-size 3″ less. I do not see this as a “diet” – it is healthy living and I plan to continue this till I die at 105.
