Before I drank about 2 liters of cola a day... I ate candy like a -I don't know what-... I quit just from one day to the other -cold turkey-.
I love fruit, I use it a lot in my cooking. I use Stevia a lot also. I crave the sweet taste... not sugar...
In the first days, you might start to shake, feel aroused, little;e headache. Just like a hang over from alcohol. Alcohol and sugar are quite
It will pass..

My MD told me: when carbs comes into your body, your body makes insulin to break it down and make it into sugar. the time the insulin is gone, so is
the food. - result: no (big) fluctuating blood sugar level.
When pure sugar comes into your body, the insulin breaks it down in no time and all the energy will be 'usable' directly. The insulin will still be
released by your body, and is still there, so it will go for your blood sugar - effect is that your blood sugar drops, so you crave more sugar...
If you eat an apple: some of the energy is 'easy to get', the rest is fibres and carbs, so insulin still has work on the food and will not go for your
blood sugar: no cravings and quick energy.
He also said, that if you do drink i.e. a cola, eat rice or pasta with it, it will 'compensate' to the insulin in your body.
normally, non-processed foods are balanced so you do not get the blood sugar swings and you do not get the cravings.
(sweeteners like aspartame: your body thinks it is sugar, but the insulin can't do anything with it, so the big amount of energy is used, and the
insulin goes for you bloodsugar. After drinking a diet coke, you get hungry!)
