Comment by Ray Gollis:
Great advice from Shreeren. I think you should have alternatives to sugar. Like if you are fixing oatmeat in the morning, add some banana's and strawberries to your oatmeat. Most people put honey on their oatmeal. Honey is a good alternative to sugar which is processesed. By the poll results you see that most people have sugary foods in there diets and fruit doesn't seem to satisfy their sweet tooth. Read the next post and that will give you some idea on how to satisfy your sweet tooth.
