In this week’s podcast, I’m talking about how hard it can be to avoid sugar if you don’t have the time (or energy) to cook everything from scratch.

Here are some of the books I’ve been reading lately:
The Sweet Poison Quit Plan – I’ve just finished reading this one; it’s filled with help and tips for quitting sugar, and lists of which products in the supermarket have most or least sugar.
Year of No Sugar: A Memoir by Eve O. Schaub – a book about how Schaub, her husband and their two daughters went for 12 months without sugar… and how hard it was.
Sweet Nothing by Nicole Mowbray – I left for a 2-hour train journey without my Kindle the other day, so treated myself to this from a book shop. It’s the first book I’ve come across about giving up sugar by a British person so I’m interested to see how she fares!
In this week’s podcast I mention Sugar: The Bitter Truth, a talk by Robert Lustig, MD… here it is:
And here are the products with added sugar that have surprised me this week:
- Pom Bear crisps: marketed to kids; sugar added for reasons I can’t discern.
- Walkers cheese &onion crisps: possibly other brands too but I didn’t check those. I was too heartbroken.
- Worcestershire sauce: other people seem less surprised by this one
- Bisto gravy granules: Ahhhh, I’m going to have to learn to make proper gravy.
Wow its shocking how much sugar is added to things and what's worse is how much more expensive healthy stuff like fruit and veg is when you're trying to avoid the bad stuff!
