    Avoiding processed foods as much as possible (which can be very difficult) and reading the labels are invaluable. Just reading the labels helps a lot.

    My downfall is that I have a very sweet tooth - in fact, all my teeth are sweet teeth :eek: - so I will get cravings. I crave the worst possible sugar - candy - gum drops, jelly beans, jujubes - anything with absolutely no nutritional value whatsoever.

    Swapping sugar for sweeteners in tea and some baking can help lower sugar intake plus diet fizzy drinks. I agree go for full fat yogurt etc they have much less sugar than low fat versions. Natural sugar in fruit is not considered to be such a worry, it is all the unnatural added sugars that we should all be keeping an eye on. I have seen an enormous change in mum's tastebuds now with dementia ... we used to eat grapefruit, gooseberries, rhubarb and now strawberries have to be covered in sugar, apples are too sour etc. A nice cereal is porridge with a mashed banana stirred in, tastes very sweet but nothing artificial added. Sugar free jelly with some fruit is an idea for dessert.

    Hi sorry can't offer any advice but can tell you that my dad is the same for sugar and anything sweet even when I attend to him during the night he is eating a toffee I have often wondered if there is a connection with the illness
    Best wishes xx
