By this I mean cakes, sweets, chocolate, puddings and the white stuff added to coffee etc. What about sugar in things like flavoured yoghurt? Where do you stand on hidden sugar in savoury foods like sugar in cooking sauces like ...

Do any of you remember posting this?

Somewhere in the depths of my foggy brain I recall a discussion on here where somebody was concerned that they would not lose weight with the size of their plates even though they were complying with the rules.

Not for everyone, I appreciate but it started by me thinking that I would never lose weight sitting in a chair playing on the iPad all day! Now that is honesty - howbeit not rocket science...
