January 2019 I cut refined sugars out of my life. The only types of sugars that I use now come from whole food sources such as whole fruits ie. bananas, apples, and mainly dates. When looking for grocery items to buy I always check the ingredients listed. If any forms of refined sugars or artificial sweeteners are listed I do not buy them. My only exception is the chocolate chips that I use are sweetened with stevia and erythritol, but I do limit my use of them and also combine with 100 % pure chocolate.
I tried that once, I didn’t last long. Kudos to you for sticking to it.
