The cause of many of my physical problems...and it all starts to make sense!! During the summer, Ellie and I work long hours away from home..and we feel healthy, and 'naturally' tired. Winter comes along..and we spend more time at home..and drink probably 20-25 cups of tea a day..each with 2-3 teaspoons of sugar...and we start to get aches and pains,headaches,put on weight,etc etc. and feel MORE tired in the morning, than when we went to bed!! Anybody Googled 'sugar-danger'? If you have unexplained high systolic blood pressure, pains, aches etc, and take a lot of sugar..read it. You might start to feel a LOT better! It is going to be hard to give up..probably as hard as giving up cigarrettes..but will let you know if things improve. But read it anyway, it is fascinating!! Just think..cigarettes and sugar and fat could be the cause of 90% of health problems I just woke up to reality!! I guess many know it already )

One word for you.....

SPLENDA!

Yeah, I know it's a bit pricey but it's worth it. I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes two years ago this May and I was devastated. Then along came my new best friend Splenda and life was great again (needle sticking not included)

Seriously tho, laying off the sugar was the best thing that happened to me I think. Thanks to having a physical job and cutting most sugars from my diet, I dropped a considerable amount of fat and put on a few extra pounds of muscle in only a couple months. Being thin by nature it was easier to notice but it doesn't take long when you have to go cold turkey And yes, you really do feel alot better when you watch what you eat. It certainly proves the old saying to be true... You get out what you put in

At 20-25 cups of tea per day (assuming you are awake for about 17 hrs. a day ,that's about one cup every 1hr 10 min.) I don't think that sugar is your only contributing factor.

Hey Phil!! Yes, it was stupid!! Ellie would want a cup of tea, and make me one too, and vice versa....and really, if she hadn't made it, I wouldn't have wanted one..
I love sweet things, but must cut down on it. Did you know smoking creates a desire for sugar???

There's also caffien in that tea. My mom can directly associate her high blood pressure to caffien. She has a BP monitor, and uses it daily. Days where she consumes even the slightest amount of coffee her BP goes up.

My Father was a big tea drinker after moving to England. My Mum would throw up if she even looked at tea!

I have a lot of respect for the dangers posed by sugar. Since my friend Felix came home from hospital I have been looking after him, including his diabetes. It is a real pain to manage, figuring out the right amount of insulin versus too much.

I personally cut back on sugar some time ago after my Mum and one of my sisters were diagnosed with diabetes (my Dad also had it toward the end of his life - double whammy). We have also cut extra salt from the diet last summer when my blood pressure was around 145/90

BP is down to 125/80 now (average).

there are tea's you can get with no cafine and use splenda... there is not much of a difference. there is also another sugar substitute but i'll have to ask my diabetic father later. if your having trouble finding the no cafine tea let me know... we have a store here called "mother earth" they have a huge stock of it. they even have sweet teas that have no cafine.

To a certain extent, but even beans and corn carry more sugars and carbs than you'd think.

Look for the beans with high protein content, lima, peas, soup beans, legumes in general. Stay away from green beans and (God forbid I love them so) baked beans (especially on toast). Beans on toast has enough carbs to send you into diabetic tailspins.

Eat smart!

Go with the flow, but 20 cups of tea a day is just looking for diabetic shock.

You canít 40 teaspoons of sugar a day and expect not to have a sugar problem. I donít like my coffee without 2 sugars but even then I donít drink more than 3 or 4 at most coffees a day. Even here in the winter.

Even if you only cut your intake in half you will be better off.

Steve, it is like the social smoking/drinking problem..you end up taking a cigarette or drink you are offered, even if you wouldn't have normally wanted one if you were on your own!!(that's why Landlords of Pubs encourage buying a round of drinks...as often as possible ) I am now making a conscious effort to only drink tea when I REALLY want one, not because it is companionable (is that a word ??)
I am making a note of how many cups I drink every day, and controlling it...managed to get through only 6 cups today!!
