    Mark gives xylitol the "ok" brand.

    Better than the most of the others at least.

      Just a quick warning on xylitol. It is toxic to dogs and it doesn't take much to be lethal, depending on the size of the dog.

        Yeah, Mark has a mention of this in his article on sugar alcohols. I'm not really sure why you'd be giving it to a dog on the first place... But yeah, don't.

            I don't know if you've ever had a dog, but it's not necessarily about giving it to them willingly, so much as making sure they don't get into it when you're not looking.

              Yeah, had a dog when we were growing up, so this is not news to me. But I'd think there are plenty of ways to safely ensure this from ever happening.

              A little common sense when working with foods you want to keep away from pets goes a long way.

                I agree with this. I'm much more sensitive to wheat than sugar. I do make sure to limit intake if I'm in a period of inactivity though (weeks, not daily/hourly).

                    Satisfied smile that most of this list is no longer a problem. All soft drinks taste really bad. Like Texas-Grok, I find the zero-cal stuff revolting. We never have cereal, but occasionally my grandkids talk my son into some sweetened cereal, it is just awful.

                    Still have trouble with my "won't power" and revert to the "see food" diet on this items
                    1. Chips: Just can't leave the blue corn chips alone. The bag can sit there unopened for weeks and I'm OK. Then someone opens the bag, andits all over.
                    2. Ice Cream: The wife occasionally needs a "fix." Once opened--its gone.
                    The Buck stops here. I am responsible for my past and my future. So for today: I choose to be happy. I will seek wisdom. I will be a servant to others. I will greet this day with a forgiving spirit.

                      Dried up cereal is often a lot more satiating when you dump hefty cream around that. I haven't performed that will throughout a number of generations.

                        Indeed it was a good list, 11 of 13 were sugar foods.

                        In order to make things easier for people they should change the list as follows:

                        #1 sugar, done.

                          nah, the one diet wrecker is : excess refined sugar mixed with excess refined fats combined with a serious lack of high quality proteins.

                            I agree with FrenchFry, sugar on it's own is hard to overeat, combined with fat is another thing altogether.

                              Coke is all sugar with 0g of fat, so that statement is wrong. Sugar on its own is easy to overeat, people all over the world are doing it at this very moment.
