    Maybe you'd find it easier to cut out one thing at a time, e.g. wheat first, then all grains, then added sugar, then all sugar (if necessary). Or maybe you just need more carbs because you're active,...

    I can't think of anything wrong with walking a lot 2-3 times a week. Unless you have an injury or some kind of medical condition.

    I don't think liquid stevia has inulin so you could try that instead. I think it's just the powdered/granulated stevia that has it because I get the little tablets that you put in coffee and they...

    I don't understand the point in supplementing with sugar like adding refined sugar to your food. If sugar somehow improves your health, why not just eat more fruit?
