I'm still avoiding sugar with good results. I lost 25 lbs and am hovering in a 3 lb range that I'm happy with. I haven't eaten any of the children's halloween candy. I may be able to avoid the usual over indulgence during the holidays. It's great that I don't have a taste memory. I know I love to eat certain things, but I can't taste them in my mind. And often it is very nice to just smell them.
I've notice that I'm OK eating things that aren't sweetened, and that I don't eat as much of them as I would if there was sugar because they are frankly not so tasty and that's kinda the point. I'm eating because I'm hungry, or like to chew. The motivation to just keep putting tasty things in my mouth is lowered.
