    Had a really crappy day yesterday and decided to raid the box of stuff I got from Avidlite before moving back to Exante. I ate about 10 chocolate eclairs and spent virtually the entire night on the toilet. Who needs dulcolax!

    Joanne they're truly awful things. I have a serious problem with them though - can't stop eating them despite the side-effects. Yes I am that stupid. :eek:

    i've not tried them.
    its not sweet things i miss, but chocolate so if i 'need' some i either have some 85% or mix some cocoa with 2 spoons of dble cream and a tsp splenda, does the trick!

    but then i was never fussed for sweets, and preferred dark chocolate anyway.

    Definitely Jim. Sometimes you really can see the advantages of eating unprocessed stuff. Wont stop me mind you, lol.

    Taz I was never actually much of a sweet eater at all until I started dieting for some reason. I think knowing I cant have them makes me want them.

    WW I have another 2 packs of them which Ill have to 'force' down at some point. Ill be making sure to limit them to one a day though!

    Shelby low carb sweets are sugar free sweets. They are sweetened with other artificial sweetners which can have a laxative effect.

    I bought a small pack of Thorntons Vanilla toffee last week. I had four really small pieces, and 3 hours later had terrible cramping and had to run to the loo. I knew that the side effects could be unpleasant, that's why I just had a little bit, but I have to say that it worked pretty well in getting me "unstuck".

    I enjoyed the wee treat though, but it's certainly not for every day. A tiny bit, every once and a while. And not before I have a party to go to!

    I've been eating Boot's diabetic sweets this week - mostly the butterscotch hard sweets. Really nice and haven't had any bad effects. I think the main ingredient is sucralose so should be Atkins-friendly!

    Not sure if they're stalling me a little though. But my diet's been all over the place this week so hard to tell really.
