    Hi

    Apart from ordering them online, does anyone know where I can get sugar free sweets from?

    Holland & Barratt do a range called Sula, the Caramel Cream ones are gawj.

    Marks & Sparks do their own range in various flavours.

    Be careful with them they can give you terrible windypops.

    Thanks! I have to go into town in the morning to be beaten up by my Osteopath so I'll have a look then.

    Lady M - thanks for the wind warning!

    Thornton's do a diabetic range. Delicious is not the word but again watch out for the windypops!

    I adore the Turkish Delight bar, 69p. And the Fudge Bar also 69p. They even do diabetic toffee mmmm. Best saved, like all such products, for treat times only!

    Jim - I just knew I'd get that response from you! But being a girl and with TOTM looming I want something sweet in the house so I don't go silly.

    I understand that Nic. :)

    Caz, I count all SF / LC Foods as Frankenfoods. A good deal of the original Atkins was about training yourself not to want to eat sweet things. Sadly that wasn't true of later publications.

    I used to have the diabetic chocolate or an Atkins bar if I REALLY needed a treat. I've not been into a Boots for that reason, as I know I'll buy some! :D

    ETA - it never affected my loss, I just don't want to rely on it this time around...

    Hi

    I have sula sweets and noticed on the back the carb count for strawberry and cream is 2.8g with no fibre.

    I am new to this so not sure if i should only count the carb count on sugars?

    Thanks

    Steve

    Hi Steve, no that's 2.8 carbs I'm afraid, way too high for induction really.

    Doesn't it depend if those 2.8 are made up of Sugar or Polypols?
