    I just joined. I am wanting to eat less sugar. This calls for granulated sugar and brown sugar. I am trying to eat around 1,200 calories, a day. Can I eat sugar and still lose weight? Or substitute the sugar for Stevia?

    Welcome to the membership!!! Yes you can eat sugar still and lose weight. You should aim to stay below about 50 grams of sugar per day. I would love to chat more with you about your goals. I’m going to send you a private message to your email tomorrow.
