Sugar free sweets may help you stick with your diet whether you are dieting before you go on holiday or for medical reasons.

On the internet there are lots of diets, from the sugar free diet through to the caveman diet, not to mention the diets that limit you to specific commercial products.  The NHS has produced a good guide to some of the popular diets.  The diets they recommend are those based on a gradual weight loss that can be sustained.   It’s easier to stick to an eating plan if it doesn’t mean cutting out any one type of food.  This is why I think that sugar free  sweets can help in a diet.  The craving for a favourite sweet treat can lead you astray.  Sugar free sweets which typically have only 75% of the calories of sweets made with sugar mean that you can have the occasional sweet without feeling you have failed to control your calorie intake. 

Losing weight is only half the battle. The real aim is to keep it off and this is only possible if your new eating plan is easy to stick to.  Often people find it boring to stick to a restricted range of food, the lack of treats and sweets means that it is very tempting to go back into old habits.  If you actually like the diet, you will be much less likely to put the weight back on so sugar free sweets can be a real boost to your morale.

The table below shows the typical calorie saving by having sugar free sweets.  I believe the sugar free sweets we sell taste every bit as good as the sugary equivalents.

Unfortunately Sugar free sweets are a little expensive than normal sweets so your wallet gets a bit of a diet.
