Cold turkey or gradual? What's the best way to start?

I think whatever feels right to you. Years ago, I committed to a healing diet for my psoriasis and eliminating sugar completely really helped give my body the break it needed. Now, I'm happy with reading labels, using stevia regularly, and eating fermented veggies often. That way, if I have something with sugar in it I feel more balanced.

Would you provide more information on fermented vegetables? All I can think of is Kim Chee, and there must be others. Thanks!

This website is a wealth of knowledge on fermented veggies: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/learn/natural-fermentation/how-to-ferment-vegetables/. They offer a free ebook with tons of tips also. The Body Ecology Diet really goes into detail on this subject, it's a great book for understanding sugar cravings and their relation to candida. Also type 'fermented veggies' into YouTube and you'll find lots of easy tutorials like this one: https://youtu.be/rib0E-tUfvY. I hope this is helpful! ~e
