At The Sugar Breakup, we live a sugar free life
We’re Julia and Fiona, two sisters who broke up with sugar over 2 year ago and are never looking back. The positive changes to our health have been dramatic.
Even though we quit sugar we still love cooking, eating and feeding our families. We especially love baking! This has inspired us to help others quit sugar yet still enjoy food with family and friends.
Sugar free means fructose free
We have broken free of fructose! Most of today’s sugars are made up of a combination of fructose and glucose. Sugar free for us means removing as much fructose from your life as possible.
Fructose wrecks your appetite control, converts directly to fat and is addictive. It tricks your body into craving sugar all day, everyday. In fact it’s so good at being addictive many food companies can’t help themselves and load sugar into their foods and drinks. Learn more about fructose here.

Here at The Sugar Breakup we still eat fruit
What is really important with fruit is the fibre. Having fibre with fructose reduces the damage it can cause. Luckily Mother Nature provides fructose and fibre together with the skin and flesh of the fruit.
Enjoy 1 to 2 whole pieces of fruit daily with the skin on. Fruits that have a good balance of fibre to fructose are berries, pears and kiwi fruit (but you don’t have to eat the furry skin!).
But STAY AWAY from fruit juice and dried fruit. Almost all the fruits fibre is lost in the juicing process, so when you drink a juice you are getting a large hit of sugar with no natural fibre. With dried fruit you get a concentrated hit of sugar and tend to eat more than you would if the fruit was in its natural state.
Sugar free means saying goodbye …
… to table sugar, brown sugar, coconut sugar, honey, maple syrup, agave syrup and golden syrup as they are all packed with fructose.
