Have you guys ever tried no sugar or no carb diet?

something similar yeah - High protein, high (good) fat, lots of gym. currently losing a steady 2Kg a week. its hard man. I phased it out in stages. I started with no desserts, then no sugar in tea, then no fizzy drinks. at the moment I can have a cheat day each week and am on zero calorie/ sugar free fizzy drinks (team coke zero). 

the cravings are something awful. each time I crave sweet, I drink water or tea. 

the thing that keeps me going is that you do not go mental. if you start obsessing over how much sugar everything has, you will probably go crazy. avoid the major sweet stuff but dont worry too much about the confusing things, like porridge or baked beans or things like that.

take some good fats - the lethargy you are feeling is that you cant get energy from protein and low carb. fats are burnt readily as fuel so are a great source of energy. handful of walnuts? omega capsules? some boiled egg? whatever you fancy

Low sugar symptoms. It's terrible. Sugar is the major source of energy. Because we don't consume enough energy so we become fat. So you are not taking energy altogether. Either bear it. Or take a bit of that but work out like 30 min a day.

Avoiding artificial sugar isn't hard for me, I don't like tea, coffee and I am not that big on deserts. The problem for me is avoiding white rice and white bread, I love naan and unfortunately these basically turn into sugar so are not very good for you.

indeed. plus it gives you "ramadhan breath". 

people have been indoctrinated that all fats are bad and if you have even 1mg of fat, you WILL get cancer AIDS and die. 

in truth, (good) fats release energy faster than carbs. high protein, high (good) fat diet means you lose weight fast because your body is in a ketosis state, while feeling comfortable/ normal because you are getting your required amount of energy to function.

I didn't have space for sugar when was bulking I consumed 2900-3100kcal I only had carbs,fats and protein in my mind but somtimes I had to go IIFYM. One cookie is ok now and then tho but I'm still fighting to not eat sugar.

I do need to change my eating habits. I have been eating a lot of junk food lately. And I think i am tired because of low calorie diet.

bro just try sticking to the diet you have currently, but taking your energy from good fats. see if it makes a difference to you. eg if you are feeling tired, eat a palmful of brazil nuts, or take some omega supplements first thing in the morning, or try and eat some oily fish

I will take Omega supplements. 

It's unecessary, Instead eat fish, It's rich in fat. Unless it is hard for you to get enough fats through your diet or you don't simply have time to cook.

Im hopelessly addicted to Pepsi and/or Mt. Dew. I once went 2 days without a can and it was one of the most miserable experiences of my life. Headaches, grouchy mood, etc..

I remember reading that a high sugar addiction is similar to a Cocaine addiction in that it triggers the same parts of the brain (Pleasure centers?) so people go into "withdrawal" when they don't get the fix.

I'm quite convinced that its the Soda lobby in the US that's preventing the FDA from declaring truly how harmful sugar Sodas are for the body. 

I'm prob gonna die of diabetes but hey at least I'll go with a smile. (As I crack open another can of Pepsi while typing this :D)
