kind words, thank you SO much
we are so touched when you do...
'My name is Annemarie, I'm 36 years old and work as a PA. I first saw your products on Instagram as a lot of fellow Slimming World members put up new products, especially ones to help develop a recipe where other foods cannot be used. I used your Choc Shot for all my choc needs as Slimming World members cannot eat regular chocolate without it being extremely high in Syns. Your Choc Shot gives me and others the Choc Shot they need! It’s great for puddings and adding to recipes! My Slimming World journey started when I was 33, I woke up one day and knew enough was enough! I was then unemployed and never left the house. If I did, it was once a week to go grocery shopping. I would be in excruciating pain and be hanging onto the trolley for support. I had no social life and no life at all. My life would be centred around my food addiction and pain. My knees, my back, and my whole body would ache. I would cry being in so much pain. When I did try to walk, or climb the stairs, I would be heckled in the street called fat and other horrible things. I took the plunge with Slimming World, walked into the class, found out my true weight, and never looked back. It was a struggle at first. I wouldn't go out for meals as I couldn't cope with the temptation of ‘bad foods’. I also emptied all the cupboards at home, so there was no temptation. It is very hard not only to change your eating habits, but to change your whole mind-set. This is when I went on the search for support and was introduced to Instagram. I am very lucky with my followers, and have over 16k at mimi_myslimmingworldjourney. It’s crazy to think how many people want to follow me, so here I am, nearly 13 stone lighter and still going. My goal is another 3 stone and I know I will be able to reach this goal. I still have my willpower and great support, and now a new partner who, may I add, has lost 5 stone by following Slimming World at home. My life has changed so much since my first day at Slimming World! I am 13 stone lighter, have a job, a social life, a new partner and have relocated to London. My future is looking fantastic!'

So thank you and I look forward to seeing what results you bring to us.'
'Hi there, I just wanted to write and tell you how amazing your Choc Shot is.

'Being intolerant to dairy I love your product. I think you are missing a huge market though by not promoting the fact that your product is dairy free on the front of the product, as it was only by chance that I turned it around to see that it is dairy free. Although only my opinion, I am sure you could sell even more of this fantastic product if advertised to show the range of customers that could use it. Thank you for producing great hot chocolate.'

'I wonder if you could advise me where I can get the Sweet Freedom syrup. I was diagnosed with diabetes and due to this condition am unable to have sugar anymore in my cup of tea. I tried every sweetener on the market which always left an after taste.

'I just wanted to say a massive thank you for making a sweet product which isn't bad for you! My son loves hot chocolate, but I'm conscious that most brands are filled with sugar and goodness knows what else, so it's not something I particularly relish giving him before bed. Then I stumbled across your Choc Shot and was amazed at how healthy it is, yet it tastes lovely! He has it with warm almond milk, for a lovely, creamy and healthy hot chocolate, and he loves it. I'm not even a

As a Type 2 diabetic with a dangerous weakness for all things chocolate, I had resigned myself to a life of misery. I can ignore sweets, biscuits and cakes but chocolate has been a real struggle....until now. I am a volunteer driver and much of my work involves taking people shopping. I was idly browsing the shelves in one of my local (Harrogate) supermarkets and there it was, a jar of Choc Shot Hot Choc, beaming down at me. Nothing has ever jumped into my trolley with such speed so now I'm looking forward to experimenting with all your gorgeous-looking products. I may well become your Ambassador in Harrogate!'

I'm delighted to say that I have hit my goal weight of 110lb as of yesterday and I could not have done it without my guilt-free Sweet Freedom treat in the evening.

I've never written to a company before to tell them how much I love their product, but I just thought that you needed to hear this good feedback! Recently I turned Vegan and I was finding it hard to satisfy my chocolate sweet tooth cravings. Not only this but I wanted a product which was made from natural ingredients and was also low in calories! When I came across ChocShot I was literally so happy I loved it, it was everything I was looking for rolled into one, I have been raving about it to anyone that will listen! My favourite combination so far has to be golden syrup porridge with frozen raspberries topped with some ChocShot! I hope you have plans to expand as I am moving to Australia in a couple of months and I will NEED it with me! Thanks for making such an awesome product, keep expanding and bringing out more variations PLEASE! From a very happy customer.'

At the moment there's a big trend for having syrups in your coffee but the majority I've seen are all full of sugar so they're no good for me. I'll definitely be buying your other products.' Caroline P

'Hello - I would just like to say this Choc Shot is amazing! I am a Slimming World consultant and have a group of 70 members and it is very rare we find a fantastic tasting chocolate that we can actually eat without feeling guilty! I just hope our local stores start selling it as we have to travel to the big supermarkets for it at the moment, well done Sweet Freedom we love this product, it is so versatile we can sneak it in everywhere :)' Lyndsey
'I managed to get down to Sainsbury's and I got some Choc Shot - yeah I have just had the world's best hot chocolate. I must have been looking in the wrong place at Buckshaw but panic over I found it and I bought two.' Lisa

'I am a Slimming World consultant in North Somerset. Whoopee! My members have already discovered Choc Shot as I included a bottle in our weekly raffle a few weeks ago. The lucky winner has been taunting the other members on Facebook with pictures of how she's been using it! Choc Shot is perfect for those of us who want to lose weight, yet
'I'm spreading the word! I met a lady in the supermarket queue this morning and we started chatting. She mentioned she was diabetic and I just happened to have bought some Sweet Freedom so I showed it to her. She left her shopping on the belt and ran off down the sugar aisle to buy some as she had never heard of it and was delighted when she came back as she said she really missed something sweet on her porridge. I also have recommended it to my friend's sister who has recently become diabetic and she is very happy with it, and the Choc Shot. Glad to be spreading the news.' Hilary G

'Hello, I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for creating such an amazing product! Both myself and my fiancé are members at Slimming World and have lost just over two stone and owe some of it to your product. When we get sweet cravings, instead of heading for a chocolate bar we use your product in a healthy dessert/treat and it really helps us to stay on track. Keep up the good work!' Jonathan and Stephanie
'I suffer from an unfortunate gluten allergy and was very happy to come across your 'Choc Shot' product, good job on that one, enjoying it as I send this message on some ice cream. My question was for my girlfriend, who was wondering if the product is dairy free?' Aidan *Yes it is dairy free!
'Good morning. I'm delighted to say that I at last managed to find your amazing Choc Shot product and 'Oh my goodness' it really is gorgeous, especially when warmed in the microwave. So versatile and tasty I've been shouting from the rooftops about it to all my friends as we're all watching our weight. Can you please advise me where we could try to find the other products in your range and also we are part of a small food club and wondered if you have any leaflets, information etc we could have to share round. Many thanks.' Gillian M

'My mother is on the 'Slimming World' diet, where I believe they endorse your 'Choc Shot' product as a low calorie chocolate alternative in some of their recipes. I noticed the 'gluten free' label on the back and tried the product myself, very impressed. My girlfriend is lactose intolerant (we're a bunch of funny eaters, huh?) and I'm sure she'll be happy to try your product when I see her this weekend as it's the best tasting chocolate substitute I've come across so far. Might want to stick a 'dairy free' label on the back, I see the product doing VERY well in that market.' Aidan
'I just wanted to send a message of thanks to your company. The Choc Shot has helped me
'I have been recommending Sweet Freedom to my clients for over a year now and been amazed at the results it has achieved. The majority of my clients come to see me for weight loss and often have diabetes and high cholesterol when they first arrive. It's amazing that within a short time of using Sweet Freedom in their diets, coupled with my advice, Hypnotherapy and EFT, how they are much slimmer, healthier and many are already coming off their medication. My IBS clients also love Sweet Freedom and I provide them with some great recipes and food combinations using it to make fabulous, healthy, wheat free chocolate cupcakes. A great, natural product that everyone should be using!' Dr Elizabeth White www.lizwhite-nlp.co.uk
'I spoke to you via Twitter about using and mentioning Choc Shot in my Slimming World Groups. You won't believe how excited they get when I mention Choc Shot and many don't know what they are looking for in the shops, so this is a great way to promote you and help me. Thank you so so so much .... for inventing Choc Shot!!! I eat it constantly!' Hayley

'Hello! I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely love your products. I found them while at Whole Foods on a trip to London (I live in Norway) and they have literally changed my life. I have severe reactions to sugar, and seeing that everything is made with artificial everything it really limits what you can enjoy. Now that I have your syrups and found that I have absolutely no reaction to them whatsoever I use them in and on everything. Have you ever seen a grown woman cry because she was able to put syrup on her pancakes? It's the little things :) So I want to thank you, not only for making life much more enjoyable for me, but making it healthier for my daughter as well. If I could change anything, it would be that it was easier for me to get. It is very expensive to buy from Norway, and its even more expensive to fly to London unfortunately. Do you plan on going international at any point? You have one lifelong customer waiting here! Thanks again and keep doing what you do!' Jenna
'Hi. Just thought I would tell you how much I LOVE your Choc Shot it makes the best chocolate porridge ever!! Plus so many other delicious ways too. Guilt free choc heaven.' Alex
'Since I discovered Choc Shot, I use it in many ways here are some of the ways I use it: adding a couple of squirts to my banana, seed, sultana muesli energy bars, chocolate and banana tea loaf, 2 variations of chocolate mousse, one with Tia Maria, one with Baileys, 2 pieces of toast 1 with peanut butter 1 with a spread of Choc Shot and put them together yum, add some to a tea loaf. My son has a milk allergy so this is great for him, I am adding this to other "treat" recipes. I just found the Choc Shot by accident when shopping in Sainsbury's whilst looking for something to make a more indulgent hot chocolate, so it solved that problem too. Best of all it’s a healthier alternative to enjoy chocolate. Thanks' Chhaya
'I'm a Weight Watchers Member here in Southern Ireland and we've been told about your Choc Shot and we're all dying to get our hands on it, but can't seem to find it in any supermarkets over here. I'd need a bottle with the barcode to get your product into our stores across Ireland, can you please help us, we have a huge following here in Weight Watchers.' Julie
'I am so excited by your Choc Shot product and have yet to find it in my local shop. I am allergic to dairy and to find something indulgent that is dairy free is an absolute treat. I am also a consultant for Slimming World and on our plan we have calculated this to be an in control item for our members to enjoy. Once I find some I shall be sharing the information with them because treats are so important when losing weight. The Choc Shot was in our magazine a month ago and got the members very excited.'

You are in the minority! Wish you all the success.' Elaine

'I just had to contact you as I discovered your product the other day & was instantly transported back 30 years to a chocolate spread I enjoyed as a child. The taste is perfectly identical (not too sweet, dark & thick) and it brought about the silliest grin I can describe!' Belinda B
'I have a 2 and a half year old with a dairy allergy and it's difficult to find nice/sweet things so Choc Shot is a useful ingredient. I have some of the Sweet Freedom syrup and usually put a little in porridge.' Heather

'Ever since you've brought out sweet freedom, it's been doing wonders for my granddad's diabetes. He's had to stop using aspartame because he's been developing most of the side effects. It's such a great product to use for him. It's been such an easy solution to use with all different types of foods, he loves the Choc Shot. Hope you appreciate the positive feedback. Thanks' Leanne
'Hi - I am a massive fan of Choc Shot. I am a distance runner representing England and after years of injury and illness refuelling after training and racing is essential for me. I love your product as I eat very cleanly and healthily and your product enables me to get a sweet fix without the rubbish which I love as well as a sweetness pick me up after training. I cannot tell you how much I love your products :)' Claire P

'I love the Original and the Dark one. I can't wait to try the Choc Shot!' Pauline
'I have recently bought your sweet freedom natural sweetener. I am very impressed with the taste! Unlike most other alternatives to sugar it doesn't have a funny aftertaste and the sweetness really is, sweet! There is one piece of information however I can't seem to find; the GI. I would also like to try your Choc Shot!' Clare *Hi Claire, the GI is low at 38
'I haven't tried it on oatcakes, will do though! Thanks again for a very delicious product.' Adelle
'Hi, I just wanted to find out if Sweet Freedom and Choc Shot products were suitable in pregnancy? The reason I ask is because agave syrup is not recommended as it can stimulate contractions so I just wanted to be sure it was safe? The liquid chocolate was actually my reason for asking as I am having huge cravings for hot chocolate and had seen it in Waitrose! I previously used to use the regular versions on porridge having come across them in-store and having read about agave I was just anxious to check before buying any. Thank you for reassuring me.' Kelly
'I love the look of the cakes you put on Facebook earlier today and was wondering where I can get the recipe from. Have been telling everyone about Choc Shot! I love it! So glad you invented it!! ' Victoria
'I am a cancer doctor and professional triathlete based in Cambridge. My triathlon results in 2013 include winning Ironman UK and Ironman Wales and retaining my European duathlon title. As a triathlete with a medical background I am very conscious of the need for a nutritious diet to sustain my hectic life and support my training needs and recently discovered Sweet Freedom and Choc Shot in my local branch of Whole Foods. I've become somewhat addicted! One of my favourite post training treats is rice cakes topped with pumpkin seed butter and Sweet Freedom.' Lucy Gossage www.lucygossage.com
'I would just like to say I've recently discovered Choc Shot. I won't lie, it's amazing & I have become a little addicted to it as a hot chocolate & poured over a nice healthy bowl of fruit!' Sarah Brown
'Your Choc Shot product has been amazing for me. I have intolerances to gluten, dairy and soya and have found missing out on hot chocolate a miserable experience! I like the chocolate neat from the tube, mixed with hot water or hot rice milk. My boyfriend even likes it. He discovered it for me as he was on a mission not to let me miss out on treats! He loves it on porridge or toast! Thank you,' Louise
'I found Choc Shot on the hot chocolate shelves, two trays of it, and I took the remaining three from the first tray, leaving a whole tray for the next lucky customer. The girl at the checkout wanted to know what it was, so I enthused at length and told her to look at the website! I'm looking forward to some hot chocolate this evening! Something I would never dream of doing normally!' Karen
'We are big fans of your products and we also expressed our love for Sweet Freedom for our German readers: www.veganblatt.com/sweet-freedom-sirup/ We also created two naughty recipes :) Unfortunately we couldn´t get the Chocolate version, would love to taste that one. Is there a shop where we could get it in Germany?' Lisa
'Hi, I just wanted to say that I've been buying your products for a while now and I love them! I've just purchased your new Choc Shot bottle and cant wait to try it, keep up the good work!!' Jen N
'I’m a massive fan of Sweet Freedom personally. I use the dark syrup to sweeten my desserts, chai tea, cereal and the light to sweeten my coffee and salad dressings. I love how low GI it is and that it is produced in the UK (more sustainable than a lot of refined sugar sources).' Zara
'Tried Choc Shot today after seeing it in the Vegan Society magazine - delicious! Works well on crackers and toast as chocolate spread. There aren't many decent chocolate spreads that are vegan friendly, so this fills a gap nicely.' Jason
'Hi just bought your Choc Shot product and it tastes amazing on bagels with peanut butter!!' Victoria
'I really love your products and would love to try your liquid hot chocolate? Is there anyway I can get a sample to see if I enjoy this as much as your other products? I am so glad that I have found your products as they have been a real turning point in my shopping trips!! Thanks Sweet Freedom and have a fab day!' Emma
'I had Choc Shot with hot milk at the weekend - very impressive! I was thinking it might taste a bit dodgy, you know all this diet stuff :o) but was amazed how much this tasted like our regular powdered hot choc! My daughter also gave it to her friend who had it spread on toast ..... and he requested more! Well done!' Rob
'Found Choc Shot in Waitrose yesterday - seriously yummy - I had a celebratory piece of toast with a squidge on it and had to very firmly put the bread back in the freezer before I had another slice and then may have had another ... it's too good, and with raspberries, I would guess, it would be even better!' Katherine
'Just wanted to say your Choc Shot is amazing! Keep up the good work :) Recommended it to a few people who do reviews so hopefully you'll get a few more sales ;) yummy! I mix it in with warm All Bran but my favourite is over home-made banana ice cream ! I've also made a cake with it in and a peanut buttery chocolatey sauce! It really does sort out my chocolate cravings and is a fraction of the calories I love it! Will be sure to try out your other products and I will keep my eye on your recipes.' Jade A
'Hey! I'm a serial low carber with an optional aversion to sugar and sugary foods dye to a strong line of type 2 diabetes in the family. I'm ALWAYS looking for sugar substitutes and recipe alternatives, and your Sweet Freedom products are amazing! My favourite so far is Sweet Freedom Dark over homemade, sugar and flour free coconut pancakes, with clotted cream. Less than 10g of carbs per serving - a taste sensation and a diabetic's dream! Can't wait to try the Choc Shot. Keep up the good work ladies!!!' Claire
'I use it every morning in my porridge along with 2 tablespoons of Coconoil. Very tasty, healthy and extremely energising!!' Garry S
'This honey substitute has become a top seller since we launched it. It's lovely on toast but don't forget you can also use it in porridge and our favourite use is to drizzle it on carrots or parsnips before roasting, so much nicer then honey and so much better for you with 25% less calories than sugar and made from 100% fruit. You can even use it instead of syrup in recipes for cakes and puddings. Available in original or dark which is slightly stickier and with a deeper flavour.' Lisa and Jacqui www.veganstore.co.uk
'Just received my box of Sweet Freedom - had to try it (obviously) so had a bit of natural yog with a squirt on top - gorgeous! My son was so impressed he has asked for pancakes for tea so he can have some too. Result! Thanks for such a great product. Might even get me eating porridge again!' Kate
'All the very best and please keep up the fab work! It's great to have a natural sugar alternative for me and my family.' Sarah
'What a revelation - a natural sugar substitute that can be used in cooking, is low GI and even tastes great poured over natural yoghurt instead of honey!' Joy Skipper, Masterchef Semi-finalist and Nutritional Therapist

'SO much cheaper than maple syrup AND it's popular with all the fussy eaters round my breakfast table, thank you SO much!' Claire
'Hi, just wanted to say love the Sweet Freedom. My son is diabetic and he loves it on pancakes and porridge. The rest of the family also like it and I have been making cakes and cookies too which means my son can have treats in his lunchbox that he could not have before, and his school friends want them now too! Thank you.' Christina J
'Sweet Freedom means less on the hips and more sweetness on the lips. It's great stuff, I love it with Greek Yoghurt, raspberries and ground sunflower, pumpkin and flaxseeds. Enjoy...' Val
'Thanks again for giving me some "manna from heaven".' Carol G
'I love both of these items and would not be without them in my cupboards they are absolutely delicious on cereal, toast and to sweeten my drinks.' Ann H
'Made summer pudding with fruit from the garden and Sweet Freedom ... yummy with some half fat creme fraiche!' Karen
'Just joined Diet Freedom and purchased the Sweet Freedom and it is gorgeous! I cannot take coffee without sugar and since I am diabetic this is now out the window! Soooooo thankful for Sweet Freedom I can use it on my cereals and coffee and everything else too. Wonderful and it dissolves so perfectly and leaves no residue at the bottom of my cup or cereal bowl like so many other sweeteners I have tried before. Thanks Diet Freedom!' Arlene
'I have just been trying your Sweet Freedom, it is great! I had it on porridge and my 3 year old had it on his toast and we both loved it! I have just made a batch of ice-cream using it and I will try it out this afternoon.' Kirsty
'I am loving the 'Sweet Freedom' stuff for Jules' porridge in the morning & in plain yogurt too...it's great stuff!...' Britt
'I am very pleased with the product and am spreading the word, I am diabetic and have used it in my cooking and no one noticed till I told them.' Audrey
'I actually did some experimenting with it on Saturday, and am very impressed with the result. We had the Christmas staff meal at my house this year, and we have one member of staff who is gluten, dairy and sugar -free. Not a problem with the main meal, but puddings have always been a nightmare - there are only so many fruit salads you can take! So I rather ambitiously set out to make sticky toffee pudding, and it actually worked. She was absolutely delighted, and couldn't believe how good it was. I used the rich version, and it gave just the right flavouring. So many thanks for a great new product, I know it will get a glowing recommendation from the girls at Elixir!' Randi Henderson, Elixir Health (UK) Ltd
'I live in Ballymena Northern Ireland and love the Sweet Freedom I cooked beetroot yesterday and used it to pickle some - DELICIOUS! Thanks a bunch.' Arlene
'I shop at Sainsbury's in Hereford, The Co-op in Hay on Wye and Hay Wholefoods, also in Hay on Wye. It would be great to have Sweet Freedom in all these outlets and I will certainly shop more often in the stores where it is available.' Jayne A
'I use it all the time now and even have a bottle in my suitcase for my holiday. My niece is now hooked on it and has got someone else interested in it so the word is spreading. Well done to the team for creating it! Down 2.5 this week taking me to 14st 11.5 lbs from 15st 8 lb that is now 10.5 lbs it is moving at last but I do believe it is the lemon juice then raw veg juice and cutting out the sweeteners and using Sweet Freedom instead.' Lorraine
'I really liked your product by the way and have told others, my mum being one.' Fiona
'I recently purchased Sweet Freedom from you and am really enjoying it. I was going to try and make the blueberry muffin recipe which is on your website. I am surprised the recipe doesn't include flour but ground almonds instead, is this correct? (yes it is, ed) I am intrigued. Can't wait to bake them!' Frances
'My son likes Sweet Freedom on toast, I had it on my porridge this morning so you may have a convert...' Rob
'That sounds like a fun thing to put in the green room. It'll get them talking!' Sam, BBC
'I just wanted to let you know that I very much liked the free flapjacks I got with my order a few weeks ago. I meant to email you earlier but forgot so apologies this is a bit late. You should think about selling your bars made with Sweet Freedom on a permanent basis! Anyway, thanks again.' Frances T
'Just a quick message to say thanks for the flapjack supplied with my recent Sweet Freedom order - it was very good and I look forward to trying the recipe myself. Thanks again.' Michelle W
'The product you sent was super and I'd love to buy it but I can't find it in a major supermarket. Where can I get it from? All supermarkets should stock this product!! In Italy we have something vaguely similar (but not even close in terms of taste).' Monica
'Really liked the product and happy to see it saying vegan friendly!' Karin, www.veggievision.co.uk'
'Just like to say thank you very, very much for making such a great product. I am allergic to regular sugar (I have tried all different types and they all make my lymphatic system swell up and give me pimples) however your product gives me no such problems, it's brilliant. I really like what it is made from as well, the ingredients list is short and sweet and really healthy. So a BIG thanks.' Tim
'Fantastic - at last I have found a solution to what I thought was an impossible problem. I run the school breakfast club, as we have the Healthy Schools Mark we are unable to use sugar and artificial sweeteners are frowned upon, Sweet Freedom is a Godsend, brilliant.' Sasha B
'Yes I do own a car park company per my auto sig which doesn't sound of much interest to you and yes I am a crazed fan (have been buying your Sweet Freedom from Wholefoods for as long as it has been there)...! SF goes in my smoothies/iced tea etc most days. And sometimes on a spoon into my mouth when no one is looking!' Emma S
'Can you tell me where I can get more recipes as product is fab I bought 8 bottles and my sister also bought 8 after my recommendation keep up the good work.' Deidre
'Sweet Freedom has been a life saver as I am a diabetic and sugar is white death! You can bin all other "sugar" substitutes in favour of Sweet Freedom, it is, by far, THE BEST. Shall continue to harangue local Tesco manager.' Ian H
'Hello, I thought I would write and tell you how much I love this product, I was more than 10 yrs vegetarian but last June went vegan, I thought I was saying goodbye to honey but this is just so like honey in taste and texture, I am so happy as I love honey in sandwiches, it's just so amazing. Thank you so much.' Michelle P
'After I was diagnosed with Diabetes 2 years ago I was advised not to use sugar in hot drinks and to switch to sweeteners but I found that I could not enjoy tea and coffee with intensive sweeteners in place of sugar. I am really pleased to have come across 'Sweet Freedom' as it sweetens just like sugar.' Beverley S
'I made the sugar free flapjack today, florentines and the gluten free choc cake. Carob was very fashionable many years ago...it may be making a comeback...and why not? Sugar free flapjack was very good and so were the florentines. We will be selling them in our cafe tomorrow. I would like to order the 5 litre bottles ASAP...what is the procedure for that? Looking forward to more baking tomorrow!' Wendy at Goji Vegetarian Cafe and Deli, York
'Hi, I just wanted to let you know how much I love your product. I found it last week and everyone in my family loves it. We started "clean eating" about 2 months ago and I was buying unrefined organic sugar and organic honey - but then I found this and began substituting it into some of my favourite recipes - such as granola bars (in place of the honey) and muffins (in place of maple syrup) - today I googled your product and found your website - and WOW you have some fab recipe's that I can't wait to get my teeth into - especially the lemon curd - something I've been craving for a while. I live in Ireland and I'm wondering can you get the natural syrup over here?' Allico M
'Nutrichef (www.nutrichef.co.uk) really love Sweet Freedom and we made this simple banana recipe for our Love Fruit and Veg campaign http://youtu.be/Zq4EBdVO9Q4' Barbara C
'I would just like to encourage others who are struggling with weight loss and blood glucose levels. When I first started eating this way it was May of this year, my levels were between 6.5 and 8.0 and I weighed 11st 5lb and am 5ft 5ins tall, I know that perhaps doesn’t sound a lot but I was very uncomfortable in all of my clothes and just wanted to feel right. Anyway I have been eating low GL foods and am now 10st 3lbs and I feel great. I keep passing it on to friends because I know it works and I have had no hypos since I started.' Yvonne F
To Choc Shot makers
I recently started a weight loss programme and was pointed in the direction of your Choc Shot liquid. I had my reservations as many "diet" things can taste a bit empty. But I absolutely love it, and a day has not gone by where I haven't used it. Thank you for showing an old diet dog new tricks! Louise M
'I'd never heard of Sweet Freedom before and, as a diabetic with gluten intolerance and other digestive disorders, I was interested to see what it would taste like and how I would react to it. Well, I am smiling as I type this, so its not all bad! I have to carefully control my sugar intake, like all good diabetics. However, I am also gluten intolerant and suffer from chronic IBS, so have to avoid all wheat flour, yeast, concentrated carbs ... anything that tastes nice, it feels. Chocolate has been particularly hard for me, especially plain chocolate.
So, how did I fare with Sweet Freedom Choc Shot? I can have two teaspoons in my coffee, once a day, to make a lovely mocha. I have missed this drink so much, but it made me too ill. As long as I limit myself to two teaspoons a day, Choc Shot sits well with my dilapidated body. I get the beautiful taste of chocolate and I can drizzle it on chopped fruit, frozen yoghurt, porridge ... so many foods are now lifted with Choc Shot, without my body being affected. In addition, my children have benefitted. My daughter has Aspergers Syndrome (ASD) and her behaviour is often affected by the food she eats. She had Choc Shot on some pancakes for the first time and never have I smiled so much to see chocolate sauce smeared all around her face. It didn't induce a meltdown, she was absolutely fine.
