I'm not saying you should have three bowls of frosties with full fat milk and more sugar but adding a small amount of flavour to significantly improve the taste (whether honey or jam or woteva) will encourage you to continue with an otherwise boring food. Wouldn't it?
I think that would be lovely and I completely agree, that would be the best approach to take. However unfortunately my issues with sugar are something like addiction - for all I know it might even BE addiction if that's possible - and telling me that I can "have just a little bit, it won't do you any harm" is a similar scenario to telling an alcoholic that its perfectly all right to have just one glass of wine. See, we both KNOW its perfectly ok to have a little /just one - we simply aren't capable of DOING that.
It will only make me miserable until I can do my jeans up without threatening to do myself an injury. Once I can see results (somewhere other than the scales) I'll be fine with the no sugar thing. I hope.
