Hi Esperanza, I tasted it before adding the sugar (because I was planning on leaving it out) but, for my taste, it DID need the sugar. It definitely added a little something to the flavour. The original recipe called for 3 Tbs, but 2 seemed to do the trick.
I have never, ever, not even one time regretted not eating something. Never. Not once. Turns out telling yourself no feels marvelous. No deprivation passing up on *those foods.* The deprivation is EATING them and remaining overweight. You've got to raise your standards; requiring more from yourself. Challenge yourself. Push yourself. Work past the discomfort. Every time you do it, it gets easier and easier - Rockinrobin
