Do you eat artificial sweeteners?

I have cut them out of my diet for over 6 months, and feel so much better! I do miss the low calorie factor though! Now I'm going to try to cut the high fructose corn syrup, cause I'm pretty sure that's not much better for you!

  • I wish I could. I've tried stevia since it's best for diabetics (which I am) but I hate the after taste. So, sadly, whil love to say I'm an organic gal I can't give up splenda in my coffee. At least I only have 1 cup a day, but I really need to try stevia again because I don't have to worry about finding out it has long term use side effects....splenda being so new they don't really know what it's long term effects are.

  • No..I have tried because sugar is not much better..I do not like them as they give me a bad taste in my mouth and a headache.

  • Yup, I love the pink stuff and the blue stuff but I do not drink sodas anymore so I just use a little in my coffee

  • I'm so close to diabetic that I can't just drink sugary drinks. However, it might be worth cutting out these artificial sweeteners and seeing what happens.
