Topic: What's wrong with Splenda?
Wow...even though I am new here, I already know that I should read thru this Forum before I even post, but as I was glancing thru the list of topics, I saw some posts about Nutrasweet...and now there is a Splenda category...and I am just wondering what is wrong with these Sweetners?
I am going to a weight loss clinic, am taking an appetite suppressant (Phentermine),
was instructed to stay on a low-carb diet, and anything with artificial sweetners is fine...just no sugar!
I haven't started consuming Diet drinks because I cannot stand the taste...but some other products with artificial sweetners don't taste too bad, and I was happy that I was able to have them.
Also, my husband has Type II diabetes and has been drinking diet soda for years...
and I am always on the look out for "sugar free" treats for him!
Now we are both pretty much "sugar free" (at least until I get some of this weight off...I quit smoking several years ago...and took up eating to distract myself. At the time I did not care how much I gained, as I have never been heavy, and thought that it would be a cinch to lose it! WRONG!)
Anyway, what kind of sweetner do you all recommend if Splenda is no good?
Sorry for the long post!
