Throwing It Out!

Splenda, that is. I think it's wreaking havoc on my body and I don't like it. I can't say for sure but I have had some weird symptoms since I started using it again and I don't like it. So, out it goes. I had one packet this morning before doing my research and am now sipping a cup sans sugar or chlorinated sweetener.

It's actually not that bad. One thing Atkins has done for me is help me to stop those sugar cravings. I only use Splenda in my coffee. I try not to buy products that have Splenda in them. I don't drink soda (haven't had a soda in more than a year)anymore.

I am headed to the doc today to see if this latest issue is a result of my splenda intake. Whatever it is, I am not using it again. In fact, the whole box is going out in the trash today.

Has anyone here had any adverse reactions to Splenda or other artificial sweeteners?

Well, you know me: if it ain't real or fattening, it ain't a goin' down in my gullet. I'm sorry you are having reactions. What kind of reactions? I've always found those artificial sweeteners to be a tad too sweet with a tinge of metallic taste. So, I don't use them, never have, but to try it.

I drink mine black (again).

Have you ever tried Purevia or Truvia. They come from the herb stevia. You can find them in the sugar aisle. Not too bad.
