I tried a coffee with splenda. One pack was about equal to the sugar I take.

It's not perfect, but i could get used to it.

Without the “sugar spike” and the possible long term detrimental effects.

Actually I need to revisit the whole sugar thing. 

First, I need to get more Berberine. Then i need to look at my sweet intake. It's my one weakness and I know it is bad, I consume about 1/4 of the sweets i used to 2 years ago.. but i think i need to get rid of them altogether.

for me, the self control is in the shopping aisle, not at home.

My mother likes to have the odd treat. I think I am going to just get enough for her. 

I am doing everything else right.. I should do this as well.

Problem being canadahealthy in most cases “if they are in the pantry then they will find their way into the mouth”  :o
 The best scenario is that they never leave the Supermarket Shelves..    
Willpower and abstinence is really tested at 8 or 9pm when comfortable in front of the TV… it’s far harder to drive to the Supermarket then as opposed to walk to the pantry..

I hear ya. Having it in the house, even if for someone else is a huge temptation.

I usually reach for sweets when i feel stressed. I don't find crunching a carrot does me much good.

But in the last few weeks I have been running right before lunch. That usually sweeps the stress hormonal artifacts out of my blood stream and i have a feeling of contentment. Then the cravings are often gone for the day.

I have heard horror stories about aspartame,but only in an anecdotal sense.

I do know this, i know a lot of very large (obese people) who drink lots of diet coke with aspartame. So it must interact with insulin in a negative way just like sugar.

Sacharin also has a reputation as being carcinogenic.

For that reason I wouldn't use either as substitute.

Nothing re-hydrate’s the body like H2O. For a bit of flavour throw in a slice of 🍋
