    I had been wondering how many tablets of Artificial Sweetener everyone is consuming, per cup. A Co-Worker told me, that I am using too many of those sweet pills. Actually alotta people had been telling me to cut down on the amount I am consuming. In the beginning I had been using 5 tablets...

    So... random quick question. I can't stand black coffee. It makes me nauseous. But it wakes you up and keeps you with energy so... is it okay to put some kind of calorie-free sweetener on it, like Stevia? Or what option can I have instead? I need to stay energized and moving throughout...

    So something I really stress out about and have a hard time working around is keeping sweeteners (not just actual sugar, any and all artificial stuff and substitutes) totally out of my diet. Based on the things I've learned about how eating anything sweet effects bodily processes it really...

    So I just realized that I could just eat sweetener that doesn't have any calories (erythritol) whenever I crave for candy etc. Does anyone else do this?

    I just started using Stevia in my baking and don't really have much experience with fake sugar in general. I like it so far and have had no trouble with it at all :) I am wondering if you have had any experience with Stevia sweetener before, and if so, is it good or bad? Do you recommend any...

    I have a serious sweet tooth, but I don't want to spend too many calories on i.e. drinks and stuff. On the other hand, the thought of consuming artificial sweetener makes me nauseous. Is there any low calorie sweetener that is actually okay for your body? I've heard good stuff about stevia, but...

    In contrast to popular opinion (or so I think?), I just straight up use regular granulated sugar, just not a lot. Artificial are usually 100 times sweeter than regular sugar so when I use it I just keep increasing my threshold for sweetness until it becomes too high that I have to come back down...

    Which one do you use? I used to put a tsp of brown sugar in everything and wouldn't count the calories but know that I'm restricting lower I'm going to count them. I bough Stevia the other day with high expectations but the aftertaste is so bad... Which one tastes the least bad? What are your...

    So like, I don't know if this has been discussed but uhhhh does anyone else use things like raspberry essence, caramel essence, vanilla essence, etc, to flavour or sweeten their drinks? I find adding a couple of drops of raspberry essence to my green tea makes it taste like CANDY. Super great...

    So I've been using Stevia, and honestly... it tastes bad to me. I need some low cal sweetener to put in my tea that won't chemically scare the shit out of me So what are your guys' favorite low cal sweeteners? How do you use them (in what)?
  13. Orthorexia
    So I have used sweeteners for a long time. I have all types and never really felt that it affected me. For some reason, the negative press/research never really bothered me. But I've been noticing lately that my use has seriously shot up. After reading various articles and blog posts online I've...

    Me and some of my friends have gotten on a "sweeteners totally won't kill us" kick again. My favorite sweetener was always xylitol because it's supposedly good for your teeth and sinuses, but I was wondering if anybody here knew anything damning about it? I know there's tons of conflicting...
