Yes. Anything with artificial things (astarame, Spelnda, etc) will make me hungrier, and while it does not raise blood sugar it does raise insulin! After this raise your body does a nosedive, just like if you ate real sugar (The Patient's Guide to PCOS). I use stevia in small amounts and it tastes great. Also, any products I buy with xylitol taste good, too, but can bother my stomach. Stevia has no negative bowel effects, but if you use too much it tastes bitter. A pack of stevia about as big as a pack of Equal lasts me about a week. I use 2 very small shakes of the packet, then save the rest for later. You can probably get 5 cups of coffee out of one small pack.
