Just a side not for anyone interested.... If you use splenda/truvia/purvia, which my coach allows, you get something else with it. Splenda is made with dextrose, maltodextrin, AND sucralose. If you use truvia/purviathen you are getting xylitol mixed in with the rebianna (stevia).

Xanthia, Given that dextrose/maltodextrin are not ideally something we add, I can see why some coachs are limiting the use of splenda or limiting added sweeteners to stevia only. Unfortunately, I think this is probably another one of those coach by coach things.

I wonder if your coach just doesn't want any added sucralose? HMMM??
Wow, duh. Yeah, I forgot about the packet ingredients. Maybe she is just trying to limit the random sweets from invading my diet again, I don't know. It is so true it is a bit different coach to coach. I'm so glad I have this forum to keep up on what's what. I swear some days I know more than her about the diet thanks to the people here.
