Sun Crystals are pretty good. It is a blend of raw sugar and stevia. My hubby doesn't like Truvia, he thinks it has a licorice taste to it. This I can put in his coffee and he doesn't notice...

I'm with Darway on this one. I went from a double double coffee (two sugar, two cream), to two milk two sugar, then down to two milk no sugar, and gradually reduced myself down to black. I can't even drink coffee with milk in it now. I notice the sweetness in everything. Even the smell of something is too much at times.

I think because of this I rarely drink soda anymore, diet or regular. I used to drink a lot, now maybe 3 or 4 a week, instead of 3 or 4 a day.


Doing this one day at a time.

Artificial sweeteners give me headaches (especially aspartame), so I don't use them. But for taste, if I had to, I'd go with Splenda.

I use Truvia, I prefer the taste of it over Splenda, otherwise I try to avoid other artificial sweeteners as much as possible because they give me a headache but the truvia doesn't, I haven't tried the Agave yet.

Most artificial sweeteners, particularly aspartame, bother me with a range of symptoms so I avoid them as much as possible. Fruit and regular sugar don't seem to affect me the same way, but I avoid added sugars whenever possible. I love to bake though, so I am forever testing to see how much I can reduce a recipe's sugar before it affects the chemistry.

I'm with gardenerjoy on this one... I really try to stay away from sugar and sweeteners of any kind but if I have to I go with raw honey, real maple syrup, molasses or agave
