Splenda girl here especially in beverages. If I want sugar, I want sugar in a small piece of fudge, not the sugar free stuff.

Find what you like and do that. Maybe you are happy with real sugar (however you define that) and almond milk in coffee as an example. Whereas for me, I like Splenda and half & half. About the same calories but I want the cream feel in my mouth and Splenda is close enough for sugar taste without aftertaste *for me*

Of course, every "man-made" chemical
COULD have some kind of negative effect on one's body,
but Personally, I am an Advocate for Artificial Sweeteners....
especially Splenda.

When the subject comes up, I usually say that
My philosophy about Splenda is similiar to
that of the people Against Gun-Control....
They will have to "pry it from my Cold, Dead, Hands."

This is a debate that will continue on for as long as i can imagine. I know there are definite negatives to using them, though i consider them more health then weight issues.

I abuse splenda, and i did so when i was actually thin so i don't worry about it adversely affecting weight, and its worth it to me to cut the calories (i drink a lot of hot tea, and i use a good deal of splenda in it, and i drink 2/3 diet sodas daily). One of these days i do want to give it a try to cut splenda out to see if it helps any of my GI issues, but that day isn't happening anytime soon.
