Frannie, I use the packets of NuNaturals Stevia. My coach recommended that I don't go over three per day. The good thing is that it is really sweet, so you don't need much at all. I add it to my coffee, my olive oil and vinegar dressings, my stir fry meals, and sometimes chocolate pudding. Even with all that, I don't ever go over three packets.
Hope this helps!

frannie, i'll use a little bit of splenda in my coffee if i'm not mixing my morning coffee with a capuccino, vanilla pudding or chocolate drink packet in my coffee. all the ip products use sucralose as the sweetener so i doubt a little here and there will hurt, i've done fine the last two weeks with my WIs too hope that helps

Frita!!... That is a fantastic, really fantastic week one. I only had 5lbs and was over the moon with that, so you must be so happy!!!
Way to go!


BevS You mentioned potassium, could cause diarrhea, was that the pot/cal supplement from IP, or just a straight potassium pill?

Had a little NSV this morning, tried on a dress that I adore, yet never fit my hips....now it does!
I didn't lose a single pound last week and was a little deflated, but taking the advice of my fabulous 3FC cohorts , I thought I would check some of my "one day" clothes. ( I swear I buy some every month)
YAY!

OH! I am so sorry! Please stop and stay in touch. I have that within my family history. For us, everything has always worked out well. I wish you all the best!

Checking in! WI yesterday was down 4 lbs, not bad since I had fallen off the wagon on Sunday. Down 10.2 overall for the 1st two weeks. No CHEATING allowed now!

Oh and I lost 4 inches of boobs!

Frumpy...I am so sorry to hear of your diagnosis. I can only imagine the shock you are going through right now. Please wrap yourself in the love of family and friends, and know that when you have won this battle, you will be invincible.
Sending you all positive thoughts, energy and love.

It's the pot/cal supplement from IP. I think it would do the same either way though. I researched potassium online, and it can definitely cause diarrhea.
