lol I don't get it.
When mine was high in Dec, I did some reading. Ketogenic diets can be hard on thryroid. Plus so can soy and there is LOTS of soy in IP. I chose to stay on the diet, do some meds (hopefully temporarily), and cut out soy. It DID make doing the diet a bit more of a struggle and my losses slowed a tad but I'm still good.

I'm taking Wholezyme Ultra from Whole Foods. Nothing on the label indicates this.

Lisa and Donna Gel, thank you for making me feel like I'm not crazy.

A bunch of the coaches at my clinic talk about how awesome stevia is, and I'm just sitting here like "Your tastebuds are broken."

I've read that there are certain people who have taste receptors who cannot "do" stevia. I can do it sometimes but I notice with IP, I really crave BIG flavor. The sweet leaf drops just don't give me that, if that's what I'm after.

Weigh in today and down another 2 lbs for a total of 34. I forgot to say in my post yesterday that I went to my regular doctor for a blood pressure check and it has gone down enough to go off the meds. YAY!!

The one and only time I tried Stevia I had to run out of the house and quickly and repeatedly lick the hind end of a skunk to get the taste out of my mouth. I am not a fan of Stevia.

Stevia is okay...but it def has an "off" flavor. What really kills me is Splenda in baked goods. BLECH!!! Awful.

I am also glad to see this discussion. I have been using it for years but, I really don't enjoy that much. The sweetness seems bitter to me. But I still use it, I think it is better for me than Splenda.

I was wondering about that too.... I guess we will see. My Primary Care is different thant he one I go to for IP (different offices) so I am not sure if my Primary will have to read up on the diet. I guess we will see!

But I wondered if it would be cutting back or out soy.

Stevia tastes bitter to me but not to the extent that I have to use the skunk remedy.

Hi, All!
I just hit 41 pounds lost since january 15th!!!! I'm so excited. I've gone down 2 full sizes on my lower body and almost 3 full sizes on my top!!! And I feel physically awesome, energy and not OLD. This is the most weight I've ever lost at one time. I have 40 more to go, but this has been so easy and so pleasant that I see no problem staying on it until I hit ideal size. I just want to say thank you to you all. I don't post very often, but I check in and read you all every day. I love this group, and want to let you know that you help me constantly and continue to be a true source of inspiration, cool ideas, sometimes comfort, and always new info. I love reading your successes, and even the "un-successes" because I always learn from them. HIGH FIVE to you all !

I started using the Nu Stevia. For me, no after taste and it's not bitter like the other. Whole Foods carries it , as well as Sprouts. It's liquid. I carry in my purse.
