Two peas - it is working pretty well so far, but it does mean giving up the regular dessert
For me, I find that works better. If I eat A.S's I end up craving sweet, and I dont naturally crave sweet so much, I am more of a "rich" food craver. So after a week of s.f. pudding for dessert, or even the ricotta creme, I end up going berserk wanting the real stuff.
Now I just really limit sweets. I have about 1/2 t brown sugar in my oatmeal and 1 dove dark promise a day. Thats it on a regular basis. With the holidays I have had a cookie here and there and depending on the time of day it hasnt been too bad (night is better than noon). Anyway, so far I am finding fewer cravings this way than the splenda way
