I have eliminated sugar substitutes. I put fresh fruit in my cereal and have learned to love unsweet tea. I can order it anywhere and make it at home.

No it's from the stevia plant. The powder is combined with maltodextrin as a filler and to take away the aftertaste, as the herb has a very strong flavor. One packet is zero calories, 1 gram carb. I've tried other versions, including truvia... but Nustevia is by far my favorite.

Thank you for replying Meg, but isn't that an artificial sweetener? So confused by all the 'natural' substitutes, and such. lol

I use NuStevia (stevia) packets. They are my favorite with no aftertaste.

I'm desperately trying to cut down my intake of sugar, but I don't want to use an artificial sweetener such as truvia or splenda. What do you use? or what would you recommend? I want to keep the calories to a minimum as well. Thanks in advance.
