Hi, ZR, well, since I last posted on this thread, I am now using Stevia, 1 tablet in my earl grey tea, no milk. I couldn't stand it in my coffee, and my DB, said he thinks it's when it's with the milk, as he has tea with milk, and he hates the taste, too. The good news for me is that I gave up coffee. I started just before Xmas, and went off it completely afterwards. If I need a comfort fix, I now have cocoa made on whole milk, with a little cream on top, and 1 stevia tab.
I gave the chamomile tea the flick, in fact, all green tea. I have all these packets of expensive teas, never gonna drink them!!   Confused

Well done you, it seems you are doing ok so far. What I eat now has not much relation to what I ate when I was first going off the fructose !!

I just ate what I needed to eat to not eat sugary things. Then after my appetite control started to kick in, I modified what I actually put in my mouth, and now have given up all sorts of nasties.

All I have to do now is get myself out walking.   Sad   as I'm stuck!

Good luck, keep us in the loop, we like to encourage newbies.

Sylvia x

SMILE!!

Hi,
I am new here, but just wanted to say I bought a stevia plant at bunnings, it is growing really well.
You can make your own extract by putting stevia leaves in with vodka, just do a search online.

Wow, dede, 5 boys before you got a girl, You're keen!!   Laughing  Wink


Thanks for the tip, I had been meaning to ask at my Local Bunnings, (Rockdale, in Sydney) but forgot last time I was in there. I actually emailed them to ask if they ever sold them & got a nice reply to say, check back in summer!!  You guessed it, I forgot.          Razz


Do you think it's worth buying the vodka? Or wouldn't you just be ok using it as any other leaf?  ie pour hot water over it & maybe keep a cupful in the fridge, maybe dry the leaves, tie up in a bunch, what do you think?

Blessings

I have put a fresh picked leaf into my morning smoothie if I am using plain yoghurt and it's a bit tart. I have also been meaning to try it in a tea the same way, but as I usually only drink hot drinks in winter I am yet to test it to see what it tastes like.

the reason we have sugar, salt and fat cravings is because they were difficult to come by as hunter gatherers, so we evolved to respond to them. they were all very good for you, because you would always be low on them and you could rarely over indulge. these days people have more sugar in one meal than they would have in a year as a hunter gatherer. when your system has developed to be hyper sensitive to something over millions of years of evolution, its hard to evolve a tolerance in the space of less than a century
btw, an old trick to avoid sugar cravings is to to put a pinch of L-Glutamine powder (an essential amino acid used alot in body building)under the tongue. 5 minutes later your craving is gone

Has anyone else had this problem with Stevia?
I tried a few days without it and was definitely less hungry overall. Now I have it again I just want to have truckloads of anything sweetened with stevia, and find myself binging again, wwwhhaaat? It seems obvious, just don't have it, but then I was miserable without "something" sweet and found just a few berries didn't cut it. Maybe if I went for longer I would get used to it. "sigh"!

Please let me know if anyone else feels compulsive with stevia and then I'll know I'm not imagining it!

Just wondering if the products you are buying from the supermarket is actually Stevia or something else?  I bought two products off the supermarket shelf as an experiment recently and after close inspection of the packaging discovered that whilst the labels say they use Stevia extracts it appears there is no such extracts in the product - but plenty of Erythritol.  Erythritol is a sugar alcohol made by fermenting glucose with yeast.  This may be the soiurce of the odd tasting experience many members have reported.
The two products I bought were Natvia and Naturals
