I'm thinking of trying to give up fake sugar for a couple of weeks and was wondering what you all do. (I've been having stomach problems, tested negative for Celiac, saw no difference when I went lactose-free for a month, and now I'm wondering if the fake sugar is causing the problem.) I usually have one in my coffee in the morning and another couple of diet sodas during the day. A friend w/ T1 told me she just puts 1 real sugar in her coffee and doesn't bolus and is fine (her ratio is 1:10).
BUT ... I (heart) diet soda, am addicted, wondering if I can live w/o it! I've had D since way before carb-counting, so I've always drank diet and regular seems like a pain since I'd have to bolus and because it reminds me of having a stomach virus as a kid and my Mom would make me drink regular ginger ale.
Has anyone else tried to give up splenda, equal, etc? Do you think that new truvia (which I read somewhere hasn't been shown to be safe! ack!) counts?
