    Just starting and wondering about Stevia?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    As stevia is a plant based sweetner, is it allowed in the Primal Blueprint? Thanks all!

    I use it. Just go for a good brand. The cheap ones can taste funny.

    I use liquid stevia from NuNaturals. The alcohol-free variety tastes better than the other. For baking, I generally opt for Z-sweet erythritol, however.

    It is allowed, as I understand PB; though if it causes you to crave sweets, then you may have to give it up. I had to quit all sugars and all artificial sweeteners, even stevia.

    I was a sugarbaby; meaning since I was born I was given lots of sugar, and ate lots of processed foods, especially sweets until I was into my thirties. Most people in the west were/are sugarbabies.

    “How does today’s youngster educate his sense of taste? By submerging it in a sea of sugar from the time he gets up to the time he goes to bed.” W. Root and Richard DeRochemont, Eating in America (1976)

    Ditto. It was just better for me to quit all sweet stuff.

    There's another recent thread about whether stevia causes insulin spikes here:
