    If I really want something sweet, I'll just use sugar. It's got an added benefit of being dirt cheap. I don't want anything sweet too often, though, so it works for me.

    I hate stevia. It tastes like aspartame to me.

    I really like xylitol in my morning tea. That's the only sweetener I consume these days.

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    I have come to really like swerve - found it on Amazon. Expensive and not completely natural, but I also never have claimed to be 100% primal. I strive to be 85%

    All the time. I like black coffee, but can't afford to buy quality beans right now. And crappy coffee is only good if you sweeten it. Plus, I enjoy iced tea, and coconut flour pancakes. YMV, but I have not had any negative effects. I would like to lessen my use, simply as a matter of principle, but it isn't very high on my list of priorities.
    I use to go out of my way to purchase 100% pure powder, but in recent months, I have just been buying Truvia. It's a blend of erythritol, stevia, and (I know some may shudder) "natural flavors".
    BTW, I also use xylitol on occasion, and raw honey.

    I usually just use honey or sometimes organic sugar. But I dont add it to things very often.

    As you stumble to your bed
    You'd give anything to silence
    Those voices ringing in your head
    You thought you could find happiness
    Just over that green hill
    You thought you would be satisfied
    But you never will-
    Learn to be still

    I use stevia in my morning coffee. That's it.

    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.

    I bought some Truvia, which has Stevia as the main ingredient. I don't like it in coffee. It has a strong aftertaste to me; like saccharine used to. If I use a tiny bit in a fruit smoothie, it works, but really a tiny bit - like a few grains of the stuff. I have to say that if Truvia were my only alternative for sweetening coffee, I'd probably stop sweetening my coffee at all. I wish I'd bought it at Whole Foods, because their return policy is awesome for "I just don't like it."

    I occasionally use it in coffee or tea, but I usually use honey as my preferred sweetener if I really need to sweeten something.

    I keep a stevia plant on my deck and until recently used the leaves. Using it never had any impact on weight or fat loss, but having the sweet taste in my mouth definitely made me crave sugary items. So I nixed using it around the time I nixed eating fruit. No more sweets cravings!
