What's everyone's opinion on using artificial sweeteners to help control sugar?
I use them for a LOT of things, my girlfriend even uses them for baking. :)

I use splenda and stevia but they say its all bad for us. I love the stevia its not to sweet.

I use them for coffee and use a lot. Is this good/bad? I've read pro and con

I use stevia in my tea and coffee. That one is okay, as it's natural. Some others can supposedly cause health defects. But I like the taste of stevia.
A year ago I gave up all artificial sweeteners and I started feeling better within 2 weeks! I know it affects us all differently, but it was like poison to my body.
I prefer Splenda, it tastes & measures like natural sugar. My husband likes it too.
I don't use it but I heard it was bad for you
Stevia is not natural... It contains erythritol - which is just another chemical as in all other artificial sweeteners. It's best to stay away from as much refined sugar as possible.

thank you I will go back to splenda or honey
Splenda is no better... Stick with honey or agave nectar in small amounts.
