Artificial sweeteners

I add sugar to a lot of my diet and I know that has to stop. There are a lot of artificial sweeteners out there, though, so I thought I would try one. Which one tastes the most like real sugar to you guys?

Not great news but if you just stop using sugar in things, you get used to it and it becomes normal.

Artificial sweeteners aren't a good thing:

I use Splenda as well. I tried other ones but Splenda is the only one that tastes like "normal" sugar. I also use it in my cakes and pastries.

I have splenda in the cupboard but I cannot get use to it. I have 1 sugar in tea about 5 times a day so didn't think it was too bad?

I too like Silver Spoon Sweetness & Light, everything else adds a more bitter taste... I tried 2 in my coffee today, it was rank so I am trying 1 sugar 1 sweetener. Many don't agree with it over the aspartame, I've never got into it but if I lived life avoiding everything that is bad for me I would be shut away in an empty cave and never see the world.

There is natural sugars of course ... I have them in and don't give them ago I just think *CALORIES* ... bad ... maple, honey and agave are meant to be good, I actually only bought agave last week. I might try it next time I want 2 sugars I guess natural is better if you're going to add the numbers!
