I’m not one to eat desserts , cakes, candy or anything like that but I am a salt freak; chips, popcorn, pizza, French fries. So I guess most of my sugar comes from foods like breads, which is going to be the hardest thing for me to give up; yogurt chips, popcorn, etc. So now I’m researching the use of stevia and I’m getting all kinds of mixed info; some say it’s good for you and others say it isn’t. What are your opinions on stevia? Yay or nay?

I enjoy adding a couple of drops of vanilla creme stevia to a glass of sparkling water. But I am also still holding on to those last few pounds so I may try going without for a while. I'll let you know if it makes a difference!
