I use a sugar/Splenda blend, and not much of it at a pop, but then, I'm not as carb/sugar sensitive as some people.

Stevia is a good alternative

I am 3 years post-op RNY gastric bypass. I strictly avoid processed sugars. I have a sweet tooth and that is one of the major causes that contributed to my weight gain over my lifetime. I limit myself to artificial sweeteners (such as Splenda and sugar alcohols), to natural low calorie sweeteners (such as Stevia) and to the natural sugars found in fruits and milk. I had diabetes. That went into remission when I left the hospital two days after surgery and I have not taken any diabetic medicine ever since and my blood sugar levels are good. I test my blood sugar levels periodically. I read the labels of all food that I consume. I look at the grams of sugar per serving. If it is above 5 grams, I look at the ingredients. The ingredients are listed in order by highest percentage, and if the first 5 ingredients contain processed sugar (in any of its many forms), then I avoid this food, like a plague.

This is a list of sugars I avoid: Sucrose (table sugar), Fructose (honey), Dextrose, Maltose (malt sugar), corn Syrup, corn solids, high fructose corn syrup, cane sugar, evaporated cane sugar, molasses, corn sweeteners, brown sugar, barley malt, beet sugar, pure maple sugar and date sugar.

I'm all about Stevia.

If it is something that I want to add flavor to I use Torani sugar-free syrups. I make Decaf iced green tea and I'll add the Torani peach or mango syrups to it. Mmmmm.

I use stevia and Monkfruit as much as possible. I really don't like the taste of Splenda but it's in a LOT of flavored Protein powders, syrups and Protein Bars.

Stevia, great stuff. It was hard getting off of artificial sweeteners in diet sodas. Over time you will find you will enjoy non carbonated beverages.

Stevia is an acquired taste

I personally don't use any non sugar sweeteners. I don't like any of them but i do use stevia for my daughter and husband.

I will be three years post op in Dec and my sweet tooth disappeared completely. If i want something sweet I buy a slice of SF cheesecake with no crust. I try to keep under 20-30 grams of carbs a day or maybe less. I only focus on Protein threw out the day. I had the SADI or one loop DS.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
