I have a lot of food sensitivities, one of which is Sucralose, because it is bonded to the chloride molecule. I discovered erythritol several months ago and used it when a little sweetness was needed. I just can't stomach many of the bariatric products because of the artificial sugars. My question is: Has anyone here had experience with it after a bypass? It is absorbed not metabolized by the body but is normally dealt with in the small intestine.

I’ve tried them all too , not because of a sensitivity, but my taste changed so much after surgery that nothing tastes good. The erythritol and the Monk Fruit had such awful sensations in my mouth ( a hot feel ) and an after taste that I could not stand.. I didn’t want to go back to Splenda and even if agave is low on the glycemic index , it’s still got a lot of carbs and calories... I miss my Cappuccino but without any sweetness it’s a no go. I miss Splenda and will encourage anyone to try and talk me out of not going back to it( if only in my skim milk cappuccino)oooh, and Stevia ( same yucky after taste)

      Behavioral modification is the key... I went to my first session of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and it was incredible! We talked about the purpose behind certain unwanted behaviors as all behavior is developed to serve a purpose, being ready, willing and able, thought mapping (finding the origin/pattern of thought that ultimately contributes to certain unwanted behaviors), and replacing one behavior with another that's as equally rewarding, if not more.

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.
