Diabetic safe sweetener? Candida Cure searcher?

My public challenge to go sugar free till Thanksgiving is going great!

Over 80 people have raised their hands to join me in avoiding all added sugars -

whether you joined today, yesterday or 2 weeks ago with me, Congratulations!

Sugar is one of the most addictive foods out there, and it can be tough to stay away from

its sweet siren song.

The good folks over at SweetLeaf Stevia got excited by all the chatter online, and

offered to send me a bunch of samples of their flavored stevia drops. I’ve tried most of them out,

and they’re great!

your blood sugar. That means it’s safe for diabetics and people looking for a candida cure.

    I would love to try those stevia drops. My biggest challenge with food is eating out. They’re so sneaky & will add anything to make your food taste better or more addictive so that you’ll continue to come back. I love to prepare my own food & then know it is clean.

  2. mich says:

    I already use liquid stevia :) and eat a pretty wholesome diet and can honestly say, I do not have cravings. Of course when I ate the SAD, I suffered terribly with cravings! Never heard of Sweet Drops but will certainly be on the look out!

  3. I just can’t seem to get away from the sugar cravings. I have Candida and it is really difficult

  4. Kyle Miller says:

    My biggest challenge with food cravings is that sweets and junk food is always around me cause of my family and they are not health people as it is. I have never tried these drops before but they sound pretty good

  5. krystle freeman says:

    Mine is a healthy drink for my children that satisfies them without sugar high and eventual crash… watermellon is amazing!!!!

  6. Shannon says:

    Sweets may be my biggest craving challenge, so what is frustrating is that stevia- or naturally sweetened treats (the ones that truly satisfy me) are not readily available. :)

  7. Sara says:

    Hi Alex,
    I don’t have facebook but hope you will consider this my entry to win. My biggest challenge with food cravings is ignoring them at night while sitting in front of the TV! I actually crave salty snacks way more than sweets. I love stevia drops and use the lemon flavor in my decaf iced tea every day!

  8. Karla says:

    My biggest challenge with food cravings? Not eating junk food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! My neighborhood isn’t exactly known for its organic markets. I do, however, use stevia whenever I can purchase it.

  9. Dena says:

    SOOO hard to stay away from sugar. Live in a cold place (no farmer’s markets 9mo of the year), and have 6 kids. Hard to overhaul the family’s diet. Many years of bad habits. Never give up.

  10. Lisa says:

    I think my biggest challenge, especially this time of year is when staff members in my building bring in sweet treats. They put them on a desk that is viewing distance from mine so it’s difficult when that 3pm lull comes around to resist.

  11. Stana says:

    My biggest challenge is having a house full of people who aren’t sugar free. My husband baked cookies the other day!

  12. Sandy says:

    Normally, I’m pretty good with eating healthy and don’t have much issue with cravings. But right now, I’m going through a lot of emotional stuff, and suddenly I just want to eat junk food, primarily sweets. I don’t have the time or energy to cook as much as usual, and it’s so tempting to just grab some junk, like leftover Halloween candy, rather than making a nourishing snack.

  13. Tiffiny says:

    Sugar is one of my craves – I feel that I have tried everything to give up sugar. All I can do is take it one day at a time. My record for no sugar has been 4 days – then I had to give in – had a major headache. Hoping to try other options to break my record.

  14. Monica says:

    I just had a bad case of food poisoning and after recovering the thought of eating kind of grossed me out. It really made me think about every meal and after a week, I’ve stayed away from sweets all but one day and have eaten only one restaurant meal. Before this, I hate multiple meals a day at a restaurant and had a small dessert almost every day of the week. Cravings from addiction and frustration and stress are very hard to overcome. I hope I can stay on track.

  15. Sooz says:

    I don’t have any problem giving up sugar. My biggest food obstacle is craving something hot and savory in the morning when it’s been advised to just fruit and smoothies/juices. I’m used to the typical hot breakfast (eggs, etc.) I’m trying a happy medium of having soup in the morning. I loves me some soup! Thank you for everything!

  16. Cherie Parry says:

    I always beat myself up when I’m doing so well at eating the right things and bam, especially at night I get a major chocolate craving!

  17. micki says:

    My biggest challenge is avoiding sugary foods when I am overwhelmed. When I am busy I just grab whatever is convenient and available.

  18. ssqcorner says:

    I didn’t realize there were some many flavors.

  19. Trisha says:

    I have come SO FAR in the quest to change the way I eat: gluten free, casein free, cutting out refined carbs. But the sugar! Oh my goodness. I transitioned away from white refined sugar to stevia and coconut sugar (even cut out agave). But Stevia is so expensive! I bought a Stevia plant or two for my yard to try and grow it myself, but my son kept peeing on the leaves. *sigh* Flavors are great for cooking and baking! Keep up the great work, Alex. You are an inspiration.

  20. Meagan Leathers says:

    Yay for no sugar!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Joelle Goodwin says:

    My mom lives with me, she does not realize that she is addicted to artificial sweetners, the blue stuff, the pink, the yellow, you name it she uses it or has used it and she does not hear me when I tell her she is putting poison into her body. If I make a nice healthy smoothie for her that would be plenty sweet for the average person, she will add two or three packets of fae sugar. She has maladys and ailments too numerous to mention, some I am sure are directly related to her use for so many years of artificial sweetners. Perhaps trying this Stevia, that is supposed to be all natural (I am taking your word for it Alex, because all the other ones say they are “natural”), just maybe if she tries this we can wean her off of the fake sickening stuff.

  22. Jennifer Smith says:

    Having recently given up Diet Coke – you know, like you told me to do 7 years ago – has left me feeling better but wanting flavor. I drink a lot of water and the occasional tea but have often felt that the tea needed a little something. This may be it.

  23. Lisa says:

    I keep looking for new, quick breakfast ideas.
    My new favorite beverage is some vanilla stevia in sparkling water – tastes like a cream soda!

  24. Dee Robinson says:

    My biggest challenge is being in the military and having to be on the go all the time so I do not have alot of time to eat something heathly unless it can fit inside my uniform pocket. So I am always grabbing unheathly items to eat on through out my day. Once I get home, I’m too tired to cook a heathly meal which I know is starting to affect my son eating habits. I try and preplan my meals before each week but as I said before I am always on the go. You never know when the military is going to call you for some duty. Since I do drink alot of water, I’ve never tried the drops but I would add them to my water just to control my sweet tooth.

  25. T Maria Ratzke says:

    I would love to try these drops. I would really love to try them in sparkling water instead of high calorie soda. I like that stevia is plant based and from nature.

  26. Annette says:

    I do not have a Facebook page so this is the only way that I can enter. My biggest challenge is sugar in the form of gummy candies or dark chocolate. I am truly addicted. I either have to not eat it at all (and it takes a few days to go clean and withdraw) or eat it. Not so good at sometimes eating and sometimes not. Worst time is during PMS. Other times of the month I find I can control somewhat. Would love some alternatives or ways to break “the habit”.

  27. Jaylee says:

    My cravings are the worst ones– sugar and starch! It’s a toss-up as to whether I would cave to potato chips or a bowl of ice cream. Cinnamon rolls cover the spread. Did you see that they have white chocolate peppermint PRINGLES out for Christmas?! OK, well…I’m not sure that sounds all that good but I’m not opposed to trying them–haha!

  28. Jennifer Arent says:

    My biggest sugar cravings are when my teenagers are eating sweets right in front of me…I think “just one little taste” and it’s all down hill from there…

    I’d love to try these drops – they are fascinating and could give me the little fruity sweetness I’m craving instead of Mambas :)

  29. Karen says:

    I crave something sweet after dinner. You know, after the kids are all in bed, the house gets quiet….I just need something sweet!! I didn’t know these little drop existed! My whole life has just taken a huge turn for the better!!!
