I am a week into prehistoric Atkins induction.
I have absolutely no problem living without breads, pasta, sweets, carbs in general.
I was always the guy that preferred extra meatloaf to having desert.
However I worry about my daily Lg McDonalds coffee with 5 cream and 5 splenda.
I don't care about the caffeine intake, I accept whatever downside comes with that.
Best online info I can find says the creamers are carb free, and the splenda packets have <1 gram carbs.
How do 'yall' view Less than 1 gram? You count half a gram each? Count a whole gram each? Stay away totally?
Any ideas for a better sweetener than the Splenda?
AND on a slightly related topic, are all sugars equal?
Meaning, is a gram of sugars in a bratwurst, the same as a gram of sugars in ketchup? The same as the Splenda?
Thanks in advance!
