Love this cookbook,
This review is from: Eat What You Love: More than 300 Incredible Recipes Low in Sugar, Fat, and Calories (Hardcover)
The recipes are easy to follow and still have the great taste you expect. Love the cake batter milkshake, I do use other alternitive to sugar products that are more natural but splenda is okay too. I would like to see more recipes that use more natural sugar products such as brown rice sryup. I gave five stars due to easy to follow, taste, and low calories. I hope to see more from the author, this has made weight lose fun for my family and me.

I understand your desire for natural sweetners. However, the whole purpose of the cookbook is to have lowfat/low calorie foods that are tasty. Using Spenda is part of this. The brown rice syrup you mention would add calories.

Yes, but calories are so unimportant when you consider the fact that you are eating chemicals by using Splenda! Studies show that people who use artificial sweetners are in fact heavier than those that use natural sweetners. Those chemicals are what are going to give you all kinds of health problems in the future, not the few extra calories. Just keep that in mind. And this is also coming from someone who has diabetes. There are ways to even eat well with diabetic problems without using artificial ingredients.

How very true. I'm not a Diabetis, I'm not overweight, I just want to eat healthy, and replacing sugar with Splenda is not the way to go.
I did try splenda twice, and my throat closed up!
Stevia is organic, and is much better then anytype of fake sugar.
We now know that sugar free soda's are causing more obese people then sugar.
If you want a long healthy life , with a good quality, do not eat prosessed foods.

I agree Splenda is bad. I used it for years before I found out it contributed to making me have metabolic disorder and it harms your liver as it is chemical treated and the body sees it as an invader. I am so glad that now Stevia a natural sweetner now comes in the big bulk bag like Splenda, Just a green bag=natural.

It's also important to note that there are many of us who are actually allergic to Splenda. It's great to know that you can substitute a healthier option in for it like stevia. Please remember when you are cooking with Splenda and are sharing with others to dislose that you used it. Otherwise, you could have some very sick dinner guests on your hands!
