    Does Stevia Cause the Same Insulin Spike as Sugar?

    I am trying to eat and drink a lot healthier since I found out that I have too many of the smaller particles from my last bloodwork. I have really cut back on sugar-like NO more sodas (and that includes diet sodas with their chemical sugar-subs), no more coffee cakes, no more fast food, no white bread etc. My only real goal to to convert small particles to larger particles.

    Does anyone know if Stevia is just as bad from an insulin-spike standpoint than regular sugar in the raw? I am hoping to hold onto my cup or two of coffee per day with one packet of Stevia. It shows zero calories-which that part doesn't matter so much......just wondering if it is better for you. I know all of the fake sugars that someone dreamed in a lab are bad for you.

    If there is no advantage to Stevia-like I was told in the past that there is-I may as well stick with real sugar in the raw in a very limited amount.

    I will say this (and I know this isn't the weight loss board) just dumping all sodas and pastries from my diet cause me to lose 5 pounds in 3 months. That surprised me.

    Stevia is fine, Xylitol is as well and it tastes better, I think.

    Looks like I'll just stay with Stevia....I've gotten to where the taste doesn't bother me at all.

    Thanks for your reply!
