Please help with sweeteners
Hello to all
First..my english is not great but i will try write good haha..
I'm 35 years old,from Croatia...My weight is terrible 130 kg (170 cm tall) and i'm diabetic 2 (on pills) ,i start today with this diet..and still reading book.
Can u tell me what to put in coffe because Tim said all sweeteners even stevia are bad..I can't drink withou nothing... (and i put really little milk in coffe twice in day,i know it's not good..but so love milk lol ).
The Best Answer
If you need sweetener use Stevia, or Nutrasweet. Going by the book Tim says he gets up to 16oz of Diet coke a day with no negative side effect. a little research shows this is more than four packs of nutrasweet.
based on thisI'd go with Stevia as it does not increase blood glucose or insulin.
Yes I know that is in direct contradiction to Tim's tweetbut if you follow the link and look for stevia someone is asking him to give a yes or no on Stevia and his response is "Here you go: If it’s sweet, I suspect it will spike insulin. No sweets."
So I'd go with the research versus his guess.
First of all welcome to this lifestyle, hope you stick around, I love meeting people from all over the world on this forum.
This is a tough one for a lot of people and definitely something that takes some getting used to...its kinda like drinking whiskey, no one likes it off the bat but some like me grow into and now love it.
Sweeteners are off limits but Tim does recommend two things which I've used with good success:
Ground cinnamon - For me it actually milds the flavor of the coffee a bit
Vanilla extract - a few drops of the real stuff goes a long way and really gives a great flavor. Be warned though because a few brands add a lot of sugar to it.
Heavy cream - its better to use heavy cream (whipping cream) instead of milk. A little goes a long way
One thing I have noticed a few people mention here and it makes a big difference in getting used to the flavor of unsweetened coffee is to make your coffee milder or lighter, aka use less grounds or more water. This i think makes the biggest difference. Hope it all goes well and best of luck!
