I just found out about Slenderize. It has 1 carb in one flavor and 3 in another flavor. So nice for a change.

It's been a struggle, but I've quit using Crystal Light because they use aspartame instead of Splenda. I really miss it!! Never heard of Slenderize so I'll google it.

They now have crystal light sweetened with Trivia that is really good. I love the lemonade.

I take Coke Zero and put in a few squirts of DaVinci sugarfree cherry syrup (Splenda)... presto, Cherry Coke Zero! Num.

I actually just tried coke zero and thought it was ok, tried coke cherry zero and liked it! so that is what I will drink for soda from now on. They also have a pibb zero that I would like to try since I didn't really like the dr pepper 10.

I was a Mountain Dew addict, which surely helped contribute to health problems, but quit by switching to SodaStream. It carbonates water and you add a storebought syrup to the water as much or as little as you like. They also have diet, lemonade, and I believe a sweet tea flavor. Full strength I think their version of Mtn Dew has 4g of carbs compared to 46g in regular Dew. If it helps anyone that likes their colas but want a cheaper alternative.....
