I find the Kal powdered Stevia extract has less of an aftertaste in my coffee than the Kal liquid.

If you dont eat or drink anything sweet at all for some months, you will get used to it, and if someone gives you for example a diet coke after you have learned to taste food and drinks without sweetener, the coke will taste awful.
I cant drink diet coke or eat candy anymore. It just tastes awful. And since I know it tastes awful, I never want to taste it again.

I found out the more natural foods I eat the better. No juices, no artificial sweetners (which are hundreds of times sweeter than juice), no pop, no white flour (I now hate the taste of bread), only olive oil to cook, other vegetables oils are as terrible as lard, and I am growing more and more of my food, so it is vine ripened. I only eat three times a day, no snacking. Since I don't take medication, the snacking is not a problem, but I have friends taking Metformin and other drugs, who snack because their blood sugar goes too low and they get sick. I don't eat too much protein, but I do take lots of fish oil with every meal, a supplement pack, and pantethine and calcium at night. I think the fish oil does the most good. When I take it and lower the protein, I have more energy. I was diagnosed two years ago by my doctor as diabetic when my blood sugar tested out at 135. At the time, I was feeling kind of down and had gone on a junk food binge to cheer myself up. Anyway, I realized how much I needed to work on making changes at that point. I was afraid of going on a medication, so I have been experimenting with different foods. Broccoli/rice is a very good combination also. Forget bread and diet foods, juice, sweet fruits, too much red meat. I am never hungry, either. I try to get my 8 hours of sleep, which helps. It feels good that I can walk right by the treats table at work when we have our monthly company lunch and not even care.

The one thing I do take are supplements, and they are expensive enough. The FDA is trying to get these under their control so that big pharmaceutical companies can grab hold of the cells and start charging us a fortune. Please read the following article. Also, you can do a google search on the issue as to what is going on in Congress. If you think Obamacare is bad, this will cost you even more.

Take Action, Protect Dietary Supplements

And, you can use musrooms in just about anything you cook. They are a food staple for me. You can saute them, put them in scrambled eggs with peppers and all kinds of herbs, with meat, with okra, on pizza, in hamburger dishes, and probably a lot of other ways. They are very nutritious also, as well as low in carbs.
