I'm sllloooowwwllly coming around to this LC/HF eating and was wondering what you all eat for lunch? I've had a lifelong pattern of a sandwich and fruit for lunch, but that's too many carbs.
... for those that may be NEW to the forum, MCS means their low-carb cookies - check the recipes section...Two chocolate chip cookies, 2 packs of hot peanuts, 2 cheese sticks. Seafood night out tonight.
The granulated version of sucralose (Splenda) is bulked up with maltodextrin (in fact, maltodextrin is the primary ingredient), which is where the carbs come from. This is to make it measure spoon-for-spoon like sugar. It can deliver a nasty spike too. I use liquid sucralose instead, which has nothing added to increase volume & doesn't spike me.This has nothing to do with this thread but I am still in awe that a couple of Splenda is 24 carbs. Is this really correct? I saw it posted somewhere here.
I think there are many brands - what I have is EZ-Sweetz, a highly concentrated version which takes only 5 or 6 drops to equal 1/4 cup of sugar. The DaVinci/Torani/etc. syrups are also liquid Splenda, come in many flavors and are less concentrated.I don't know how to put this post where we were talking about Splenda. Sorry, but where do you get liquid Splenda and is it expensive? Trying to say this to Shanny or anyone.
