Am I the only one who didn’t know that erythritol has 4 grams of carbs / 1 tsp? I’ve been using it, along with liquid Stevia in my BPC, and after 2.5 weeks on LCHF and not seeing much improvement, I looked at the carbs on the package. To my surprise and disappointment, I’ve been taking in WAY more carbs than I thought! ruled.me recommends this combination of artificial sweeteners, and I believe I heard it recommended on the Keto Podcasts, too. It was also recommended to “test” yourself to see what spikes or doesn’t spike your blood sugar. I don’t have any gadgets to test that and don’t really want to purchase anything, so am going by results in how I feel, etc.
Any suggestions, ideas, thoughts on this? I’m pretty annoyed that I’ve been ingesting way more carbs than I thought. And I want to get the word out in case anyone else is in my situation, thinking that the reason for artificial sweeteners is to reduce the calories/carbs, not have the same amount as regular sugar. (It is the same amount as white table sugar, from what I can tell.) It is also derived from corn. Isn’t that a bad thing? I’ve not eaten corn for four years!
