I heard on the podcast that xylitol has the smallest effect on insulin of the alternative sweeteners. I’d love to see some studies and hear about n=1 experiments on that!
I love the taste of Lankato golden, but I have noticed when I use it, my sweets cravings definitely go up. Xylitol, not as much. When I eat insulinogenic foods, my appetite raises a lot so I suspect that’s good clue for me.
What about allulose? How does it affect blood sugar?
I know Dr Fung says no sweeteners, but my health is good, my weight is good, and my sweet cravings have decreased dramatically over the past year, and I find this WOE much more sustainable if I can sprinkle sweetener on some strawberries and cream, etc. I’ve been low carb for a year and a half, and it works just fine for me to keep sweeteners in the mix. Especially because I like baking stuff for my kids
Thanks so much everyone, I’m new to the forum and having a little hard time figuring out how to search old threads to get my answers.
