This is going to sound weird, but in my opinion there is no reason to quit adding sugar to the food.
I read some researchments, and people who changes sugar for stevia or sacarine, they still gain more fat. I think the wisest thing is using less sugar everytime. If you add it to your coffee, instead or 3 tea spoongs, add 2, then 1 and finally 1/2 or even no sweeteners.
For cooking you can using honey, and good and raw one. You can find some in Iherb that are great.
While were discussing sugar I've got a soda hack for you all. If you have anyone in your family or friends that cant quite kick the soda habit, try using half a soda mixed with equal parts of club soda or sparkling water. Cuts out half the sugar and calories and still has a decently sweet taste. Works best with your lighter color soda like Sprite and mt dew.
I do this with diet soda when I feel a urge to drink one. I'll like using diet sunkist.. its way too sweet even though it's artificial sugar. So half serving w/ diet sunkist mix half serving of orange sparkling water. Refreshing and not too artificial tasting as it was before. Great to have once in awhile.
In the last months I tried Vitabiber to add fiber to my diet, it is also a great substitute for sugar, but it is really addictive. I got to buy 10 kilos and I could eat half a kilo a day. Note that it inflamed my gut, being a derivative of corn should not be a good thing. When two pounds remained, I threw it in the trash.
I'll keep eating my flax seeds in off season and psillyum husks to cut.
Normally, I do not consume sugars or sugar substitutes, a pepsi max here and there, that's all. Even my protein shakes I buy neutral taste.
