Hi Sandra, if you need to add a little sweetness to your tea or coffee then a small amount of stevia is fine. As you start to incorporate more wholefoods and less processed and refined foods into your diet your taste buds will adjust and you will probably find that you become more sensitive to sweet things, so you may be able to even wean yourself off the stevia to some extent.
Thanks and good luck!
It is weird, but the shakes cause me no bloating, and good weight loss. As soon as I eat the smallest amount of sugar, or artificial sweetener, then I lose no weight that day, and become bloated. Why does this not happen with the shakes?
