    I am not a fan of Stevia, but sometimes I just need to sweeten something a little bit. Can I use Swerve (erythritol) or Xylitol? These sweeteners taste much better than stevia. Anyone out there know if these are OK to use on the plan?

    Sweet leaf is a good alternative- I would steer clear of erythritol at this time… Xylitol is also hard on your stomach so be mindful there too! Not many people are using Xylitol as a sweetener of choice. I would experiment to see how your body feels!

    Stevia is the recommended sweetener if you have to use one though!

    Lauren… could I use Crystal Light Pure (with Stevia)? Before I started… I was a huge Crystal Light drinker… I have switched to just water and getting my 64 oz and then some daily… struggling with the water as I need some kick and flavor and miss my crystal light. Would that switch be ok? Thanks for your reply…
