    Does having splenda effect ketosis?? I am paranoid that if i have them then it will slow my weightloss.

    Also how many muffins can you have a day? Can you have all your 3 mikshakes as muffins?

    I hope everyone is having a good day :) xx

    Thanks for replying trina. I have made a muffin today without splenda and was just wonering how it would taste it with it. I was going to have another one tonight, so thanks for letting me know i can only have 1.

    I think i'll have a choc mint shake instead. I have 1 sachet of leek and potatoe soup but i'm too scared to try it because all the soups made me feel sick last time i did CD.

    I think i'll leave it for a while, lol.

    Thanks again! I hope your having a good day :) xx

    I don't use Splenda but I do use just one hermeseta or sweetex. I find using two makes the muffin too sweet. I make my muffin mix with hot water from the kettle. I dissolve the hermeseta in a little drop of water then mix in the milkshake powder. The good thing about that is that licking the bit that gets stuck on the spoon tastes more like warm porridge then, LOL. But I found the whole crushing the hermeseta a bit of a pain (bits pinging across the kitchen :D) which is why I hit on the idea of dissolving the hermeseta first.

    Oh, and I've never found that using hermesetas/sweetex affected my losses. :)

    I use splenda (tablets not powder) and it is fine.

    I made a Fruits of the Forest muffin last week and it was pretty rubbish, but also really salty. Maybe Splenda might make the difference.

    I bought a squeezy tube of chilli from the fresh counter at Sainsburys and have been adding it to the soups I find a bit dodgy (Mushroom and Leek/Potato). :wow: It really spices up the boring flavours! You could try this.

    I find some muffins really salty too. The choccie ones are ok without a sweetener, though.

    Thank you for all your advice and suggestions. Sorry for the late reply, i decided to get some uni work done and i kinda got into it. I think the choc milkshake tastes ok on its own as a muffin but i'm just wondering what it would taste like abit sweet. I might give it ago tmrw.

    I hope you've all had a good day :) xx
