    sugar free jellie does it for me even though i know i shouldnt have it cos of aspartyme,
    I've seen some sugar free sweets on the low carb megastore and on amazon that look very tempting!
    actually i may go make some jelly as i've been unable to stomach anything today but that may do it!!!

    Double cream, whipped, or some creme fresh with a tiny bit of cocoa powder and a teaspoon of splenda. Delish with a couple of sweet oopsies if you can be bothered making them - failing that, its just good out a cup with a teaspoon! lol!

    I make sugar free jelly with no sugar fizzy pop. Also i bought some mints and butterscotch sweets from Aldi.
    They are 0.4 carbs per 100g, and the packet is 44g. And there is sucralose in them not aspartame.

    There is quite a few in the packet and i only have 5 today.

    Elemental....Please take note.

    After having about 8 of these sweets (i said 5, but i think it was about 8)
    I was on the loo with really quite bad runs :eek::eek: and my tummy was doing ten to the dozen.

    so perhaps for me 2 or 3 might be ok but I'll have to be really careful and perhaps only have them when i'm struggling or on.

    Mind you i remember when i ate a whole pack of sugar free polos in one sitting then i got the runs then, but i'm ok with normal polos.
    I think it must be something in the sugar free sweets that i don't tolerate well. :cry:

    Mind you evberyone is different

    Yes warning - lots of sweetners give people tummy problems. And every person reacts differently to the different ones. You have been warned :eek: ;)
