    Hey, im sorry, i know this question has been covered before but cant find any of the posts lol. Ive never really used sweetners in the shakes but getting a bit bored of the chocolate and its blandness! Ive just made one up with a teaspoon of candarel and its so much better! Really brings out the flavour!

    Kind of worried tho cos im sure i seen your only meant to use tablet form. Is there a reason for this? And do you think candarel powder sweetner would be ok? I only plan to have it in the choc shake, so prob use one teaspoon a day (on average cos i dont have a choc shake every day lol) x

    You aren't supposed to use the powdered one just the tablets.
    Not sure why, think they may be higher carb but don't quote me on that :)

    yep its def only tablet sweetners but Im sure 1tsp wont affect you as I have used the powder form in tea in a cafe when they didnt have tablet form and was fine :D
    Probably best not to make a habit of it and better to get some tablet sweetners in but once in a while shouldnt really do you any harm, its a bit like everything on this diet see how it effects you :)
