Stevia instead of Splenda?

Hello fellow champions!

Was wondering a couple things about artificial sweeteners. I've been using Splenda 2 packets) in my luscious heavy cream laden coffee and counting 1 carb per packet but today I noticed My Pure Via has <1 g of carbs per packet. Only needed one packet though I would prefer 2. Are we supposed to count 1g for the Truvia/Stevia/Pure Via as well? Thanks and happy Sunday.[IMG] [/IMG]

My Splenda packets say <1g so I count 1 carb for each.

My Stevia packets say 1g so I also count 1 carb for each. I've also seen some Stevia that is 2g per packet, so beware and always check when you buy a new brand of stevia.

Ouch! Thanks for the heads up. I am trying so hard not to become dependent on certain "must haves" but I am scared if I don't plan ahead for my trip to New York this week that I will screw up. Thanks
