I take a half a tea spoon for fear of the dangers of high sugar levels in the body

I use Splenda. I don't use sugar, because I am diabetic. I think Splenda tastes just like sugar. And, since I've cut down on sugar in my diet, I find I don't want it as much and things taste so sweet sometimes that I don't like them. There is so much sugar in foods we buy, though. So, we get lots of sugar that we don't realize.

I can undersdtand that myfanwy65, keep away from anything that compromises your health-recently a senior diabetic consultant in my country said just what you are saying that there is so much sugar in the foods we ordinarily take that we risk consuming sugars in excess of what we need. thanks for response

The awareness of the dangers of excess sugar intake in the family is good-am glad your family is this conscious. Thanks for the response men82in

i take two teaspoons of sugar in my coffee. I am in my middle age and hopefully nothing would go wrong at this early stage. I just have to maintain my water therapy everyday to enjoy what i am enjoying now.

I think the water therapy can combine well with sugar intake-thanks for the idea, I should increase my water glassses per day immediately

I never use sugar in my house, because I don't need it, cereals I have for breakfast already have sugar in them. For coffee I always have sweeteners, those little tablets you put in instead of sugar. I don't drink tea and for hot chocolate I find that sweet enough again you don't need to add sugar to it. Everything in moderation.
