I have been diabetic for over 5 years, 3 of those on insulin. I have tried a lot of the sweetners over the years and find that Splenda is still best for baking with and one called Truvia is my favorite for sweetening coffee/tea etc, it's made from stevia but I found that stevia from the health food store had a weird aftertaste and Truvia doesn't. The things that I cut out of my diet or really watch my portion sizes on are grains, fruits and starches...they are the quickest to spike your sugars. I do buy sugar free products at stores too, I know they aren't the best because of the artificial sweeteners, but especially after this surgery, some of the only things I can eat are sugar free jello and pudding.
