CaryF, I was curious why you said splenda was out. I know that there are natural benefits to honey use but not sure why the splenda is "out". I thought that splenda was real sugar but no calories. Also, I did some investigation into the hoodia issue. Seems that companies are using minute amounts of hoodia in their diet products and claiming people can lose weight. The real deal is that there are African tribes that chew 100% hoodia bark to curb appetite and gain energy while they are on long hunting trips. Our store bought hoodia diet suppresants don't have enough hoodia in them to help with dieting. Go figure..............they'll do anything for a buck right?
