And we tend to become addicted and desire what we should not/cannot have. Artificial sweeteners are more addicting than sugar.
Splenda is pure crap....your pancreas releases insulin because it's been beckoned to do so based on the intake of the "pretend sugar"..but there's no sugar to use.
If you're scared of sugar....be more scared of the future problems from insulin surges that your body isn't using.
Eventually, advertisements will read.. "This is your brain on sugar....this is your brain on Splenda". Huffing and puffing trying to find its fix of sugar/energy.
Reconsider..try honey, even sugar in the raw or do some research about
stevia or agave.
