    I assume technically it is NOT clean.

    I do see some people here using it. Question: How much do you use on say an average day? Do you try to limit it?

    right now MAYBE a 1.5 cup/day. And that is way too much IMO.

    And your second question has been asnswered by that answer. :lol:

    It's found in a lot of the things I buy and consume.

    But straight Splenda? Probably less than 1/4 C.

    May I ask what y'all are using so much splenda in?
    I thought that at a certain point in contest prep, you usually pull the artificial sweetners?

    I have no coach. I'm winging it! :lol:

    My oats alone (1bowl) gets 1/4 cup. Most days I have oats and egg whites about 3 times b/c it's so easy to make. Other things like coffee, lemonade etc tend to getthat Splenda in take right up there.

    Dayum.

    I used to freak out about one diet soda or a couple of packets in my oatmeal. :lol:

    I use maybe 1 or 2 packets a day, plus whatever is in my soda, plus whatever is in my protein powder. Not that all of that is Splenda, but just artificial sweeteners in general.

    Although, now I'm out of Splenda. And I'm using Sweet N' Low in my coffee. I can already feel my genes mutating and an 11th toe forming. :eek:

    Why doesn't anyone use Stevia? It's supposed to be better for you.
    I only use what's in my PP the rest I just gag down unsweetened, u end up getting used to it :)

    :huh: I can't believe people using so much.

    I bought a box of it a long time ago but it's sitting in my cabinet collecting dust. I don't use any at all.
