Let me know how that works for you!
Me either and I just finished 21 days. Maybe I am eating to much? I just don't know. Seems like I should have lost a pound! I was 42 pounds overweight so it's not like I am already a skinny freak or something.
It's true. I picked up to different stevia products side-by-side and one was stevia plant extract plus a preservative (no dextrose) the other was Erytherol!!
Thanks. I wonder if Whole Foods would sell the plants or dried leaves? That's a great idea growing the plant. I was thinking of planting some sugar cane and making my own liquid extract. Thanks! J
I am starting to find the entire site disappointing, especially the numerous grammatical errors on the pages. It tends to decrease overall credibility when someone cannot take a few minutes and proof the content before uploading it to the site. Makes one unsure if these are actual professionals in the trade and if I should be following their advice on health, nutrition, and lifestyle. Thanks for your sweeteners debunk. J
Unfortunately, no. Honey is a source of natural sugar. So, while it is an excellent choice any other time during ignite it is one of the products restricted. Just like sugar in the raw and brown sugar. Also great choices if you are eating sugar or looking for options to sweeten baked goods; but after ignite.
Yes. It does not contain any of the "sneaky ingredients" and infact several of the. Daily Burn Fuel shake recipes call for it in the recipe.
Stevia is a natural sweetener derived from a plant. It is okay to consume Stevia during ignite as far as sweeteners. However, consuming a very sweet product can trigger your brain to desire other sweet treats so it might be a good idea to limit your consumption to just that used in your protein powder and not any other raw stevia unless you drop a little in a glass of ice tea or coffee.
Again, looks like I am answering my own question. Pam has trace amounts of Soy Lectithin. Having said that it is OKAY to use it. Ignite wants no tofu, soybeans, or soy protein powder. The type soy product in Pam is an emulsifier and it is in such a small trace amount it can't interfere with ignite. Having said all that. It would be better to buy a mister device and put one of the healthy oils in it instead and coat your nonstick cookware with that prior to cooking.
So, it looks like I have to answer my own question. The answer is NO to Truvia and YES to Stevia. Turns out Truvia is a knock-off fake version of Stevia made with 99.99% Erytherol which is bad. It basically is an alcohol sugar which is accosiated with inflammation and poor digestion and potentially weight gain or difficulty in losing weight. The only reason Truvia can even be compared to Stevia is the presence of something called Rabidon which is a molecular subunit of Stevia; and who knows what "natural favors" are. So, I ate a teaspoon of Truvia in a cup of tea last night before I researched it because I saw a post saying both were okay but it just didn't seem right as it was SO sweet so I checked it out myself. Bummer. I am not restarting ignite though because. I am in day 6 and I don't feel any different this morning and it was 1 teaspoon. I am however buying Stevia today for any sweetener I might need from now on.
Are these considered okay during Ignite or no sugar type sweeteners at all?
I was looking to see if my Pam had alcohol, which it doesn't, but was surprised to see Soy! Is this soy the same as would be found in my supplements and thus not count as one of the evil six? Or can I not use this product during Ignite? Thanks!
