I am Natasha - a 44 year old teacher who over this life style change is going to drop from her current size 32 to her ideal size 22. I am new to this forum and was very happy to discover that it is so vibrant!
As of yesterday I decided to go on a clean eating diet and in particular, removing all refined sugar from what I consume. While I want to remove sugar, I do want to be able to have the occasional sweet treat so I started to research sugar-free recipes only to see that they use s weetners like xylitol. This surprised me a lot as I thought they would have used honey..!
Anyway, my question is does anyone know if xylitol is a natural product? (it doesn't SOUND like it is!!) and have you used it? Do you know of any downsides?
