LadyM got me to look up Tru via. It is mostly made of erythritol, not stevia as people assume from Car gill's marketing and packaging. It also has natural flavorings Car gill won't divulge so no one can copy. Erythritol is not a bad thing (sugar alcohol made from corn or yeast, usually, and no known side effects). It's just that it is processed. So calling Tru via natural and having pretty green stevia leaves on the package is not exactly truth in advertising, and has gotten Car gill (and Coca cola) into some lawsuits, all settled-out-of-court. Zevia soft drinks have erythritol as 2nd ingredient and stevia as 4th - a little stevia, though, goes a long way, so when a product says sweetened with stevia that can be true even though there's not much.
I have fallen off the food-diary wagon. Stressed out and preoccupied.
However my weight this a.m. was only 1 pound over my low. I knew I hadn't really been blowing my eating, just not being faithful to the recording.
