I'm really struggling to find a decent realistic tasting sweetener that doesnt make my drinks or cereals taste naff. Ive coped with changing my milk to the 1% stuff but hate the sweeteners. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Cold turkey.
No need for sweeter or sugar in coffee/tea or cereal.

You will eventually lose the need for such sweet flavours, try chopping up some fruit over cereal instead of sugar.

When I had to give up milk ( I didn't take sugar in tea) I went for earl grey with a slice of lemon.

Now I drink fruit teas. I would balk if you expected me to drink tea with milk in and imnot a coffee drinker either.

Your tastes change. Change your drink , have a protein breakfast and see in a week just how your tastes change.

My doc says it takes 5 days for anything to leave your body. So give it a go.

Starting my 7 th week without sugar.

Years ago I ate cereal piled with sugar, two spoons in tea and coffee- it would make me gag now to drink anything so sweet. Dowser is right- your tastes can be changed, and you can help things along.

I'm another in agreement. I drank tea/coffee with 2 sugars and then sweetners for years. Then decided to go cold turkey.

I will admit that every cup I drank for about 10 days made me wonder why the hell i made it as it was vile, but then you do get used to it and there is no way I would go back now. Even 1 sugar now is yuck. it's quite strange how you can train your taste buds.

Slowly decrease the amount you put in or on your foods. Eventually you'll be free. It'll taste odd first but you'll get there.
