You know I'm not really sure about this but I use a tiny bit of the vanilla stevia drops in my water. Makes it easier for me to get myself to drink water.

Page 72 of the MWL book says "Since a little sugar is allowed, there is no need to use saccharin, aspartame, or other artificial sweeteners." But stevia is a natural sweetener so I'm assuming it's OK - especially as it has fewer calories than sugar. I use a stevia/brown sugar blend on my oatmeal because it has the same taste as brown sugar but half as many calories. Maybe one day I'll get the point where I don't need to sweeten my oatmeal but I'm not there yet!

I believe it has been posted here that Stevia is on the table at the programs Dr. McDougall runs. I use it in my tea. I can put banana or frozen cherries in my oatmeal and not need any other sweetener.

I don't know about Stevia being "legal" but I just watched JeffN's Fast Food video and to sweeten his oatmeal he uses just a few raisins. For people on MWL dried fruit is not approved, but I am going to try and fudge this as the maple syrup I am using is not either. Overall, I am thinking the raisins are possibly a better option for me.
