Does anybody use this in their diet and had good
results with it? So much pros and cons on splenda.
Everything in moderation is probably okay.

Jelly is made from the sugary juice of the fruit. Simply fruit is more like a jam or preserves, containing chunks of fruit. Simply fruit doesn't have added sugar, which makes it a healthier option.
I like strawberry and blackberry. Yum.

You have to still count the carbs in the jelly and what ever you use with the jelly. Just because it says sugar free does not mean the item is totally free of sugar.

I had ten peices of bread with regular strawberry jam when my weight loss det led to violent sugar cravings. Before that I ate 6 chocolate covered granola bars. This morning I had 6 donuts for breakfast. I guess my slippiing into emotional and mental illness is causing me to once again throw in the towel on this diabetic regimen and pray for my own demise. I only hope I die before I go blind. Sweets and sugar are not an acquired taste. We are born with the need. I have a need for massive amounts of sweets and I cannot deny myself that just to avoid complications and live longer. Why live long when life will stink being on the restrictive diabetic regimen. I'm willing to die of a heart attack or stroke tommorrow and eat to my heart' content. I do smoke heavily and I'm not quitting. Why is living so important that diabetics, obesce people and smokers choose to suffer long and live long. My brother eats a fat and carbohydrate resricted diet and quibbles over every meal and dines out on the most boring food. The runs on a treadmill three times a week for 45 minutes. He power walks to the discount market to by weekly supply of raw carrots and canned tuna. What a life. He doesn't want to die. I don'ty care if I do. I live comfortably and short. he knocks himself out and does that longer.

There is a very helpful video on sugar addiction. Yes, addiction. It's like a drug and going cold turkey off it is hard and the withdraw is horrible. But if you can make it just today...and then tomorrow say just for might help. I have found that when I get off the carbs or sweets, I do better, but it just takes on bite to bring the house down again. Like asking an alcoholic to celebrate sobriety with a drink....there are just some things we should work extra hard to avoid if we know they are the chink in our armour.

Sorry, I very, very seldom have jelly or jams any more. I would compare the total carb counts per serving to a jar of regular jelly and make a decision based on that. As long as there wasn't any high fructose corn syrup in the ingredients. Maybe consider their jars of Spreadable Fruit. Less sugar and a bit more of a tart taste. I do have a partial jar of each in my fridge. They've been there for a couple of years. Might be time to dispose of them…hhmmmmmm.

Simply Fruit? It's great,Still have to count the carbs, there's just a hell of a lot less of them. Fruit does not need sugar on it.
