      If you used all that sugar, even if it's low fat, it will still go to the behind. Use sugar substitute but it moderation, make sure you get in some fibre too.

      agave nectar, honey or stevia are all naturally derived without chemical re-constitution or adulteration.

      Go ahead and use sugar then! Everyone has their own opinion and preference. Some people like Splenda, some like Stevia, some like honey, some like raw sugar, some like refined sugar!

      Yes, but those are extremely bad for you. Aspartame actually slows brain frequency, and it makes me extremely sick when i eat it =/

      You can always use a sugar substitute if you are worried about sugar content.

      Careful of the sugar content! Most fat-free items or low-fat items replace the fat with sugar, which turns into fat if its not burned off! most of these look good with the sugar, except the chocolate cupcakes and strawberry rubarb.

      i'm concitering making the Apple cobbler thankyou!!
