Like many of you who are following the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan or a low-glycemic or low-carb diet, the sweetener aspect of eating this way has been a bit tricky for me. And I do love sweet treats. ♥
When Trim Healthy Mama was originally written, the authors recommended NuNaturals Pure Stevia Extract as one of the best stevia products to use with their plan because of its purity and taste.
Unfortunately, in April 2013, NuNaturals changed the formulation of their Pure Stevia product. My family couldn't get used to the change in taste and level of bitterness...and we're not very fussy.
People can grow their own stevia plants, and dehydrate and grind up the leaves, but it will still have an unusual aftertaste that takes some time to get used to.
When the NuNaturals version of stevia was no longer an option my family could use, we chose to use several other stevia/erythritol options...but didn't really love any of them. If our bodies could have tolerated xylitol, we would have used that, too. We weren't too happy about using Truvia, because it's most likely made with GMO corn products, and it is highly processed. :(
Over the last year, we have anxiously been awaiting the new Trim Healthy Mama Stevia products. I'm very excited to let you know that these products are now available!
Pearl and Serene sent me some of their new sweeteners so I could give them a try.
THM Stevia sweeteners are available in three different varieties, for various uses:
How is THM Pure Stevia best used?
It contains a tiny "doonk" (spoon) to sprinkle very small amounts of stevia in your foods and beverages.
Based on my 15 months of experience in using stevia products, the THM Pure Stevia would best be used by adding it to beverages and anything needing sweetened but not needing the bulking action of sugar.
For example, I wouldn't use this as the only sweetener in most baked goods (cakes, cookies, etc.), but it could be used in combination with the other THM sweeteners (THM Erythritol or THM Sweet Blend) in baked goods.
When opening the bag of THM Pure Stevia, tap it on your counter a few times. Then, zip the seal before opening the bag, because the powder likes to "plume" a little when first opened. You’ll find a tiny spoon (1/32 of a tsp.) inside the pouch. This is your “doonk” spoon. When adding the powder to your drink or recipe with your doonk, turn spoon downward and gently tap it on the side of your glass or bowl as you empty it out. This will allow the stevia to flow out of the spoon.
Don’t put the doonk back in the pouch, as you’ll have to dig around in the white powder to find it. Find your doonk its own special home somewhere else in your kitchen. ☺
THM Erythritol can be used alone or combined with THM Pure Stevia in recipes. It provides the "bulking" action in recipes that need 1 cup of sweetener, for example, so the THM Erythritol is great for baking!
You can also combine THM Erythritol with THM Pure Stevia to make your own homemade "Truvia"; see directions on the chart below for the "Homemade Sweet Blend Recipe".
There are many stevia blends on the market, but unfortunately, the majority of them use fillers that won’t do your health or waistline any favors. Stevia that is blended with sugar, dextrose, fructose, or maltodextrin can raise your blood sugar and slow weight loss.
Stevia takes a while to get used to using, for most people. Keep in mind that if you have never used stevia extract or stevia products, there will be a period of adjustment to the taste...although the THM Stevia is far better tasting than anything else I've used so far!
For my own family, it took us 6-8 weeks to adjust to the taste of foods made with NuNaturals stevia so that we couldn't taste the "aftertaste" anymore. Even though the THM Stevia products taste wonderfully, you may possibly have an adjustment period where your body is adjusting away from using sugar as its sweetener source, and switching to using stevia and erythritol exclusively. This is normal.
Also, the THM (Trim Healthy Mama) Stevia sweeteners are definitely sweeter than other stevia products on the market, which is nice! You'll use less of it each time, saving you money in the long run.

4/2/2014 04:36:14 pm
I'm on my 3rd week of THM and down 8lbs. Loving it :)
4/2/2014 04:39:30 pm
I have been eating THM off and on for several months. A kitchen remodel threw me off.
4/2/2014 04:42:11 pm
I have not been following the plan, yet. I'm waiting for the book to become available from our library, again, so I can read through it and try a few more recipes. I have been trying some of the drinks and find those help with my sweets or munching cravings.
4/2/2014 04:42:27 pm
Been doing THM for 6 months- 50 lbs gone- I have been using TRUVIA and am very excited to start using the THM sweeteners!
4/3/2014 01:33:28 am
Congrats on your wonderful results, Kathy! I'm waiting one more week to order my sweeteners, and can't wait to get started using them!
4/2/2014 04:45:02 pm
8 months...just now it is getting easier to use stevia.....excited about the new product!

I have been following low-carb for 2 weeks! I need to read the book and get all in!
4/2/2014 04:48:32 pm
Just started :)
I've been following THM as well as possible for not quite 4 weeks. 3 lbs down, but I'm not sure how this week went, with a couple of cheat days. I'm off of sugar almost completely for the first time ever, and using Truvia for lots of things. I'm very excited to try the THM sweeteners.
4/2/2014 04:51:50 pm
Your post answered a lot of questions for me. Thank you! Can't wait to try these - better yet, win one!
4/2/2014 04:57:21 pm
I started 4 wks ago, but the first week I was taking a med that wouldn't let me lose weight and my doc changed it, 12 lbs down since. A lot to go.
4/2/2014 04:57:36 pm
Great review! Love the chart! I'm still trying to find budget friendly and yummy sugar replacements. It would be nice if they had samples to purchase.

4/2/2014 08:47:09 pm
I have been on thm since February 2nd and I have lost 11 pounds, love this way of eating and all the support from everyone
I've been doing THM for almost a year now. Well, to be perfectly honest, it's been off and on due to some major life changes, but I still got to goal weight and have been able to maintain by sticking to the plan as much as possible. I love it! And I would so love to win one of these sweeteners!
4/2/2014 09:11:46 pm
I can't wait to try these sweeteners:)

My two older daughters and I have been following the plan now since January. We have all felt better and have lost lbs and inches. Last night at church we had the once a month church meal. What was served was not on our plan but the ladies who were cooking it were on the THM journey as well and prepared an adjusted version of the meal just for us THMers:)
4/2/2014 09:24:31 pm

I've been trying to eat THM for lunch and dinner for a couple of weeks. My husband's deployed so I'm living with my parents with the kids, and not cooking most nights. We're going back home in a couple of weeks, and I'm planning on jumping in with both fetes when I'm back in my own kitchen.
4/2/2014 10:01:20 pm
I am just getting started, trying to take in all the basics.

4/2/2014 10:06:08 pm

I bought the THM Book for myself at Christmas and read it from cover to cover. I have been doing mostly breakfast, snacks and lunches b/c my family not on board. I have tried a few dinners and several sides with my family and some were a go and others not. I love the fb page and all the great sites there are with THM tips and recipes. So I will plod on and learning more everyday :)
4/2/2014 10:40:16 pm
I started following thm loosely in February, and have a hard time finding items in my small town, so I'm really excited to get my hands on the new thm sweeteners!
4/2/2014 10:45:10 pm
I love how THM has changed my life! I reached my 1st goal yesterday! 20 lbs in 91/2 wks! Thank you for a sweet giveaway!
4/2/2014 10:49:29 pm

4/2/2014 10:53:41 pm
I started trying a THM lifestyle last summer. It was going well, then I was whammied with adrenal and thyroid issues. Even though I knew that THM would be one of the best ways for me to help myself, I didn't have the energy to cook anything. Then I got hit with a flare from my interstitial cystitis and even the old formula of NuNaturals would bother me. I got a 1 oz. package of THM stevia and tried some yesterday for the first time. Just a doonk. And it didn't bother me! So now I'm really anxious to get back to the THM lifestyle. I can't wait! I'm heading out to the store this afternoon to replenish my THM stock and get moving on this! This stevia is SO good! BETTER than the old NuNaturals!
4/2/2014 10:54:32 pm
Would love to win THM sweeteners! Been on plan for 11 months and love eating this way!
4/2/2014 10:55:05 pm
I started the week before Thanksgiving, Nov 19th maybe? and have lost a little over 30lbs and about 32 inches
4/2/2014 10:57:39 pm
I've been doing thm for 9 months and have lost 60 lbs! :) I just love it and really want to try their sweeteners. :)
4/2/2014 10:57:54 pm
I have only been following the THM lifestyle a few weeks. I really enjoy all of the food I have been eating. I am hoping this new sweetener will improve my dessert choices!
4/2/2014 10:59:40 pm

I started on Monday and already feel better!
4/2/2014 11:05:09 pm
I've been (loosely) doing THM since last August, lost 5 pounds. I don't have much to lose, so it's okay, I mostly am doing it to help my husband lose some weight. He needs to lose 30-40 lbs but is very sensitive to artificial sweeteners, so I've been trying to find the best natural sweetener that he would like. I'm hoping THM's sweetener will do the trick!
4/2/2014 11:06:43 pm
I've eating THM on and off since last June, and I love it! I'm back to being on plan consistently now and it is helping me in so many ways. :)
4/2/2014 11:08:20 pm
I have been following since last September, although I slacked off quite a bit when I first got pregnant but am back on track now!
4/2/2014 11:10:41 pm
My girls and I all need to lose some weight, and I'm starting THM to see if we can get healthier. Sweeteners would sure help!
4/2/2014 11:11:46 pm
Been loosely following THM for 4 mo, lost 20 pounds. Kinda stuck right now so maybe if I could handle the recommended sweeteners I could lose the 35 more that I need to!
4/2/2014 11:12:11 pm
Would love to win a sweetener!
4/2/2014 11:14:50 pm
Love love THM. Been on plan since June '13
4/2/2014 11:15:59 pm
I am just (officially after a trial run with a few mistakes) getting started after having *thoroughly* studying the book. This is a life-changer for me and my family. I want to feel like it's more than Serene's and Pearl's message...it's mine too.
4/2/2014 11:16:34 pm
I have been on plan for almost a year (April 7th will be 1 year)! I have lost over 40# while bf my little guy that just turned a year old on March 9th!!! So many wonderful recipes and so many wonderful ladies I have met on this journey! Many blessings to you all!!! ;)

I just started following THM and I'm already enjoying so many of the recipes but can't wait to try the THM sweeteners.
4/2/2014 11:35:37 pm
I've been using the THM plan for 8 months. It has been a blessing to me!!

4/2/2014 11:41:47 pm
Thanks so much for the great posts. I've been trying a lot of things here and there with THM - just trying to get it down pat and hoping to try the new sweetners.
4/2/2014 11:42:52 pm
I've been eating THM style for 3 months and I love it. I am so blessed to have heard about this from my niece and I actually read through the book and decided that was it. I haven't had one "cheat meal", on purpose anyway. Because of my age, I am assuming, I am losing very slowly, but that's okay, I will take as long as needed because I am in this for a lifetime.
4/2/2014 11:43:05 pm
I followed THM strictly most of last year, but this year I am struggling to stick with it.
4/2/2014 11:49:51 pm

4/2/2014 11:55:03 pm
I've been on THM since August of last year. So far I've lost 27 pounds and gone from a 26 to a 22! Woo hoo. My hubby has lost roughly the same amount and my 18 yo daughter as well. It's a family affair. :-)
4/2/2014 11:56:27 pm
I started THM in May of 2013. List 26 pounds so far and almost 30 to go. :) I will get there...enjoying this lifestyle.
4/2/2014 11:57:27 pm
I'm excited to try these…just waiting for my current bottle of the original KAL brand to run out.
4/2/2014 11:58:59 pm
I love feeding our family of six THM-style! Thank you for the great article!
4/2/2014 11:59:01 pm
What a wonderful giveaway. I started THM in February of this year. Still learning and enjoying my journey. I am a THM turtle. I was already off of sugar for years. Now learning how to combine my foods and making sure that I eat my snacks.

4/3/2014 12:59:20 am
I got the THM book in February and have been "devouring" all the new information since then! I have been trying to follow the guidelines for a couple of weeks now and have already felt a HUGE difference how I feel! Thanks, Pearl and Serene! :)
4/3/2014 12:59:52 am

Thank you!! Love THM!
4/3/2014 01:03:11 am
I loosely followed THM during my pregnancy, and then until my baby was 6 months old. For about the last month, I have been fully on plan.
4/3/2014 01:03:26 am
Would love to win! :)
4/3/2014 01:03:52 am
I've been working on THM for about a month now! Before that, I was doing the dr recommendations for Heart Disease eating :)
4/3/2014 01:04:02 am
I've bought my THM book last summer! I've been following it most of the time, but find myself "falling" off the bandwagon over the holidays and vacations. I tend to do more S meals than E meals, though. They satisfy me more, and I also have to eat a gluten free/mostly grain free diet which makes E meals very difficult. I can't give you an exact amount of months that I've been using it, but since last summer.
4/3/2014 01:04:18 am
I'm just getting started and ordered the book today!!
4/3/2014 01:04:22 am
I am just starting and waiting for my book!! This would be amazing to win!!
4/3/2014 01:04:22 am
Thanks for the review!
4/3/2014 01:04:56 am
I have been following THM for 3 great months now! Can't wait to try their new sweeteners!
4/3/2014 01:05:23 am
I would love to try these - very new to program, but love what I am learning in the book!
4/3/2014 01:05:41 am
Sounds great!! Helpful info, thank you for posting!! Can't wait to order.
4/3/2014 01:05:43 am
Still reading the book, but can't wait to get started! Love the information explaining the Erythritol, as I've never used it before. =)
4/3/2014 01:06:06 am
I've been following THM since the end of December! I love it :) I've lost 14 pounds so far!
4/3/2014 01:06:50 am
Have enjoyed the sweet blend so far.
4/3/2014 01:06:58 am
My THM book is expected tomorrow, so I will be starting next week after I go grocery shopping. I am so excited!
4/3/2014 01:07:24 am
I would love a free sample. I bought a bag and it is really good. Mine did not have a "doonker" and I wish it would have had a conversion chart on the bag. I don't use it much bc it cost so much more than Truvia. But it does taste really good.
Michelle, if you bought your pure stevia extract from THM, it should have had a "doonk" (tiny 1/32 spoon in it). If it didn't, I'd contact them to see if you can get one sent to you, or see what they would suggest. You can also place your THM Pure Stevia Extract in a parmesan cheese shaker or other types of shakers, and it does work pretty well with that. I'll be sharing more about that in a day or two here. Actually, your idea of having the conversion chart on the bag itself is a really great idea. I'll try to pass that idea on to Pearl and Serene - that's great feedback. It may be too large to squeeze onto the bag, but maybe they could mention the chart on the back of the bag and let people know it's available on their website at some point in the future. Actually, I don't think that the THM Sweet Blend costs much more than Truvia. It is a lot sweeter than Truvia, which means that you'll need less of it per recipe than you did with Truvia, and that will also save you money. Where I live, a small container of Truvia is around or over $6, and the THM Sweet Blend is $10 for 1 lb., so I think that's pretty comparable.
4/3/2014 01:07:48 am
I am on my fourth week of THM and down 6lbs. I love the new THM sweetener! It is so much better than the other stuff I was using. :-)
4/3/2014 01:08:03 am
This blog has been so helpful. I've been looking at the new sweeteners and couldn't figure out what the difference of use would be. This helps so much. Thank You!
4/3/2014 01:09:05 am
I have been loosely following THM for about 10 months. I have lost 20 lbs.
4/3/2014 01:09:29 am

I just finished the book yesterday so I'm on day 1. I have about 50 lbs to loose!
4/3/2014 01:13:29 am
Thanks for sharing all this info. It's going to make my own THM journey much easier as I convert family favorite recipes to "on plan."
4/3/2014 01:13:37 am
13 months and loving every minute of it.
4/3/2014 01:14:04 am
Just started THM. But love the program and lifestyle.
4/3/2014 01:14:32 am

I'm struggling on this journey but it makes so much sense to me.!!
4/3/2014 01:16:02 am
I have been living the THM lifestyle for about 13 months, and I love it. I would still like to get down a few more pounds.
4/3/2014 01:16:26 am
I have been THM for 3 months and have not bought anything other then truvia. I want to try this. Can't wait to buy some.
4/3/2014 01:16:40 am
I would love to win!
4/3/2014 01:16:49 am
I've been eating the THM way since July and love it. My biggest struggle has been with the sweeteners though. So far every type of stevia I've tried tastes absolutely horrible to me, even the tiniest amount. Erythritol though, has been my saving grace. I can't afford to try the THM brand of stevia but I would dearly like to. Thank you for the review and the chart.
4/3/2014 01:17:56 am
I've been doing THM since Christmas - love the results!
4/3/2014 01:18:03 am
I have been loosely following since June 2013.
4/3/2014 01:18:20 am
I just started back up 3 weeks ago.
4/3/2014 01:18:36 am
I was beginning to eat THM (I called it 'easing into THM') for about 4 weeks before I learned I was pregnant. That kind of threw me off-plan. :-) I'm trying to ease back into it now.
4/3/2014 01:18:48 am
Thanks for the review and conversion chart! I haven't been able to afford buying the THM sweeteners yet, so I would love to win them! :)
4/3/2014 01:21:18 am
I started THM mid-January and have lost 30 lbs. so far. :)
4/3/2014 01:18:50 am
I have been on the THM plan for about 4 weeks now and I'm close to losing my first 5 pounds! :)
4/3/2014 01:18:59 am
Would love to win this. I'm just trying to get started and did not like the taste of the other brand I had tried.
4/3/2014 01:20:21 am
Thank you for posting the conversion table. That is so helpful!
4/3/2014 01:20:41 am
I can NOT wait to try them!!
4/3/2014 01:20:45 am
I have been looking for a sane way to eat for years. I have several intolerances and your approach finally incorporated them all with a yummy approach. This is the first approach my kids can follow also!
4/3/2014 01:21:34 am
I followed THM for a while last year, but after a while I stopped being so careful. I'd like to get back to a healthier eating style again.
4/3/2014 01:21:54 am
I started in Jan. of 2013. Love it!
4/3/2014 01:22:10 am
Started THM after Christmas. Down 27lbs!

Awesome giveaway, thank you!

4/3/2014 01:23:07 am
I've been following THM since August '13. I've lost 40 lbs. and feel great! I can't wait to try the new sweeteners.
4/3/2014 01:24:18 am
I started THM in November but was off plan over holidays, etc. But love the plan and have lost 20 pounds!
4/3/2014 01:24:37 am
I have been doing THM since May 2013 (with a break from Christmas 2013 until now, April 2014. I've lost 43 pounds. Didn't gain any back during my off plan time, but haven't lost anymore and I still have more to lose! Gotta get back to health!
4/3/2014 01:25:03 am
Great Site! I enjoyed this post a lot!
4/3/2014 01:25:11 am
I would love to have some... I am still trying to find a stevia that my husband will use.
4/3/2014 01:25:51 am
I am really looking forward to seeing if the THM sweeteners will taste better in my coffee. I have reverted to a French Vanilla Splenda sweetener because the products I've found in the stores always leave a bitter taste. Would LOVE to win one!
4/3/2014 01:26:03 am
On my journey to healthy living.
4/3/2014 01:26:22 am
I have been following THM diligently since the beginning of the year, and am down almost 25 lbs! I love the plan! But like many I've struggled with the sweeteners. I am very excited about this new line!
4/3/2014 01:27:01 am
I would love to try the THM sweetener. So far I haven't like any stevia I've tried.
4/3/2014 01:27:16 am
I have been THMing it off and on for about six months. Thanks for the giveaway!
4/3/2014 01:27:27 am
I have been eating this way and reading a lot about it for a year. But I just started to strictly follow this plan for 6 wks. I have lost 6# in the last 6 wks. :)
4/3/2014 01:28:15 am
Been on plan since August 2014....just got my "Blend" in the mail yesterday and can't wait to incorporate into what we eat!
4/3/2014 01:28:39 am
I've had the book since June 2013, but have had trouble sticking to it. Now that I've hit the second trimester, it should be easier to get back on plan. I usually develop an aversion to sugar after the morning sickness passes. :-)
4/3/2014 01:29:15 am
I've been doing THM for a month now!
4/3/2014 01:30:54 am
Thanks for the giveaway. I have the THM book and would love the sweetener!
4/3/2014 01:30:59 am
I am anxious to try these alternative sweeteners.
4/3/2014 01:31:15 am
I've had the book since Thanksgiving, but have not fully implemented it. I have KAL (old kind without additives) and it is okay, but I'd like to try THM's brand.
4/3/2014 01:31:34 am
I have been doing this the beginning of the year, can't wait to try the new sweeteners.
4/3/2014 01:31:58 am

4/3/2014 01:36:07 am
I tried THM for 2 weeks and I lost 8 lbs. I found out I needed surgery and went back to my old unhealthy way of eating.Yesyerday I had the surgery. I am the only one on the THM plan so in am eating what everyone else in the family eats. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to prepair my own food and get back on track with the THM style of eating.
4/3/2014 01:36:46 am
I have been doing THM for 6 months as of April 11th! Down 64 pounds!
4/3/2014 01:37:41 am
I have been doing THM since 1/2013. I admit, however, I don't always stick 100% to plan, although it is my goal. I can't wait to try the new THM blend...for now I use Truvia and my own erythritol,stevia blend.
4/3/2014 01:38:37 am
I just started on the THM journey two weeks ago. I'm still trying to get the hang of it and figure things out, but I'm looking forward to seeing those pounds disappear!
4/3/2014 01:39:30 am
I would love to win! Excited to try the new sweeteners... Thank you!

4/3/2014 01:42:58 am
I have eaten GF for over 3 years and have been converting over to THM for the past few weeks.
4/3/2014 01:43:46 am
I was so excited when I got my sweet blend. I was even more excited when the donuts I made tasted AMAZING. No after taste, no "chasing" with a beverage. Amazing. Pure awesomeness. Thank you so much!

4/3/2014 01:44:14 am

4/3/2014 01:45:51 am
I started THM in August 2013.
4/3/2014 01:49:21 am
I have had the book for a while and have implemented some things but hoping to follow from here on out!
4/3/2014 01:50:08 am
Been on THM for over a year. Love it!! Would love to try the new sweeteners, Thanks for the chance.
4/3/2014 01:50:22 am
Thanks for the explanation!
4/3/2014 01:50:38 am
My hubby and I have done THM a couple of times now and fallen off the wagon for a bit in between, but have been sticking to it pretty well for the past month again. I am 9 weeks pg and LOVING it!
4/3/2014 01:50:44 am
I really want to try this in my son's drinks. He's totally hooked on sugar!
I have the book and am learning, but haven't dived in fully yet. One of the hangups for me was the sweetener confusion (just a lot to wrap my brain around), so I am so excited that Pearl and Serena are offering these wonderful THM sweeteners. Cannot wait to try them!
4/3/2014 01:52:12 am
I started THM in February of 2013
4/3/2014 01:52:42 am
Can't wait to try them all :)

I have been on the plan since 2/18/14. My poor husband has reluctantly followed along with me. I am enjoying feeling better, getting slimmer and learning new foods.
4/3/2014 01:53:54 am
Would love to try one of these as I am just getting started!! :)
4/3/2014 01:53:54 am
I've been following THM about 50% since January. I've mostly been learning, gathering supplies slowly (very limited budget), and trying recipes to see what I like and what my hubby enjoys :-) We've both lost a small amount of weight, but nothing significant yet. I'm super excited for the new sweeteners and can't wait to try them! Next paycheck...;-)
4/3/2014 01:54:56 am
I'm wanting to start THM! I've been easing into it. :)
4/3/2014 01:55:52 am
Just a few weeks, adding more ideas every few days. Hope to be following 100% real soon!
4/3/2014 01:57:32 am
I am at the very beginning stages of looking into THM, but have previously done low carb eating and had success. The more I learn about THM, though, the more I am intrigued!

I have tried using KAL brand of stevia and can't get passed the after taste. I am seriously considering buying THM brand sweeteners to give them a try.

I am a huge fan of THM and am excited to find a blogger that uses it! Can't wait to continue to read your posts!

4/3/2014 02:08:37 am
Wonderful how you put all this information together! Been learning this way of THM since July!
4/3/2014 02:08:58 am
I could use a boost, and this could be a great way

4/3/2014 02:12:08 am
Forgot to say that I've been doing THM since August, 2013 :)
4/3/2014 02:12:07 am
I've been "sampling" many different eating plans for the past 9 yrs. and am so excited to find how easy THM was to incorporate into my current eating style! I've been struggling for the past few yrs. to get my weight back down to what I was comfortable with but thanks to college, starting my new job etc. my weight was constantly bouncing up & down and I couldn't lose it! Well, thanks to THM and SKINNY CHOCOLATE my weight is almost down to my goal weight and all I did was rearrange my eating habits (withou
4/3/2014 02:14:58 am
lol my computer is acting up and it just entered my post without letting me finish it.....grr! Anyways, I just wanted to finish my statement with the wonderful fact that I was able to lose the weight without any hunger and my energy continues to soar!!! Woo-hoo! Looking forward to trying the new sweeteners from THM.....God bless!
4/3/2014 02:12:12 am
Would love to win some of this!!!!
4/3/2014 02:13:54 am
Whoops...got ahead of myself! I have been doing THM for a year now and am 10lbs. away from goal weight! My RA is gone and my energy is back!!
4/3/2014 02:13:10 am
Such a great idea! Love the THM lifestyle (:
4/3/2014 02:13:12 am
I've been following the THM plan for 12 days and have already dropped a couple of pounds and started to deflate the spare tire around my middle. Better yet, I'm loving and eating food like I was 9-years-old again (which was the last time I could eat all I want without gaining weight)! I have only tried a couple recipes with stevia--definitely an acquired taste, but I'm getting it.
4/3/2014 02:13:58 am
My husband and I started THM 1 week ago and we have each lost 2 lbs.
4/3/2014 02:14:25 am
I have been doing THM since the first part of January ... love all the recipes and variations people make to them.
4/3/2014 02:15:14 am
Great way to enjoy the new THM sweeteners. Thank you for the chance.
4/3/2014 02:16:48 am
I have lost 50 pounds and at my goal weight, but I am struggling with maintaining my weight. I enjoy reading your posts : )
4/3/2014 02:17:15 am
I've been following the plan for a week now - and I'm down 4 lbs!
4/3/2014 02:18:16 am
I've been on and off for four months
4/3/2014 02:20:14 am
I started THM last June (2013) and I've lost 69 pounds since starting. I still have a long ways to go, but I know that I can stick w/ THM for life!!! I simply love it and I tell everyone I know about my lifestyle change. God is so good!!! Pearl & Serene have given me my life back!!!! :)
4/3/2014 02:21:09 am
Would love to try it :)
4/3/2014 02:22:35 am
Thm since July 2013. Thrilled with the amazing g/f additions to my recipe arsenal!
4/3/2014 02:23:07 am
4/3/2014 02:23:42 am
I started THM 8 weeks ago. I'm down 23.8 lbs with 30 more to reach my goal.
4/3/2014 02:24:29 am
I've known about THM for a year now but only dabbled when I quickly discovered my pregnancy. Now having just had a baby, I'm ready to jump in, but he is sensitive to dairy. I am so sad I can't try so many yummy looking recipes and I'm trying to get started anyway.
4/3/2014 02:25:23 am
I think that THM is a great way to really see results in health and weight. I really want to start THM and this would be a great addition to that!
4/3/2014 02:26:55 am
I just got the book last month and am slowly learning and really need this product! I do love the Shrinker and Frappa's! Starting slow right now.
4/3/2014 02:31:54 am
I have been on/off plan for 6 months now..but the last 30 days have been strictly sugar free in all my foods- love using stevia for a substitute!
4/3/2014 02:34:27 am
I'm pregnant and have been loosely following a couple weeks. Still learning.
4/3/2014 02:36:22 am
4/3/2014 02:36:45 am
I've been doing THM for about three weeks. I've lost 9 pounds and notice curves coming back and I'm more slender.
4/3/2014 02:37:08 am
Thanks for the thorough review! I'm using up what I have and will then be ordering THM sweeteners. Looking forward to it!
4/3/2014 02:38:03 am
I've been trying to follow THM for awhile. I started and found out right away I was pregnant. Nausea and other health problems with some of my other kiddos kept me from really getting into it but I attempted what I knew and had my healthiest weight gain of 6 pregnancies. Following more closely now and results have been good. About 11 pounds down. I'm looking forward to trying the new sweetner.
4/3/2014 02:39:53 am
I appreciate the info on the different sweeteners. It is very helpful. I have been following THM for a year and I am still learning what sweeteners I like best for different recipes.
4/3/2014 02:43:28 am
I've been doing THM for a little over a year. Want to try this stevia!!
4/3/2014 02:44:25 am
I have been following THM loosely since Aug 2013 and am currently 6 months into my first THM pregnancy.
4/3/2014 02:45:12 am
I started following in Jan 2013. It's been slow going for me, but I'm celebrating the fact that I'm down almost 30lbs and keeping it off.
4/3/2014 02:47:22 am
Would sure be a blessing to try!
4/3/2014 02:47:58 am
Thank you for this information. I have been confused about the sweeteners, but not anymore:)
4/3/2014 02:50:16 am
I have been THM'ing for 4 months
4/3/2014 02:51:00 am
I have been doing THM for about 9 months. Lost 6 lbs and now just maintaining. For me, it's more about being healthy.
4/3/2014 02:51:49 am
following about 5 weeks now and loving it!
4/3/2014 02:52:10 am
I started around Easter of last year!
4/3/2014 02:52:37 am
I'm just starting with THM this week and hope it will bring me new energy healt and lots of joy :-)
4/3/2014 02:53:56 am
I've been on THM, along with my husband, for about two months. I'll loving the THM sweeteners...thank you!
4/3/2014 02:54:36 am
I have been reading the book for a week or so now , trying recipes and trying to figure out how to use the sweetners and other ingredients I was not familiar with. Would love to try your new products, they are getting wonderful reviews from others who have tried them.
4/3/2014 02:54:46 am
I've been following THM since July 27th!
4/3/2014 02:56:03 am
Definitely interested in trying the THM version.
4/3/2014 02:56:20 am
I ate low-carb during the summer and saw good results but didn't feel it was sustainable. Bought Trim Healthy Mama before Christmas and have played at it here and there since then.
4/3/2014 02:56:51 am
I started changing my eating habits with THM in June 2013. :-)
4/3/2014 02:59:41 am
Whew! That's a lot of comments to scroll past to be able leave my own comment! Lol! Been thm-ing a few months....slow but steady, seems like a lot of work for such slow progress but.... thank for blog and giveaway!
4/3/2014 03:00:44 am
I've been on for a yr. love it!
4/3/2014 03:00:47 am
I've been doing THM for 5 months. I lost those last 10lbs that I never thought I'd loose. Love it!
4/3/2014 03:02:33 am
Love all the help! Thanks!
4/3/2014 03:04:43 am
I've been on the THM plan for 1 month and been gluten-free for about 4 years. Its done me a world of good!
4/3/2014 03:05:01 am
I tried THM before the holidays, but just restarted yesterday. One of my biggest problems with my family's support is they HATE the stevia. I was unaware the Nunaturals had changed, I couldn't understand why it was so highly recommended.
4/3/2014 03:05:21 am
Did Palo for 2 yrs, and have been doing THM for 2 days!
4/3/2014 03:07:28 am
I just discovered THM! Looking forward to trying this all out!
4/3/2014 03:07:49 am
THM is a blessing. I have been eating like a THM for a year! Wow! I have seen results, even with a pregnancy (#9) in the midst of it.
4/3/2014 03:08:22 am
We haven't tried THM, but my husband has been using stevia for years and wants to try these new blends!
4/3/2014 03:08:23 am
Have been on THM for about one month. I have IBS and it has been such a huge help in changing how I feel. I feel amazing and have lost about 5lbs!!
4/3/2014 03:08:29 am
I have been following THM facebook page for about a month now and just found your website. I have felt so much better with cleaner eating. I am excited to try your new blend.
4/3/2014 03:09:03 am
I have been following the THM guidelines but not strictly. I did initially though and immediately lost 8 pounds. Wanting to get the new THM stevia with hopes that it will taste better. Excited to try it!
4/3/2014 03:09:07 am
Just started reading the book the other day, but excited to learn more.
4/3/2014 03:09:57 am
4/3/2014 03:12:16 am
I've been doing THM faithfully since the last week of January 2014. I have lost 22# thus far and people at church are noticing. Also my husband of course. Everyone wants to know what I'm doing and the door is open to talk about THM. Currently there are 3 others eating healthier with me that are not part of my family:)
4/3/2014 03:13:11 am
Thank you for your posts! I've really enjoyed finding recipes and insights on you blog!

4/3/2014 05:39:12 am
I am just getting going with THM...following Gwen's Nest on starting with just breakfast and snacks as I figure it all out :-)
4/3/2014 03:18:30 am
Slowly been dipping into this lifestyle and making changes! All in for two weeks
4/3/2014 03:18:30 am
I've been wading through the THM book and trying recipes for 1 week, still a little overwhelming but I'm in it for the long hall. Tired of being overweight.
4/3/2014 03:19:25 am
I read the book a year ago and have started up a few times but have not been consistent. It's time to make it real!
4/3/2014 03:26:59 am
I have been following THM for about a year - although off and on - lost 25 pounds so far.
4/3/2014 03:27:27 am
I've been eating less sugar and total carbs at meals since being diagnoses with gestational diabetes in Feb.
4/3/2014 03:28:01 am
I've been following THM for almost a year! I've lost almost 50 lbs. It's the best eating plan I have ever been on and I will always eat this way. I'm so excited about the new stevia. I've been using KAL which is not bad but NuNaturals was the bomb! Can't wait to try the THM brand!
4/3/2014 03:31:31 am
This giveaway would be a help in trying healthier baking.
4/3/2014 03:31:49 am

4/3/2014 03:39:45 am
I've been following THM off and on for about 8 months.
4/3/2014 03:40:51 am
I've been back on THM for only a few weeks now; I'm 23 weeks pregnant and decided I needed to start controlling my diet (and weight gain) again!
4/3/2014 03:41:35 am
I just signed up for your email! Im excited about your blog!!
4/3/2014 03:44:22 am

4/3/2014 03:48:57 am
I've been dabbling in THM for about two months and am now realizing it's the only thing that works for me. Would love to try some sweeteners!!!!!! Thanks!
4/3/2014 03:49:01 am
I have been following a low-carb lifestyle on and off since I was 14 years old. My body has always reacted very positively to eliminating carbs out of my diet! After getting married I've become more interested in other eating lifestyles and discovered THM. I love it!!
4/3/2014 03:51:07 am
I've been on THM since November 2013 and have lost 10 pounds and multiple inches. I love it and don't ever want to go back to the old way of eating. I hope I win the THM Stevia contest! :)
4/3/2014 03:51:34 am
Can't wait to try the THM sweet blend! Hoping for 2nd place!
4/3/2014 03:51:47 am
I started THM in Nov 2013. I'm down 15 lbs and 7 inches off my waist. I would love to try the THM sweeteners as I haven't found a stevia that doesn't give me a headache yet.
4/3/2014 03:54:01 am
Hi I I am not very good at THM I have been doing it off and on for about 6 months but have a lot of trouble with the recipes and I just do my own thing and I always end up with a crossover I'm really looking for a sweetener that will make the recipes taste better.
4/3/2014 03:55:50 am
We just started this diet! Enjoying it so far, but the stevia blend would be helpful!
4/3/2014 03:56:20 am
Just started yesterday.
4/3/2014 03:57:19 am
I can't wait to try the new THM sweeteners!
4/3/2014 03:57:41 am
Excellent post! Very helpful! I've been doing THM since June 2013. I've tried several sweeteners and learned which ones I like best, depending what I'm using them for. Looking forward to trying the THM sweeteners when I finish the ones I currently have.
4/3/2014 03:58:59 am
Great info! Thanks
4/3/2014 03:59:59 am
Mid June will be 1 year! Had a roller coaster journey through a pregnancy and loss, but it has been easy to get back to it. Lost 50 pounds before Christmas and through all the rest I am only 15 pounds worse off from there. Onward and upward (or downward as I should say! lol).
4/3/2014 04:01:16 am
4/3/2014 04:03:52 am
Would love to try the THM sweeteners!

I have started the THM lifestyle since October, 2013. I have lost about 22 pounds now and will be starting the Fuel Cycle on April 6th. Totally love this lifestyle change.

4/3/2014 04:47:07 am
Yes please. Just starting and every little bit helps!
4/3/2014 04:50:06 am
I am doing THM! I got the book over a year ago and I've dabbled a little, but have been doing it exclusively the last 3 1/2 weeks. I'm starting to get the hang of it, but I think I am definitely gonna be a turtle. :-)
4/3/2014 04:50:17 am
I have been reading the book and gradually changing my eating habits for over a month. This week is my first full on plan week!
4/3/2014 04:51:39 am
I did THM for about 2 months last year, and then I've been on it this year since mid February. Love it!!
4/3/2014 04:52:24 am
I have been following THM for about 15 months. I have also been gluten free for 2 years, sugar free for 5 years and low carb for about a decade.

Looking forward to trying these... I started THM and lost 15 lbs. before becoming pregnant with my 8th. Trying to get over morning sickness now so I can get back on THM pregnancy recommendations...
4/3/2014 05:06:39 am
I started THM 7 weeks ago and am never turning back! Can't wait to order some THM Sweetener!! :)
4/3/2014 05:12:35 am

I've been following THM since February 2013... been gluten free for almost five year and currently, dairy and nut free.
4/3/2014 05:20:03 am
Thank you so much for this wonderful info. I am just starting THM.
4/3/2014 05:21:48 am
I've been doing THM off & on for 8 months. Even with LOTS of cheats I've lost nearly 30 lbs & am getting close to my goal. I am super excited to try the new THM stevia!!
4/3/2014 05:22:14 am
I have been following THM since June '13 & loving it!
4/3/2014 05:23:51 am
I've been on THM since August and feeling great. 35 lbs down
4/3/2014 05:28:31 am
I received the book for Christmas 2012. I did not start following the plan until May 2013. Lost the weight and maintaining and enjoying this way of eating!
4/3/2014 05:28:43 am
I've been THMing for two months and have lost 25lbs. I still have a lot more to loose. But, for me, more amazing is that I am finding freedom for the food bondage that has tormented me most of my life! It's been an answer to prayer for me!
4/3/2014 05:39:11 am
Our whole family is 2 weeks into our gluten, sugar and caffeine free journey! (and some of us may have to eliminate or reduce dairy even more). By THM book should be Monday! After the first week of withdrawals and mood swings/cravings, feeling so good, sleeping 8 hrs, not nauseous after each meal anymore. Praying it will get better and better and when I'm healthier the weight will start to come off (only have 15-20lbs to lose, but for 34 many health/hormone issues I thought were just "my normal"). so thankful...
4/3/2014 05:39:23 am
I have been on THM almost a yr and have lost over 50 lb. Close to Goal!
4/3/2014 05:40:48 am
THM saved my mind! So much to say...but I was in serious denial. I began last year right before my son's wedding...wish I had weighed in. After 32 years of marriage I weigh 10 lbs lighter than my wedding day. I finally feel like me.
4/3/2014 05:45:48 am
Just starting my journey...and love me some sweets...i am sure these will become my new bffs!
4/3/2014 05:48:55 am

I started THM in October 2014 and have lost 28lbs so far! I love it. There is great freedom in it, I don't feel deprived or restricted!
4/3/2014 06:13:37 am
I started THM Jan 2013. I lost 25 lbs. in 6 mths, currently I have about 5 more lbs I'd like to lose. I would LOVE to try the new sweeteners from THM!!
4/3/2014 06:14:36 am
I've been trying to follow THM for 18 months.
4/3/2014 06:21:51 am
I've been waiting patiently for THM to make their own stevia product. Thanks for the review; can't wait to try it!

I started following the THM plan in January of this year. I am 32 weeks pregnant, and have been so encouraged by how it has helped me regulate my weight, blood sugar, and old pressure!
4/3/2014 06:26:27 am
I have been following THM for 5 weeks.
4/3/2014 06:26:38 am

4/3/2014 06:35:15 am
Good info. Thanks! (Is that all it takes to enter the giveaway?)
4/3/2014 06:38:06 am
I've been eating THM for a few months...I'm not super strict though. I need to work on that. :/
4/3/2014 06:40:02 am
Have just started THM - 3 weeks ago. Have been on and off with Medifast for past 5 years. Initially lost 60 pounds to goal weight but have really struggled to keep it off and have had multiple health problems as a result of prolonged low carb, low fat, low calorie diet. Found THM and am LOVING it!!!! 11 pounds down and 20 to go!
4/3/2014 06:41:26 am
Just started the plan and I would love to try this.
4/3/2014 06:42:37 am
I've just started eating the THM way. So excited to find a plan to cut carbs, gluten, sugar and add superfoods that I need to be eating. Pearl and Serene make it seem easy and do-able. Thanks!
4/3/2014 06:43:15 am
I have been doing THM since February 2013. I lost 13 pounds (which is 3 more than my goal) and experienced renewed energy levels and many more migraine free days. Now I'm 29 weeks pregnant :)
4/3/2014 06:50:31 am
Would love to try the THM sweetners! I love THM, lost 12 1/2 lbs since March 3. Can't wait to lose more and get healthier!!!
4/3/2014 06:57:39 am
I received a copy of Trim Healthy Mama several months ago and am still trying to process the "hows"... Taking baby steps to make what are, to me at least, radical changes in my eating habits... Enjoying the journey so far!... Thanks for the giveaway!
4/3/2014 07:12:11 am
I started probably a year ago, but then didn't do so good once I got pregnant bc of first trimester stuff. I'm loosely following it again! I'd love to try their new sweeteners!
4/3/2014 07:14:31 am
I've just started THM and am really so excited for this journey to health!
4/3/2014 07:19:11 am
my b day is 4/10 this would be an awesome present!
4/3/2014 07:20:31 am
I have just joined the THM Beginners Facebook group and have been learning a little from there… Have not ordered my book but I'm still interested in their products and recipes!
4/3/2014 07:20:36 am
Thank you for your review
4/3/2014 07:21:30 am
I've not started THM yet, because I've been leery of the sweeteners. I'd love to give this a try!
4/3/2014 07:25:59 am
I started THM in Nov. 2013. I have followed the plan half heartedly. I gained 5 lbs for Christmas (son home from college for a month). I lost those 5 plus 10 more. My goal is to get to prepregnancy weight. ( My son is 20!) 12 pounds to go!
4/3/2014 07:26:26 am
I just started about three weeks ago. Lost 3 pounds the first week. Fell off the wagon the second week but only gained half a pound back. Going strong this week and see the differences. Feeling healthier and loving it!
4/3/2014 07:30:22 am
Loving THM! I have 9 children and need to lose weight! :)
4/3/2014 07:32:50 am
Sorry, I have been doing this strictly for 3 weeks!
4/3/2014 07:38:12 am
I was on the plan for 6 months but the last two I have been really only on it half the time. I am trying to get back on it all the way.
4/3/2014 07:47:34 am
Excited about these sweeteners. Planning to start THM soon...wanted to wait until after vacation (last week).
4/3/2014 07:49:22 am
I bought the book two weeks ago, and now I'm reading it and gearing up to get started. This sweetener would be so helpful!
4/3/2014 07:52:38 am
I've been doing THM since the end of August 2013. I have lost 22 pounds and 2 sizes. I love being able to eat well!!- and yummy food!
4/3/2014 08:21:25 am
thank you so much...the descriptions of each item above will help me on my new journey with THM. I have already ordered the Blend as well as the large bag of Stevia. I am expecting them tomorrow. Winning would be the icing on the cake as I would have the opportunity to share with a new convert :-)
4/3/2014 08:22:14 am
I cannot wait to test these out for myself.
4/3/2014 08:25:58 am
Still trying to get the necessary ingredients
4/3/2014 08:33:52 am

4/3/2014 08:37:51 am

4/3/2014 09:18:03 am
Just starting THM - making the transition from GAPS and have a hard time getting used to eating some carbs.
4/3/2014 09:21:40 am
I got the book in November of last year and slowly worked my way through it. I am definitely a turtle, but I love learning all the new ways of doing things.
4/3/2014 09:27:31 am
I've been doing THM for about 3 months now and am almost at goal weight!
4/3/2014 09:29:43 am
I started in mid-January and am down 18#. I love THM because I'm not gnawing on the table leg, waiting for the next meal to roll around! Love the recipes!
4/3/2014 09:31:34 am
I have been doing THM for 2 weeks and am still trying to get the hang of the plan. I have struggled especially hard with figuring out which items to swap out to continue making delicious food and desserts on plan. Thank you for taking the time to explain how to use these new sweeteners in recipes!
4/3/2014 09:50:21 am
I have been following THM for 3 days shy of 6 months now! Down 31 pounds and never going back! So thankful for this eating plan that makes such great sense!
4/3/2014 09:50:38 am
I just ordered the book and am extremely excited and ready to make the change!
4/3/2014 10:01:24 am
I would love to try any and all of these sweeteners. I have been perusing THM for months, but I am such a turtle. More like a snail!
4/3/2014 10:04:54 am
thanks for sharing all this wonderful information! I hope I can get a chance to try it.
4/3/2014 10:25:39 am
I started THM Feb 17th( after Valentines day so I could have what I wanted without any guilt lol). I have lost about 20lbs and don't know how many inches. I have gone down 1 size so far and I am thrilled. This is the first time I tried to lose weight and see the scale move down instead of up. I don't like the thought of pills or gimmicks so this fit me and has worked. Can't wait to try the new sweeteners too.
4/3/2014 10:27:26 am
I've been on the Trim Healthy Mama diet for 10 months and have lost 40 pounds! Thanks for the giveaway!
4/3/2014 10:36:26 am
Thank you for the opportunity to win a couple of THM Sweeteners! I've been THMing for 8 months now and today I surpassed my goal weight by .4, so excited. 25lbs gone and quite easily. Now it's time to try T-Tapp to tone and trim the last couple of inches!
4/3/2014 10:55:19 am

4/3/2014 10:59:56 am
I started THM 7 weeks ago, I love it.. It has brought my blood sugar down & keeping it at a good stable level..
4/3/2014 11:04:14 am
I started THM with my mom, who lives right next door, in January 2013. This way of eating is absolutely wonderful and it is a true blessing to have friends and family join me!
4/3/2014 11:10:22 am
Just found your site and am reading to learn more!
4/3/2014 11:26:49 am

4/3/2014 11:45:32 am
I have been following THM since Jan 2014. I am transitioning from Splenda to Stevia and would love to try the THM Stevia! :)
4/3/2014 11:54:51 am
I have been following the plan rather loosely for about 6 months. I use xylitol and stevia and would love to try the THM Stevia!
4/3/2014 11:55:38 am
I started THM in the middle of February.
4/3/2014 12:16:19 pm
I am still reading the book and eager to get going with THM! To win one of these would be a great way for me to try them out. Thank you!

Thank you for the chance to win!

Answering the question: I have been learning about THM since last summer. I'm trying to get more serious about it.
4/3/2014 12:25:09 pm
I was on plan for about 6 weeks in Oct/Nov 2013. Life got crazy and it got a little hard to stay on plan. Now that it's springtime, it's time to take back the reins of my life and get going again! Summer's just around the corner, and it's time to shed this winter "fluff!"
4/3/2014 12:26:34 pm
I've been enjoying the Trim, Healthy Mama lifestyle for 5 months.
4/3/2014 12:27:40 pm
I have been following the THM program partly for about 2 months, My plan is to get on it full time now. I am very excited that they have come out with their own sweeteners, I haven't tried them yet, but I am excited to do so when the finances allow me to do so. I think this is wonderful for you to have this giveaway, I hope that I am the lucky one!
4/3/2014 12:40:07 pm
I started the plan in August 2013
4/3/2014 12:46:51 pm

4/3/2014 12:57:13 pm
