WOW!! Good News:

Drinking low- and no-calorie beverages leads to a desire for sweets.
Fact

Scientific research in humans shows that sugar substitutes do not cause sweet cravings, nor do they cause hunger. In the recent Choose Healthy Options Consciously Everyday (CHOICE) study, researchers compared low- and no-calorie beverages with water and found that neither caused food cravings. In fact, the diet beverage drinkers ate less dessert than those who drank water alone. Meanwhile, a scientific review paper that gathered the findings of multiple studies done with children and teens as participants found no evidence that low- and no-calorie sweeteners prompted snacking or overeating at meals.

"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom."


My translation of this quote is that no matter what happens to me, I always have the power to choose my response. By practicing this powerful principle over and over, I can continue improving my response leading to many types of growth and freedom. As a shy person with social anxiety who felt trapped in his own body, when I read this in my mid 20s and started putting it into action, it changed my life. emoticon

"Charity is having patience with someone who has let us down.
It is resisting the impulse to become offended easily.
It is accepting people as they truly are.
It is looking beyond physical appearances
to attributes that do not dim through time.
It is resisting the impulse to categorize others."
Thomas S. Monson emoticon
