The only thing I have given up completely in my quest for lower weight and better health is soda. Any and all. Diet and/or Regular. The empty calories of sugared soda wasn't worth it and the chemicals in the diet are just not good for you.
Since giving up on diet soda, I no longer eat any fake sweeteners. Which makes it so that I eat more REAL food. For ecample, I can no longer eat 'lite' yogurts with chemicals and processed fruits. I eat real greek yoburt with real fruit. With the nutrients in tact and healthful.
I also notice that my cravings for sweets have gone down tremendously and I no longer get migraines. I'm starting to see a huge correlation between fake sweeteners and all sorts of physical ailments. Give up the pop, drink more water!!!
