Next time you go see your doctor, tell him/her that you have embarked on a healthy journey. Most don't assume that you run 20 miles a week, do ST 3x/week, and monitor your food carefully. They assume the worst. You will find that your treatment is different once they know what you are up to!

For you young ladies in your early twenties/thirties, start writing down all the dates in your menstral cycle, both for menstration and for ovulation. That way you and your doctor will be able to tell when/if something goes wrong. Plus, you'll be able to tell when you are starting to hit the perimenopause years. If you havent noticed, every time you visit your doctor, no matter for what, they always ask you when the date of your last period was. Now you can tell them without guessing.

Get Doctors permission to try this. I recommend a Doctor's visit first.
I asked a nurse practioner if she heard that artificial sweetners were dangereous she had printed out some info and it scared me Splenda-your body doesn't recognize it so it hooks on to anything, artificial sweetners such as Equal and sweet and low are not in the healthy group, so I went to my doctor and told him I was not going to use sugar or sweetener and told him about the article he told me since I drink hot tea to use honey and I use a teaspoon of sugar on anything else I need sweet-----
