Ok, let's take a look at hidden sugars, the different names for them and where they could be lurking:

don't take sweeteners in drinks but will check to see if there are any lurking in cereals, etc.

Yay, Diva & Kitty! My skin looks better too! I didn't put two & two together though. If that's the lack of sugar, it was WAY worth it!

:D
My Zumba class tonight, minus one. I'm the one holding up the peace sign. Had a wonderful time!

The prior water drinking challenge has radically decreased my desire for Diet Coke (my only fake sugar craving).

I have started drinking water w/ lemon and/or lime or unsweetened ice tea instead of diet soda. I feel better and my skin looks GREAT!

I was a big, big lover of The Little Pink Packet called SweetnLow, the artificial sweetener. And when I say love, I mean LOVE. I even sewed myself a personal carrier for my purse especially for the pink packet. There are other packets out there, there's the Blue, there's the Yellow and I think there is now the White & Green (Truvia). I was using 2 pink packets PER CUP of coffee or tea plus adding pre-sweetened creamer on top of that. I was drinking 2-4 cups of coffee a day, so that's up to 8 packets in just my coffee or tea!

My doctor told me to get off of the artificial sweeteners immediately. He said that if lab rats are fed only those sweeteners, they gain weight, though the cause is not known. Not only that, but they are FAKE. The body does not know what to do with fake stuff and stores it as fat in your body.

Here are a few articles on the subject I found useful:

The 5 Best & the 5 Worst Sweeteners:

Your challenge for this week is to get off of any of the bad sweeteners on the list above and move to the "good" sweeteners.

Yes, this means Diet Sodas or Pops or Cokes, or whatever you call them, too! I means to remove anything that is a fake sweentener from your diet.

I have been off all sweets now since Christmas. I have one-two cups of uncaf tea per day and the nutritionists say that Stevia is ok...Pure Via. I use 1/2-1 per day. It is the only no calorie sweetener that is natural. Another sweetener that is ok, though it isn't zero calorie, is raw, unfiltered Honey...but not too much!

Do that for 4 of the 6 days remaining in the Challenge. See what you think! Post here.
