Count down to one month without artificial sweeteners....
Just a couple more days and it will be a whole month in which I consumed NO artificial sweeteners...no diet soda...no equal/splenda in my coffee...no sprinkles over my fruit or in my yogurt (well, no yogurt either)....
I know this is a bit of shameless horn tooting but I am so happy that I am breaking this habit!
How do you feel? Notice any differences?
Details, we need DETAILS
In general, I feel great. I know a lot of that is elimination of grains, which have never sat well with me anyway. As far as the sweetener goes, there are times that I really want to stop at StarBucks for a non fat latte with two splendas but I get over it.
I still have not gotten to the point of using high fat dairy. I am doing quite well with black coffee or with some coconut milk. I also notice that the times I want a diet soda are when I am tired...so I go to bed.
I also notice that I am waking up without my alarm clock! So crazy for someone that was a chronic snooze button pusher!
