The title says it all! I decided to give up aspartame and all fake sugar (except for splenda...mostly in my coffee) and I can definitely tell a difference! I was at the point where I was drinking diet sodas and chewing sugarless gum up the wazoo and the aspartame was making me sick! I constantly had stomach aches and just felt sort of "weird." I would never have attributed it to the aspartame, but now that I've given it up, I realize how it was almost like poison to my body! I know this may sound like an exaggeration, but there is something to it. All those chemicals in that stuff CANNOT be good for you and, if you eat a lot of equal or nutrasweet, try giving it up for a week or so and I'll bet you notice how great you feel. Let me know!!
oh i believe ya..another thing you should give up is gluten..bet you'd feel even better without that..Gluten>>white bread, whole wheat bread..etc stuff made with white flour is very harmful to the health..with very little nutrtion in there..Yes..
I think I pretty much HAVE given up gluten! I eat carbs in the form of beans, vegetables, and fruits and use bread very sparingly. I can't even remember the last time I had bread, actually! I can definitely tell a difference from that, as well!!! What else is gluten in?
hi, well yeah im a master at this..but Gluten is in everything..put it this way its in all the junk...cookies, cereals, canned soups, mustard, ketchup, relish, vinegar is from malt and, malt is from gluten..eww..cold cuts, hot-dogs, eww..spices, cakes, pies, some drinks, ice cream, some cheeses, frozen junk food..sauces, pasta, crackers, candies, meds, creams, soaps, shampoos, gum..guess what im really avoiding this stuff..haha.. I could understand them putting this stuff in cookies and, cakes..but, shampoos and, creams..that is totally ridiculous...im glad im avoiding this JUnK..its really no good just like suger and, salt..
try getting yourself some corn bread, or soy bread, or rice bread..much better..you will feel the diference..
I hear you on giving up the fake stuff! There actually have been many articles written on what the fake sugar can do to your body. Some believe it can cause difficulties with one's immune system, not to mention what it can do on the stomach.
Good for you! I am working on giving up the sugarless gum!!
for the sugarless gum..this is what i do, i put a tooth pik in my mouth or, i eat a prune and, keep the nut in my mouth all afternoon..lol, keeps my mouth busy..>> gotta learn how to control the mouth bacuz it wants everything..oyi
Splenda is a differnt kind of artificial sweetener, though, that isn't as harmful as aspartame. I don't notice the same side-effects from Splenda that I do from Equal or Sweet n low. And are sugar alcohols considered the same as fake sugar? Or are they less harmful?
