A few months ago I was drinking about 2 liters of Diet Coke a day (gross, but true). When I decided to cut back I worried about the caffeine withdrawl, but what I actually dealt with was aspartame withdrawl. You guys, it wasn't pretty. Think headaches, nausea and aches. So if you are currently consuming aspartame on a regular basis - heed my warning. The stuff is NOT good for you. Want proof? Check it out here
So what do healthy-ish people do when they want delicious, carbonated diet coke but DO NOT want to put weird chemicals in their body? They find alternatives. Lately I taste-tested two diet coke alternatives, and here are my findings:
Calorie-free doesn't always mean healthy - in fact, many times it means "filled with chemicals". For 95 calories you can put something natural and satisfying into your body. So do that...and don't drive yourself insane. Just don't drink them all day everyday (I personally like to have one as a snack everyday at around 4pm). Now go forth, break free from the shackles of aspartame. It's a new, healthy-ish day my friends!
Have any recommendations for diet , sugar-free or low-calorie sodas for me to try?
