Default Officially gave up artifical sweeteners today

I'd been slowly weaning myself off of it-I've been having coffee with just a bit of plain cream, and iced tea plain-for a few months, and today I dumped out the rest of my Splenda. I found it was hindering my weight loss and health efforts, as I would drink Diet pop over water and found it was making me feel hungry when I wasn't. Also I found it gave me headaches and bloating on occasion. So glad to be taking another step toward HEALTHY-not just weight loss!

Woo! Go you! That's a toughie to give up, for me at least. I hope giving them up helps your progress

I had to give up stevia...it was making my legs and feet hurt REALLY bad and feel really weak and sometimes they just wouldn't work.

Good for you! I gave up fake sugar several years ago and it was a super wise decision! You won't be sorry!
