    I know most of us stay away from this m stuff , but if you have some family and friends who still drink diet after reading this it is  willful ignorance of the dangers of saving a few calories.

    A lot of the diet sodas are stopping using aspartame, but read the labels there are plenty of products still using it

    Dropping Aspartame from my diet was one of the best moves of my life. I can’t go into the details because OPSEC, but damn that shit hurt me. Took up to a year to recover from decades of ingestion, but I’m never going back.

    Just my opinion.

    Personally, we go with food in it’s most natural state.  Chemicals just can’t possibly be good for the body no matter how the exposure.  The really sad part is these companies know what the risks are but don’t care as long as they make money.

    I used to swig back Diet Coke in astonishing amounts. Cutting it out was HARD – it was like an addiction. But my health really turned around for the better when I got that garbage out of my system. Now, if I unknowningly consume anything that contains aspartame, I’ve got an instant blinding headache. Pure poison.

    Aspartame (NutraSweet), sucralose (Splenda), saccharin (Sweet-n-Low) have no food value.  They can block the production of serotonin, which is a natural brain chemical.  A shortage of serotonin creates a craving for foods that help produce more of it, which are starchy, high-calorie, carbohydrate-rich snack foods.  They also cause an insulin spike even when there is no sugars for the insulin to react to.  Bad Ju-Ju… all of them!

    James M…..Didn’t know that about the Serotonin.  I do know a shortage of serotonin will cause sleep problems.  Neurotransmitters in brain must be balanced in order to achieve sleep.  So laying awake’s brain might be waiting for serotonin to come up to normal levels…..which is something my disease causes.

    Fortunately I’ve never been able to tolerate those sweeteners and a few years ago, DH got off his Diet Pepsi.  Now drinks other things!  I drink almost exclusively our well water.
