SAY "NO" TO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS!

SAY "NO" TO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS!  




For years I have always tried to eat healthy and cut calories.  I consumed a lot of these artificial sweeteners when I was doing Weight Watchers.  I would try to cut calories and still eat the sugary tasting foods that I enjoyed.  Little did I know that by consuming these sweeteners they were making my sweet tooth even worse!  I stopped doing Weight Watchers because I really wanted to focus on clean and healthy eating.  Not just counting calories and trying to eat fat free and low calorie foods.  

Cutting artificial sweeteners out of my life has been by FAR the BIGGEST struggle in my lifestyle change.  I was addicted.  I still think my body is detoxing from them. Dr. Oz says to limit to several packets a day but I say eliminate them all!  If you have to use them due to diabetes then limit them.  If you do not need to take them cut them out of your diet.  Eat healthy and clean!  

If I ABSOLUTELY need something sweetened I now use stevia.  
Stevia Rebaudiana is an herb in the Chyrsanthemum family which 
grows wild as a small shrub in parts of Paraguay and Brazil.  





Take control today and get these toxins out of your body!  
Check your food labels before you buy anything.  
You will be SHOCKED and how many items you will find these toxins in.
