Healthy Living: The Fake Sugar Challenge

So, with diet soda and artificial sweeteners rampant, I wonder if they have an effect on us.

I mean, if you think about it, these substances are tricking us into thinking that we’re receiving nutrition that we’re actually not receiving at all.  So we feel full, but we’re actually hungry.

And when we eat REAL sugar, we feel like it’s not enough, because, well, we’re used to the fake stuff, which is often much sweeter.  So your real sugar intake goes up.

I challenge you to cut out sucralose, aspartame, and other artificial sweeteners for a day.  You’ll find them everywhere.

Why trick your body?  Eat what’s good, what’s natural, and what’s right.
