So as I reflect on yesterday’s post…. I realize none of it made sense as I was all over the map. Oh well. At least it turned out to be a wicked day!
Got to down some coffee and get crazy buck wild, a decaf from Kimbo and the most amazing Iced Americano from Second Cup with my girl Crystal!(thank you for this awesome picture)
Second Cup Baby!
I drank mine black with a couple Stevia packs in them. Always bring some extra from home just in case I want to throw one in a treat like the coffee or in some oats with my meal.
For a few years now, I was having some serious gastro issues whenever I chewed gum, drank diet pop and anytime i’d use a sweetener in my coffee. Those little devils made me fart ALL the time,
made people not like me because I was smelly, and made me really uncomfortable for the amount of stress it put on my system. Sometimes that pain was ruthless! It wasn’t until I decided to boycott the whole group of those little buggers that things started to change. My family and friends are really happy that I switched to stevia. Now they only have to deal with egg farts.
One thing I can tell you, is a lot of my fitness buddies have been complaining about tummy troubles, and they know it’s from too much aspartame – ie. gum, diet pop, sweeteners, diet drinks of sorts..
Well friends, I challenge you to this.
If you can make it two full weeks without aspartame, you will feel phenomenal. When we eat clean, we already feel like that, but sometimes there’s that bloat, underlying tummy troubles and farts and whatever comes with this stupid chemical. Get on the Stevia train with me – I promise you the taste gets easier. Just like the first time you had coffee, you had to get used to that taste and now you love it, so lets learn to love Stevia and scrap the splenda and the twin sugar and all that crap.
Next time you want to curb that craving, drop by a natural health store and grab some gum or some stevia sweetened pop and save yourself the pain. It’s actually good too! I recommend the NOW brand of Stevia, seems to not have any weird taste afterwards.
