Almost 2 weeks ago I thought I’d give giving up aspartame a try. Other than a little bit here and there, it was easier than I thought, thanks to Splenda.
Funny thing…within a day or so my cravings for sugary things dropped off considerably. I had a raging sweet tooth that was hell to deal with—I always wanted candy in the evenings. Jelly Belly Jelly Beans . Skittles. Chocolate. It took great restraint to not eat tons and tons of the stuff.
I haven’t wanted any candy or other really sweet stuff in a week and a half.
I lost two pounds, too…
So maybe there is something to it, after all.
