OOOOOHHHH How I love the sweet tasty goodness of my beloved Mt. Dew. Its became one of my BEST friends!!! Its refreshing flavor, its perfect amount of caffeine that, just revs me up in the A.M. AWWWWW........... I can taste it now!!!!!
I just love this stuff and I have tried so hard to cut back, but time and time again. I find myself rushing to the fridge at work and at home to grab an Ice Cold dew. I have no will power against the stuff. It calls my name, it knows my weakness's, its an evil little monster!!!
I really thought I was doing something good for myself, when I switched from regular soft drinks to diet. I can remember how hard it was for me to switch, I hated diet, now I cant stop!!!! The last 2 days, I have heard 2 times how awful diet drinks are for you, of coarse I have heard that artificial sweeteners can increase your risk if cancer, there isn't much that we consume this day in time that doesn't have a warning that it can increase your chances of cancer. 2 days in a row I have heard 2 separate studies!!!
A study presented at a American Diabetes Association meeting this week shows that drinking diet soda is associated with a wider waist in humans. And a second study shows that aspartame -- an artificial sweetener in diet soda -- actually raises blood sugar in mice prone to diabetes.
WHAT????!!!! I'm trying to loose this baby fat not keep it on!!! No wonder I always feel like my stomach is big and bloated, because it is!!!!!!!!!!!! Because I always have my favorite can in my hand!!!!
Soooooo with this said, I'm going to say a bitter sweet good bye to my beloved diet. dew and all other diet drinks. You have been quite the sneaky back stabber, making believe that you were some what good for me. All the while you were helping me to keep this baby fat and making me feel awful about myself!
Its going to be sooo hard to say good bye, But I must move on to healthier alternatives!!
Christina @ My Silly Life! kicked you to the curb, I can do it toooooo!!!!!
Good BYE Diet Mt. Dew!!!
So friends have you kicked the habit? what helped you to stop and move on!?
