Well, I finally did it. I cut the Diet Coke out of my life. I have wanted to do so for a long time now, because of the health issues associated with it. But after reading an article about aspartame poisoning, I had the kick in the pants to really do it. This is day 4 with no coke and I feel great. No caffeine headaches, thanks to a cup of chai tea each morn. No cravings for coke or for carbohydrates. Wonder of wonders. :) Here are two articles that really changed my thinking. One health related the other environmental/human rights.
