Don’t Drink Diet Soda!

     Although this doesn’t have too much to do with recovery from bulimia/binge eating disorder, I wanted to share this article about the adverse affects of diet soda.

     I gave up diet sodas shortly after giving up binge eating, and I’m so glad I did. I am convinced that stuff is toxic! Once I decided to quit, it didn’t take too long for my cravings for it to go away (the experience of quitting binge eating has allowed me to quit other bad habits rather easily, using the same tactics). I have a regular soda maybe 10 times a year, and although I know that’s not good for me either, I’ll take the real sugar any day over aspartame. Just something to think about.
