I Don't Do That Anymore
Well it has been 3 months since I no longer drink Diet Coke....I LOVED Diet Coke...it was the first thing that I drank in the morning and the last thing at night...when I was hungry, I got a DC...when I was stressed, I got a DC. I could drink in 1 to 3 days a case of it.
...and boy did I eat the junk food. I craved it. When I lived in Slidell, I would stop at the gas station right outside my neighborhood and get 2 more Diet Cokes and 2 Hubig lemon pies as my breakfast and for the drive to work. I ate chips and candy bars and junk all day long with all the Diet Cokes.
...and the salt that I would add to my food was a truck load. I did not even taste the food before I poured the salt on it. And I do mean pour it on.
The other day, I realized (and my husband did too)...I don't eat junk food anymore and I rarely add salt to my food after it is cooked.
I am not a nutritionist but it seems to me that something in Diet Coke made me crave junk food and salt
Things have changed....for the better
