One of the positive things that happened throughout the divorce was my weight loss. It wasn't intentional. It started with a bad case of bronchitis that caused me to lose my appetite. From there, I just kept at it. I didn't diet but cut out processed sugars and processed foods. That sounds difficult, but it really wasn't.
What I found was I felt better and no longer had heartburn or water retention. I didn't link the two together and assumed it was from my weight loss. The other day, I had to go out for awhile, so I went to get a bottled water off the shelf. Unfortunately, I found someone had taken the last one and didn't add it to the grocery list, so I grabbed a CLEAR AMERICAN flavored water that was my ex had purchased from Walmart instead. I was blown away by how sweet the taste was and really didn't want to drink it, but had no choice because of the location I was at.
THIS INFORMATION about it. Phenylanlaine is considered POSSIBLY SAFE. After reading what it can do, why is it in my drink?!!!! This beverage is marketed as a good alternative to sodas, something with no calories, no sodium and no caffeine. Well... I just discovered what I was doing to myself when I drank this.
It took those 4 days to get that stuff out of my system. I am back to normal and am back to being processed foods free. I feel good again and am much more careful of what I grab in a pinch. I used to be skeptical of the claims that these things really can cause so much damage to your system. Now, skepticism has been tossed out the window.
Do yourself a favor and read the labels and check out what the ingredients of the items you ingest can do to you. You will be stunned at what you find!!!!
