My Diet Coke Addiction

So .. yup … there is that. I have fully and officially confessed that I have an ongoing addiction to something I know is bad for me.

The thing is there was a lot of hearsay from Friends about the actually reason this is bad for me so I did some YouTube digging and some internet digging. I found this chart below on Renegade Pharmacist – which I thought captured the addiction perfectly.

Aspartame (APM; /ˈæspərtm/ or /əˈspɑːrtm/) is an artificial, non-saccharide sweetener used as a sugar substitute in some foods and beverages

So with all this new found knowledge in mind. My March Challenge is to officially cut out Diet Coke from my food I eat or drink list – no bubbly, or aspartame deliciousness this month. This one is going to be tough.
