Can’t believe it’s been 7 days already.
I have made it 7 days without Diet Mountain Dew! In my process of switching to whole, real foods, diet mountain dew has been my one major holdout. I could cut back to one a day, but I could not drop that last one.

Here’s 2 of the worst offenders:

Great blog post about a lot of artificial sweeteners and why you should avoid:
Brominated Vegetable Oil (BVO) – This is more specific to Mountain Dew (regular and diet). It was used to be in Gatorade, but has been pulled. BVO is banned in Europe. Would you like a little flame retardant to go with that?
I’m happy to be getting out of my system. I have no intentions of going back when the 30 days is over. I would never want my kids drinking it, so why should I?
I have been drinking a lot of water and usually 1 green tea and 1 plain lipton tea.
Do you drink diet soda? Have you tried to quit? What has helped you get through quitting?
