Eliminate Diet Soda From Your Diet -

99% of all diet soda contains significant quantities of aspartame, a chemical that confuses our bodies and is associated with unhealthy diets and the inability to lose unwanted belly fat. I was once a Diet Dr Pepper addict, consuming 10 cans a day. I stopped cold turkey by switching over to drinking brewed tea. I now sweeten my drinks using Stevia or Truvia, a natural sweetener (made from plants) that contains zero calories. I have not had a diet drink now in over 5 years and amazingly, have not missed them one bit!
