Six months ago, I was loving my diet coke.
Six months ago, I was loving the caffeine.
Six months ago, I had increased blood pressure, blurry vision, headaches, dizziness, head fog, and other unexplained issues.
So six months ago, I did some research to see if it all was connected.
Turns out, some artificial sweeteners can have negative effects on certain people.
Lucky me. Guess I was one of those “certain” people.
I gave up diet drinks for about two months. That’s all I could handle. Then slowly, diet drinks began to enter my life again. And you know what?
I had the same medical issues.
You’d think I’d learn, huh?
Once again, I ditched the splenda and tossed in caffeine for good measure.
So I have been caffeine and artificial sweetener free for four months.
And my blood pressure has decreased back to the normal zone.
Methinks perhaps artificial sweeteners are not the best thing for our bodies.
Or at least mine.
Oh, and the added bonus? I have lost my craving for sweets.
Strange how things are linked together, huh?
