You know a few years ago I also was using Splenda. You know the 'made from real sugar' one
I remember years before that about the 'aspartame' and cancer link coming on the news and around that time i had the odd drin with canderel in it but only if i had to because i never did like the aftertaste of that stuff! so remember making a mental note of it, any how from that at the time my sister was studying nutrition so she was coming home and preparing meals for everybody and pointing stuff out to the rest of the family LOL like some obssessed mad woman! LOL
this then was around the time that they said on the news that 'aspartame' wasnt linked to cancer. so slowly over the years everybody kind of forgot about it. My sister however had moved onto the Splenda as the new version had just come out, she introduced it to me whilst i was living there for a couple of months and passed me the box, i remember asking her whether it had that disgusting stuff in it 'aspartame'! and she said no, it tastes like real sugar! so i used it because she had got rid of sugar from the house as she was weight watching lol.
so i put this stuff on my porridge and in my drinks (tea) used it in baking too, and god i was gobsmacked when i saw my tea kind of exploding!! it fizzed up like a substance in some kind of chemistry class!!
so what does that tell you? i said it must be full of chemicals!
i didnt mean to digress, sorry. Im glad you have given this up and feeling a bit better, give it time to get out of your system completely.
