Cut out the fake sugar

creamer, sugar and spices

Zero-calorie sweeteners are everywhere, especially when you enter the realm of weight loss.  Included in everything from diet soda to ice cream, these sugar alcohols sound too good to be true.  This is because they end up causing more harm than good.  They hide behind names such as aspartame, mannitol, sorbitol, lactitol, isomalt, maltitol and hydrogenated starch (HSH), and they cause uncomfortable bloating when consumed in large amounts.  Take time to read the labels on your food to be sure you’re eating natural ingredients, and find healthy ways to curb your sweet tooth!
