LindaLee Posted August 20, 2013 Share Posted August 20, 2013 After many years of slurping down Diet Mountain Dew...and several slips over the last year or so since I "went Paleo," I think I've finally pinned the beast. A few weeks ago, I was at a conference...and though I love my tea, it wasn't readily available. I don't drink coffee. The rest of my food had been 80/20 at best - Paleo by day, indulgence by night - and not surprisingly, I was dragging. So I thought I would "treat" myself and have some readily-available caffeine. I bought a Diet Mt. Dew. And from the start, it was AWFUL. HORRIBLE. Treacly sweet and just...yuck. After a few drinks, I began to feel quite dreadful...it's hard to describe but it was kind of like being poisoned. I doggedly kept at it until about halfway through, then I thought, "This is just silly. I feel awful and I really don't want to feel any worse." And I threw the thing away. I never thought I would despise my Diet Dew. This gives me hope that one day SOON I will chuck the other demon in my life - the sugar demon - with equal success. I still have work to do, I still have battles to fight, but I had to share this success! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
