Why I won’t eat artificial sugars

Reblogging this post because it is important…

My Fit Decision

I suppose I should start this post by talking about my background. When I was putting myself through hair school I worked at Whole Foods Market (WFM). One of this things that happens when you work there is you learn about how horrible artificial ingredients are. ( some I guess would say slightly brainwashed, eh)

Over time your body goes “I’m onto you fake sugar, I’m not producing insulin for no reason” so then when you DO eat sugar (like cake) nothing shows up to break it down and convert it so WOMP all of it…. on your ass! You’re better off not trying to trick your body….. You only screw it up worse……
