I have quit soda cold turkey. Have only had a craving for it twice since I quit a week. I am drinking water with lemon juice or hot tea with sugar and cinnamon instead. I add 3 tsps. of sugar to every 1.5 cup of tea (a mug). Tried replacing the sugar with honey and it's just not doing it for me. I don't want to use anything that contains any Aspartame. Any suggestions?

Your body does need good fats and good sugars !!
Obviously, everthing in moderation.


olive oil
peanut butter
low fat cheese
low fat yogurt


whole grain breads/cereal

I do not add butter/oil/salt/or sugar to anything i eat, unless it has already been added. For example I will eat peanuts or lean cuisine meals that have have relatively high sodium percentages. I do know that your body needs some of these sugars and oils as a necessity, so i was just wondering if anyone can answer this question...

-Am I getting enough of the necessary sugars/oils/salts that i need in order to be healthy and lose weight?

-Is it really that bad to add a little bit of salt to something?
