This seems very unlikely. A can of diet soda contains about 180mg of aspartame. Aspartame is a phenylalanine/aspartic acid dipeptide, so it will yield around 90mg of phenylalanine. According to cronometer, yesterday I ate 116g of protein from... (more)

So I have this vice--spry chewing gum. When I first made the switch to primal/paleo eating habits I used regular sugar free gum (aspartame overload!) to help deal with the sugar cravings I was having after removing all of the heavy carbs, sweets... (more)

My dentist recommended I chew gum as my gums are more dry than he'd prefer. I've been using Spry for almost 2 years and I've had no negative effects at all. I've also had great dental checkups, which I assume relates to what I'm eating but... (more)

I know cavemen did not have the luxury of this sweet and delicious drink. Due to it's zero calorie sweetener I think it would be a good substitute for the Classic Coke I hold dear.

If you want something tart like Crystal Light, make some hibiscus tea. I also like Celestial Season's Red Zinger. Crystal Light is full of chemicals.

As an adult, you may eat anything you want at any time that you want. Paleo is not that difficult. The strictest eat only things that could have been hunted/gathered, in season, and require no cooking. After that, it's pretty much up to you how... (more)

Aspartame is an Excitotoxin. I recommend exactly 0 grams daily. Like MSG, it stimulates the Nervous System... In your Pancreas this causes insulin release, which causes a drop in blood sugar, which causes the hungries... This is one of the... (more)
