Is Aspartame Sweetener in Your Food? Here’s How to Avoid It

dreamstime.com
Aspartame is an artificial super sweetener that some food manufacturers use to cut cost on sugar. Just a little of it makes food so sweet because it is said to be 200 times sweeter than sugar.

Problem is, the little you get becomes super dangerous when accumulated in your body. Aspartame is made of two amino acids which are building blocks of protein. That’s supposed to be healthy, right? But they are held or bonded together using methyl ester bond—or methanol.

Aspartame releases methanol (or wood alcohol) in your bloodstream. Then it gets converted into formaldehyde which experts say is an embalming fluid, or something equivalent to that. Imagine embalming fluid running in your bloodstream and reaching vital organs, especially the brain and the nerves.

I wonder--is this why Parkinson's or Alzheimer's is rampant today and experts can't explain why?

Now, watch this video on aspartame..


You see, aspartame is mostly in your so-called "sugar-free" food and beverages, making you think they are healthier and diabetic-friendly. You may not get sugar from them but they'd give you other health problems--probably even more serious than diabetes. 

So stay away from artificial juice drinks, powdered juice drinks, "sugar-free" softdrinks and sodas, and the like. Better yet, always look at the labels of food and beverage products you buy. I have developed that habit. I've become a food label detective.

Much better, consume less (or zero) artificial food and beverage products. I prefer making my own natural juice drinks with zero sugar. Sometimes I use honey or brown sugar. And definitely no softdrinks. That's definitely cheaper for you--for cheap health and fitness with middle income budget. Save the money and invest it later--you get healthier and rich!

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
