Yes I did have some and yes it did!:)
I changed it to a mobile friendly layout because people were having trouble navigating from their mobile devices. It should still be endless scroll, at least it is on my phone. I’ll have to take a look at my layout from my computer. I’ll take your concern into consideration, thanks for your input:)
Thanks so much, glad to hear you like the blog and thanks for following. Keep it up girl! You got this:)
Try drinking a lot of water, brushing your teeth, keeping busy, go exercise.. If you’re truly hungry eat some vegetables or something healthy and eat slowly, at the table, without television or Internet. A big reason most people binge is they don’t eat enough in the morning or throughout the day. Do not skip meals!! Even after a binge don’t skip the next meal to try to make up for it, if you do that youre likely to binge again thinking you can “make-up” for it later. Have a healthy balanced meal at the next scheduled time. Realize you made a mistake and get back on track. If your currently eating three meals a day try eating 5-6 small meals throughout the day about 4 hours apart from each other instead. You’ll be eating more often so you’ll feel less deprived and the smaller amounts will be easier for your digestive system to handle. Again chew thoroughly and eat slowly, savor your food and enjoy it when you have it then just drink water till your next scheduled meal time. Planning your meals ahead of time is very helpful.
It depends on the individual. For me about 9 hours leaves me feeling rested. I read somewhere that the body should be resting in 3 hour interval 3,6,9,12 hours..it had something to do with your body’s rem cycles..but I can’t remember the source for that article. Here’s a pretty good article I found that might be helpful. http://www.sleepfoundation.org/article/how-sleep-works/how-much-sleep-do-we-really-need
Do some research and experiment a little with your sleep schedule until you find what works.
Sucralose: What are the cons?
The most misunderstood fact about sucralose is that it is nothing like sugar even though the marketing implies that it is. Sucralose was actually discovered while trying to create a new insecticide. It may have started out as sugar, but the final product is anything but sugar. According to the book Sweet Deception, sucralose is made when sugar is treated with trityl chloride, acetic anhydride, hydrogen chlorine, thionyl chloride, and methanol in the presence of dimethylformamide, 4-methylmorpholine, toluene, methyl isobutyl ketone, acetic acid, benzyltriethlyammonium chloride, and sodium methoxide, making it unlike anything found in nature. If you read the fine print on the Splenda web site, it states that “although sucralose has a structure like sugar and a sugar-like taste, it is not natural.”
The name sucralose is misleading. The suffix -ose is used to name sugars, not additives. Sucralose sounds very close to sucrose, table sugar, and can be confusing for consumers. A more accurate name for the structure of sucralose was purposed. The name would have been trichlorogalactosucrose, but the FDA did not believe that it was necessary to use this so sucralose was allowed.
The presence of chlorine is thought to be the most dangerous component of sucralose. Chlorine is considered a carcinogen and has been used in poisonous gas, disinfectants, pesticides, and plastics. The digestion and absorption of sucralose is not clear due to a lack of long-term studies on humans. The majority of studies were done on animals for short lengths of time. The alleged symptoms associated with sucralose are gastrointestinal problems (bloating, gas, diarrhea, nausea), skin irritations (rash, hives, redness, itching, swelling), wheezing, cough, runny nose, chest pains, palpitations, anxiety, anger, moods swings, depression, and itchy eyes. The only way to be sure of the safety of sucralose is to have long-term studies on humans done.
Splenda is a product that contains the artificial sweetener sucralose, but that is not all that it contains. Sucralose does have calories, but because it is 600 times sweeter than sugar, very small amounts are needed to achieve the desired sweetness so you most likely won’t consume enough to get any calories. The other two ingredients in Splenda are dextrose and maltodextrin, which are used to increase bulk and are carbohydrates that do have calories. One cup of Splenda contains 96 calories and 32 grams of carbohydrates, which is often unnoticed due to the label claiming that it’s a no calorie sweetener. Because this is found in so many products and can be used in cooking, it can be possible to consume 1 cup or more each day. For people with diabetes, this is a significant amount of carbohydrates, and for people who are watching their weight, this can be a problem. Consuming an additional 100 calories a day can result in a weight gain of 10 lbs. per year!
A recent study found that Splenda affected the absorption of medications in rats. The rats were given sucralose at doses of 1.1-11 mg/kg. After 12-weeks, they found that the rats had half of the good bacteria in the gut. They also found that Splenda interferes with the absorption of prescription medications. Other research studies have come out to show that this is not what happens. The only way to know for sure is to perform long-term studies in humans. Unfortunately, this takes time. It can also be dangerous if this is actually happening. The limited number of studies and lack of long-term studies on sucralose means that we are going to have to learn things like this as we go.
