    I feel like I must be lucky that I think most non-sugar sweeteners taste really, really nasty (that includes artificial ones like aspertame and "natural" ones like stevia and agave - yuck), so I've never developed any habit of using them.... I'm not really much of a soda person, but when I do feel like one I prefer real sugar over anything else - it really does taste better IMHO. I get my caffeine fix with tea and would rather have it unsweetened 99% of the time, though a little honey in chai brings out the spices.

    Processed foods are foods that have been altered from their natural state, but processed foods are not as bad as we think.You need to avoid some ingrediants in processed foods such as
    >>>> Artificial Colors
    >>>> Artificial Flavorings
    >>>> Artificial Sweeteners
    >>>> Benzoate Preservatives
    >>>> Brominated Vegetable Oil
    >>>> High Fructose Corn Syrup
    >>>> Monosodium Glutamate
    and Olestra.

    I am very low on HFCS
    Why not get rid of it altogether? Once I started reading labels, I found it was pretty darn easy to avoid. If nothing else, I'll take the sugar sweetened alternative. I don't think I have anything in teh house any more with HCFS in it, except maybe a bag of chocolate chips in the cupboard. I even found HFCS free fudge sauce online and ordered a few jars. Also, I have written many of teh main stream companies now making HFCS free products . Hunts is a good example: they make a HFCS free ketchup now.

    I never thought that I would be full processed food free, but I am now (as well as grain and legume free). I feel so much better focusing on whole foods and knowing exactly what is in the food I eat. Energy levels are much better and I just FEEL better. For me it works. Cooking is fun again and after almost 2 months I don't see my going back

    Nice list but I eat food that's made from food. Read the labels or better yet get things without labels (found in the produce section). If you need a chemistry degree to decipher anything in the label don't eat it, if it's not made from real food don't eat it. It's really not that hard.
