5 Things To Cut Out of Your Diet Today

by April Klazema

You want to get healthy – who doesn’t?

But deciding what should and should not stay in your diet can be a challenge, especially when you consider all the little luxuries we allow ourselves from time to time.

While some luxuries are okay in moderation, there are others that you need to eliminate from your diet yesterday.


Not only can some of them lead to issues such as weight gain, but even serious health issues that can have a big effect on your body.

Let’s have a look at some the things you can remove from your cupboard to optimize your health.

1. Artificial Sweeteners

We could probably go on and on about just how dangerous diet drinks are for you, but they are not the only sources of artificial sweetener that you need to watch out for.

From the artificial sweeteners you use in your coffee to the hidden artificial sweeteners in low-calorie sweet treats, it’s time to toss these dangerous chemicals and to start embracing healthy sweet alternatives.

Check labels for aspartame and sucralose and get rid of them right away. Opt instead for pure honey, maple syrup, or even stevia when you need a little something sweet.
