On about November 14, 2018, I put a post stating I would refrain from diet soda for 60 days. In reading the post today, I noticed an error stating I was going to start on October 16, 2018. I actually started on November 16, 2018. Except for Thanksgiving Day, I have stayed with the plan. A little background: In the past, when I have tried recommended dietary changes, I have felt no difference. That is the case this time. I have replaced the diet soda with unsweetened iced tea which I brew in quantity and store in the refrigerator. For the first week, I missed the diet soda, but now I am fine without it.
On about November 26, 2018, I started on the Carbohydrate-Insulin Model diet. The information stated there would be an adaption period of weeks. The adaption period would be weakness and lower energy. I am going through that right now and my endurance in cardio activities has been significantly reduced. I am going to hang in there at least until the 60 days of the diet soda fast is up. I will give you an update then.
