Foods To Avoid: Aspartame
Aspartame is not and won't ever be good for you - regardless of the zero-calorie label. The fake sweeteners wreak havoc on your blood sugar and can cause all kinds of metabolic abnormalities. The chemical compounds could even increase your risk of brain degeneration and Alzheimer's. If you're looking for a zero-calorie drink, consider one with no sweeteners or another more natural option - definitely go easy on the Diet Coke for now.
