Crashing Your Diet With Soda
avoid soda even diet soda... here's why

The average American guzzles nearly a full gallon of soda every week. Why is that so bad? A recent study found that drinking one to two sodas per day increases your chances of being overweight or obese by nearly 33 percent. And diet soda is no better. When researchers tracked a group of elderly subjects for nearly a decade, they found that compared to nondrinkers, those who drank two or more diet sodas a day watched their waistlines increase five times faster. The researchers theorize that the artificial sweeteners trigger appetite cues, causing you to unconsciously eat more at subsequent meals.

We suggest you make your own soda. Have you ever heard of Soda Stream? Check it out. They are super easy to use and can save you a bundle of money and weight. You can use the juice of lemons, limes, cranberries.. almost anything and then add a pinch of a tablespoon of Fructevia, Steviva Blend or a tiny dash to taste of Stevia. Walla! You have sugar free soda that won't effect your appetite or blood sugar.

Have an excellent day.

Low Carb, Gluten Free, Low Glycemic, No Added Sugar, Diabetic Safe Rhubarb Simple Syrup
Ala Low Carb, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free, Diabetic safe, no added sugar, made with stevia
Total Servings 36
Serving Size 2 tablespoons
Carbs Per Serving: 4.4 g
Prep Time:<20 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

This is a very simple recipe that is perfect to add to ice tea, homemade soda, artisan cocktails, punch, fruit salads and even plain yogurt.

5 ounces rhubarb, washed and cut into 1/2-inch chunks (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup Fructevia, Steviva Blend or a tiny dash to taste of Stevia
1 1/4 cups water
1/8 teaspoon Xanthan Gum

Combine all of the ingredients in a small saucepan and stir. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Once the mixture boils, reduce the heat to low and simmer until the rhubarb is falling apart and the color has bled into the syrup, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Remove from the heat and, using a fine-mesh strainer, strain and discard the rhubarb solids.

Bring back to a boil and slowly add in the Xanthan Gum. This will give this syrup a rich full body.

Let the syrup cool to room temperature, then transfer it to a resealable container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
