I am trying to cut aspartame and other artificial sweeteners from my diet. I am wondering if anyone has cut these out from their diet and has any tips. I'm trying to cut out the artificial sweeteners without having a high-sugar diet.

True that nothing beats fresh. I'm trying to go towards a "back-to-basics" real food diet, but it's been slow going. Yogurt is by far the biggest challenge for me - the low fat ones all use aspartame for the flavor/sweetener :(
That's great! Always nice to hear when people are taking better control of their lives by eating healthy and cutting out the fake product. Yes, low fat yogurts can definitely be tempting, but low fat doesn't always mean the best thing.
True. I eat a lot of yogurt, and since dairy is one of the few things that goes low fat simply by skimming off the fat instead of adding creepy chemicals I am definitely committed to lowfat, so I will be buying organic or plain unsweetened for now.
Yes it definitely is just one of many dangerous ingredients. I'm starting w/ the aspartame because I think it is the biggest culprit for me, then I'm going to try to cut other "danger" items from my diet after that.
