Products containing artificial sweeteners like most diet sodas, water flavorings, and low calorie desserts can be a useful tool for satisfying your sweet tooth while getting accustomed to your new transformation lifestyle.  

Because of this, they are completely allowed on the program.  Keep in mind that these products may have adverse long term side effects. Some have found that they can cause headaches and unwanted bloating. However, we always suggest that you eventually transition to flavoring your food and drinks with real, whole, natural food products.
