From “The IF Life”: Are Diet Sodas Making You Gain Weight?

Many may say that weight gain is caused because of increased cravings and the sugar response of the brain from the artificial sweeteners (which may or may not be true). But if you start to see that weight gain around the face and center of the body (stomach especially) then there is another issue at heart. In fact if you are showing any signs of fatigue, headaches, muscle/join pain, loss of motivation….then you could be suffering from adrenal fatigue. . .

    I guess I can get my 100+ pullups, today, just from the WOD! How can we not do this in Erin’s honor with him all repping the horns like that?
    5:30pm to 8:30pm this is it.
    I will likely have a scaled version, available, as well.
