Response to AAO (Reply #12)

Thu Feb 7, 2013, 05:30 PM

30. It fits with analysis from the Harvard Nurse study which found that diet soda

consumption is associated with weight gain and this led to further studies which found that artificial sweetners trigger an unhealthy response from the human digestive system. They seem to break the link between consumption of real sweets (sucrose, fructose, etc) and a triggering of satiation.

The theory there is that the body "learns" (incorrectly) that things which taste very sweet actually have no burnable calories.

Another analysis from the Harvard Nurse study data found that consumption of artificial sweetners (diet soda) can provoke a strong craving for real sweets and this in combination with the effect above is behind the mystery weight gain.
