26. Anecdotally, when I am essentially sugar (& artificial) sweetner
FREE, I do lose weight. And I certainly have experienced sweet cravings when I was consuming a lot of aspartame-sweetened soft drinks. I haven't used any sweetners in tea or coffee in 15 years, so I don't have a problem with that--it is, unfortunately, the convenience factor. One has to search for bottled teas with no sweetner and you certainly don't find them in vending machines. For me, it doesn't take much to kill a weeks worth of good habits--run out of the good stuff I bring from home to work one afternoon--and that diet coke starts calling.

I have a feeling that further research will show a physiological craving that develops among aspartame users (and probably sucralose as well)that the industry is well aware of... :shrug:
