Most artificial sweeteners, particularly aspartame, bother me with a range of symptoms so I avoid them as much as possible. Fruit and regular sugar don't seem to affect me the same way, but I avoid added sugars whenever possible. I love to bake though, so I am forever testing to see how much I can reduce a recipe's sugar before it affects the chemistry.
