I simply do not like any artificial sweeteners because every last one tastes bitter to me. Aspertame, sucralose, stevia - all are completely disgusting to me. My husband uses sweetener in his coffee, and so do my parents, and they are all doing pretty well losing weight, especially my dad and he consumes the most artificial sweetener of us all. I think he probably needs it the same way kaplods described.
