I have read other articles about non calorie sweeteners and do agree that your brain puts out the sugar alert, but I don't agree that using sweetners makes one eat more.
I have been drinking diet beverages for decades along with using sweetners in coffee, tea, etc. and have never had any ill effect from them.
In fact while I have a few pounds to lose i really can't imagine what I would weigh if I didn't use them. A 480 calorie 42 oz. coca a cola makes no sense to me when you can get the same for zero calories.
