    Data from RCTs showed no consistent effects of nonnutritive sweeteners on other measures of body composition and reported no further secondary outcomes.

    Weight on day of surgery: 318.4 lbs

    Aside from the fact that these kinds of meta-evaluation studies (studies of lots and lots and lots of studies done by others) provide correlational data and zip actual insights into actual causes and effects, here's my interpretation of this "finding": Overweight and obese people get very little exercise, drink lots of diet sodas, and eat more Halo Top ice cream than slim people do -- who eat the occasional regular ice cream cone, don't drink any sodas, and exercise daily.

    As a sample of one, my personal interpretation of this research finding certainly describes me, both pre- and post-WLS.

    My NUT and surgeon both said Splenda is ok to use. I don't use it much but do use it in my coffee daily.

    Isn't Stevia fine to use?
    Perhaps look at that if you're concerned about splenda et al.
    A co-worker of mine collapsed at his desk and was rushed to hospital with a suspected brain tumor. Turned out he had aspartame poisoning. It was really frightening, he drank diet iced tea every day and chewed sugar free gum but it wasn't like he was drinking it by the gallon. I don't touch the stuff now. I know people consume it for decades and are fine and that's great, but I also remember Sweet n Low used to have a warning on the label about it causing cancer in rats. I don't like the taste of artificial sweetener at all so that helps, there is science out there stating both sides of the story, in the end you've just got to do what you think is best for you.

    I think you have to move back to the farm like my mom and family 50-100 years ago and eat off the land. Other than that, we're screwed.
