I have recently removed all artificial sweeteners from my diet and have found that i have become significantly more clear headed. My memory and cognitive ability seem to have improved greatly.

Has any one else found anything similar when removing artificial sweeteners from their diet?

FYI: I was drink 8 diet sodas a day and chewing 3 packs of gum a day. All sweetened with Aspartame

lol damn 8 sodas! I'm only at 1 to 2 diet sodas a day. I have a hard time giving them up. But I have had the same worry that aspartame is really bad for ya. Interesting topic.

aspartame appears to be a tricky thing.

to begin with: normally your body knows when it has had enough sugar. Normally, when you drink a bottle of coca cola, your brains will tell you to stop, 'cause your body has had enough. (nevermind anything else the brains are saying, btw, in this condition) what aspartame does, is that it takes this natural warning away. So it could be you're drinking "light" stuff, but eating candy more than you would when drinking a regular coke

secondly: you don't want to know what they put in sodas to make sure that a) the taste of aspartame isn't too bad b) the thing tastes like somthing close to the original

normally I only drink water and tea, but I drink a regular coke from time to time cause it cleanses your stomach. people suffering from panic attacks/depression, often have intestinal problems (stomach aches, and further stadia of... well, you catch my drift), and a regular coke a day keeps a part of it away :)

and yes, I know the regular stuff is pure poison too, but hey, at least I know what I will be dying from!
