Interesting information, I think this idea has been around for quite a while, linking diet pop to insulin spikes. I avoid sucralose for another reason. I discovered on a golf course with a bottle of "flavoured water" (flavoured and sweetened with sucralose, it turned out) that in addition to being calorie-free it is also a very effective fast-acting laxative.

Yes the "idea" has been around for a while, this is just the first in what will probably be a serious of studies that actually confirms it.

I WAS using that "Mio" brand water flavouring.....mostly because I find it hard in the winter to drink the water I need. I then realized what I was (well my guy helped me realize) and I read up.... :dropjaw:

Yeah, back to using lemon slices in the water.....on a side note, anyone want some "Mio"...I've got a few to give away.

I had bought some MIO recently as well, and was using it in my water bottle as a lunch beverage for work, then read the article. I kept on using it until the container was empty. I plan on carrying a vacuum bottle of skim milk for work from now on. I never did like the taste of Diet Whatever compared to the Real version, but MIO seemed ok.

You know what causes diabetes worse than diet pop? Being a fat ass. If diet pop helps you manage your macros properly, then have at 'er. I think this is more aimed at the "I'll have a Big Mac and a diet Coke" crowd.

What is actually healthier is treating regular pop w/regular ole sugar in it as a treat, as it used to be. Moderation rather than dangerous alternatives to "cheating".

I don't do simple sugars except moderate consumption of fruit. Diet pop is a way for me to break up the monotony of 4 liters of water a day. To each their own.

Diet pop has aspartame in it which is enough to make me steer clear of it.

Aspartame if the first ingredient in things like rat poison and fireworks. My stomach hurts just thinking about it! Gross.

Diet or regular pop isn't good for you in general. Even store bought juices have almost as much sugar in them as pop does.

Drink water or freshly squeezed juice.

If your stomach just "hurts", then you aren't drinking enough of it.
When things get bad, I take comfort in knowing they could always be worse.
