Artifical Sweeteners Can Make You Fat

Researchers at Purdue University have found that consuming artificial sweeteners, such as saccharin may impair your body's natural ability to monitor the number of calories you are consuming. The researchers found that we have an unconscious ability to control the number of calories you consume which helps to control overeating. Artificial sweeteners cause us to lose that ability.

The rats in this study ate three times as much food when they had drinks sweetened with saccharin vs. when they were given drinks sweetened with real sugar. So...anybody for a Super Big Gulp at 7/11?
