CBS: New study is wake-up call for diet soda drinkers

It sure woke me up right away when I read this. I may not be a diet sodaholic, but I drink it on several occasions with the thought in the back of my mind that it is good for weight control.

Now it so turns out that the artificial sweeteners don't do the trick; they lack something which prods the brain in to thinking the stomach is full. In other words; they don't decrease your appetite.

They simply add more calories to your daily food intake. Even though they are less in calories then the products with sugar in them, if they don't fill you up you keep on feeding the hunger monster. That sure defeats the purpose of the 'diet' products.

Here is more food for thought; if those artificial sweeteners don't signal the brain that the tummy is full then we probably ought to question all the other products with the same ingredients in it as well.

On the plus side, I also read MSNBC: Coffee buzz protects brain from Alzheimer's. That is good news.

At least we will remember that nothing beats the real deal!
