    In addition to diet soda, I found that Greek Yogurt packs on the pounds (at least for me).

    The JJ Virgin diet also says that artificial sugars throw the body out of wack.

    I think that the actual product does not make you gain weight, since there are no actual calories in it, but it does create those cravings and people tend to drink them A LOT. But the advice is warranted and should be considered by some since many do consume it more than one should.

    This would explain why I have continued to gain weight over the past few years while not eating any more than I always have done (and remaining the same level of activity). thanks!!

    Awesome!! My niece did the same thing and lost more than 40 lbs.

    Good idea. The aspartame and other artificial sweeteners have been shown to stimulate actual sugar cravings, probably because your brain is temporarily tricked into thinking you're actually ingesting sugar, then figures out there's no sugar absent, but a craving for the real thing remains.

There are studies showing people actually gain weight while ingesting foods/drinks with artificial sweeteners. Plus, why load up the body with something unnatural?

    Maybe I will try that then!
