    What have you heard about artificial sweeteners?

    I seem to constantly be putting Sweet-N-Low and Splenda in my coffee, oatmeal and other foods. Some people I work with claim that it's bad for me. What are your thoughts? Are there any good articles out there about them?

    Ive heard that one of the sweeteners may be carcinogenic. Another negative story was that a certain kind of sweetener may cause you to become hungrier later on by triggering an increase in insulin.

    Personally, I am skinny, so I avoid sweeteners, esp that I don't like their taste. Speaking of which, does anyone know of a good premixed protein drink that has sugar instead of a sweetener?
