I use the occasional half packet of sweet n low on iced tea if it's particularly bad tea. Otherwise I don't bother and I don't drink soda of any kind, so I'm not worried about it.

Once again this entire discussion ignores the fact that is a large number of people who can't have sugar or must severely limit sugar for medical reasons. Not everyone eats or drinks lots of "sugary foods" in the first place and have no interest in the "diet drinks don't help loose weight" arena. I don't need to lose weight. I do however have to limit the sugar I eat for medical reasons and drinks are one of the easiest ways. However I don't want to drink everything unsweetened and in many cases, the only options (besides water) are "with sugar" or with "artificial sweeteners" Likethumb_up3

I recently started drinking Bai flavored water which has one gram of sugar per eight ounces.

Sweetness is not necessary for a happy life. Enjoy a slice of birthday cake occasionally, but for Gods sake give it up. 2000 years ago people were perfectly fine without it. It's a drug.

I always make it a point to back my Canadian Club with a sugar-free Molson's. I don't want to die young.

This is a very unclearly written article. Of course using Stevia doesn't cause me to lose weight, but it makes my coffee taste better. And while I gave up Aspartame and Splenda long ago, I've been reading articles like this for years waiting for someone to ascertain the safety of stevia without just lumping it in with the known dangers of artificial sweeteners. Still waiting.
