insulin causes weight gain. Attempting to diet full scale with taking insulin is fruitless. The normal eliminating of sugar products along with soda makes good sense health wise too.

The pharmaceutical industry in the fattening up of America by prescription drugs especially mind drugs for political reasons is damaging to the child or parent on with the excuse of over eating or selecting the wrong types of foods. The prescription drugs are 90 percent at fault for weight gain.

Do not take imitation sweetners as they create other health problem.

The punishing of employees for weight gain while taking pharmaceutical drugs should be addressed and pharmaceutical industries should be sued for the emotional and damaging problems of their products..

Extensive research conducted over decades has repeatedly reaffirmed the safety and efficacy of diet soft drinks and low-calorie sweeteners as a tool for weight loss and management.

Here are a few facts on what the body of science has proven time and again. First, the myth that diet beverages trigger an increased preference for sweet foods and beverages has been directly debunked by numerous studies, including this one published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition: http://bit.ly/Ik4zjC . Second, low-calorie sweeteners are approved by more than 100 regulatory agencies around the world. Why? Because the body of science makes clear they are safe for human consumption, as recently verified again by the European Food Safety Authority with respect to aspartame specifically. And, third, leading health organizations including the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the American Diabetes Association condone the use of these products.

In other words, across the board, diet beverages and low-calorie sweeteners continue to receive widespread approval – meaning consumers can enjoy them with confidence.
