Well, I don't go to the extreme of provoking anyone.

I don't like the diet at all (hi, that's why I'm here) and I really don't like the faddish aspects of it. Much less the way people only hear "wow! I can eat all the bacon and sausage I want!? ROCK!"

However, if I see something that is advertised as "low-carb" or "atkins friendly", and it sounds like something I would eat...I'll eat it.

I am trying to lose some weight, and so I'm trying to cut calories. As a result, I tried some of the "low carb" milk (which actually wasn't so bad), but the fat content in it will keep me from doing it again. I do drink an excessive amount of soda, and for some bizarre reason, all of the artificial sweeteners bother me in one way or the other, so diet drinks are out, but (again with that bizaare reasoning), the "C2" and "Pepsi Edge" don't bother me, so I drink those.

But HOLY COW. Have you looked at the "nutritional information" for the "low carb" chocolates?!?! EEP! Pass me a Hershey's Special Dark *any* day! *faint*

But C2 and Pepsi Edge *do* have artificial sweeteners. Does the high fructose corn syrup maybe moderate the effect of the nutrasweet for you?

Possibly, though I hadn't thought of that as a reason.

I think it's Sucralose (splenda?), though, but yeah, I knew they had the artificials.

And high fructose corn syrup...holy smokes. They put that garbage in EVERYTHING these days (like, say, *bread*)

I think that Pepsi just uses splenda/sucralose, but Coke2 does have nutrasweet (evil syrup of Satan). I react badly to both nutrasweet and HFCS, so I can't imagine anything driving me to drink C2.

Have you tried Diet RC? I've just started seeing it in cans. It ONLY uses splenda, so there's no aftertaste or ill stomach effects like I've gotten with aspartame
