Our consultant was talking about this today, she said its more unhealthy to be overweight from masses of sugar than ingesting a small amount of asparatame of which we are only having a tiny bit, put my mind at ease

This does assume that someone is only having aspartame in moderation, which bluntly, a lot of people aren't who follow SW.

There are people who put canderel in their tea or coffee, have no added sugar squash, or diet coke all day. Plus a few mullerlights to keep them going. Then an options in the evening.

Surely it would be better to use a smaller amount of sugar & syn it than eat & drink all this?

Personally i think so! I dont drink tea coffee apart from green tea, i very rarely drink fizzy stuff! The only thing i have regularly is mullerlight. But in the morning i prefer to have sugar and syn it then use sweetener and keep it free and tbh the main reason is cos i hate the taste of sweetener! But in all fairness i have sweetener that has lucrose and not aspartame.

Yeah I try to avoid it as much as I can as well. I would prefer to sweeten with fruit or honey or just go without.

But it's all down to choice I guess. I'd rather not have any spread on toast than have the low fat stuff, but equally I wouldn't dream of using syns on actual oil & will use fry light for everything.

Fair point. I was worrying a bit as I have sweetener on my cereal and eat muller yogurts and have sweeteners in my tea. But then I think if it was that bad it would be off the market because so many people use it as an alternative now a days. Personal choice I suppose. I have to be in dire pain before ill turn to medication where as other will pop em like sweets...
