I believe that it was recommended in the Atkins diet that you limit the amount of artificial sweetners because they can fool the brain into thinking that they are sugars, but I think that Splenda was different. I don’t remember why. Atkins also said that the other sweetners like equal are particularly bad for migraine headache sufferers.

Interesting, there’s also a wide-spread consensus in the lo-carb community, or what’s left of it, that large amounts of artificial sweeteners would stall weight loss...which might be what this finding is about.
