The energy drink industry has millions of people convinced that by chugging one of their diet drinks (with Aspartame) you get that boost you’re seeking plus keep weight gain to a minimum.

Did you know that Aspartame is an excitatory neurotoxin? That means it’s toxic to your brain in a “spaz out” kind of way. Also, studies have proven that people do not lose weight as a result of consuming artificial sweeteners; in fact, the brain senses sweetness on the tongue, which then signals the pancreas to secrete insulin.  When there are no carbohydrates in the bloodstream to break down, the brain signals the appetite center to crave food for the insulin to work on; hence consumption of unwanted carbohydrates typically follows anyway.
