Absolutely YES!! Aspartame raises blood sugar levels. When blood sugar is too high, the pancreas releases insulin into the blood stream to regulate (lower) blood sugar. Blood sugar (glucose) plus insulin equals body fat. Raised blood sugar levels hinder weight loss and even cause weight gain.

Aspartame has many other side effects as well. It is made from a nasty combination of chemicals that should not be consumed by anyone who values their health. Many people who suffer from migraines find that they cease once they quit consuming aspartame and/or MSG.

Does aspartame stop the body from losing weight?

AnswerAspartame, an artificial sweetener, is approximately 200 times sweeter than sucrose, or table sugar. Due to this property, even though aspartame produces four kilo-calories of energy per gram when metabolized, the quantity of aspartame needed to produce a sweet taste is so small that its caloric contribution is negligible.The artificial sweetener aspartame has been the subject of several controversies since its initial approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1974.Potential health risks have been examined and dismissed by numerous scientific research projects. With the exception of the risk to those with phenylketonuria, aspartame is considered to be a safe food additive by governments, worldwide, and major health and food safety organizations.FDA officials describe aspartame as "one of the most thoroughly tested and studied food additives the agency has ever approved" and its safety as "clear cut".The weight of existing scientific evidence indicates that aspartame is safe as a non-nutritive sweetener.A 2007 medical review on the subject concluded that "the weight of existing scientific evidence indicates that aspartame is safe at current levels of consumption as a non-nutritive sweetener". However, because its breakdown products include phenylalanine, aspartame must be avoided by people with the genetic condition phenylketonuria (PKU).However, aspartame; on its own; has nothing to do with stopping body from losing weight.Since the caloric contribution of aspartame is negligible, it has been used as a means for weight loss through its role as a sugar substitute, with reviews finding that aspartame may aid in weight loss as part of a multidisciplinary weight loss program. On its own, aspartame is not known by medical literature to cause weight gain or weight loss. Although researchers have theorized that aspartame contributes to hunger or increases appetite psychologically, broad reviews and regulators conclude that aspartame has no appreciable effect on appetite.

Is there any ingredient in diet Pepsi that is bad for the body?

Yes. Aspartame. Aspartame was denied approval by the FDA eight times before being allowed as a dry sweetener ingredient in some products. The man who pushed to get it approved ignored that both of the experts he hired to research aspartame said that it was harmful to humans. The methyl alcohol in aspartame forms formaldehyde in your body. Recognize that substance.
