    Do artificial sweeteners make you bloated?

    I usually drink coffee black, but if i want it a lil sweeter i'll add Equal (if it's a medium size coffee i use 4 Equals). I usually have 2-3 coffees/day.
    I worked at dunkin donuts a couple years ago & compared to other people, i don't think 4 is that much. Some people use like 10 Splenda's


    Does this still have any effect on bloating?

    re:artificial sweeteners

    my experience is that sugar alcohol is very gassy. yep, i said it.
    that too much splenda leads to more sweet cravings and i'm still undecided on stevia...hoping it's ok.
    oh, i also tried "Zero" in the natural food section, and wow, that did not agree with me.

    It's largely individual. I never had a problem and I've used artificial sweeteners on everything from coffee to tilapia (you do weird things during contest prep). Some people can't stomach it, but I'm lucky enough to have no issues whatsoever.

    maybe that's what's going on with me, later in the day I get a crampy bloat.
    I drink flavored water all day and my protein bar has sugar alcohols in it

    maybe I should lay off the flavored water so much

    I have tonnes of sweetner, and am sometimes quite bloated (I also have heaps to drink, loads of salt and fibre, which apparently all cause some kind of bloating also). It doesn't really bother me though!
