I could not find the AWA forum...so i am posting it here... Can some one help me criticize the argument of Sugar Vs Aspartame? I can't seem to think of assumptions that undermine the argument.

Here's the passage for the benefit of those who don't have OG 11.

â€œPeople who use the artificial sweetener aspartame are better off consuming sugar, since aspartame can actually contribute to weight gain rather than weight loss. For example, high levels of aspartame have been shown to trigger a craving for food by depleting the brain of a chemical that registers satiety, or the sense of being full. Furthermore, studies suggest that sugar, if consumed after at least 45 minutes of continuous exercise, actually enhance the bodyâ€™s ability to burn fat. Consequently, those who drink aspartame-sweetened juices after exercise will also lose this calorie-burning benefit. Thus it appears that people consuming aspartame rather than sugar are likely to achieve their dietary goals.â€
