Here’s an article from Weighthacker about a study that suggests that diet soda causes humans to put on weight by disrupting the satiation process. I know for myself, I stopped drinking soda cold turkey in the summer of 2010 and shortly thereafter with no changes to diet or exercise I dropped 15 pounds. I then weened myself off of sweetening my coffee and now don’t sweeten anything with artificial or natural sweetener of any kind.
My anecdote is not any more than a single data point, but my experience is quite in line with this article.
