Artificial Sweeteners make me PEEEEEE



Recommended Posts

Okay, so I love me some fake sugar, but it makes me pee like every half hour! I was reading that at least some of the artificial sweeteners are diuretics, but they are ALSO bladder irritants, so they are even more likely to cause you to run to the potty.

I also intersperse my diet juice/iced tea/crystal light with Water throughout the day and drink a ton, so it's a struggle.

Note: I'm not interested in your belief that aspartame/splenda/sucralose cause cancer or weight gain. Those theories have been fully debunked.

I drink a ton of Crystal Light Iced Tea, or store brands. I always have and I continue to do so. It tastes good and I get my fluids in with no problem.

I like some flavors of Hint Water.

Have you tried cold infusions? I tried a flavor from Bigelow and hated it. I've tried Twinnings and like those.

I can't say that I notice that drink mix has made me pee more.

I have NOOO problem getting liquids in.

I make herbal iced tea by boiling Water in a tea pot and pouring it over some tea bags in a carafe, then I put it in the fridge after steeping. Not sure if that's a cold infusion?

Hint water is okay but way too expensive to buy a single bottle of it and if you buy it in bulk it always has the flavors I don't like, like lemon.

I don't know if a cold infusion is the same as cold brew tea or not. I've seen both. The Twinnings cold infusion were more of whatever flavor was on the label (didn't taste alot like tea). The Biegelow tasted nothing like the listed flavors and way too much like herbal tea.

I agree Hint is expensive. I found it at my local Aldi but it still isn't cheap.

I like iced mint tea and iced peach herbal tea. I steep them hot, like how I've always made iced tea.
