Sugar vs. Artificial sugar

Ok, I took some time out to watch Sugar: the bitter truth, and I get the biochemical influence of sugar on the body. I kicked sugared soda years ago, and drink lots of diet soda and crystal light all with artificial sweeteners of all kinds, but people say that those are still just as bad as the real thing. Can someone help with my understanding of that please? I do drink plain water, but it is so tasteless!

Thanks!!!

P.s. I was a science teacher, so I understand some chemistry if you need to use that!
