    That you should drink water like it's going out of fashion and that it doesn't count if it comes from anything other than plain water.

    1. Fat is bad for you.

    2. Simple carbohydrates aren't digested like sugar. (umm, that starts happening the second it goes in our mouth, as salivary amylase starts breaking down starch into....glucose molecules).

    Compared to sugar, they absolutely are better. Glucose+fructose in a hypercaloric state is linked to metabolic syndrome in the literature. I have yet to see a single peer-reviewed study that indicates deleterious effects of aspartame or sucralose at GRAS dosages.

    You should never eat foods made with Splenda (or practically anything other than lettuce...) because you'll get cancer.

    My favorite part was the argument between the vegan and the paleo eater. :drinker:
