I personally haven't observed any difference in blood sugar, cravings or that sort of thing brought on by my AS use. If I eat even a tiny mandarin orange (I no longer do) my body screams "that's SUGAR!" and wants me to face-plant into the bowl to get at the rest. Same for one slice of watermelon. Super sweet artificially sweetened stuff? Nope. It knows somehow that stuff's not real and isn't tempted to go off the rails. YMMV.

What I do on Facebook when in these discussions of "AS raises insulin and blood glucose" is post a photo of Dr Richard Bernstein, an 85 year old T1 diabetic, holding a can of Diet Sunkist orange soda in front of his face.
