 Possibly it has to do with the use of aspartam in foods. I have heard
it has the effect of raising the baseline of the brains perception of
carbohydrate intake, thus over time one would crave more carbohydrate. I
have noiced a well know diet plan ,that has slowly modified its content
to increase the the carb. levels, I don't beleive tjis was for purely
economic reasons. Its would seem to be kind an addiction process.
 I don'yt know the ins and outs of this, but it seems to have some
validity in terms of the biochemistry of the substance. J.
