That is exactly what happens to me if I start using diet sodas or anything sweetened with aspartame/nutrasweet... I'm sensitive to it, bloat 2-4 pounds right in the stomach area. It's easy for my nutrasweet intake to jump when I am cutting back elsewhere, diet coke is everywhere. (Does not happen to me at all with splenda.) You might check the sugar free popsicles too. When I read labels and cut out nutrasweet, that bloat drops over the following week.

(I have had the hardest time staying off that stuff!)
