Diet Drinks Trick Brain, Leading to Weight Gain

The findings follow previous research showing expectant mothers who drink diet drinks are more likely to have overweight children, who are believed to develop a sweet tooth after being exposed to the artificial sweeteners in the womb. "Flavor, on the other hand, which occurs when taste and smell are integrated, is unique to particular energy sources (in nature), with preferences learned".

According to her, human bodies are evolved to use the available natural sources of energy efficiently, but, the modern food environment consists of energy sources that are not seen by the bodies before.
