  • I drank them through BOTH pregnancies after a work out & My Dr knew & didn't say anything. But my trainer just found out from his wife's OB (they're due in Oct) that it's a I really dunno. I guess err on the side of caution & don't do it....

  • yes you can, but like with anything else, and especially artificial sweeteners (in lab rats they had SIGNIFICANTLY higher rates of illness, especially thyroid, and cancer in their young compared to those who did not get the sweeteners. Specifically aspertame *nutrasweet*) use with discretion.
