If you're going to go for a "low calorie" substitute, use a natural one like agave.

Agave syrup is mostly fructose. Ain't nothing "low calorie" about it. It's not a sugar substitute, it's sugar, period.

There's a traditional Mexican preparation whose name escapes me at the moment. They ferment the agave, then distill it: this process removes all of the harmful sugars, and leaves only the healthful components. You should check it out when you get a chance.

Actually, "Argo" gave the Guards more credit than they deserved. The movie threw in a lot of fictional Hollywood bullshit to make it look like the diplomats escaped with seconds to spare, with the Guards hot on their tails. In real life, the Guards were completely oblivious - they had no idea it happened until they saw it on TV.
