Sweeteners May Help People Control Body Weight

 

Substituting other sweeteners for added sugars in beverages and other foods could have beneficial effects. Reseachers in the U.S. found that artificial sweeteners can help people lose excess body weight.

Aspartame, acesulfame-K, neotame, saccharin, sucralose and plant-derived stevia can also help diabetics control their blood sugar.

"While they are not magic bullets, smart use of non-nutritive sweeteners could help you reduce added sugars in your diet, therefore lowering the number of calories you eat," Christopher Gardner, associate professor of medicine says.

this is the EXACT OPPOSITE of what some experts are saying! Others have been saying the body reacts to artificial sweeteners as if they are sugar! How about you guys figure it out and get back to us?

Most of those sweeteners also increase your appetite so it is a two edged sword.

The body certainly DOES NOT react to artificial sweeteners as if they were sugar. There is no evidence to support that claim.
