Do Sugar Substitutes Make Weight Loss Easier?
Most sugar substitutes contain virtually no calories and therefore do make weight loss easier when used as part of a calorie controlled diet.
In addition, some research shows that people who use sugar substitutes as part of their weight maintenance plan have a better success rate when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight.
However, there are contra-indications. Some weight loss studies have shown that the use of sugar substitutes as part of a weight loss diet does not lead to easier or greater weight loss.
Bottom line: The jury is still out on sugar substitutes and weight loss.
