Sugar substitutes do help with weight loss; sugar substitutes don’t help with weight loss. Sugar substitutes are harmless; sugar substitutes are unhealthy. The information on sugar substitutes or, as they're often called, zero-calorie artificial sweeteners like Splenda, aspartame (Equal or NutraSweet), saccharin (Sweet 'N Low), and Acesulfame K is so conflicting that it can make your head spin. What's the truth?

I can only tell you what I know from looking at all of the available evidence. As far as safety goes, there are no long-term human studies on these food additives, so it's difficult to tell whether or not they have any lasting harmful effects. Currently, they are still considered safe by the FDA. Other health watchdog organizations such as the Center for Science in the Public Interest have given the nod to some of the artificial sweeteners, like Splenda, but not to all of them. I'm going to continue to monitor the science on both sides of the sugar substitutes debate, and you can watch for updates on my website as news comes in.

Whether or not sugar substitutes can help you lose weight is an entirely different question. I think that for some people they can, and many of my clients make the choice to keep them in their diet. I personally don’t like the taste of sugar substitutes, so when I want something sweet, I eat something made with fruit or even real sugar. Being very active helps me get away with it. But I realize that if you can't afford the calories and feel that only something sweet will satisfy you, sugar substitutes can help. Most people have grown up with and become accustomed to very sweet foods, which makes it hard to drop them out of your diet overnight. Sugar substitutes can help bridge the gap while taking out the calories that are preventing you from loosing weight.

Foods and beverages that contain sugar substitutes sometimes say so right up front or are called diet, light (or lite ), or sugar free. If you do decide to consume foods or beverages that contain sugar substitutes, be judicious about it. Part of working toward the diet that’s going to allow you to keep weight off is changing your taste preferences; having artificially sweetened foods and drinks all day long isn’t going to help you lose your taste for sugar. While ultimately the healthiest diet is a diet that's built on all-natural foods free from any type of additives, including sugar substitutes, I know that it's not always easy to eat perfectly and that change doesn’t happen overnight. Work toward having the most wholesome diet possible, letting sugar substitutes help you along when necessary, but keeping them to a minimum.
