According to a 2017 report in the Journal of Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics found that 25% of American children and over 41% of American adults use artificial sweeteners. Artificial sweeteners are compounds that offer the sweetness of sugar without the same calories. Each gram of table sugar contains 4 calories. On the other hand, artificial sweeteners have zero calories per gram.

Artificial sweeteners can serve a definite purpose in weight loss. Artificial sweeteners enable people that are either carb-, sugar-, or calorie-conscious to take in a wider range of foods that they would either not be allowed to eat or could only eat in such small amounts.

Here is a list of some well-known artificial sweeteners:

• Acesulfame Potassium (Sunett, Sweet One)
• Aspartame (NutraSweet, Equal, Advantame)
• Neotame (Newtame)
• Sucralose (Splenda)
• Stevia
• Swee tLeaf
• Truvia
• Pure Via
• Sweet ‘N Low

Remember, the real key to weight loss is cutting calories. Artificial sweeteners allow people to stick to a healthy diet for a longer period of time because artificial sweeteners don’t count as a carbohydrate, a fat, or any other exchange.
