Save Calories, Lose Weight

The American Diabetes Association and the American Heart Association evaluated six calorie-free sweeteners: sucralose (Splenda), acesulfame potassium, neotame (made by NutraSweet), saccharin (Sweet'N Low), aspartame (Equal or NutraSweet), and stevia.  They concluded that the use of these calorie-free sweeteners was beneficial in reducing added sugar consumption, reducing total calories, and helping with weight loss or weight management.  The statement also mentioned that over consuming other foods would have a negative affect on the benefits of using the calorie-free sweeteners.  In other words, just because you are using them doesn't mean you can eat like a wild-man!
