The non-nutritive sweetener sucralose is found in literally thousands of foods, most diet soft drinks are sweetened this way. The zero calories on the label signals that this food would help with weight loss, especially if it is being swapped for its full calorie version.
A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found otherwise. This randomized trial found that women, particularly obese women tended to eat more and have increased cravings after consuming sucralose when compared to sugar.
These findings are consistent with other findings in similar studies. While more study is needed, it would seem that especially for women, diet soft drinks should be a sometimes food, not consumed every day.
Water continues to be the number one way to RETHINK YOUR DRINK.
