The biggest selling point of Artificial Sweeteners is that they come with zero calories. On paper, this is supposed to help you cut some pounds, but in reality, that is not the story.
These sweeteners have the ability to mess your taste buds, digestion and even hormones. A combination of these three makes you hungrier. Over-eating is the natural result and rather than losing weight due to a zero-calorie food, we gain weight.
So to be on the safe side, it is better to avoid sweeteners and all the food items that use such sweeteners.
