Replacing Calories In Your Meal Plan With Sugar-Free Sweeteners

Experts used to believe that sugar-free products with zero-calorie sweeteners could make you want to eat more. The thinking behind this was that zero-calorie sweeteners raise the blood glucose levels and affect the hormone levels that lead your body to crave carbs. A recent study, however, has found that zero-calorie sweetened drinks have no more affect than water on hormones.

What Are Sugar-Free Sweeteners?

Sugar-free sweeteners are zero-calorie sugar substitutes made from a variety of different substances, such as herbs or sugars that have been modified by scientists so they are still sweet but don’t have any calories. Common types of sugar-free sweeteners include:

  • Sucralose brand name: Splenda
  • Nutrasweet brand name: Equal
  • Saccharin brand name: Sweet ‘N Low
  • Stevia brand name: Truvia
