I must admit that I have not read the article you refer to. Seeing that artificial sweeteners do not contain any kilojoules I find this theory hard to believe. If you battle with overweight then it may help for you to consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will assess your diet and advise if you need to have tests for insulin resistance, etc, and give you a diet prescription worked out for your specific needs. Also keep in mind that aerobic exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for 30 or more minutes a day
will assist with weight loss.
