Here at Sip & Savor, we’ve written often on how low-calorie sweeteners can be an effective tool for weight loss and weight maintenance. A recent story from Boston shares one woman’s weight loss journey, partly achieved by switching to low-calorie sweeteners. Using low-calorie sweeteners in her beverages and cooking, she lost more than 100 pounds and has kept it off.

Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford, an obesity medicine physician at Massachusetts General Hospital, confirmed the safety of these sweeteners in the story stating - “We go through all the evidence that’s out there in the peer reviewed literature… And we find that there is nothing that definitely states that it causes any negative effects on your health overall.” Dr. Stanford added that for those who crave a little sweet in their diet, low-calorie sweeteners can help satisfy those cravings.
