When it comes to maintaining a healthy weight, all calories count, regardless of their source.  Science has shown that the key to maintaining a healthy weight is energy balance – balancing the calories you consume from all foods and beverages with the calories you burn through physical activity and exercise.  Some people who are trying to lose weight often choose low- or no-calorie beverages as a way to reduce their overall caloric intake. Some people even use low-calorie sweeteners similar to those found in thousands of foods and beverages in their cooking recipes.
