Are you using artificial sweeteners in an effort to control of your weight? In that case, here is something you ought to know. No-calorie sweeteners can affect people’s diet choices over a period of time, according to a new research. For the study, researchers conducted three experiments in which 116 participants’ ages 18 to 25 were randomly given an unmarked cup filled with a diet soda, a regular soda or water. Researchers then measured their cognition, snack choices and responses to sugary food. It was seen that people consuming sugary beverages don’t compensate for the high caloric content in the beverage. Those who drink sugary drinks do not feel as full as if they had eaten the same calories from solid food and therefore assume that they have not added on any calories. The overall result of the study showed that having artificially sweetened beverages has a lot of negative impact. And, also with time it can influence the diet choices one makes which actually results in weight gain rather than loss.
