Sweet News For Dieters

According to the Pennington Biomedical Research Center at Louisiana State University, sugar substitutes do not lead to hunger or overeating, as some have worried.  When volunteers were given a lab-formulated snack prepared with either aspartame (the sweetener in Equal) or stevia, they did not feel less full than a control group whose snack had real sugar.  Plus, the sugar-sub groups were no hungrier as the hours passed and, most important, did not eat more at later meals.

I personally, would still use sugar substitutes sparingly until more studies show the health risk and advantages of using these substitutues.
