In a perfect world we would all be our goal weight and all calories would be free, or at least less destructive to our waistline. The past 25 years, however, have seen a dramatic increase in the consumption of artificial sweeteners in foods and drinks, including those containing sucralose, aspartame, saccharin, etc. Despite the superficial logic that consuming fewer calories will lead to weight loss, the evidence is very clear that using artificial sweeteners can, paradoxically, cause weight gain.
