Oh-Oh–Artificial Sweeteners Are Linked To Weight Gain—Not Weight Loss

Artificial sweeteners might seem like a low- or no-calorie way to enjoy sweet food and not gain weight. But a new study links them to the opposite. In the report, researchers analyzed 37 studies on artificial sweeteners to see if they were successful for weight management. Artificial sweeteners did not appear to help people lose weight. Instead, observational studies that looked at consumption over time suggested that people who regularly consumed them—by drinking one or more artificially-sweetened beverages a day—had a higher risk for health issues like weight gain, obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
