“Artificial sweeteners are low-calorie or calorie-free chemical substances that are used instead of sugar to sweeten foods and drinks”. They are found in thousands of products, from drinks, desserts and ready meals, to cakes, chewing gum and toothpaste.

A weight loss study, published on July 17, from the Canadian Medical Association Journal found that one ingredient many of us eat every day could be making us fat.

The report found artificial sweeteners may be associated with long-term weight gain and increased risk of obesity.

And not only will they scupper your weight loss aspirations, they can also increase your risk of diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease, according to the new study.

Cutting foods high in these artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, neotame, saccharin and sucralose is one simply way to keep off the pounds.

We should be careful of the foods they consume in terms of sweeteners, as it’s not just the obvious fizzy drinks and sweets that have them.

Researchers from George Washington University found three-quarters of packaged foods have artificial sweeteners inside.

They include ketchup, whole-wheat bread, greek yoghurt,  cereal and sugar-free chewing gum.

So make sure you thoroughly read packets to stay away from the artificial sweeteners.

However, the new research indicates that artificial sweeteners may have negative effects on metabolism, gut bacteria and appetite.

Author Dr. Ryan Zarychanski said: “"We found that data from clinical trials do not clearly support the intended benefits of artificial sweeteners for weight management."

Dr. Meghan Azad added: "Given the widespread and increasing use of artificial sweeteners, and the current epidemic of obesity and related diseases, more research is needed to determine the long-term risks and benefits of these products.”
