Are you trying to reduce the amount of sugar in your diet to help support your weight loss and health goals? Wondering if artificial sweeteners are a good alternative or if they’re bad for you?
We’ve got you covered. We tapped Jenny Craig’s Registered Dietitian, Briana Rodriquez, to help explain what the current research says about artificial sweeteners, how they might impact your weight loss journey, and healthy choices you can make to support your health.
While sugar substitutes can either be synthetic or naturally derived, and referred to in numerous ways, we’ll refer to them simply as artificial sweeteners here. Remember to always consult your health care provider before making changes to your diet or starting a weight loss program.
