Even the US Centers for Disease Prevention and Control is on their side:

“You can enjoy your favorite foods even if they are high in calories, fat or added sugars. The key is eating them only once in a while, and balancing them out with healthier foods and more physical activity.” (4)

Similarly, this was published by the American Heart Association:

“You can use sugars to help enhance your diet. Adding a limited amount of sugar to improve the taste of foods (especially for children) that provide important nutrients, such as whole-grain cereal, low-fat milk or yogurt, is better than eating nutrient-poor, highly sweetened foods.” (5)

“We recommend choosing zero-calorie or very low-calorie drinks. This includes:

  • Water
  • Unsweetened teas
  • Coffee
  • Diet soda
  • Other low-calorie drinks and drink mixes” (6)

And a joint statement from the American Heart and American Diabetes Associations:

  • “Substituting non-nutritive sweeteners for sugars added to foods and beverages may help people reach and maintain a healthy body weight – as long as the substitution doesn’t lead to eating additional calories later as ‘compensation’.
  • For people with diabetes, non-nutritive sweeteners used alone or in foods and beverages remain an option and when used appropriately can aid in glucose control.” (7)
