A study by US researchers has revealed that artificial sweeteners
used in low-calorie drinks can actually pile on the pounds.
The study says sweeteners induce the body to think it is
about to get a rush of calories and when that does not happen, people are bound
to get hungry and overeat.
Some of the low-fat culprits include breakfast bars,
smoothies, salads and low-fat muffins.
So people who think
low calorie means low-fat think again - you may actually be inviting flab.
