Aiming to Lose Weight? Try this Weight Loss Technique as WHO Suggests


After a systematic review of over 280 studies, WHO issues a recommendation on the use of artificial sweeteners among adults. For those who are aiming to lose weight, they must avoid zero-calorie sweeteners, as the WHO recommends.

Sugar-free Sweeteners Aren’t as Effective to Lose Weight

In attempts to tackle obesity concerns, people are using non-sugar sweeteners, an ingredient which has become common in foods such as diet foods, soft drinks and so on. Although most artificial sweeteners have been deemed safe by federal regulatory agencies such as the US Food and Drug Administration, little is known about the long-term health effects.

“However, switching to non-sugar sweeteners seldom contributes to long-term weight control. One must consider alternative means to reduce sugar intake, such as eating fruits, or unsweetened foods and drinks,” suggests WHO’s Executive Director for Nutrition and Food Security.

The Key is to Use No Sweetener at All

In general, the healthiest sweetener is no sweetener at all. The American Heart Association recommends dramatically reducing the amount of added sugar in your daily diet and focusing on more whole foods, such as a variety of fruits and vegetables, to reduce your risk of obesity and heart disease.

The U.S. Dietary Guidelines currently recommend that Americans ages 2 and older limit their intake of added sugars to less than 10 percent of  daily calories, or about four teaspoons for someone eating a 2,000-calorie diet. It is not recommended to add sugars to the food of children under 2 years of age.
