    • New study suggests that artificial sweeteners can increase fat accumulation

      So changing our diet to include low-calorie sweeteners, such as sucralose and aspartame, should be a good way to get all the sweet taste without any of the guilt. Instead, the new study suggests that eating these sweeteners could do the opposite and increase the chance of us accumulating fat in our bodies, in a “dose-dependent” fashion. In other words, the more artificial sweetener you consume, the more fat your body creates and stores.

      It's interesting that many low-carb diet advocates have been saying this for quite a few years, and we are only just starting to find the science behind why they were right all along.
