Drinks sweetened with low- or no-calorie sweeteners, such as Diet Coke, will not stimulate your appetite or make you gain weight. In fact, studies show that after enjoying drinks sweetened with low- and no-calorie sweeteners, we have the same hunger reaction as we do after drinking water.

Research has shown that those of us who use low-calorie products tend to have high-quality diets. Food and drinks containing low- and no-calorie sweeteners can help us to manage our energy (calorie) intake and, if used consistently to reduce calories, can help us manage body weight.
