  • Discuss effective weight-management strategies that incorporate low-calorie sweeteners.

Program Overview:

Weight management is a perpetual hot topic in scientific circles and the media. When it comes to the role of low-calorie sweeteners, research appears to be mixed. While some human studies have found low-calorie sweeteners help reduce caloric intake, others show no results. What’s more, a handful of animal studies suggest such sweeteners may actually promote appetite and weight gain.

Because research about the impact of low- and no-calorie sweeteners on appetite and food intake frequently appears in the news, health professionals must understand the research to make science-based recommendations that help consumers achieve or maintain a healthy weight.

In this activity, Dr. Adam Drewnowski, noted obesity researcher and Director of the Center for Public Health Nutrition and Nutritional Sciences at the University of Washington, reviews the latest science and clinical research on low-calorie sweeteners and their impact on diet, appetite and weight management. Robyn Flipse, a registered dietitian and cultural anthropologist, translates this science into practical applications for helping consumers manage their weight and overall health appropriately and effectively.
