If you think that cutting calories means a tasteless, boring diet, think again! By using aspartame-sweetened products in place of their full-calorie counterparts, you can easily reduce the amount of calories you consume on a daily basis without sacrificing taste. (With the increasing rates of overweight and obesity, this is good news for the many people trying to obtain a healthier weight.) A simple dietary change from a full-calorie product to an aspartame-sweetened product can make a difference in overall calorie intake, which can lead to weight loss when incorporated as part of an overall healthy, calorie-controlled diet and lifestyle.
You may be surprised to learn that cutting just 48 calories each day from the diet over the course of a year can lead to a five pound weight loss! Cutting 48 calories from your diet may be as simple as using one tablespoon of an aspartame-sweetened sugar substitute in place of one tablespoon of sugar in your coffee each day. And, with more than 6,000 aspartame-sweetened products on the market, there are a multitude of ways to enjoy your favorite foods and beverages with less calories. The calorie calculator above illustrates the number of calories that could be saved by using an aspartame-sweetened product in place of a similar full-calorie product. In some cases, the calorie savings are as great as 150 calories! (For more about how calorie intake to lose weight is related to body mass index and activity level, try the BMI Calculator.)
