As it turns out, sugar isn’t all bad. The key is limiting your consumption of sugary foods, not finding artificial substitutes for them. While artificial sweeteners like Splenda are calorie free, they’re difficult for your body to break down and often suppress signals in your body that help you feel satisfied and full. If you need a good low calorie sweetener, consider honey. It’s all natural, low calorie, and helps sweeten foods without a lot of extra additives.
