Have you made a New Year’s resolution to lose weight this year? We’ll repeat our best weight-loss tips during the beginning of the year. Like this:
Is it a great idea to swap your sugary drinks for diet alternatives, with artificial sweeteners, when attempting to eat fewer calories and lose weight? Not necessarily.
It sounds reasonable, but it does not work all that well. Even artificial sweeteners tend to increase the urge to eat, and maintain sugar cravings (not something you want if you want to shed some pounds).
Does it sound overwhelming to quit not only added sugars, but also artificial sweeteners? This is mostly a temporary issue.

Unless you’re really addicted to sweet foods, then it can require much more effort to break free.
