HealthWatch: How Sweeteners And Sleep Influence Weight Gain
BOSTON (CBS) – A new report shows inadequate sleep could be making you fat.

They also had lower levels of HDL or “good” cholesterol. While most of us do not get 9 hours of sleep a night, we should all strive to get at least 7 to 8.

Conclusion The study authors suggest artificial sweeteners may not aid weight loss, despite marketing claims to the contrary, and could actually increase the risk of type 2 diabetes. However, the results need to be treated with caution, as this review had numerous limitations: The randomised controlled trials had great variability and few participants, increasing the possibility of the results occurring by chance. They were also judged to be at a high risk of bias – for example, the participants could not be blinded to the intervention, and adherence (drop-out) rates were not provided.
