  • In a study by the University of Sydney, fruit flies were fed either a diet of yeast and sucrose or one with the synthetic sweetener sucralose, used in a variety of low-calorie foods. Flies on the artificial sweetener consumed 30% more calories than those on the real sugar diet.

  • After seven days on a sucralose diet, mice showed a 50 percent increase in food consumption, partly due to the activity of a neurotransmitter called neuropeptide Y that drives hunger during fasting.

  • But none of this is to say doctors should start recommending that people give up artificially sweetened food in favor of sugary alternatives; excess sugar intake comes with its own set of ills. 

Just think of it this way - eating everything in moderation is your best bet.
