New research: Sugar substitutes help reduce caloric intake without overeating or hunger

A new study published in the August 2010 journal, Appetite, further demonstrates that people who consume low-calorie sweeteners (sugar substitutes) are able to significantly reduce their caloric intake and do not overeat. In fact, study participants who received the sugar substitutes instead of sugar consumed significantly fewer calories and there was no difference in hunger levels despite having fewer calories overall.

So which is it? I don't like sweet things either way, never did as a kid. I would make a salami and swiss sandwich with 1/2 cup of mustard on it for dessert.
