How do artificial sweeteners fit into the Zone?
Some artificial sweeteners are better than others. We do not recommend the use of many artificial sweeteners as they can stimulate insulin. Fortunately, there are some sweeteners that have a place in the Zone, Sucralose is a good Zone sweetener. It has no carbohydrate calories and it has little or no effect on insulin.
