In a recent Q&A with Obesity Management journal, registered dietician and consultant to the Aspartame Resource Center Gail Frank, PhD, RD, discussed her expert thoughts on how incorporating low-calorie sweeteners like aspartame may help overweight and obese individuals achieve and maintain a healthful diet. Dr. Frank provided her insight on sweeteners and dispelled myths about the safety of aspartame, noting "Unless people are willing to correct their thinking and eating behavior, they will use myths as one reason for being overweight and never succeed at losing weight, which is a deadly disease itself." She also referenced a recent NIH-AARP study, which was one more addition to the broad body of scientific evidence confirming the safety of aspartame.
