The benefits of zero calorie bbq sauce
You can eat more with the same calories
An average sauce is 60 calories per serving, which may not seem like a lot but if you are grilling up chicken and burgers all weekend long, those calories add up. Most people have more than one serving of their favorite barbecue sauce. Zero calorie sauces allow you to satisfy your appetite for more BBQ without blowing your diet.
Zero calorie bbq sauces are better for you.
Most commercial barbecue sauces are loaded with sugar and high fructose corn syrup, both of which are bad for you and your waistline. Most zero calorie sauces use either aspartame or sucralose as sweeteners. Both products have been extensively tested and approved by the FDA. They are proven to be safe and effective at reducing calories in foods. Some studies have even shown that artificial sweeteners help people lose weight faster when combined with a reduced calorie diet and regular exercise program.
If you don't like the taste of zero calorie anything, there is hope for you too. I'm sure we all know someone who doesn't like the flavor of artificial sweeteners and thinks they taste funny or fake.
