No. Some will argue the ingredients cause other issues(cancer) but it is not going to stop you from losing weight. If the candy is high in fat than it will.

    sugar free candy has just as many calories than regular candy and its is sweeten with artificial sweeteners, which cause cancer and other problems.
    but in the end it comes down to your calorie consumption. you could be eating 1200 cals of candy and still lose weight. if your bmr(basal metabolic rate) is higher than that ofcourse

    If it’s not sugar what makes it sweet? If they are some fruit sugars, ok.

    Think twice before taking these sugarfree candies. “Artificial sweeteners can cause dangerous toxic reactions in the human body”. Scientists beleive that “when a sweet taste primes the body for a calorie delivery that doesn’t occur, the body craves for even more sweets.” This can backfire by triggering artificial hunger, just like other artificial sugar substitutes, hence undermining the purpose of losing weight.
