Artificial Sweeteners

{mp3}680news – artificial sweeteners – april 2 2014{/mp3}

We are eating about double the sugar acceptable today which is one of the causes of obesity, leading to other chronic diseases such as diabetes type 2. So do you resort to artificial sweeteners? I advise not!

  • They can increase your appetite.  They whet your taste buds like sugar but aren’t as satisfying so you eat more.
  • Over time sweeteners dull your taste buds since they have multiple more sweetness than sugar and you’re less receptive to natural sugars such as in fruit. You will seek out sweeter foods.
  • Sweeteners can confuse your hormones.  When you eat artificially sweetened foods your body still releases insulin which can lead to sugar spikes which increases cravings.
  • This may one of the reasons there is a line between those that consume sweeteners and an increase in diabetes type 2.
