Artificial sweeteners

Artificial sweeteners: A safe alternative to sugar?

People are consuming large amounts of sugar and refinedcarbohydrates as part of their daily diet. But in excess, sugar can take its toll. Eating large amounts of sugar and refined carbohydrates adds extra calories, which can cause weight gain and hormonal imbalance.. So many people opt for artificial sweeteners as a way to enjoy their favorite foods without as many calories. It is wrong.

What are artificial sweeteners?

Artificial sweeteners are chemicals  compounds that offer the sweetness of sugar without as many calories. Products made with artificial sweeteners have a much lower calorie count than do those made with sugar. Artificial sweeteners are often used by uneducated nutritionists as part of a weight-loss plan or as a means to control weight gain.

People with diabetes use artificial sweeteners because they think it makes food taste sweet without raising blood sugar levels (wrong)  But keep in mind that if you do have diabetes, some foods containing artificial sweeteners, such as sugar-free yogurt or refined carbohydrates, can still affect your blood sugar level. Some foods labeled sugar free such as sugar-free cookies and chocolates  contain sweeteners, such as sorbitol or mannitol, which contain calories and can affect your blood sugar level. Some sugar-free products may also contain refined flour, which will raise blood sugar levels. Also, remember that foods containing sugar substitutes may also contain calories that may undermine your ability to lose weight and control blood sugar.

For a healthy weight loss, artificial sweeteners  are not the solution.
