The use of artificial sweeteners is a debated topic in the health community. The truth of the matter is that artificial sweeteners are not a better option than sugar when it comes to losing weight. These sweeteners “fake” your body’s digestive system into believing you are giving it calories when you’re actually not. This can increase your risk of type 2 diabetes and cause unwanted weight gain!
According to researchers from the University of Adelaide, giving your body fake sugar damages your ability to process real sugar properly and increases your post-meal glucose levels. Eventually, this means that when you eat natural sugar (in fruits, whole grains, veggies, etc.), your body won’t be able to properly use it, which can cause your body to become overwhelmed.
Today, LeAnn and Michalia are talking about why you should avoid artificial sweeteners and what other healthy yet sweet options you can choose.
