Tricking Your Brain on Artificial Sweeteners

Artificial sweeteners may set the stage for diabetes in some people by hampering how their bodies handle sugar, scientists say. (Sam Hodgson/Reuters)

Artificial sweetners are believed to be a good alternative for lowering your blood sugars for metabolic conditions and a good plan for weight loss and/or avoiding weight gain.

You have it all wrong!

Researchers report that artificial sweeteners increase the blood sugar levels in both mice and humans by interfering with microbes in the gut.Increased blood sugar levels are an early indicator of Type 2 diabetes and metabolic disease.

ok, Aspartame and other artificial sweeteners do satisfy the sweet tooth without what is called the ”extra calories”, however on the contrary, it is actually increasing your caloric consumption, your appetite and your weight.

Recent studies have proven that detrimental effects of artificial sugar consumption can cancel out any benefits they may have for weight loss. This is due to both a mental and physiological response to eating artificial sweeteners.

According to Clinical dietitian Jamie Yacoub, M.P.H., R.D.,

  1. when you eat foods sweetened with artificial sweetener, you actually tend to eat larger portions to compensate. You allow yourself to have more, forgetting that still contain calories in the form of carbohyfrates, fat and protein.
  2. Artificial sweeteners increase your appetite for sweets and carbohydrates.
  3. Artificial sweeteners are often used in carbohydrate-filles foods

Further research suggests that drinking diet soda could cause weight gain.

Artificial sweeteners may exacerbate, rather than prevent, metabolic disorders such as Type 2 diabetes, a study suggests.

Studies have included various experiments with mice which demonstrated how obesity is related to a gut bacteria that affects glucose tolerance, leading to weight gain instead of the believed weight loss in these non-caloric sweeteners.

The data indicate that artificial sweeteners “may contribute to, rather than alleviate, obesity-related metabolic conditions, by altering the composition and function of bacterial populations in the gut,” Cathryn Nagler and Taylor Feehley of the pathology department at the University of Chicago said in a journal commentary.

PLEASE, PLEASE ,PLEASE, Reconsider your choices, and take your health seriously.

Organic Milk: The Healthier Fat

Many organic foods are concerned to be illegitimate or their health effects are not as clear. Well organic milk is the contrary as studies show.

Eating organic milk helps you dodge some of the heart illnesses as it contains more omega 3 & less of the omega 6 which is also used for fried food resulting in more heart disease, diabetes and inflammation.

Omega 3 keeps you healthier and more nutritious.

”On average, organic milk contained 25 percent fewer of the omega-6 fatty acids … Organic milk was also 62 percent richer in the omega-3 fatty acids believed to be at least partly responsible for the healthful effects of eating fish, beans and many vegetables.” The Seattle Times

Another fact about milk is that due to high calories and fat and high levels of “bad” cholesterol associated with heart disease, it I’d discouraged to drink while milk.

So moral of the story is: drinking milk is good, but be particular in the type of milk you drink.

Make sure to watch these videos before you continue… Absolutely follow the following instruction and you will understand why it is very crucial you do this.

This seems about right …. right?

Wrong!

This is unfortunately the sad reality where people are constantly being misled in their health. advertisement, campaigns and false information. “A new Coca-Cola ad campaign focuses on the mistaken belief that beating obesity is a matter of counting calories. All calories are NOT the same, and obesity is the result of consuming too many of the wrong type of calories” This in fact is true.

NOW…. Watch the following video which clearly demonstrates the HONEST reality:

It comes to show how we can so easily be fooled to believe anything they want us to believe…

Does it make sense of how something with such high sugar taste can be 0 CALORIES? Some fall in the group of people that IGNORE to question unnatural “advertisement” because maybe it’s just easier and more convenient to believe than the truth. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE…

Please be aware and ask questions when things do not make sense and be sure not to be fooled by such easily altered Realities. As you see, Altering realities is very possible and easy. Don’t be easily fooled. You have a mind, use it!

“DIET” Sodas Is Not A Diet!

This concept is something I have been trying to influence on people around me for years. Diet Soda Does NOT mean you will not gain weight from it. Just because it has 0 calories does not mean it is DIET. Truth it, it does not make sense how something so sweet can have 0 Calories.

If its too good to be true, ITS NOT TRUE!

So here it is, if you don’t care about your health, at least care about the disappointment you will get out of this video, or at least I hope you do. If you want to ignore what is said and continue, then at least I tried. But I do hope that I can at least influence some, as this topic is one that I am passionate about! I see people around me always drinking these Diet sodas, and they really have it all wrong.

People trust these labels, denying all aspartame intake, so Please watch this video and I hope it will cause you to change your habits, because not only does aspartame cause cancer but it really has none of the positive effects (weight gain avoidance or weight loss) that many believe.
