Ok but what if the liquid substance has no sugar; does the body treat it like sugar and make you fat anyway?
I feel you’re being unfairly criticized.
You’re entirely correct, artificial sweeteners can contribute to over eating.
The best possible drink you can have for refreshment is water.
My personal feeling is by using artificial sweeteners you are putting off conditioning yourself to be satisfied eating foods and snacks that are not sweet.
Once you’re used to not eating sweets in products anymore, whether they’re sweetened with sugar or artificial sweetener.
You then find it easier to turn away other sweet products, such as cakes and ice cream, and work yourself towards a life without added sugar of any kind.
I no longer have a desire to eat any type of desserts, loaded with sugar, donuts, ice cream, any type of cake whatsoever.
I’m perfectly happy now with the frozen yogurt bar or cup of no added sugar yogurt.
For the first time in my life, just in the last couple months, I even stopped adding a half teaspoon of sugar to my coffee. No artificial sweeteners no added sugars of any kind. It’s kind of funny it’s almost like human beings as animals corporations train the public to buy their products to fill a craving that they created. I no longer will give into that and I’m actually enjoying it.
Many people believe that artificial sweeteners can drive weight gain, despite being low in calories. This article takes a look at the evidence.
