Artificial Sweeteners Hurt Weight Loss

We have been brain washed that artificial sweeteners are a weight loss and dieters dream but are they really healthy for you body?


Artificial sweeteners for healthy nutrition is a lie.

There is so much evidence that artificial sweeteners interfere with your body's ability to monitor your calorie in take as the sweetness is causing people to overindulge in other sweet foods and beverages.

An example of this is thinking you are doing your body a favor and drinking a diet soft drink instead of a sugary beverage. It may be reduced in calories but the affect it could have on your body into wanted sweetener and more food. Researches believe the sweetness of certain foods are one of the reasons overweight and obesity have become a dramatic problem in the U.S.

Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have done the research and test to finally come to the conclusion while nothing being 100% proven that artificial sweeteners are unhealthy.

Millions of people consume these sweeteners like aspartame because of the amount of food they are contained in.

Aspartame sweeteners are in:

  • instant breakfasts
  • breath mints
  • cereals
  • sugar-free chewing gum
  • cocoa mixes
  • coffee beverages
  • frozen desserts
  • gelatin desserts
  • juice beverages
  • laxatives
  • multivitamins
  • milk drinks
  • pharmaceuticals and supplements, including over-the-counter medicines
  • shake mixes
  • soft drinks
  • tabletop sweeteners
  • tea beverages
  • instant teas and coffees
  • topping mixes
  • wine coolers
  • yogurt
However, aspartame's tainted history of approval and potentially toxic ingredients cast serious doubt on the safety of this sugar substitute. Furthermore, aspartame may actually increase your appetite.

I don't like aspartame, but it is in many diet drinks, so it is hard to avoid.
