More and more often people are seen choosing light and zero especially so as not to gain weight but the results speak for themselves:
sweetened drinks make you fat, despite zero calories.
It’s a classic scene, my dieting friends avoid ordering a beer and resign themselves to a Coke light.
The truth is that lunch or dinner, aperitif or snack, no juices, no sugary drinks, and – for goodness sake – no wine only water, but the temptation of a zero drink is there and advertising is powerful, the nutritional tags are powerful, read zero, zero, zero, cabbage that cool and instead NO! , because if aspartame does not do, at least not in large doses, you also know that it makes you fat.
The reasons vary from sweetener to sweetener.
As several studies have hypothesized in recent years, (the last one being from the American Diabetes Association’s) one suspects that that “fake” sweet deception not only the palate but also the brain but when we take something sweet our body expects calories that don’t actually arrive.
As a reaction, metabolism converts the sugar already in circulation into fat,convinced that the calories needed to give us energy have just been fed.
As a result then, you are more hungry and several times a day and convert the sugar you have in your body into fat.
There is also another theory about the psychological aspect where since you think you have avoided calories, you are unknowingly more tolerant (a kind of justification) to eat something extra.
Now, maybe you don’t know that aspartame is sometimes added to the diet of pigs to maximize the absorption of everything they eat, resulting in accelerating the growth of fat mass.
If EFSA has stated that it is difficult to take doses that harm our health, it still seems to me one more reason to avoid taking it.
You can still say,“But if it doesn’t have calories, how does it make me fat?”
I know that this is the question you usually ask yourself when you use artificial sweeteners in coffee or natural without calories, sugar-free sweets or zero or light drinks because you definitely heard that they make you fat is you thought you’d like to feel something sweet in your diet, as well as making ten coffees to get hungry.
Yet that’s the case despite strong zero-calorie marketing, but sweetenersmake you fat – whether they’re artificial sweeteners or natural sweeteners.
Now as you have understood the reasons are many but I want to remember three in particular:
- As several studies have hypothesized in recent years, (the last one being from the American Diabetes Association’s) one suspects that that “fake” sweet deception not only the palate but also the brain but when we take something sweet our body expects calories that don’t actually arrive. As a reaction, metabolism converts the sugar already in circulation into fat,convinced that the calories needed to give us energy have just been fed.
- Zero-calorie sweeteners can cause metabolic disorders: each sweet taste corresponds to a change in blood sugar, which in turn corresponds to a variation of insulin, in short, must give something in terms of glucids, what the body expects. The moment we give something sweet that corresponds to zero nutritional power and zero glucid power, the body is “deceived” and some researchers have found that all zero calorie sweeteners cause an alteration of the sense of hunger, an increase in nervous hunger and especially hunger for sugars, prompting us to look for sweet even when we do not need it, even distorting the sense of taste. This also happens with stevia.
- The psychological factor: the more you resort to sweetener, the more you feel empowered to take those calories somewhere else, a slightly more abundant dish, an escapade to the rule.
What is the solution?
If you read the blog you know that my posts tend to solve problems and not to create doubts, so what you need to do is drink water!
I know it’s obvious but it’s not just that you have to gradually eliminate everything you eat of sweetened including coffee and cappuccino.
Now if you have never done so you can not know but personally after avoiding taking sugars for weeks such as soft drinks, sweets, etc. what happens is a change in the sense of taste for sweet things that immediately appear sickening and overly sweet.
The sweets you need there you can find in the natural fruit without bombarding yourself with refined or fake sugars.
Beyond a loss of weight, less fatigue, more attention and energy, you will find that many foods that you ate before lightly begin to make you “slap” because they are too sweet, such as sodas, giant ice cream that you take close to home, packaged sweets, etc.
A lot of things you usually eat suddenly become too sweet.
The solution is to minimize sweets, avoid doping sugars whenever you feel the need, limit yourself to drinking water and eat only dark chocolate,and especially fruit.
