Most people use artificial sweeteners to lose weight and/or because they’re diabetic and need to avoid sugar. Ironically, nearly all the studies that have carefully analyzed artificial sweeteners show that those who use artificial sweeteners actually gain more weight than those who consume caloric sweeteners. Studies have also revealed that artificial sweeteners can be worse than sugar for diabetics
In 2005, data gathered from the 25-year long San Antonio Heart Study showed that drinking dietsoft drinks increased the likelihood of serious weight gain, far more so than regular soda. On average, each diet soft drink the participants consumed per day increased their risk of becoming overweight by 65 percent within the next seven to eight years, and made them 41 percent more likely to become obese.
There are several potential causes for this, including: -Sweet taste alone appears to increase hunger, regardless of caloric content. -Artificial sweeteners appear to simply perpetuate a craving for sweets, and overall sugar consumption is therefore not reduced—leading to further problems controlling your weight.4 -Artificial sweeteners may disrupt your body's natural ability to "count calories," as evidenced in studies such as this 2004 study at Purdue University,5 which found that rats fed artificially sweetened liquids ate more high-calorie food than rats fed high-caloric sweetened liquids.
There is also a large number of health dangers associated with artificial sweeteners and aspartame in particular. But this will take an entire new blog post.
One McDonald's Big Mac contains 540 calories, 29 grams of fat, and more than 40 grams of highly-processed, blood-sugar-spiking carbohydrates.
And that doesn't even count the fries and soft drink that you KNOW you're going to order with it.
At the same rate, here are a few alternative food choices and amounts that will land you at the same 540 calories:
140 medium strawberries 5 medium bananas 1 QUART of plain Greek yogurt 14 oz of grilled chicken breast 17 cups of broccoli 6 and 1/2 cups of blueberries
Better yet, go ahead and eat ALL of this in one sitting:
4 oz of grilled chicken (120 cals) 3 cups of broccoli (90 cals) 1 medium banana (100 cals) 8 oz of plain Greek yogurt (130 cals) 10 medium strawberries (40 cals) 1/2 cup of blueberries (40 cals)
So basically, you have an OVERFLOWING plate of chicken and veggies and then a HUGE dessert of yogurt and fruit. I mean, that's a massive quantity of food right there. In fact, most people wouldn't even be able to finish it.
And guess what? It still contains fewer calories than ONE Big Mac and it's WAY healthier.
Simply put, you don't have to starve yourself (at all) to lose weight and shed those stubborn pounds...you just need to learn how to choose the right foods, and then eat your heart out.
