How Artificial Sweeteners Confuse Your Body Into Storing Fat And Inducing Diabetes

Research shows that aspartame worsens insulin sensitivity to a greater degree than sugar Artificial sweeteners promote weight gain by tricking your body into thinking it will receive sugar (calories); when the sugar doesn’t arrive, carb cravings can result Artificial sweeteners likely also cause weight gain by disrupting your intestinal microflora, thereby raising your risk of both obesity and diabetes By Dr. Mercola As noted in the featured video, there are currently five different artificial sweeteners on the market. The one you're most likely to encounter is aspartame, which also tends to be the worst of the bunch. Aspartame and other artificial sweeteners are primarily promoted to diabetics and those concerned about their weight. This despite the fact that artificial sweeteners have repeatedly been shown to produce the exact opposite effects: Artificial sweeteners have also been found to promote weight gain, in more ways than one Over time, artificial sweeteners have also crept into a wide variety of products not directly targeting diabetics and dieters.

How Elevated Blood Sugar Causes Weight Gain (and What To Do About It)

High blood sugar is extremely unhealthy and has been exposed in recent years as very damaging to the body. The damage that high blood sugar triggers is involved in the development of nearly all degenerative diseases. Blood sugar is supposed to stay fairly even in a tightly-controlled range, not tumultuous with dramatic spikes and crashes. But often, people eat processed starches and sugary foods that spike their blood sugar and put them at risk of chronic blood glucose elevation. Why High Blood Sugar Is Bad Before we talk about how high blood sugar makes you fat, you should know that it can cause a host of other health problems and damage your body in numerous ways. Here's a small list of possible complications from chronically elevated blood sugar and the damaging inflammation, glycation, and oxidative stress it causes: cardiovascular disease kidney failure cancer blindness obesity diabetes accelerated aging accelerated organ damage Weight Gain and High Blood Sugar There are two primary ways in which high blood sugar causes weight gain: It causes chronically high insulin levels and the loss of insulin sensitivity.

Coffee Linked To Weight Gain

Can coffee cause weight gain? In some people caffeine can lead to hormonal changes that encourage fat storage. “When you consume caffeine, it sends a message to the pituitary gland in your brain to alert your adrenal glands to make adrenalin,” says Dr Libby Weaver, author of Rushing Woman’s Syndrome. “Your body thinks it is in danger so this causes a ‘fight or flight’ response, which leads your blood sugar to rise to provide you with more energy and in response, you make more insulin to deal with that elevation in blood sugar,” she says. Insulin is a primary fat storage hormone. The effect is highest in sippers downing five or more cups of Joe a day. The evidence According to a study at the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research, mice fed the equivalent of five or more cups of coffee a day quickly developed abnormal retention of fat in their cells and liver and showed a greater insulin resistance. In effect, too much coffee fast ramped up their risk of weight gain and Type 2 diabetes. Tearoom tactics: • Choose low-caffeine teas and drink more herbal teas such as peppermint and chamomile, which are caffeine-free. • After you’ve had your daily coffee, s Continue reading >>
