“Many are trying to do things to make them thin and ignore that sugar is their enemy”–Paul Ebeling
There are more overweight people in the world than hungry people. More than 1-B according to the World Health Organization are overweight.
Sugar also makes us nervous, depresses our immune system, and even causes facial wrinkles.
It is natural to enjoy the sweet taste in naturally sweet foods like fruits which are also good for us. The problem is that most people do not limit their sweet foods to fruit; too often it is a different sugar fix that many resort to.
At Purdue University Research on Artificial Sweeteners, they found that an artificial sweetener makes our body less able to regulate energy. This explains why, when you are eating so little, exercising so much and find you are still gaining weight.
Also, the body does not recognize chemical sweeteners as food; it leaves the body feeling unfilled and seeking nourishment, thus increasing your craving for food. The main reason people consume these is to lose weight and be thin. Since these artificial sweeteners came on the market, we have been seeing eating disorders on the rise among younger people.
Because of very clever advertising, people believe they can eat these sugar-free artificial foods without penalty. On the other side of this, there is a fear that eating real food will cause weight gain.
The human body was designed to eat whole food, real food, not chemicals.
If you care about your health, my advice is to stay away from artificial sweeteners.
