This study was done on mice. However it is clear that there is an increased risk for weight gain and diabetes. See: http://www.healthline.com/health/diabetes-diet-soda#what-experts-say2 ...Read more

Help! Would 10.5g of sugar in a drink cause me to develop diabetes?

Help! Would 10.5g of sugar in a drink cause me to develop diabetes?

Not by itself!: If you are not diabetic already, then developing diabetes is usually the result of PROLONGED sugar excess, which your body eventually has difficulty controlling. One heavily-sugared drink by itself will not cause diabetes. However, lots of sugar from different sources over time can certainly predispose you to diabetes. If you are quite concerned, bloodwork for HemoglobinA1C would be a good start! ...Read more

Can a diabetic can drink a protein shake?

Can a diabetic can drink a protein shake?

Yes, but no: You can, but you don't want to. All protein drinks are is a bottle of extra calories -- calories that you probably don't need and don't want. Try 3 meals during the day, it's cheaper, tastes better and is much better for you. Protein shakes are metabolized to calories, just like anything else - otherwise you'd end up looking like what you eat. ...Read more

Can sugar intake from daily coffee create a risk for diabetes?

Coffee: Coffee has been recently been shown to reduce your chances of diabetes. However, certain types of sugar (high fructose corn syrup) have been implicated to cause dm2. The theory is that it absorbs so quickly, that it causes a high blood sugar spike. The compensatory Insulin spike, over time, causes a down regulation of receptors, leading to dm 2. So pay attention to the type of sugar you consume. ...Read more

Can a vegan diet cause anxiety/depression?

Can a vegan diet cause anxiety/depression?

I don't think so.: Anxiety happens when your mind registers a threatening or intimidating future event and your body prepares for action (fight/flight). Change your thoughts about the triggering situation, learn to calm your body's reaction, or deal with the situation to make it less threatening. If you're worried about your diet, talk to a dietician about why you're worried. A vegan diet is very healthy. ...Read more
