Low Carb Desserts Without Artificial Sweeteners
I'm beginning a lifestyle change with a low carb high protein for improved fitness and weight loss. What is a good sweetener, for say plain yogurt?
Use in moderation: Artificial sweeteners don't cause cavities to occur and are fairly low in calories. However, consuming large amounts of artificial sweeteners may have a laxative effect. But with rare exceptions, they appear to pose little or no risk when used in moderation. Although artificial sweeteners are considered generally safe, some experts remain wary still because not enough long term data and history.
Mostly: Artificial sweeteners are chemicals designed to fit into the sweetness receptor of the tongue and mimic the taste of actual sugar. There are many variants, some naturally derived and some synthetic. The levels of chemical are quite low and while much has been made of the side effects, there is actually little to choose between them.
Define bad for you: Anything can have side effects, even too much clean water. Artificial sweeteners are just that....Artificial. They don't belong in your body. Stevia is a plant extract that can be used as an "artificial" sweetener that may have less issues. Some people seem to tolerate artificial sweeteners without any problems, others get massive side effects. Choose your poisons carefully!
VERY TOXIC! AVOID!!!: Aspartame & other artificial sweeteners like sucralose are toxic, should not have been approved & are very hazardous. They have many side effects & cause obesity! See http://www. Sweetpoison. Com/ & http://tinyurl. Com/jude3kz & http://www. Eruptingmind. Com/the-dangers-of-artificial-sweeteners I NEVER eat these dangerous chemicals! Try natural low-caloric sweeteners like stevia, xylitol & erythritol.
Early data: Epidemiological studies suggest that those drinking diet soda are more likely to become obese. Whether this is true has yet to be proven. The topic of artificial sweeteners on metabolism and satiety is highly controversial. Some studies say artificial sweetners make rodents more Insulin resistant, others suggest that people gain a better sense of satiety w/them. It'll take years to sort out.
Sweeteners.: Artificial sweeteners can cause several non-specific systemic symptoms - fatigue, drowsiness, achiness, headaches - especially if used in large amounts throughout the day. Stop using the, for a while, drink enough water through the day to that your urine is almost clear, and see if the headaches go away. If not (give it a few days), see your doctor.
No significant risk: Artificial sweeteners do not pose a significant risk to your health, and do not lead to any demonstrated increase in risk of harm to your baby. Still, during early pregnancy, many women choose to avoid artificial sweeteners as part of a plan to avoid all chemicals, medications, over the counter remedies, herbals, and additives in their diet.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: The american academy of pediatrics' committee on nutrition appointed a task force to investigate this question, and they concluded that all the currently available artificial sweeteners are safe during pregnancy. The fda recommends that pregnant women limit aspartame consumption to "moderate levels"-- which is actually a lot more than you would think (roughly 10 cans of diet soda daily).See 1 more doctor answer
See below: There is no risk involved with drinking artificial sweeteners.
Yes: There was some controversy about saccharin in relation to a laboratory study in which very high levels caused bladder tumors in rats. Most other sweeteners have an excellent safety profile. A few have objections for various reasons to aspartame. But sucralose and others seem totally fine.
