Are you having trouble with belly fat that just won’t go away? Are you dieting, but still gaining weight? Do you reach for another diet cola thinking that this will help you curb your appetite?
Big sweetener companies hate it when people figure out that all those diet products you’ve been buying can actually make you gain weight and keep you hungry, especially the more you use.
Diet sweeteners trick your body by making you think that you’re eating or drinking something, but it’s fake food with no nutrients. Fake food doesn’t feed your body what it really needs – NUTRIENTS.
You stay hungry when you eat fake foods, and you eat more. You eventually start craving simple carbs for an energy hit, and as you keep gaining weight, you choose diet products all the more.
Chemical diets are unnatural, and when you are hungry, your body wants nutrients —not chemicals – because whole foods with natural vitamins and nutrients give you energy, both physical and mental acuity; nutrients support your immune system, and good nutrition keeps you young and thin.
Fake foods are what I refer to as “prosthetic foods” because a prosthesis looks like the real thing, such as a false tooth, but there is nothing inside of it—it’s not real.
It’s the same with fake foods. They may look like real food and taste like real food, but there is nothing inside for your body to feed from.
Why You Gain Weight
You gain weight because several things happen when you eat diet sweeteners:
- When you eat fake sugars, your body will hoard whatever “real” food it receives in the form of fat because it thinks it’s starving and stores nutrients for later use.
- Your body uses natural sugar for energy; if you don’t consume too much and if you don’t eat processed sugar or artificial sugar, it won’t store it – it uses it.
- Artificial food chemicals can penetrate your brain and once they get in your brain, they get stuck there; they can’t get out, and this affects healthy brain function.
- Once useless chemicals get inside of your brain serving no purpose, they turn rogue and get “out of control” because they have no functional value, and this causes illness and weight gain as a result of mixed brain signals.
- Diet sweetener chemicals are toxic to your brain, and they upset the normal function of your pineal gland, the hypothalamus, and your nerve centers, sending scrambled signals to your body organs and immune system. Illness, hormone imbalances, loss of libido, and weight gain typically result.
- Fake sugars stimulate your hunger because they do not satisfy your appetite. You remain hungry, and you eat more throughout the day and too late at night before bed.
- Diet sweeteners create a craving for more simple carbs, and going on a binge is common. Hence – weight gain.
Tricking Your Body
When you eat and drink aspartame and the other diet chemical sweeteners, you remain hungry, unsatisfied after you eat, and you start gaining weight as a result.
I write in my book, Sweet Poison, studies have proven:
1. aspartame penetrates your brain;
2. diet sweeteners suppress serotonin;
3. chemical sugars cause you to crave carbohydrates.
Besides affecting your insulin levels, serotonin production, and your body’s hunger response, chemical sweeteners also increase cravings in yet another way by altering your blood sugar. This can be especially dangerous to people with diabetes or epilepsy, and can cause fluid retention, giving your body a puffy and bloated appearance, and it increases cellulite!
So if you want to maintain your weight, stay away from all of the diet sweeteners.
