Sugar Vs. Sugar-Free?

Table Of Content

  • What is the alternative?
  • Is Grass Really Greener on the other side?

    Here is what happens when you replace sugar with sugar-free (or any artificial sweetener)

    1. You promote the growth of inflammatory bacteria in your gut. Inflammation has been linked with cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.

    2. They boost insulin resistance. Insulin is a growth hormone and excess of any growth hormone is directly correlated to cancer.

    3. When you consume artificial sweeteners, the tongue tastes something sweet and triggers the release of insulin in the anticipation of ‘real sugar’. The more insulin released, the more calories are absorbed from the GI tract and converted to triglyceride (fat cells). Artificial sweeteners thus lead to weight GAIN.

    4. Artificial sweeteners make you less tolerant of sugar. This leads to more cravings and episodes of binge eating.

    5. They cause liver injury, slowing down metabolism and triggering hormonal fluctuation.

    What is the alternative?

    Substitute homemade date syrup (with the fiber intact) or fruits instead. Stevia is a slightly better alternative when used in coffee/ tea, however, if you are a coffee- run machine, I suggest you go sugar/ milk free.
