The Health Affects of Low Calorie Diet Beverages
If you’re still on the mighty “Calorie-is-King” bandwagon then you’re probably thinking how is it possible for low-calorie diet drinks to cause weight GAIN.
Isn’t the whole purpose of using diet drinks so you can enjoy a sweet tasting beverage without the added calories of sugar ...in hopes of losing weight?
Yes, that’s exactly the purpose.
There are two factors to be considered regarding the affects of these so-called diet beverages on your health and weight:
- The calorie factor.
- The sweet taste factor.
The amount of calories in your diet drink is not the problem regarding whether you gain or lose weight. This is obvious, since diet drinks contain very few calories.
The REAL problem regarding your weight is the sweet taste of these low calorie diet drinks.
Well, think about this for a moment...
Since there’s NO sugar in diet beverages then what’s that sweet taste?
It’s a sweet tasting, NEURO-TOXIC chemical additive known as "ASPARTAME"..., created by using genetically modified bacteria.
You’ve probably heard of this dangerous, artificial no- or low-calorie sweetener. It’s sold under the trade names NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful or AminoSweet, etc. So what does this toxic chemical called Aspartame do to YOU?
Although there are numerous health related issues ingesting it, just one of the side affects is Aspartame makes you FATTER!
Here are a few documented symptoms listed with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as caused by Aspartame:
Headaches/migraines, dizziness, nausea, numbness, muscle spasms, fatigue, weight gain, depression, irritability, insomnia, heart palpitations, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, memory loss, and joint pain.
Did you notice some of the other symptoms of ingesting Aspartame?
Real crazy stuff!
In 2005 research data gathered showed that drinking diet soft drinks increased the likelihood of serious weight gain – much more than regular soda! (Reference: UT Health Center San Antonio Press Release. June 14, 2005 · Volume: XXXVIII · Issue: 24)
Here’s how eating Aspartame actually makes you gain weight...
- Causes unstable blood sugar levels – which increases your appetite and causes cravings for sweets/sugar. (Reference: Chen, L. N., and Parham, E. S. Journal of American Diet Assoiation, 1991: 686 - 90)
- Causes fluid retention – giving your body a puffy and bloated appearance.
- Increases cellulite – which are those “cottage cheese” looking thighs and buttocks.
That's not good news for losing weight, but here's the real frightening side of Aspartame. Your body breaks down (metabolizes) the poisonous chemical Neurotoxins in the Aspartame into several chemical components (more poisons), such as:
- Formic acid which is used as a pesticide.
- Formaldehyde which is an ingredient in embalming fluid.
- Diketopiperazine which is a brain tumor agent.
Shocking, isn't it? Absolutely.
And what's even more appalling is not only is the FDA aware, but also the manufacturing companies know full well of the health dangers of the products. Yet continue marketing a neurotoxic carcinogenic drug to the overweight population as a sugar free "diet product"... being fully aware this is causing more obesity!
Those supposed “diet” drinks can indeed cause weight gain, and should be avoided. Diet soda is NOT a weight loss product and you should NOT consume it as part of your diet. But once free of these so-called “diet products” a lot of people actually lose weight over a short period of time and without exercise.
So if for whatever reason you don't avoid drinking or eating foods that contain Aspartame trying to lose weight (why would anyone want to consume it now after reading this article?)... than avoid comsuming Aspartame just for your HEALTH.
