In this episode Pete and Emmy talk about the allure and draw of artificalial sweeteners and why they are not as good a choice as we may have previously believed.
Sweeteners are a broad class of non-nutritive compounds—things that taste like sugar but provide little or no calories and no nutrition.
People who drink an artificially sweetened (diet) soda daily have a 36% greater chance of developing the metabolic syndrome and a whopping 67% increased risk of type 2 diabetes. BUT WHY?
“There is an overwhelming amount of evidence that [artificial sweeteners] can be useful as a tool for weight management, when people are actually cognitively engaged in trying to lose weight … as part of a program or following a plan.” — John C. Peters, PhD, professor, chief of strategy and innovation, University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center, Aurora
