If you are health conscious and foody both at the same time,
then you go for taking diet food,
low sugar or no sugar ready to eat products.
You Think that if you will have such
low sugar or diet food, you will get
less calories. But do you know that-
you may be getting artificial sweeteners if you are consuming-
- diet coke
- sugar free chewing gums
- low/ no sugar ketchup’s
- low sugar chyawan Prash
- sugar free ready to eat breakfast meals
- sugar free biscuits
- sugar free burfis ( sweets)
and so on.
The list is endless. These products contain
artificial sweeteners like aspartame. Even if
these products like aspartame are approved by
health regulatory authorities such as FDA, many
studies have found their correlation with some serious health risks like:
- Brain tumor
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Headache & migraine
- Premature birth etc
The worst thing is that, several studies link aspartame to
weight gain, increased appetite and diabetes.
Exactly opposite of your desired intention!!!
So, rather than indulging yourself in consuming
products containing artificial sweeteners,
getting expert advise from a qualified dietitian &
taking healthy, delicious food to satisfy your
taste buds are definitely a better and healthier option.
