I know most of us really loved diet sodas knowing how these companies advertise it as so-called good for the diet, but what this study proved will make you think twice again.
Recently, the University of Southern California studied these diet drinks that contain sucralose that may boost food cravings and appetite in women and people who are obese.
Journal of the American Medical Association has confirmed a study that these diet drinks are containing sucralose which is a no-calorie artificial sweetener that has been stimulating the appetite in some people.
The study was conducted with 74 people who were asked to drink a 300ml of fluid sweetened with either table sugar, sucralose, or water — which served as a control — on three different occasions.
The study shows that “Blood was sampled at baseline and 10, 35, and 120 minutes after participants received a drink containing sucrose, sucralose, or water to measure plasma glucose, insulin, glucagon-like peptide (7-36), acyl-ghrelin, total peptide YY, and leptin,” the group said in the study’s abstract. “Participants were then presented with an ad libitum meal. Participants were right-handed, nonsmokers, weight-stable for at least 3 months before the study visits, non-dieters, not taking medication, and with no history of eating disorders, illicit drug use, or medical diagnoses.”
And previously, Courier-Journal has confirmed that Cardio Exercise is better compared to drinking diet sodas.
“Given the theme of this column, it would seem that a big step forward in promoting public health would be to shift from fully sugared soda to sugarless diet drinks. Seems logical, right? Unfortunately, over the years, it has been determined that diet drinks are not the answer. Yes, diet drinks reduce calories from sugar, but they can be harmful to your health in several ways.
For starters, ironically, diet drinks can cause weight gain instead of weight loss. Despite fewer calories in diet drinks, this is offset by an increased desire for sugary treats. This may be due to a change in the brain, the so-called “sweet-sensing reward center,” and its reaction to sweetness, causing an increase in cravings for high-calorie foods.”
And it is well said that Diet soda may increase risk of insulin resistance and may cause stroke as to diet drinks are using artificial sweeteners and it brings more chances of insulin confusion.”
