Advertisers hate it when people figure out that all those diet products you’re buying can actually make you gain weight, especially the more you use.
Diet sweeteners trick your body and they don’t feed it what it really needs. You stay hungry when you eat fake foods, so you eat more.
Chemical diets are unnatural, and when you are hungry, your body wants to be fed—not chemicals, but whole foods with natural vitamins and nutrients to fuel it. Fake foods are what I refer to as “prosthetic foods” because a prosthesis looks like the real thing, such as a false tooth, but there is nothing inside of it—it’s not real.
So it is with fake foods. They may look like real food and taste like real food, but there is nothing inside for your body to feed from.
Why You Gain Weight
Several things happen when you eat diet chemicals:
- When you eat fake sugars and any fake food in general, your body will hoard whatever “real” food it receives in the form of fat because it thinks it’s starving and stores real food for later use;
- Artificial food chemicals penetrate the brain and once they get in, they get stuck there, acting “out of control” once inside with no purpose. They turn toxic to the brain, and they upset the normal function of your pineal gland, the hypothalamus, and the nerve centers, sending scrambled signals to your body organs. Illness, hormone imbalances, loss of libido, and weight gain typically result;
- Fake sugar chemicals stimulate your hunger sensation, but they do not satisfy your appetite. So, you remain hungry, and you eat more.
Hence, weight gain.
Typically, you will crave simple carbs, and binging is common.
Tricking Your Body
So, when you eat and drink aspartame and the other diet chemical sweeteners, you remain hungry, unsatisfied, and you can start gaining weight.
I wrote in my book, Sweet Poison, that studies have proven:
3. Then you crave carbohydrates.
Besides affecting your insulin, serotonin and your body’s hunger response, chemical sweeteners also increase cravings in yet another way by altering your blood sugar. This can be especially dangerous to people with diabetes or epilepsy, and can cause fluid retention, giving your body a puffy and bloated appearance, and it increases cellulite!
So if you want to maintain your weight, stay away from all of the diet sweeteners.
