For years now I’ve just known something smelled fishy. Have you ever have that feeling, like something just isn’t sitting right with you?
It all started years ago with a minor headache every afternoon. I imagined it must be stress and nothing that an aspirin couldn’t take care of.
Then I began to notice a wee bit of stomach upset. I figured it was the aspirin.
Then the headaches got worse and I started having anxiety attacks.
By this time, I thought I was going nuts. Every afternoon the headaches and the stomach ache and then the anxiety.
Finally, I started feeling depressed, worn out and just plain old BLAAAHHH.
And the worst part, my weight stopped dropping and started RISING.
I knew that there was something wrong somewhere because I was scrutinizing my calories like a deranged accountant. In fact, I had switched to drinking diet soda instead of regular soda for my afternoon caffeine fix.
That’s when it dawned on me. I started looking into artificial sweeteners because it was the only thing that I had changed recently.
Everywhere on the internet people were reporting similar symptoms.
I knew something must be going on; however all the studies were showing that artificial sweeteners were safe (unless you ate a bucket full everyday).
However, now the studies are finally showing exactly what I feared – this has been a phenomenal cover up.
There’s no longer any doubt about it. Artificial sweeteners cause obesity.
Research shows that the thought, smell, or sight of food sets off a slew of hormonal and physiological responses in your body.
I don’t need any research to tell me when I think of chocolate cake or ice cream my mouth starts watering.
The problem is these artificial sweeteners are doing the same thing – except inside your body. Every time you consume any diet food or drink your body is getting ready for a big intake of sugar and calories. Then BAMMO! Nothing happens!
Like the little boy that cried wolf – nobody believed him after a few times, so how do you think your body reacts?
Researchers studied two groups of rats.
One group was fed yogurt sweetened with old fashioned sucrose (sugar) the other is fed a yogurt sweetened with the artificial sweetener saccharin.
The rats were on this yogurt diet for 14 days; however they didn’t lose any weight.
First of all the artificially sweetened group of rats started getting really hungry and started eating more and more over the two weeks. So the group ended up eating dramatically more calories than their sugar eating cousins.
Secondly, all of the weight that the rats gained was fat.
And thirdly, the artificial sweetener fed rates had a drop in core body temperature. This means their metabolism slowed right down and their bodies stopped burning calories as well.
Conclusions: The “artificial sweetener fed rats gained more weight, more body fat and ended up with a slower metabolism, even though they ate a lot less calories!
I’m going to say that again! They gained weight even though they ate fewer calories.
So the food industry is selling us stuff that makes you hungrier so you buy more of their products. That’s a great business for them. Not so good for us!
And yes, this applies to ALL non-nutritive sweeteners including stevia and xylitol.
Diet foods just aren’t going to help you lose weight so you need to look at another, better, healthier and long-term method of shedding the weight – for good this time.
If you want to lose weight fast, naturally and without strict diets then you need to take on the behaviors and thought processes of a naturally thin person.
The Gastric Hypno Balloon Hypnosis Weight Loss Program automatically programs your mind to think and act like a naturally thin person all while lowering stress, increasing confidence, eliminating emotional binge eating, and teaching your mind to love to exercise…guaranteed.
