Artificial sweeteners increase the need for sugar
Studies show that trying to replace sugar with artificial sweeteners often increases the consumption of sweet and calorie-dense foods.
This is because aspartame and other surrogates do not give the body as much energy as sugar. The right amount of calories are not coming in, and the desire to eat something sweet does not disappear.
If you want to give up sugar, it is better not to switch to its substitutes, but simply try to reduce its amount in your diet. It turns out it’s not that hard.
