At my Seattle weight loss and Bainbridge Island weight loss program Slender For Life™ I never recommend artificial sweeteners. Many weight loss clients are hooked on sugar and want something sweet. The great news is that with self-hypnosis you can end your sugar cravings. My book, Becoming Slender For Life and its hypnosis CD set support you with weight loss hypnosis in changing your eating habits. You can lose weight Seattle without artificial sweeteners.
Would it surprise you to learn aspartame may cause you to gain weight? It’s true — products marketed as “reduced calorie,” “sugar-free,” and “diet” can actually sabotage your weight control efforts. When clients ask about artificial sweeteners, I refer them to John McDougall, M.D. and his article Artificial Sweeteners Are Unnecessary and Unwise. Dr. McDougall says that: Artificial Sweeteners Help Few Dieters. The benefit of artificial sweeteners for weight loss is questioned for several reasons. First, as stated in the position paper of the American Dietetic Association, “Existing evidence does not support the claim that diets high in nutritive sweeteners (real sugars) by themselves have caused an increase in obesity rates or other chronic conditions (e.g. hyperlipidemia, diabetes, dental caries, behavioral disorders).” Sugar appears to be, at most, a minor player as the cause of obesity and related health problems; therefore, replacement with an artificial sugar would be expected to result in few benefits.
He also writes that sweeteners cause us to eat more. Like Dr. McDougall, I too am a fan of Stevia – a natural, safe and powerful sweetener. I highly recommend that you read Dr. John McDougall’s full article, Artificial Sweeteners Are Unnecessary and Unwise.
