The worst kind of evil is the sneaky insidious kind and that’s what a biologist says about sodas and other fizzy beverages. I know that I just wrote yesterday about You Can Get Your Kids To Cut Out The Sodas, but this is really important because that sweet mouth reward diverts thoughts of aborted fetal cells, cancer-causing chemicals or Type 2 Diabetes.
When I was a kid a pop was a rare treat. I might have had 6 sodas in a year. Today, it is not unheard of for some people to have 6 sodas in a day. There was a time when I weighed 110 pounds more than I do now that I drank 6 or more Diet Cokes each day. The more that I drank NutraSweet the more I wanted. And, on top of that, the more Diet Coke I drank, the more hungry I thought that I was which resulted in eating more junk food.
How did I stop that viscous and”evil” cycle? With hypnosis for weight loss.
Biologist Calls Sodas and
Fizzy Beverages ‘Evil’
Multiple long-term studies show that both regular and diet sodas greatly increase risks of: heart attack, heart disease, high blood pressure (hypertension), stroke, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome (high triglycerides), fatty liver disease, liver failure, and of course, obesity. Exposure to liquid sugar actually causes the genes in our muscles to change their behavior in as few as two sweet drinks per week for a month. More consumption for a longer period of time increases odds of the changes being permanent. It actually changes our metabolism. Blood tests show harmful levels of inflammation in the blood vessels of soft drinkers, as well as decreased levels of HDL (good) cholesterol, which is crucial to vascular system health.
Researchers are now saying that promoting artificial sweeteners, including high fructose corn syrup, aspartame, and Splenda, as healthy alternatives to sugar is ill-advised. The sweetness of the artificial alternatives is so sweet that it makes users crave more, even when they aren’t thirsty. It gives ‘an increased preference for sweet things in the mouth’ without reducing the consumption of food to offset the increase in calories. It sways people toward a high calorie, high salt diet. Alternative sweeteners overload the body’s built in mechanisms for regulating blood sugar. They confuse the body’s ability to compensate and process the influx of chemicals and calories. They also come with additional health risks, such as the multiple side effects of aspartame, which range from migraines to depression, blindness to tinnitus, seizures to tachycardia, just to name a few.
To compound the problem, consumption of soft drinks, including other fizzy beverages masquerading as healthier choices, increases the appetite for junk food. The body’s ability to cope with rises in blood sugar becomes increasingly inefficient and ineffective, leading to higher levels of fasting glucose, insulin resistance, and ultimately leads to type 2 diabetes. Long term use can lead to liver or pancreatic cancer.
I remember what it was like to get up in the morning and pop open a can of Diet Coke while I waited for the coffee to brew. That set off my day of always craving more diet soda. What I did not know then was how addictive diet beverages really are. I also did not know that NutraSweet tricks your hypothalamus into thinking that you have consumed enough calories even when you already have consumed for than you need.
At that time, my blood pressure was borderline and I was flirting with diabetes. Hypnosis for weight loss changed all of that for me. 17 years ago I lost over 100 pounds and I have kept it off ever since with no more issues of blood pressure or diabetes. You too can make positive changes to improve your health.
