Key Point: The World Health Organization (WHO) warns that artificial sweeteners do not help with weight loss and may cause health problems. 😱 They also suggest eating naturally occurring sugars, like fruit, or unsweetened foods and beverages. 🍎🥛
Did you know that artificial sweeteners can make you gain weight instead of losing it? 😱 That’s what the World Health Organization (WHO) says in its new guidance, based on a systematic review of the evidence.
According to the WHO, products containing artificial sweeteners like saccharin, sucralose, aspartame or stevia do not help reduce body fat in adults or children. In fact, they may increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and mortality in adults. 😨
The WHO advises people to skip artificial sweeteners and reduce the sweetness of their diet altogether. They suggest consuming foods with naturally occurring sugars, like fruit, or unsweetened foods and beverages. 🍎🥛
As a weight loss coach, I agree with the WHO’s recommendation. Artificial sweeteners are not essential for your health and have no nutritional value. They may also trick your brain into craving more sweet foods, which can lead to overeating and weight gain. 🍰🍩
If you want to lose weight and improve your health, you should focus on eating a balanced diet that includes whole grains, lean protein, healthy fats, fruits and vegetables. You should also drink plenty of water and limit your intake of alcohol and sugary drinks. 💧🥗🍗
Artificial sweeteners are not a magic bullet for weight loss. They may do more harm than good to your body and your mind. So why not ditch them and enjoy the natural sweetness of life? 😊
