Fake Sugar = Fake Dieting
Every one reaches for the "fake" sugar when we are trying to lose a few pounds, or keep our weight under control.
Does it work?
The research shows the opposite, that fake sugars may increase your craving for sweet foods and cause you to eat larger servings than foods using real sugar. There is evidence that our bodies don't accurately recognize calories from sweet foods when they are sweetened with fake sugars, and we end up consuming way more before we feel full.
Whenever we eat or drink sweet foods, we need to be extra conscious of calories . At SuperFoodsRx, we encourage every one to use natural, unprocessed brown sugar whenever they'd like to add a little sweetness to their food. You'll be surprised how little you'll need!
Also, keep in mind that when we fill-up on processed, sweetened foods we can crowd out nutrient-rich whole foods which should be included in every ballanced diet.
