Surprisingly, Artificial Sweeteners Can Cause Weight Gain – Healthy Ketogenic Diet

Surprisingly, Artificial Sweeteners Can Cause Weight Gain – Healthy Ketogenic Diet

July 28, 2019 19 By William Morgan


hello everyone today I want to talk
about the effects of sweeteners on
weight loss it’s a very interesting
topic these are my ideas I want to
start this off by saying this these are
my ideas for those of you who don’t know
who I am my name is Violet Reveira I’m a
psychologist and the reason I make these
videos is I want to help people to
understand that mental health and
physical health come together to produce
overall well-being and so therefore we
have to pay attention to both I really
do find that when people have more
information they tend to make better
decisions okay I’m gonna
I wanna start off by telling a little
story I don’t know if you ever had the
experience when you were younger where
your parents are on their way out and
they’re gonna be back in a few hours and
they tell you that they want you to do
XYZ chores before they get back home and
so they leave and you go sit down and
watch TV or play your video game or do
something else
and thinking in your head that you have
so much time and that you’ll do it
before they get back and then by the
time you realize it you hear the door
jiggling and you haven’t done your
chores and now you pop up out of the
couch and you’re running around like a
crazy person trying to get the chores
done before they get in with the
groceries let’s say and see that you
haven’t done what you were asked to do
the reason I’m telling you this story is
because I actually believe that our body
functions in a very similar way when it
comes to sugar okay okay bear with me
I’m gonna explain how I think that when
it comes to sugar entering our system
our bodies behave like an angry parent
has just gotten home when we ingest
sugar our body is put in a position
where that five grams of sugar that’s
already circulating in our system
because our body keeps it at that level
is now being bumped up by whatever we
ate so if we’ve eaten something that has
10 grams the our body is realizing that
10 grams of sugar are coming in but only
five can be in our bloodstream so
something needs to move around so what
happens and this is something that you
can look up in any you know biology
textbook or website or whatever is that
when we ingest any carbohydrates our
body right away pull some of those
carbohydrates out in our stomach so in
our stomach some of the carbohydrates
gets pulled out and gets utilized as
quickly
as possible as energy now I know a lot
of weight lifters and exercise people
believe that this is because sugar is so
darn energy efficient and good for us to
you I don’t think that’s why this is
happening you see too much sugar and our
bloodstream is toxic I believe that the
reason that our bodies grabs the sugar
and pushes some of it out to be used as
energy is because it’s used as energy
it’s no longer in our system and so
therefore we’ve just gotten rid of some
so what does that mean sugar at the door
is like an angry parent
and so if you look at what happens when
you we taste something sweet our body is
already mobilizing for us to have that
sweet in our system it knows it’s coming
right our taste receptors tells our
system that sugar it’s on its way why is
that important because our system needs
to know when sugar it’s on its way
because we can’t have more than 5 grams
in our body at any sorry in our
bloodstream at any particular point in
time we can have it in our body stored
away as fat stored away as glycogen we
can have it in our body but sitting in
our bloodstream
we cannot what I believe is happening is
that when we taste sugar and our body
puts some sugar away to make space for
the sugar that’s coming in so either we
use it as energy or we store it as fat
or glycogen which is fine our body puts
some of it away then the sugar that
comes in replaces what was put away and
everything is back to homeostasis but
what happens when the sweet that was
tasted was artificial sweetener so now
we have a problem
see our body is being told carbs are on
the way but in actuality it was an
artificial sweetener but our body
doesn’t know that so it puts some carbs
away with the expectation but carbs are
coming and what happens no carbs come so
the problem is that we’ve put some carbs
away but no carbs come what does our
body do now right because now we might
be in a slight little deficit I have
experienced this phenomena that I’m
talking about I’m not just making
something up and
it happened to me multiple times and
after thinking about it this is where
this idea came to me and again like I’m
saying this is totally my idea but I’m
trying to help you to understand that I
see happening and actually after I saw
it happen to myself I started to
investigate with other people and to do
that little experiment of between lunch
and supper where you normally would not
have had anything because I’m talking
about people were doing keto drink some
diet soda and tell me what happens
because this is what was happening to me
between lunch and supper a few times I
decided as a little treat for myself
because I like diet soda I would drink a
diet soda and then about 20 minutes to
an hour later I was extremely hungry the
kind of hungry that wasn’t going away
and I couldn’t figure out what was going
on until eventually I started thinking
about what happens when my taste
receptors think that there’s sugar
coming and honestly when you look at the
biology it makes sense as soon as sugar
hits your stomach some of it gets pushed
out to be used as energy and your body
starts putting your insulin goes up and
your body starts putting it away as fat
or glycogen so if I tell my body that
there’s sugar coming but none comes of
course it’s still gonna put something
away so I was actually hungry struggling
to make it to lunch I mean sorry it
struggling to make it to supper and the
people that I asked to do the same thing
had the same experience that all of a
sudden they were hungry are the
artificial sweeteners causing my insulin
spike our mind and our senses are
connected and our bodies are connected
so everything is connected so if your
body is being told that sugar is coming
it behaves as if sugar is coming and
sugar can’t stay in our system so it
gets put away but now I’m low on sugar
because I have to have five grams of
sugar in my system or I become
hypoglycemic right so now it wants to
put the sugar back so it’s pushing me to
eat and honestly it takes more energy
for my body to go and pull some carbs
from protein then it would be for me to
just go eat something so that’s what
happens it pushes me to eat something
how does this affect weight loss if I
allow myself to eat keto snack
which have no notes and no carbs in them
but they’re sweetened with artificial
sweeteners if I allowed myself to drink
sodas that have artificial sweeteners or
any other kind of drinks with artificial
sweeteners whenever I ingest anything
with artificial sweeteners I’m telling
my body something sweet is coming even
though nothing sweet is coming is and my
body does this process so what I’m
asking you to realize is that if you do
find yourself still getting hungry even
though you’re not eating
excessive carbs there’s a possibility
that is the artificial sweeteners that
you’re eating that are pushing you to
want to eat because in actuality we’re
kind of forcing our system to put awake
sugar that it didn’t need to put away
again this is my theory on this I’m not
a medical doctor I’m just looking at
what happened to me I’m looking at what
happened to the few people that I asked
to try this out they all reported back
to me the same thing that weirdly they
became hungry even though normally they
could make it to supper and all of a
sudden they couldn’t make it to supper
and I want to push point out that this
is actually physical hunger this is not
that psychological hunger that I was
talking about in the other video I’ll
link that up above this is a physical
hunger this is a hunger of someone who
actually created a deficit somehow and
now is needing to replenish what was
taken out which means that like I said
earlier it doesn’t go away you can drink
water you can do all the normal things
that we would do for a psychological
hunger give yourself time etc it doesn’t
go away you actually feel hungry until
you eat something so what the answer is
for this is actually and I know you’re
gonna think I’m gonna say well don’t eat
artificial sweeteners but that’s not the
answer I mean it could be the answer if
you want it to be the answer but that’s
not the answer I was talking about if I
wanna have a soda if I want to have a
Keadle friendly treat that’s sweet what
I really need to be able to do is make
sure that I have those with my meal what
was what I did notice is that if I have
the Keitel friendly treat or if I have a
soda a diet soda at the at my meal so
with my food then because there are
usually carbs in what I eat because I
normally do eats vegetables then
my body doesn’t have that reaction
because it still has to put those carbs
away that I didn’t just anyways and so
it seems to all like level itself out so
my suggestion to you is rather than have
a snack between and you shouldn’t be
having snacks anyways the whole point of
trying to be healthier is that you’re
not eating breakfast snack lunch snack
dinner snack because that just creates
insulin spikes to begin with at the end
of the day if you are eating a nice meal
and then you turn around and you have a
diet soda or keto friendly drink that
has an artificial sweetener in it or
keto friendly snack that has artificial
sweetener in it and it tastes sweet
having a tender meal will not affect
your your ability to go between meals I
really hope that helps you to understand
that artificial sweeteners can have some
level effect on some people and by
managing them when you have them you can
definitely mitigate any issues that
you’ll have in terms of feeling hungry
because that could cause you to eat
excessively or to eat at times where you
would not have normally eaten I want to
thank you for watching Mind Blowing
Health and Wellness with Violet and I
will talk to you again in the next video
