Eliminating Artificial Sweeteners To Contorl Hunger And Cravings For Sweets.
Members Were Sparked
Since I eliminated all Aspartame and Sucralose (splenda) from all my food and drink eight months ago, I have been able to control my cravings for sugar, the amount of daily sugar content in diet. My diet has transformed from being hungry all the time constantly craving sweets to seldom being hungry and being satisfied by much less food. Which has enabled me to naturally crave healthy foods, eating the same foods loosing weight as I will be once the weight is off.
I was a 25 plus year diet soda addict, drinking 4-7 cans day. I am convinced Artificial sweeteners has been largely responsible for my lifetime of bad eating habits. I can not express the effects of eliminating artificial sweeteners from my diet. Well on my way to loosing plus 200 lbs of weight loss.

Dr Mark Hyman Says "Stop confusing your body. If you have a desire for something sweet, have a little sugar, but stay away from “fake” foods. Researchers found that the total food eaten over 14 days dramatically increased in the artificial sweetener group — meaning that the artificial sweetener stimulated their appetite and made them eat more."THERE’S NO DOUBT about it. Artificial sweeteners cause obesity" "Eliminate sugar and artificial sweeteners and your cravings will go away"
I am a sugar addict & eliminated all artificial sweeteners and sugar all together & not longer crave sugar. I still find myself occasionally wanting a taste of chocolate. Problem is just a little sugar will start a chain reaction of wanting more one hour later. At the end of day if I have more room in my calorie bank I will allow myself little chocolate when I am tired right before bed. As long as I get to sleep within the next hour I am unaffected the next day. My sugar cheat.
Since eliminating sugar and artificial sweeteners from my eating habits it has solved my life long hunger issues.
Artificial sweeteners may save you calories, but it's not really that great a bargain. Artificial sweeteners have been connected to weight GAIN, INCREASED food cravings, INCREASED hunger, INCREASED insulin resistance leading to Diabetes and DECREASED ability to taste naturally sweet foods like fruit. And, yes, some sweeteners are STILL possibly linked to CANCER - they just haven't been on the market long enough for the link to show (all according to a recent Dr. Oz show).
