Dietary Myths Busters – Two misconceptions

Number 1

Using Lo-cal style drinks and artificial sweeteners help you to lose weight.

Believed mechanism – Lower calories in the food or drink.

This is false.  There are studies which have shown that over time, use of these sweeteners, such as aspartame,   actually signals the part of the brain that triggers you to eat due to hunger.  The brain still thinks you are hungry so it signals you need to eat.   In studies conducted over long lengths of time, consistent use of sweeteners instead of food-based forms sweetness such as sugar, stevia, honey or real maple syrup, overall caused significant weight gain.

Net effect  – More kilojoules are consumed = More weight.

Number 2

Taking ketone supplements will add calories to your diet and so you will put on weight.

This is false. Ketone supplements in many people signal the brain that the body has enough fuel to run the body and run the brain effectively.  So, in this case, the brain signals the body that it needs less food, and it becomes easier to eat less food and increase time in-between eating.

Net effect  

Fewer kilojoules are consumed = Less weight

Smaller portions of food are easier to achieve and maintain.

Less frequent meals can be achieved easier if doing a fasting style diet such as 5:2.
