Artificial sweeteners mess up your hormones.
One of the biggest problems with these artificial sweeteners is the effect that they have on insulin.
Another message your brain sends out when you eat sweet food is to your pancreas.
Your pancreas responds to all sweet food by releasing insulin.
Because the body cannot actually break down artificial sweeteners, the insulin that’s been released to meet it is useless.
So the body now has more insulin available than it needs, which leads to blood sugar spikes.
These spikes will increase your craving for sweet food, and you don’t get that full feeling and will probably eat more.
