Which is Sweet and Safe and Low Calories
Stop taking sugar and start using sweetners instead, not only reduces sugar intake, it also less Calories too. Sugar has prominent drawbacks, including increased risk of tooth decay, weight gain, and the possibility of developing or worsening diabetic state.
There are five artificial sweeteners that have been tested and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA): acesulfame potassium (also called acesulfame K),aspartam ,saccharin ,sucralose.
I started with Aspartame K, and then used Sucralose has the fewest negative health effects of these four artificial sweeteners. But since it is still sugar it put me off and now I am using Stavia.
Also, with the exception of aspartame, others cannot be broken down by the body. They pass through our systems without being digested so they provide no extra calories. But since doing some research, it looks like I will start using Stavia ( watch the video below).
However, after years of studying saccharine and other artificial sweeteners the National Cancer Institute has stated “There’s no scientific evidence that any of the artificial sweeteners approved for use in the U.S. cause cancer. ” Overall, consumption of artificial sweeteners are deemed safe. The only disorder that people need to watch their consumption of aspartame.
Honey is a sweet orgnic alternative and has extra Health Benefits. But this is not helpful to those who need to lower calories, such as diabetics.
Coconut Sugar looks a good alternative thanks, and a better choice than Honey. It is still high in calories slightly less though than cane sugar, so would not be good for low calorie diets.
As for Coconut Oil, it is very high in Saturated Fat compared to many other vegetable oils.
