Tune in on Tuesday, January 4 to the Dr. Oz Show when he gives you the facts and the fiction on artificial sweeteners.
On the episode, Dr. Oz will evaluate the most popular artificial sweeteners, like NutraSweet (aspartame), Splenda (sucralose) and Truvia (stevia). He’ll tell you which ones have been associated with weight gain, diabetes and even cancer. In 2008, researchers at Purdue University found that eating foods containing artificial sweetenerswas directly linked to eating more, consuming more calories and gaining weight.
But if you can’t go a day with your Diet Coke or coffee sweetened with a no-calorie packet, Dr. Oz will give you three healthy sweet alternatives that won’t send your blood sugar into a whirwind and won’t leave you craving for more of the sweet stuff.
