Another recent study, led by Eran Elinav, fed mice several commercially available sweeteners (saccharin - Sweet-n Low, sucralose
Here's the bitter truth about the hidden costs of sugar-sweetened beverages.
Every time you eat processed, fast, or restaurant foods, you are putting your health, well-being, and palate in the hands of the food industry. You can change that by becoming mindful of how much sugar you are consuming, trying the 2-week challenge to reset your palate, and replacing processed foods with whole foods each day.
Aspartame lovers can stop hoarding Diet Pepsi now.  In April, PepsiCo announced that it was removing aspartame from Diet
Refined Sugar Ahh, refined sugar or commonly known as white (granulated) sugar, perhaps the most deadly ingredient on this
To be able to lose the weight for good, it's important to understand that both well-intentioned diet advice as well as lifestyle habits can really hinder your success, sometimes on a very subtle level.
The one question we should be asking ourselves is: Are these sugary items worth the health disorders, either in ourselves or our children?
"Part of the challenge is we've so lost our ability to sense natural sweetness because we've so over-sweetened our foods

A study out last week in the top-tier journal Nature told us that non-caloric artificial sweeteners (NAS) may contribute to glucose intolerance by mucking up our microbiomes. That's a serious indictment, since these products are intended to help defend against glucose intolerance, and other ills related to diabetes risk and weight gain.
This study shows quite nicely that non-caloric sweeteners can alter gut microbes in mice -- a change that has negative metabolic consequences -- and provides preliminary evidence that it can happen in humans too.
