    Artificial sweeteners associated with 33% increased risk of diabetes

    People who consumed artificial sweeteners “always or almost always” were 33% more likely to develop diabetes after adjusting for body mass index compared to people who consumed artificial sweeteners “never or rare” according to the E3N-European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition Study.

    (The risk was 83% greater before adjusting for body mass index indicating that part of the increased risk was due to a person’s adiposity.)

    Pregnant mothers who consumed artificial sweeteners daily, 2.2 times greater risk of overweight baby

    Women who consumed artificially-sweetened beverages daily during pregnancy were 2.2 times more likely to have an overweight baby when the baby reached one-year compared to women who consumed no artificially sweetened beverages.

    “These effects were not explained by maternal [body mass index], diet quality, total energy intake, or other obesity risk factors,” the authors of the study note.

    They also noted that, “There were no comparable associations for sugar-sweetened beverages.”

    SUCCESSFUL WEIGHT LOSS STRATEGIES

    Most popular weight loss strategies: eating less, exercising more, eating less fat, low-calorie food

    "The most-popular strategies employed by obese participants who reported trying to lose weight were eating less, exercising more, eating less fat, and switching to lower-calorie foods," notes a new paper about obese adults who were participants in the 2001–2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).

    "In contrast, only a small proportion used commercial weight loss programs, liquid diets, and prescription weight loss medicines.

    "Liquid diets, nonprescription diet pills, and popular diets showed no association with successful weight loss, and those who reported losing 10% body weight [or more] were less likely to report eating diet foods/products, compared with those who did not lose 10%."

    ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS

    Sugar is more potent than artificial sweeteners at turning off brain’s desire for sweetness

    "Another recent study, in humans [ by Frank et al, 2008 ], revealed that sugar is more potent than low-calorie sweeteners in stimulating brain areas related to expectation and satisfaction, thereby turning off the desire for more sweetness," notes noted Tracy Hampton in an article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

    "We thought that sugar and artificial sweeteners, which both activate sweet receptors in the tongue, would both activate the same pathways in the brain," said principal investigator Walter Kaye, MD, of the University of Pittsburgh's Department of Psychiatry, Hampton quotes in her article. "They turned out to not be the same," [ Dr. Kaye ] added.
