Whether you’re keto, trying to lose weight, improve glycemic control, or simply looking to cut back on sugar, low-calorie artificial sweeteners seem like the logical answer. Even though they may be keto, are these high-intensity sugar substitutes really the sweet solution? Or, does frequent consumption of artificial sweeteners lead to a host of counterintuitive harmful effects, such as weight gain, gut dysbiosis, metabolic dysfunction, and more? In this episode of the BioTrust Radio podcast, we’ll dig into the often-polarizing topic of artificial sweeteners, covering these questions and more.

Here are some of the topics we’ll cover and questions we’ll answer in this episode of BioTrust Radio:

  • What are the most common artificial sweeteners and where are they found?
  • What about sugar alcohols? And do they affect people differently?
  • What does the research say about frequent consumption of diet sodas?
  • Are artificial sweeteners keto?
  • Can artificial sweeteners negatively impact the gut similar to antibiotics?
  • What does the latest research say about artificial sweeteners?
  • Do artificial sweeteners affect people differently, causing negative outcomes in only certain people?
  • Do artificial sweeteners really cause weight gain, or are they guilty by association?
  • Do artificial sweeteners stimulate the appetite and “trick” the brain into seeking more food for “missing” calories?
  • If you’re keto, should you be careful with your consumption of artificial sweeteners, including sugar alcohols?
  • Does the problem really like solely with artificial sweeteners, or do we need to take a look at the vehicle they’re packaged in?
  • Is the pervasiveness of added sweetness – sugar and artificial sweeteners alike – the real problem?
  • And more!
