I’ve also decided to start a new video series which covers the latest breaking news in the world of nutrition. I’m calling it ‘Nutrition News’ 🙂
In this segment, I discuss a new study out of the University of California in San Diego that appeared in the Journal of Physiology and Behavior which looked at zero calorie sweeteners and their effects on the brain and weight gain.
The findings of this study are quite shocking – whether you are consuming artificial zero calorie sweeteners like aspartame, or natural zero calorie sweeteners like stevia, these substances effectively rewire the brain’s reward system in a harmful way.
If you are consuming diet soda or other zero calorie drinks, you could be setting yourself up for increased weight gain as your brain becomes rewired and craves even more calories throughout the day.
