Zero Calorie Sweeteners & Weight Gain – Health News

Tim Van Orden discussing a new study on the effect of zero calories sweeteners on the brain.

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.

    Excellent piece, and with information I believe you’ve touched on before.
    Easy to understand, thanks Tim.

  2. Hi Tim,
    I thought the chemical /food companies would have done lots of tests on those fake sweeteners before the FDA would let them sell the drinks, no?

    I admit to having a Diet Dew addiction, however I only drink it when eating. Wouldn’t I be consuming calories while drinking an artificially sweet beverage? Hence, no need for the brain to rewire?
