Fake Sugar & Fake Fat Leads to Weight GAIN – – and Diarrhea

Fake Sugar & Fake Fat Leads to Weight GAIN – – and Diarrhea

The June 20, 2011 article in Science Daily showed that eating fake fat in low-calorie chips and other foods could contribute to weight gain & obesity,

“Synthetic fat substitutes used in low-calorie potato chips and other foods could backfire and contribute to weight gain and obesity, according to a study published by the American Psychological Association.”
Olestra is the fake fat and many people get sick with diarrhea when eating olestra chips.

Eat a half a can of Pringles Sour Cream & Onion Fat Free Chips – and you have just dumped 10 teaspoons of sugar into your blood. Pringles are notoriously full of harmful ingredients besides Olestra:

  • GMO corn ingredients like Maltodextrin, Dextrose, Citric Acid
  • Brain cell damaging Monosodium Glutamate
  • Possible hidden MSG from Natural and Artificial Flavors
  • Trans Fats from Mono- and Di-Glycerides

Wow, what a deal –  Eat these low cal, fake-fat chips and get diarrhea and gain new fat! Not to mention the fact that you will set yourself for a blood sugar roller coaster ride that will drive your cravings mad!



Why would a fat substitute confuse the body?

Food with a sweet or fatty taste usually indicates a large number of calories, and the taste triggers various responses by the body, including salivation, hormonal secretions and metabolic reactions. Fat substitutes can interfere with that relationship when the body expects to receive a large burst of calories but is fooled by a fat substitute.”

Researchers also found that eating artificial sweeteners leads to weight gain and increased body fat.

“The use of artificial sweeteners and fat substitutes has increased dramatically over the past 30 years, mirroring the increase in obesity in America.”

You can’t have your cake and eat it too, after all.
