One of the questions I'm asked repeatedly is about artificial sweeteners. Which is the best? Are any of them ok?
I am cautious about them because they appear to raise insulin. Insulin is a hormone which turns on fat storage mode. It triggers increased hunger, cravings and ultimately weight gain if as as result, you eat some more food.
Here is a recent post from Authority Nutrition on the topic.
