Break Your Sugar Substitute Addiction - Root Beer and Orange Soda Recipes

Today (1-09-2012) Dr. Oz did an episode on breaking your addiction to sugar substitutes. Millions of Americans use sugar substitutes every day thinking that this will help them lose weight. Dr. Oz says that in the end, the opposite may be the case.  He said that the average American consumes a whopping 24 pounds of artificial sweeteners a year!

Recent research has shown that artificial sweeteners like saccharin, aspartame, and sucralose, can trigger hunger cravings and make you eat more!  This can lead to weight gain and all of the diseases that accompany obesity.

Dr. Oz said that artificial sweeteners are much stronger than regular sugar and can cause you to crave the artificial sweeteners in much the same way as people crave sugar.  Today Dr. Oz talks about how to overcome your sugar substitute addiction in only 7 Days.

Aspartame is 200 times sweeter than sugar.  Saccharin is 500 times sweeter, and sucralose is 600 times sweeter than sugar!

Dr. Oz 7 Day Plan To Break Sugar Substitute Addiction

Day 1 - Instead of using artificial sweetener in your coffee use a natural sugar substitute called Stevia.  It is 30 times sweeter than sugar.  It has zero calories and comes from an herb.

Day 2 - Use Maple syrup instead of artificial sweeteners like aspartame in yogurt.

Day 3 - Agave nectar gummies - Dr. Oz said that agave nectar won't burn out your taste bud like artificial sweeteners will. You will have less cravings for sugar when you use this as a healthy alternative to artificial sweeteners.

Arctic Zero Bars - If you are looking for an after dinner dessert, try Arctic Zero Ice Cream Bars.  They are low in calories and contain no artificial sweeteners.
